Elfpack Chat, FAQ


Q) I don't want to use the below widget, what server is the chat located on?
A) The Elfpack chat on the irc.esper.net server, with the channel name #Elfpack.

Q) What does "OP" mean?
A) Operator. It's another term for Moderator or Boss.

Q) I sometimes see people who are not listed as one of the Chat Bosses with OP-status, why is that?
A) Sometimes, a Chat Boss may decide to give another highly-trusted member a temporary OP status that lasts until they log out. This is generally due to the assigned chat bosses not being there to moderate things.


Q) I'd like to be a Chat Boss, how do I become one?
A) Well, before even asking this question you should make sure you're active and talkative in the chat. The current Chat Bosses will contact members they feel would make good new bosses, should their be a need for them.


Q) I don't know how to use this chat, I'm completely confused.
A) You just type your username into the chat-box widget located below. For a list of commands you can use in the chat, look below the chat widget.


Q) Someone's being an asshole and there's no OP on. What do I do?
A) The answer to this is also located below the chat widget. ;)


Q) This doesn't work for me! What do I do?
A) There's many different ways to access IRC online. You can message [Stephen], our chat-technician if you need help.


Q) I have a question not on this list!
A) You can either ask in this comment box, or message one of the Chat Bosses directly.


The Chat Bosses are the official OP's of the Elfpack Channel and moderate it.

General Information and Useful Commands


Command                              What it does
/me <action>                         Performs an actions. IE: Stephen dances.
/nick <newnickname>                  Changes your nickname into the entered nickname.

/away <message>                      Displays an away message when someone uses the "/whois" command on you.




Don't be an asshole!
Don't flood the channel with spam, don't harass people, don't try to get everyone to have sex with you, etc. Doing so will get you kicked/banned.

Try to write correctly
You don't need to use perfect English, but no one feels like trying to decode your typing. Some typo's and grammar messups are OK, but at least try to type normal text.

Listen to and respect the mods!
What they say is final. In the chat, the mods are just like the Elfpack Guards.


If someone is being an asshole


If there's no mod on and someone is being an asshole, do the following:

1) Type "/whois <harasser's nick>"
2) Find the "hostmark" of the harasser. (It should look like "24-180-208-36", just with different numbers)
3) Copy what the harasser is doing (screenshot is even better) and the harasser's hostmark. Send them to [Stephen] in a PM.
4) Type /ignore <harasser's nickname>

Login problems?

2011-09-07 [Stephen]: Naaah.

Keep trying! ;)

2011-09-07 [wolvie]: never! >.<

2011-09-07 [HeAVenShallBuRN]: I wonder how many people are gonna have me on ignore in this thing...

2011-09-07 [wolvie]: no reason to worry about it if they do they do big deal *shrugs*

2011-09-07 [HeAVenShallBuRN]: I wanan be a chat boss!

2011-09-07 [Stephen]: You're not even in the chat. =P

'Sides, unless it gets more popular I'm not sure we need more than three bosses. I'd be willing to accept a fourth if they're super active and can be logged on the chat most of the day in case the other bosses aren't there.

2011-09-07 [HeAVenShallBuRN]: :) How about boss-in training!

2011-09-07 [wolvie]: how about nose inclined?

2011-09-07 [Ritsuka-Kun]: rawr

2011-09-07 [wolvie]: shut up kitty! noone loves you!

2011-09-07 [Stephen]: xD

Wolvie keeps joining and leave. Ritsuka didn't stay long enough for me to respond. =(

2011-09-07 [Ritsuka-Kun]: lol i chatted but i has rp's to respond to xD to bad it doesnt keep us logged in

2011-09-07 [wolvie]: it keeps kicking me off :O so i gave up it just randomly knocks me back to the nickname page then says my nickname is taken

2011-09-07 [HeAVenShallBuRN]: lol java and this do not mix

2011-09-07 [0-Aki]: I can't make it work for me, I type things in, but they never show up :c

2011-09-07 [Stephen]: @Ritsu: Just open another tab to keep the chat open in a tab.

@Wolvie: That must have something to do with your ping timeout. There's not much I can do to help you. /= 
BTW, it says your nickname is taken because you don't exit the chat normally, so you stay logged in for a few minutes -- thus you try to log on a nickname that's already online.

@Jimmy: Huh? I use Java actively and I don't have any issues.

@Aiden: Try refreshing away from the page and then coming back to test it again.


@All of you: Jeeze. So many problems on a simple widget that all you need to do is type a username. D: There's been traffic going through for the past 18 or so hours, so I'm not sure why some of you have issues. I'll (probably) post up a second iframe-client that you can use to get in, just because there seems to be so many issues with this one.


=P

2011-09-07 [wolvie]: it's weird it works great for me if I use google chrome but when on internet explorer it doesn't work @_@ it clearly hates me xD

2011-09-07 [La Fleur de La Croix]: Internet Explorer is the best browser...for downloading other browsers. That's about it. IE is horrid. I used to use Firefox but it had a problem (it started using 90%+ of my resources) so I switched to Chrome. Rarely ever do I have a problem with Chrome.

2011-09-07 [wolvie]: I like chrome if I have a good internet connection but it annoys me on elfpack it scrolls to the comments section at first then randomly goes back to the top as the page loads so it annoys me xD

2011-09-07 [La Fleur de La Croix]: It does that for me, too. My laptop is a lot worse than my PC since my laptop goes to the bottom of the page and freezes there for a good 10-15 seconds. :/ Not sure why it does that but since I mostly just read comments on pages, it's not a big deal for me.

2011-09-07 [wolvie]: *nods* it doesn't do it if I have a better connection but I dunno it greatly annoys me so I use internet explorer more often then not
