Title: CAPOF IRC chat!
Post by: Colt25 on October 07, 2012, 08:02:04 PM
 Come chat with us! (http://mibbit.com/?channel=%23CAPOF&server=irc.mibbit.net)

Enter your desired nickname (mine is my forum name)
And click the "GO" button. It will do it's thing for a few seconds, (Dont type anything else in) and you should be all set.

NOTE: This is an idling thing, If you see nobody there, please keep this chat in an open tab while you are on your computer and check back every half hour to see if anything happened. That way we can have more chats. I've put a lot into this and would like people to use this chat and have a great time. Thanks!

**Basic commands are**

/nick (your desired name) For changing your name while staying in the room
/join #(Channel you wish to join) To join another channel

I will give OPS (operator) status to admins of the forum. That gives you the ability to kick, boot, and ban people.
Please do NOT perma ban people for over one week as this room is forgiving.

#CAPOF Chat Channel Rules

Age limit
You are required to be at least 16 years old to come and chat on #CAPOF. We are not responsible for the display of explicit content to people who are not legally allowed to see such content.

If we suspect a user is under the age of 16, access to #CAPOF may be suspended until we can verify the user's age. False identification will result in a one week ban from the channel.

Nicknames
Nicknames shouldn't be offensive to other visitors, ethnic or religious points of view, or minorities of any kind. While we are mostly grown-ups over here, extremely explicit nicknames are prohibited. When asked by an operator to change your nickname, you are advised to do so.

Banners, color, and caps
Excessive use of banners (visual messages that consist of multiple lines of text, usually with multiple colors), color or caps (shouting) is prohibited. Moderate use is allowed as long as it doesn't impact the ongoing conversation or annoy people. Operators may disable color if deemed necessary.

Flooding
Entering random characters, nonsense, or lots of text in a very short period of time is prohibited. Excessive flooding will immediately result in getting kicked from the channel.

Trolling, flamebaiting and general idiocracy

Trolling, flamebaiting and other idiotic, malicious, disrespectful acts do a disservice to the chat and will result in a short-term ban.
Repeated breaking of this rule will result in a long-term or perm-ban.

Explicit language, nudity, pornography, 18+ content
Use of excessive explicit language, racial slurs, remarks and other types of offensive behaviour is absolutely not tolerated.

We might have an age limit, but #CAPOF is not a porn channel. That effectively means that users are not allowed to post or link to explicit pornographic material. If you want to post nudity that falls within this policy, please make sure to add [NSFW] before the link. So something like:
"[NSFW] http://www.somewebsite.com/blah/somehotgirl.jpg (http://www.somewebsite.com/blah/somehotgirl.jpg)"
By adding the NSFW (Not Safe For Work) tag, people know what to expect.

Illegal activities
The policy of the OFTC network states that illegal activities will result in an immediate ban from the OFTC network. There's nothing we can or will do about that.

Disputes between users
In general, we don't interfere with disputes between users, except for making sure our channel does not become a battle ground. We don't pick sides, we don't judge.

Disputes with operators
If there is a dispute between a user and an operator, and the involved parties are unable to resolve the dispute, a mediator may be assigned by or within the ops-team.

Getting banned
If a user repeatedly or excessively breaks the channel policy, the user could get banned from the channel. Banning is a last-resort measure, and we have 2 sorts of bans:

rejoin-ban: in this case, a user gets banned, kicked, and unbanned shortly after. This ban is used to prevent the auto-rejoin functionality of a client.
short-term ban: a short-term ban is a timed ban that lasts for somewhere between 6 hours and one week, depending on the case. The user will be informed in the kick-message of the duration of the ban.


I currently own the room but I'd be willing to hand it over to Brutuz if he so desires.

If any admins from the forum does NOT want a chat room. Feel free to let me know, and I will remove my posts, and close the room.

Thank you! Happy chatting!

Well done, thanks  :) :-*

Maybe change the topic title and we could make it sticky

Let's leave it in your hands for the time being and evaluate somewhere during first week November.

Meanwhile those who chatted, please let us know if you like the chat etc.

