SlimeSalad Chatroom (Rules Update 10/1/2011)

I have decided to attempt opening an IRC channel for Slime Salad. Castle Paradox has one, but it has sort of devolved in to having nothing to do with game-making, and I'd like to encourage OHR users (especially newer ones) to get some dialogue going about the engine and its games. We'll see how it works anyway.

Anybody is welcome to join in, although I ask that you not harass or insult any users on the channel. Doing so as a joke is different from telling somebody they're a failure. This doesn't happen too much even in the other OHR channels, but I really want to discourage it. I think it is always possible to have constructive discussion about games.

The aim of the channel is for people to be able to ask quick questions about OHR features and games. For instance, if you have a quick question like "how do I script this easily" or "what buttons do I press to do this in the editor" we can help. It'd also be a great place to meet other OHR users and ask for feedback on games. Sometimes posting on forums just doesn't cut it, as many of us know.

Anyway, the channel's already set up on espernet.
#Slimesalad

Here's how you get on it, for those who have no idea how to use IRC.

1. First, get an IRC client. There are many, and you can Google them, but I recommend mIRC (which is lightweight) and Trillian. (which you can plug all your IM clients in to as well. If you already have it, go to Manage Accounts and create an IRC identity)
2. Next, you will need to set up your nickname in settings. If anyone doesn't understand how to do this I'll explain.
3. Connect to Espernet. I recommend going in settings and adding it as one of the default connections, but you can also type:
Code:
/connect irc.esper.net

4. Join the channel, #slimesalad.
Code:
/join #slimesalad


If you plan on frequenting a channel, I recommend adding the join in to your Perform buffer (Which is in the IRC options).

NEW RULE INSTATED 10/1/1011:
"Slime Salad After Dark" is in effect
Let's keep the dirty/sex-related/otherwise adult discussion out of the chat until 10 PM EST. Why? Well, people tend to pop in looking for actual OHR help earlier in the day, and that kind of thing could be distracting. I'm not against the discussion, but let's try and stay focused on games primarily, especially during daylight hours. This isn't a STRICT rule, but it is something that I will enforce if necessary.

As Giz stated better than I: Keep #SS PG-13 till 10 PM EST | Cry me a river

Slight mishap in the chat this morning, so I would like to once again stress that this channel is meant to be a friendly, positive environment. Violators can and will be ban-hammered at any of the moderators' wills.

It's not down. You might have to try connecting to specific servers, such as irc.chocobo.net

Good times in #slimesalad: We figure out how to manipulate the Castle Paradox gamelist.

I'm close to being unbanned from the IRC server. Perhaps then I'll be able to meet up with some of you and continue with the dominion tournament.

Just tried that, all I found was "this domain for sale."

I'd been wondering why I couldn't go to IRC last dozen or so times I tried.
In the past, I apologized when I was in the right because I was afraid of peer pressure. For this, I apologize.

I must be cruel, but to be kind; that bad may begin, and worse be left behind.

Nathan Karr: It'd actually be chocobo.esper.net. But you're better off just using "irc.esper.net" and connect to a random server.

Also, you'd need to use mIRC to connect to the server. I'm not sure how you'd get a "this domain for sale" message.

rather just use WWW.esper.net , then go to "Chat Now", put in your nickname, and put the handle #slimesalad in, then connect.

thank you for your concern but it's an IP ban. So I'd need another IP not another client.
However, if you can get me another IP I'd be grateful.
