This section will help you get on our online chat room.
How Do I Chat?
There are two methods of joining our chat room. The first and easiest
way is to go to to the "Chat" section of the site. There you
will find a Java Applet that allows you to access the channel. While this
Applet runs very well, if you plan to frequent the channel or are an experienced
user, you may want to use MIrc or
another similar chat program.
The program IS registered. You need to makes sure the address bar of your browser is pointing to the correct page: http://www.automags.org/chat/index.shtml. It MUST say www.automags.org, not just automags.org. >> TopWhat Is MIrc?
MIrc is an easy to use and very popular IRC chat program. You can download
it for free at www.mirc.com.
There are other programs out there that perform similarly to MIrc that
you may also want to use.
We have our own server at irc.automags.org, in room #automags. >> TopHow do I do an ACTION? (I.E. Nick shoots an Automag)
Type: /me then what ever action you want. >> TopWhat are the Rules?
Why was I Kicked/Banned?
Probably for repeatedly breaking one of the rules on the right. OPs may also Kick/Ban you for disrupting the channel. The chat room is a bit looser than the Forum. That means you can get away with more, but at the same time OPs may kick you at their discretion. We also use scripts that may automatically kick or ban users for cussing, flooding, clones, and using all caps. >> TopWhat is an OP?
An OP is a channel OPerator. They make sure people are behaving and keep the peace. They are responsible for kicking and banning people from the channel who misbehave. >> TopCan I Be an Op?
No - only Moderators, Techs, and the Webmaster (as well as Tom Kaye,
the head honcho) are allowed to have Ops. >> Top
