[Rules and Info] The new "Chat" feature of the forums!
Hello all, As you can see, I was able to modify into the template the ability to chat! (See top nav bar of forums)
So that being said, I can update this with anything we need really.
So let me explain some of the options. (May update in the future so please check 1st post for changed)
- Quick Chat. This uses Gabbly chat which is basically a client side loaded chat. Its unmoderated sadly. Plus.. anyone can be "x" user. So dont always trust who they say they are...
Rules: While you are in "forums.qj.net" You are asked to please behave, keep it clean etc. Abuse of this room will only result in me removing the quick chat, which case you can find and load it yourself.. as it wont be on the forums anymore.
Should you wish to stray from topic or qj.net, simply type in the room you want to visit on the "On: (text)" field. You can make rooms for your gaming gatherings, your misc talks, etc. We wont say anything.. since how would we know where it is? Plus.. we could care less once you leave "forums.qj.net" so please keep that room clean. No screwing around.
When changing rooms, hitting "x" to close it.. please dont be in the middle of something on the html page.. you will LOSE IT! So finish your post, reading etc. Then once your done, close it out or change rooms.
- Irc Auto Load - If you have a mirc type client installed on your system. (No not trillian) You can click this which will auto load mirc, connect you to the server AND the room in one quick click! Nice eh? (If you need to know the settings, look at the url for it, the 1st part is the server, and the other part is the roomname.)
- Download Mirc - Im sure there are better "free" options, this was the 1st link in my head, so deal. =p Install this or another mirc style app and you can use the auto load link above.
Rules: That is up to the ops and other ircops of the room to explain, so behave. If your in a QJ.net sponsered room or similar to it, please follow all rules as you would here!
Remember this is all a "PRIVLEGE!" to use! If it abuse, it gets removed, simple!
Use Quick Chat to help your get togethers from the "Tournament" forums, join a seperate room. (Ex: WFC MKDS For Mario DS meetings, or Halo2 for those)
Irc is more secure and ideal from random idiots etc. So if you can, go for it.
Either way enjoy and leave comments. If you like it, it stays long as it doesnt get abused. If its hated or abused, Its a simple edit for me to remove. =)
Another reminder.. if you use quick chat and you see a user who says they are "x" and you dont trust them.. send them a forum PM to confirm. This would be helpful if you have someone acting like a Mod/admin name and they arent.. but a PM on forums would confirm this. So just dont be fooled.
As things develop or better options come out or changes, the links will be edited to reflect any new change. =)
Enjoy and Behave!
