The Elfpack Chat is a real-time IRC chatroom, with members of Elfpack and moderated by the Chat Bosses, who are OP's in the chatroom.


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 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?

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>