Personal: I started chatting 1999/2000' ish but it only lasted a few weeks, I don't like online chat rooms

This is really where chat could be valuable. We are all in a different place and in different time zones. The forum is perfect for different time/different place communications. Chat would be more useful if there was a specific time/event we could plan on.

We just have to get the word out.

When you come in, say Hi. That way It tells me when someone says something.
Please Pin this Brutuz, it will really get the word out.

I think it would be better here unless we have a problem with trolls.
Its easier and faster to access the chat without logging on, and it will let people ask questions about the forum if they are wondering about joining,
But if you feel its best to move it to off topic, I have no problem with that.

Thanks
Title: Re: CAPOF IRC chat!
Post by: Colt25 on October 11, 2012, 01:44:14 AM
Today we had a perverted troll. NOT a member, NOT asking questions about the forum.
This is NOT PHOTOSHOP! look at the picture at your own risk. We NEED more ops, more ops means a safer environment. And harder for hackers.
Please look at the picture at your own risk, again, this is NOT photoshop!
Title: Re: CAPOF IRC chat!
Post by: Colt25 on October 11, 2012, 01:52:45 AM
If I see ANYbody (even admins to the forum) doing something disrespectful, I will kick them. It is NOT a ban.
But if things persist with one single person, I will ban them. Bans can last between 6 hours to 3 months, but a perma ban is forever.

Just trying to keep a safe environment for everyone.
Take care.

I think we should move it only if we have a problem with trolls flooding, spamming, or too many trolls for the chat to function.
If that happens, defiantly move it to off topic.
I am working my best to keep trolls out and giving people ops. The more people with ops. The harder it is for Trojans and hackers to get in.

In my opinion, the chat is a great idea, but... it is not reasonable to expect that you can just drop by any time YOU want and somebody will be there.  I believe you would have more participation and use if times... or times and certain days were earmarked for chat. Maybe start with one day and a time after work and dinner for the continental US... say Thursday at 9 pm EDT (or some other day or time).  Then if that gets "popular", add another day with the participants' input.

Just trying to help.

FWIW, I appreciate you bringing the MIBBIT site to my attention.  It is used nearly every night at 9pm for private "think tank" discussions that would require immediate sanctioning if I were to tell you any more than you need to know.   8) :-X ;)  ;D ;D ;D

Did you get in with the chat button on the top left of the page?  I keep getting connection failed but I think Brutz is working on that still?
Same here, but I bet Brutuz is still on it since it ain't working.  :)

Sorry Colt hasn't been online, no clue what I could alter here to the chat-plug-in or what Colt could alter to the chat account itself to make it work :(

I wouldn't sweat it Bert... too many folks have tried too many times and the chat sponsor is hardly ever there anyway, seems a waste o' time and bandwidth IMO.

Ya, it's a lost cause Bert but we thank you for trying to get it to work.

Like I said before, hardly anyone ever stopped in to talk. Davio and I went on to our own channel, using it like an instant messenger program.

IRC chats are finicky, and stubborn, and the whole 9 yards.
I say we have a vote. Try and fix it, or just let it go.
IDK what I can do...

To Bert:
I received your PM and the one you sent me was like a screenshot with active links. It looked like posts from the forum. Was this intentional?

Was about settings, no probs I'll remove it from the control panel, members can click through to the chat within this topic.

Can you have the chat button redirect directly to the chat link? Like if you were to go into this topic.

Ah, Could you remove the two first posts to this topic then? It will be easier to find the link for  :)

I tried several time to go to the chat, but when I hit the enter button the server seems to go in circles. After about 30 seconds, I'm told no such plase.
Oh well!

Thank you for your input! I have changed it a bit and now all you have to do it enter in your name and the channel is automatic.

I would really like to get into the chat room, but have had no luck. Maybe I'm not using the right URL. Please post the URL to use, maybe with a stickie?
Thanks,

first post in this sticky thread

Come chat with us! (http://mibbit.com/?channel=%23CAPOF&server=irc.mibbit.net)

Enter your desired nickname (mine is my forum name)
And click the "GO" button. It will do it's thing for a few seconds, (Dont type anything else in) and you should be all set.

