IRC Channel Rules: #smwc (08/10/2009)

Link Thread Closed
First of all, if you are curious to know what IRC is, it is basically realtime chat with other users of our fine community. We act stupid, we act smart, and we have various conversations here - it's basically one big chatroom. We encourage you to download an IRC client, like mIRC, enter your nick, go to caffie.net and join us at #smwc.

On to the meat of this annoucement. We have discussed the IRC in the staff forum for a while now, and since I am now your dictator, there are going to be some new rules put into play. Follow them, and you will have a fun, enjoyable stay at #smwc.

1. No excessive flaming of other users. By excessive flaming, I mean don't do things like "you are a failure at life. get the fuck out and go shove a hot splint into your eye". That is totally unacceptable and it just makes you look like more of a retard than you probably already were. Jokes towards users are fine - we all do them - but if you are seriously flaming someone and insulting them, you will be dealt with.

2. No excessive spamming. #smwc has generally been known as a channel where you can let off steam, and do whatever you want. This will remain true - however, excessive spamming is not wanted. If you are going to come on to the channel to type "DICK DICK DICK DICK DICK DICK" or "ANUS ANUS ANUS ANUS" or any other sexual organ, including the uterus and the labia majora, then you will be removed from the channel. Sure, we all have our bursts, but if you are a constant troublemaker, you will be dealt with.

3. As of now, sexual/porn links are not welcome in the channel. Do remember that there are many underaged users, and they don't need to be exposed to this stuff.

4. No excessive nick changing/leaving/joining. I'm not alone when I say that this is very irritating to deal with ("USER A IS NOW KNOWN AS USER AA IS NOW KNOWN AS ...) If you want to change your nick, fine, but if you are purposely doing it over and over to annoy people, you can leave.

5. #smwc does not equal 4chan! Stuff like OVER 9000 and "tits or gtfo" constantly is not funny. If you say it, you are probably a lame soul. Therefore, save yourself the trouble from the operators and don't waste your time saying these ridiculously unfunny memes.

6. NO DRAMA! It is safe to say that every other user on IRC has problems of their own which will periodically pop up. If all you're going to do is come on and complain about how miserable your life is, or pick a fight with another user, you will be warned. If you continue , you will be removed. We all have bad days, but remember that you're talking to people over the Internet. Unless you have a close friend who you can query and talk out your problems with, there is nothing we can do to help you.

The operators have the power to remove you from the channel if they feel you are causing trouble. They also have the power to expel you from the channel forever, if they so wish, or if you are being extremely hurtful/moronic. Have a good time, talk about whatever you want, but if you are just at the channel to cause trouble, then smash your face through the monitor and send me a shard.

If any other staff, or users, would like to add to this, please feel free. Thank you.

tl;dr: Don't be a total moron on IRC and you'll be fine.
Well, this should hopefully make #Nightfall a much better place than the failure it was before these rules were made.
It has recently been getting out of hand... Actually, it was always out of hand. Usually only the spamming happens, which often get out of control.

3. No sexual links/porn. We have #pokepr0n for a reason. (there you go Tat, advertising for your channel too.) We do have younger viewers in the channel who do not need to be exposed to that kind of content at their young age, such as a totally naked Sakuya Izayoi. Discussing porn is find, but if it starts getting out of hand (I.E. hey guys, here is a picture of my penis. Is it about right for my age?) then you will be escorted out.

Ummm.... Why does this rule state that it's okay to talk about porn? I can understand discussing that you think it's wrong/right without going into detail, but... I don't see how you can talk about porn without it including a pic or something.

Also, I get the feeling the "Discussing porn is fine" part is ONLY so KilloZapit will be happy- He is a porn ADDICT in IRC. D:

Because we are not going to instantly ban, kick, etc. someone if they happen to mention a word. If it becomes a constant conversation, then that is a different story - we do not want to listen to that. Killo will be treated as equally as everyone else - if he causes trouble, he will be removed. It's how it will work now.
#nightfall's actually TRYING to enforce rules now? :o

...

Thank you. :D

@LightningWave, yes, though not to the extreme extent. We basically just want to knock it from "completely annoying" to "tolerable and enjoyable"

Glad to hear. Would this apply (with certain exceptions) to the entire SMW Central Initialized subnet? I believe we have so many channels on Initialized that it's safe to say we're a small subnet of sorts.

Lets see... we have: #nightfall

That's about it.
I don't get why people try to post porn and the like in #nightfall. There's a whole channel for stuff like that. XD
What about #smwcentral?
It's not our official channel anymore, and it has become rather inactive anyway.
Your layout has been removed.

Eh, it's more like part of a whole channel for stuff like that.

Question! Why is there not a rule against certain scripts? You KNOW that most people in the IRC like to constantly trigger peoples' scripts for "lulz". It...gets annoying, y'know? (And on that note, what about people changing their nicks just to say they want to Brawl? D: )

I think repeated, blatant setting off of scripts should be taken care of using whatever disciplinary system we have. With the nick-changing thing, obviously, changing nicks isn't a bad thing but when people start changing their nicks to convey messages or to have inappropriate content in them (like whoever it was changing their name to Pedobear last night) then we again, follow the discipline we've outlined.
Player 1: #pokepr0n is not part of the SMWC subnet you fuck up.

I do too know how to script. I told Boing how to keep a script from activating on certain channels. SO HA~

Yes, indeed.
Anyways, glad to see we got rules FINALLY being enforced in #nightfall. I'm tired of Giant Rainbow GIYGAS and all that other drama and crap that goes on.
I am the Eggman! My current Egglayout is to support Sonic Robo Blast 2. I'll change it sometime in the future.
