IRC Channel Schedule

The official IRC chat time is at 8:00 PM ET on Sundays.

However the channel is open 24 hours a day, every day and we're going to try to get people to spend time in there whenever they can so hopefully they'll be people there to talk to.

#Mac-Forums Rules
  • All Mac-Forums Community Guidelines also apply in the channel. The exception will be around the profanity rule. We will allow mild profanity in the channel, but keep it under control. ;)
  • Op Status: Operator status is reserved for the mods of alone.
  • Voice: Voice status is given to those members who are active in the channel and are not only positive influences in the channel but also on DO NOT ask for voice, you will be granted voice once the mods see fit. In order to be added to the voice list you MUST register your nick with Freenode. Once you're added to the list, chanserv will auto-voice you when you enter the channel after logging in.
  • Registering is not mandatory, but it is a requirement to be on the auto-voice list with chanserv. There is no way around it, it's how Freenode's service works. However you can continue to participate without registering your nick without any problem, although we highly recommend you register.
  • Impersonating the nick of an op or another user or creating any variant thereof is grounds for immediate banning on the channel and the forums.
  • Helping another user with a problem is great, but if it becomes very indepth or you notice you're monopolizing the channel with your conversation, please take the help to a private discussion just to be polite to everyone else in the chat room.
  • The ops in the channel reserve the right to modify any of the rules as they deem appropriate at any time.

By joining the channel you are agreeing to abide by these rules.

BrianLachoreVPI 05-30-2011 08:17 PM

I downloaded linkinus. Yes - trying to join - but it just keeps giving a connection timeout error.

Edit: I might be in - maybe it didn't like my nickname. I changed it to Bryan and now it's a conspiracy!! :Angry-Tongue:

20:46 @schweb: The Mud Hens aren't a real team, what season could they lose?


He is also an enthusiastic supporter of the Toledo Mud Hens, a real-life minor-league baseball team even wearing a Mud Hens jersey and cap in several episodes.

Come on into IRC! Having a blast.

Chris H. 05-30-2011 10:57 PM

I use LimeChat for IRC chatting.

Thing is, my rep here on the forums is rather...dismal. (Started working on it).

...and I'm still figuring out LimeChat. ;D

Lot's of people last night, good to see you all. We'll still be hanging around in the channel on and off throughout the day, so stop on by!

For those of you thinking of purchasing Linkinus, I'd encourage you to compare the price difference between the App Store and the store on the Conceited (developer) website. For me at least, the MAS version is $10 and the Conceited store version works out to $27.84 (which would probably be higher given that there would be a currency exchange).