NOTE: This is an idling thing, If you see nobody there, please keep this chat in an open tab while you are on your computer and check back every half hour to see if anything happened. That way we can have more chats. I've put a lot into this and would like people to use this chat and have a great time. Thanks!

**Basic commands are**

/nick (your desired name) For changing your name while staying in the room
/join #(Channel you wish to join) To join another channel

I will give OPS (operator) status to admins of the forum. That gives you the ability to kick, boot, and ban people.
Please do NOT perma ban people for over one week as this room is forgiving.

#CAPOF Chat Channel Rules

Age limit
You are required to be at least 16 years old to come and chat on #CAPOF. We are not responsible for the display of explicit content to people who are not legally allowed to see such content.

If we suspect a user is under the age of 16, access to #CAPOF may be suspended until we can verify the user's age. False identification will result in a one week ban from the channel.

Nicknames
Nicknames shouldn't be offensive to other visitors, ethnic or religious points of view, or minorities of any kind. While we are mostly grown-ups over here, extremely explicit nicknames are prohibited. When asked by an operator to change your nickname, you are advised to do so.

Banners, color, and caps
Excessive use of banners (visual messages that consist of multiple lines of text, usually with multiple colors), color or caps (shouting) is prohibited. Moderate use is allowed as long as it doesn't impact the ongoing conversation or annoy people. Operators may disable color if deemed necessary.

Flooding
Entering random characters, nonsense, or lots of text in a very short period of time is prohibited. Excessive flooding will immediately result in getting kicked from the channel.

Trolling, flamebaiting and general idiocracy

Trolling, flamebaiting and other idiotic, malicious, disrespectful acts do a disservice to the chat and will result in a short-term ban.
Repeated breaking of this rule will result in a long-term or perm-ban.

Explicit language, nudity, pornography, 18+ content
Use of excessive explicit language, racial slurs, remarks and other types of offensive behaviour is absolutely not tolerated.

We might have an age limit, but #CAPOF is not a porn channel. That effectively means that users are not allowed to post or link to explicit pornographic material. If you want to post nudity that falls within this policy, please make sure to add [NSFW] before the link. So something like:
"[NSFW] http://www.somewebsite.com/blah/somehotgirl.jpg (http://www.somewebsite.com/blah/somehotgirl.jpg)"
By adding the NSFW (Not Safe For Work) tag, people know what to expect.

Illegal activities
The policy of the OFTC network states that illegal activities will result in an immediate ban from the OFTC network. There's nothing we can or will do about that.

Disputes between users
In general, we don't interfere with disputes between users, except for making sure our channel does not become a battle ground. We don't pick sides, we don't judge.

Disputes with operators
If there is a dispute between a user and an operator, and the involved parties are unable to resolve the dispute, a mediator may be assigned by or within the ops-team.

Getting banned
If a user repeatedly or excessively breaks the channel policy, the user could get banned from the channel. Banning is a last-resort measure, and we have 2 sorts of bans:

rejoin-ban: in this case, a user gets banned, kicked, and unbanned shortly after. This ban is used to prevent the auto-rejoin functionality of a client.
short-term ban: a short-term ban is a timed ban that lasts for somewhere between 6 hours and one week, depending on the case. The user will be informed in the kick-message of the duration of the ban.


I currently own the room but I'd be willing to hand it over to Brutuz if he so desires.

If any admins from the forum does NOT want a chat room. Feel free to let me know, and I will remove my posts, and close the room.

Thank you! Happy chatting!

How about an "audible" alert. For example...You have the chat minimized (nobody else on), someone logs in and they can send an audible alert that they are logged in on chat. You can then hear the alert/sound and open your chat. Had this on another chat and it worked great. They had all kinds of crazy sounds...Machine gun, bear growling, dogs barking, explosions, etc.

Well, I don't have the time for it now. But if you'd like to do some research on it and could let me know how to do it that'd be great!

Thanks, I looked at those.

The first one is for a website, the second is for a chat service (downloadable non internet based client)
and the third is for a liverspoon chat service.


The CAPOF chat uses Mibbit widget (not a client) that is internet based.
I'll do some researching tonight and will get back to you:)
If someone chats, the tab on your browser  will say "People are talking" or something similar.
