About: The IRC

Post by Switch on Wed Nov 25, 2015 6:38 pm

I'll rewrite this later more professionally but for now here's the basics to it.

*What is IRC?
Internet relay chat. It's pretty old but it's stable and effective.

*Why do we have one now?
I thought it would be a good alternative to the chatbox. It doesn't have a timeout so you don't have to manually stay connected to camp. It's super lightweight so it won't lagging anything. Plus it works very similar to the old Forumotion chatbox before the redesign. In my opinion every LZP-er should have it open in a tab if they're online, like the old chatbox days Razz

*How do I use it?
Click the link in the Ovaltine bar for the basic version or go here: https://kiwiirc.com/client/chaos.esper.net/#LZP for a more modern version. If you want, you can also use a downloadable client like hexchat.

*What are the commands?
/me (Something) | Same as chatbox
/query (Username) (Some message) | Same as the PM function of the shortlived Chatbox 2.0
/ping (Username) | Beep sounds inbound
/nick (Something) | Changes your name.
And a few others but I won't spoil you finding them out yourself :0

For OPs/Mods there are
!op (Username) | Makes a user an OP. If you don't specify a username it OPs yourself.
!kick (Username) | Kicks a user. Same warning as above applies.
!kickban (Username) | Guess. Also same thing as above applies. Be careful.

*Can I register an account?
You sure can. Set the /nick you want to register then type
Code:
/msg nickserv REGISTER (password) (email)
and then follow the instructions that are sent to you. Make sure to use a unique password just for IRC!
To sign in after registering type
Code:
/msg nickserv IDENTIFY (password)
Make sure you currently have the /nick you used when you registered though.

*What is EsperBot?
A bot run by the Esper admins that OPs mods when they join and autobans spammers. Nothing else to say.

*What is SwitchBot?
My bot. It says nonsense but it's kinda funny sometimes. Rarely but sometimes coherent.

_______

Well, that's basically it. I'll see you on IRC! (YOU BETTER USE IT Razz)

Post any comments or questions here pls

Thank :0
I hope everyone else likes it too

EDIT: Y'all in good hands
Code:
<@VariableSwitch> NOW LET'S SEE WHAT OTHER THINGS I CAN TWEAK
<@VariableSwitch> !op switchbot
* EsperBot gives channel operator status to SwitchBot
<@VariableSwitch> WAIT THAT'S A VERY BAD IDEA
<@VariableSwitch> !unop Switchbot
<@VariableSwitch> Er
<@VariableSwitch> !deop
* EsperBot removes channel operator status from VariableSwitch
<VariableSwitch> WOW I'M SMART TONIGHT

Well now, this is impressive! Sorry for seeing this so late, but I'll look into playing around with it more.

By the way, does anyone think it would hurt to share this with people on the Phoenix Command Group forum? Since both sites have a lot of the same users, I'm thinking it could maybe boost activity to both sites (and to this new chat Razz).
