FSTDT IRC and how to get there
« on: January 04, 2012, 03:57:05 am »
server: irc.digibase.ca

channel: #fstdt

To access via Mibbit:
1) select "Server" from the menu; input the server above.
2) enter your forum name in the "Nick" box with underscores ( _ ) in place of spaces if necessary
3) enter "#fstdt" (without the quotations) in the "Channel" box
4) if you have a password for your nick, click the "Auth" link; otherwise, skip to step 7
5) select "NickServ" from the pulldown menu that appeared in step 4
6) enter your password in the input box that appeared in step 4
7) press the "go" button

To access via ST Webchat, here
1) enter your forum name in the "Nickname" box with underscores ( _ ) in place of spaces if necessary
2) Upon entering the channel, if your nickname is already registered, you have 60 seconds to enter your nickname's password in the text box with the following code:
    Code:
   
Code: [Select]
/msg nickserv identify [password] if you have a password for your nick; if not, skip to step 4
4) press the "Connect" button

If your way of getting onto the IRC is different (IE you use Pidgin or Trillian) and you don't know how to get on, feel free to ask.


---------------------------------------------------
Please, PLEASE register your nick!
To register your nick type the following into the chat input box:

    Code:
   
Code: [Select]
/msg nickserv register [password] [email]

where [password] is your chosen password (without the brackets) and [email] is your email address (without the brackets). Remember that your password is CASE SENSITIVE! A password set to ExamPle will not be accepted if it is later typed as Example or example or EXAMPLE or any other variation.


Once your nick is registered, you should enter the following every time you enter the channel unless you use the shortcuts outlined above:

    Code:
   
Code: [Select]
/msg nickserv identify [password]

This will enable you to access special permissions that will be enabled by the OPs.


---------------------------------------------------
Following is the list of current Channel OPs:
Channel Founder:
Keiro

Access lvl 10:
Distind
Kradorex

Half-Op:
chad sexington


---------------------------------------------------------------------------


If you have any questions or comments, or are experiencing technical problems with the IRC, post here. If your question, comment, or problem is of a private (but relevant) nature, or if for whatever reason you do not wish to post it in the forums, PM whichever OP you think has the permissions to handle what you need handled. If that OP does not have the permissions, they will either direct you to the proper OP or speak to that OP on your behalf.

If you have been banned from the chat, you disagree with an OP action, or a user is doing something you think needs to be taken care of, do not drag it onto the forum threads. If it concerns a general user, PM any given OP if no OP is in the IRC at the time. If it concerns an OP's behavior, PM the OP in question. Once again, DO NOT DRAG YOUR ISSUE ONTO THE FORUMS! The forums and the IRC, while connected, are entirely separate in terms of governing. The forums belong to Keiro and Distind and abide by their laws. The IRC belongs to Keiro, and abides by his laws.

Please note that though some of the Channel OPs are also Forum Mods, not all of them are. Channel OPs can help you with the IRC, not the forums. If you have forum problems, contact a Forum Mod.

Added nifty Chat link at the top. :|

Should render this basically moot, now. Except, obviously, for those who use Mibbit or their own IRC clients.

That was a major pain in the ass to add into the bar.

People so seldom say "I love you". And then it's either too late or love goes. So when I tell you I love you, It doesn't mean I know you'll never go, only that I wish you didn't have to.

Why am I not surprised that it's now on Keiro's server? :P

Because we wanted a private place to watch the first ever FSTDT Sexlympics.

I'm running into the same problem I had before now that the link uses Mibbit: I can't find the server on the dropdown menu.

... Follow the directions in the OP. specifically, the one listed for Mibbit.

I've followed all the directions but I seem to be the only one who's online every time.

Also, why does the Chat button link to Mibbit, now?

These are the directions you should be following. That includes you, Lithp:

server: irc.shatteredtears.com

channel: #fstdt

To access via Mibbit:
1) select "Server" from the menu; input the server above.
2) enter your forum name in the "Nick" box with underscores ( _ ) in place of spaces if necessary
3) enter "#fstdt" (without the quotations) in the "Channel" box
4) if you have a password for your nick, click the "Auth" link; otherwise, skip to step 7
5) select "NickServ" from the pulldown menu that appeared in step 4
6) enter your password in the input box that appeared in step 4
7) press the "go" button

And as for why, it's because the ST Webchat is down because I don't have enough to cover the bill for the server hosting the Webchat.

I tried that, but I keep getting hung up on that step where I have to enter the server. If you want me to click on that thing next to the dropbox that says server, that doesn't do anything. Frankly, I thought it was cosmetic.

I can't go into the chat anymore! I just keep getting the Mibbit thing and that one doesn't want to work! :(

And I was so happy I could chat again in the new forums. DAMNIT!!

I resolved my issue, & just in case it helps everyone else:

For some reason, if the screen is too large & it cuts the text of the link off partially, the WHOLE link won't work. So if you're only seeing "Serve," then you might want to try using Ctrl- to shrink the screen. You can always expand it again once you're in the chat.

Well, I can't get anything to work for me, so... I guess I'm screwed for chatting again. Sorry to all those who liked visiting with me in there, but with the old chat gone, I can't do anything.

Have you tried a standalone client like mIRC, XChat-WDK, KVIRC, IceChat, Irssi, something like that? I use XChat myself and it works great. I can help you if needed. :P
