View Full Version : Chat Room Temp, possibly Perm....

06-04-2005, 04:21 AM
Hey all. For right now I have opened up a chat room for YoJoe on IRC. We are looking into a more perm chat system, but for right now this hopefully will work.

I have been pushing hard for a chat room at YoJoe, so don't let me down. We currently have two ops for the room, AnnG and myself. We won't be in there all the time so if you go in there when no Ops are present, you will take your chances on the content. If you go in there when an Op is present then the rules will be basic, but will be followed. No swearing. No Hate. No Racial negative talk. We won't stop you from most things unless an argument starts, but if anything stirs an argument or fight we will step in. Just remember that there is a small chnace kids could be in there so if there are names you don't recognize, watch yourselves.

We currently only have IRC access, Jave is not up yet.

To access the room go to the ShadowWorld server.
Or type /server in the server message box.

We are channel #YoJoe or /join #YoJoe

The room is registered so you can't Op yourself. More people will be given Op status, but don't ask for as the Web Staff will be looking into it.

That is all for now. I hope you all enjoy this. I been pushing for a chat room for a couple years now and finally have a possible ball in motion.

Ok...for us that have no idea (like me), what is IRC?

06-04-2005, 02:00 PM
IRC Is Internet Relay Chat, pretty standard stuff, you can download a client called mIRC here

Not sure what are the best ones to use as I haven't used IRC in quite some time.

Thanks Josh!

well Its my first shot at Irc and its pretty easy to figure out.. I think that this is a good thing.

06-04-2005, 09:21 PM
SWEET!!!! Now we can all get together and chat the night

I'll be in and out of the chat on a regular basis :D

Whats the deal with the 30 day free trial and then the $20 registration fee?

according to our fearless leader, Devon, he says it never makes you pay the 20 dollars. I am new to IRC and I grilled him yesterday.

Worse comes to worse, it asks for money at the end of the 30 days and we are forced to find something else.

It doesnt make you pay, i've had it installed for quite some time and it just says Your 30 day evaluation period has expired, then you can click Continue and use it normally.

06-06-2005, 11:12 PM
yeah cvc and I figured it out

06-07-2005, 12:03 PM
ive checked several times and never found anyone chatting... :(

06-07-2005, 12:07 PM
If you go during the evening there is usually someone there. We were chatting last night until around 6:45 this AM.

06-08-2005, 12:26 AM
can someone walk me through this? im not sure what im supposed to do

06-08-2005, 12:58 AM
After you have downloaded, installed and set up MIRC...
Click File, select server...make sure under 'connect' that servers is highlighted.
on the right where it says IRC server...scroll down until you see 'shadowworld' and hit OK.
Click Favorites, add to favorites. In Channel type #YoJoe and hit OK.

Click favorites again, click 'more' at the bottom. Scroll all the way down and YoJoe should be at the bottom of your list. double click on it and it should bring you to the room.

There may be an easier way...I'm new to MIRC also but this is how I got in.

Hey! Where are all you people? Get on #yojoe and start chattin!

06-10-2005, 07:49 PM
I'll hang for a few...then I gotta go to work. No inet access at the place I work at tonight! THE HORROR!!!

06-28-2005, 01:25 AM
Anybody still using it? I've checked a few times in the last couple days, & it's always empty.

06-30-2005, 07:21 PM
Yep, it is still used by the 3 or 4 regulars. Watch for an annoucemnet in the next day or two about acessing the chat room via Java. We have been working on a way for people who don't or can't use mIRC to connect. Once this is up, you all have no excuse not to come in. Lol.

Thought I would mention the Java site:
since it isn't necessarily permanant, this post could be edited or deleted.

07-21-2005, 08:45 PM
Has the site been down recently? I tried connecting last night, both to the java & the irc pages, & neither would connect. I just tried again now, same thing.

I just went in at 8 pm let me in both with java and irc

07-23-2005, 02:33 AM
I wonder if my IP is blocked. I've double checked my firewall settings, used half a dozen different browsers, & swapped nics to change mac addresses, & still can't connect to either. Has anybody been banned lately? if so, can the IP be more specific?

Oh well, I'll try again on Sunday... ;)

07-23-2005, 11:46 AM
I've been having troubles getting on as well...

My connection gets timed out.

Can't get into the Java chat tonight, either. I'm getting the message:

Unable to connect : : Operation timed out"

This happened a few nights ago, also.

It's a shame, as the Java chat is the best/easiest way to chat, IMO. And I'd think we could get some great chats on weekend nights.


07-23-2005, 09:04 PM
well i'm in the chat room right now if anyone cares to drop by

Can't access the Java chat room again, tonight.

Anyone know if this is a problem on Yojoe's end, or problem with Shadownet?


08-02-2005, 01:33 AM
Im chatting by myself right now at 1:30 Am EST, if anyone wants to come by!

08-02-2005, 09:50 PM
