    Members will behave themselves properly, thats why there are ops. But the unofficial part keeps 3ds from being directly responsible from any legal action that may come of an 8 year old learning the "S" word.

    & such is the nature of "chat rooms."

    Yes check out the posts at the beginning of this thread. I think Didou explains it fairly well in there how to register, if not, post back and we'll get you set up:)

    i can use PIRCH for this IRC chat thing, right?
    but there's no "starchat" in the server listing.

    Can you manually add it? I had to do that on my linux system.

    just type /server reality.no.eu.starchat.net:6667 - should work for you
    then type /join #3DSpotlight

    should work

    Hope you can figure it out EASILY that is. It would be good to talk to someone new.:D
    not that the people in there now are not fun to talk to, but new people are always nice.
    And I welcome Vehementi to the channel

    to be marked as away just type:
    /away <insert message here>
    and when you're back, type /away again...

    And just a little reminder on how you get authorized...
    /nickserv identify <insert password here>

    I dropped in and all of you were sleeping :rolleyes:

    Pretty cool channel. Someone should post this up as front page news. I didn't even know the channel was up and running.... but I guess it's just my fault for not reading this thread. :p

    i'ev been thinking...

    i've been thinking about all this...
    i think if it's posted on the front page, people may think it's an official channel. they'll think it's some sort of live tech support or sth (as some people may think the mods are tech supports).
    if it is actually posted on the front page, then it should be stated clearly that it's not an official 3DS channel, nor is it a live tech support. just where the members hang out.

    Yes, and then it would also be bound by the same sort of rules as the TOS here.

    The freedom from a lot of the restrictive protocols of the forums of one of the channel's strengths already.

    Let's leave it an unofficial channel, I say.

    Well that isn't our fault.....now is it??:p

    Just kidding, glad to see you decided to stop by. Hope to see you on there sometime, when I am not sleeping of course:)


    As far as the idea of posting something about the channel on the frontpage of 3DS, I don't like the thought that people would come in only to talk about problems. I enjoy our conversations all the time, even if they are pretty dumb most of the time :). But they are fun none the least. I don't think bringing serious hard core problems in there would go over too well. I like sitting in there just to relax.

    Yeah... that's true. I would imagine a lot of newbies would come in and start asking away. So let's just limit that to only me who's allowed to bug ya with my computer problems in the channel. :p ;)

    We've allready been visited by quite a few "characters" in there without having the channel on the frontpage, just imagine what would happen if we did put it there :D

    PS. Last night Phantazmm actually took his mask off. I almost fainted ;)

    Hehe... Last night, quite a lot happened.... And I don't think that chat session would've been appropriate for everyone...

    So Let's keep the channel of the front page...

    Its okay every once in a while, but not all the time:D. That would just get way out of hand :eek:
    But your problems are always welcome :haha:

    Now I am mad that I missed out on that conversation. I am there for a bunch of them, and YES they are usually pretty good, now I'm gonna have to ask one of you next time I see you on IRC what it was all about, if you don't tell me then :punch:

    /edit: well it appears that the punch icon doesn't work. Maybe look into fixing that.

    tell you what, i'm ALWAYS missing the conversations. since the time difference is so great, i'm getting used to seeing everyone sleeping or going to klass! :haha:
    i think the time difference between Siam and the UK is about 9 hrs. and 12 hrs with the US...

    If you've got a permanent connection, just stay in the channel and log what happens...

    If not, get an eggdrop bot and get it to log everything that happens in the channel... (Note, you'll need access to a server to do that)

    Re: A short howto :)

    This is how you do it! If this doesn't work, let me know and I'll explain it again, maybe in a little easier detail. And if all else fails, reread this whole thread. There have been quite a few questions about this.

    Thanks poertner_1274! I'll have to get mIRC first and try this out in the next couple of days.
