Description: Information on Wavelength IRC
Get Connected

Server: irc.GameSurge.net
Channel: #Wavelength


This will be a step by step guide to connecting to the server the #wavelength channel is on, for those of you who have experience with irc you can just use the information provided above. For those of you who are unsure, or are new to IRC, read on!

1. Download an IRC client, I highly recommend mIRC as a client to connect to IRC servers. Its the easiest to use, most highly supported, and the most used windows client there is. Not to mention the fact this guide assumes you are using mIRC to connect. So with out further ado, head on over to www.mirc.com download the software (it's not big at all), and come back.

2. Install mIRC (you don't need my help for that do you?) Then fire it up. You'll be asked for some details: Name, E-mail, preferred online name, and an alternative if your preferred is taken. You can be as truthful as you like, no one will care.

3. Connect to the server. Once you have supplied all the information, select a "GameSurge" server from the "IRC servers" Drop down box, and choose which ever is closer to you. Once that is done hit the "Connect to IRC server" and wait for the client to connect to the server.

4. Once the client has connected its time to join #wavelength. This couldn't be more simple. All you have to do is in the "Status" window (or any window in the client) Type "/join #wavelength". Make sure you include the "/" or it won't be interpreted as a command.

5. Get the help you need, chat to fellow developers, and hang out!

There you go 5 simple steps to a happier, more simple life (perhaps not) but simple none the less. We look forward to seeing you soon!


Get Help

When you join the channel, please just ask your question. There is a good chance that no one will be around to awnser your question right away, so please be patient, and don't keep spamming your question. Please bare in mind you can give help as well as get help, so please if you hang out on IRC alot, stop by #wavelength on a regular basis and lend a hand to anyone that needs it. We don't just talk about game editing but general things too.


The Rules

The purpose for these rules is to make sure you get the help you need, without miscellaneous drivel getting in the way.

1. No posting of warez, porn, cracks or anything illegal.
2. No spam, flooding or advertising!! That includes asking for people to work on your mod (You wont get anyone), spamming URL's and #chan's.
3. No colors. They cause more problems than they are worth. And it just looks butt ugly.
4. Do not purposely annoy/harass the ops, we are humans too.
5. Dont Be Stupid.
6. NO BEGGING FOR: ops, peon, or to be unbanned.
7. Do Not, I repeat, DO NOT ASK TO ASK A QUESTION! You will be banned if we see it. enuf is enuf.
8. There is to be no discrimination in this channel. That includes racist and sexist comments.
9. Have Fun

Failure to follow these rules (excluding #9) will result in a kick, or a ban if you persist. Ban evasion, and begging to be unbanned if you break a rule, will earn you a permanent ban.

I dont know all these acronyms... and these rules have been here for ever, they probably need to be rewritten for clarity...

6. NO BEGGING FOR: ops, peon, or to be unbanned.

What does "peon" mean... I figured out ops...

peon means you have a + in front of your name. It doesn't give you any real power on #wavelength but it makes you stand out. So we usually reserve it for people who help allot.

irc://irc.gamesnet.net/#Wavelength

-->Er, that's irc://irc.gamesnet.net/Wavelength - IRC URL codes don't use # before the channel name.

--> Being voiced also lets you talk when the channel is under the moderated mode (+m).

It doesn't give you any real power on #wavelength since we don't use that mode.

note that the adress has changed to irc.gamesurge.net, and the guide mentions gamesnet everywhere. also note that irc.gamesurge.net is with one S

"7. Do Not, I repeat, DO NOT ASK TO ASK A QUESTION! You will be banned if we see it. enuf is enuf."

Er...does that mean that we aren't allowed to ask questions? ¬_¬
I'm scared to talk on the IRC channel just incase i somebody replies "OMFG J00 NEWB RAED TEH R00LZ J00 DUM4SS!!1111!!!!!one!!11!!!" =S

Posted By: Bulk on Oct 23 2004 at 18:22:53
No, it means dont ask to ask a question. I.e don't stroll on in and say "Can I ask a question?" Just spit it out :)
