Ever notice that link in the 'Navigation' section?
Ever go there, say 'hi' and leave after 2 minutes?

Stay awhile! We don't bite (that hard) *groan* Embarassed

But wait, don't use that link, there's better ways to join the chat! Follow the guide below !!@!!@


For those who already have IRC clients, point them to irc.quakenet.org & #webcomics

bruk's guide to the fine art of idling version 2.0
----------------------------------------
Idling can be great fun; it's when you sit in a chat room and do nothing for all hours of the day.
    Why do this?
  • Because if people only stay there while they are talking, then there would be no one in the chat 99% of the time, and the other 1% of the time there would probably only be one person, asking where the heck everyone was.
  • Conversations don't need to take place in real time. I can say something to oppernaR in the chat and he may get back to me in 3 minutes.. 3 hours.. or 3 days!
  • Great for lurking!
  • You won't miss out on any of the crazy parties we have, who knows when they might happen
  • All the cool kids are doing it.
    This is what you need to do:
  1. Download This (windows only sorry!), extract it some where, run the mIRC.exe file (don't worry about it saying that it's a 30 day trial, after 30 days you will just have to click a button on a "Nag Screen" to use the software)

  2. You will see something like this..

    A - Your "real" name and "real" email address. My suggestion: put something fake for both.
    B - Nickname is your first choice for your name to display in the chat. If some one else is already using that name, then it will use Alternative
    C - When you're done with A & B, click this.

  3. Now that you've connected, sit back and stay awhile. Soon you will be enjoying the fine art of idling. Ahh.. doesn't that feel nice?

that's silly, as i know you and i have had conversations before in there Wink

So, to babble yet another clichť before i head to bed..
There's strength in numbers !
The more people who stick around, the more people there will be to talk to.

Mayhap tomorrow I'll post some details on downloading an IRC client and the fine art of idling.

Until then, g'night!

It's partially made with open source software. That's kind of like being open source.

Christ, I can't believe I never noticed that before. I guess I wasn't really looking for it- I'm not big on chat rooms. Message boards are better.
