[SITE FEATURE] Zeta Team Chatroom

Post #44750 by Miles » April 8th, 2016, 1:05 am

Hello!
So, after feedback from our users and administrators I have migrated the chat to Discord.
Discord is a web based chat client with Desktop and Mobile support with voice and channel support as well.

Click on the following link to Join it:
http://chat.thezetateam.org
This will join you as a temporary member (you need to register an account on Discord to join, this is to prevent spammers), an administrator will verify you against your forum account (please set your nickname in the user control panel https://forum.thezetateam.org/ucp.php so we can verify that you are a member). This will prevent you being automatically kicked when you leave.

If you want more information about Discord check it out here: https://discordapp.com/

Staff remain the same, please see below.
See in the Spoilers for the original announcement about IRC, we are still working with Sornanet administration for technical assistance.

Footnote: For those of you that like the IRC, there is a "Gateway Bot" that sits in the Discord and relays messages back and forth. It's a bit clunky, and not perfect, but you won't be left out of discussions in the Lobby. Sornaensis and other opers are working on a better relay/link but it may take some time. I do still recommend joining the Discord Directly.
It does still sit on top of IRC, it just has a more graphical client, and a more reliable mobile client. It's easier to connect to, and allows for the easy sharing of rich media.
Fingers crossed we get this chat community up and running the way we always wanted it to!

Good Evening All!
At the request of Our Lady Zeta I have embedded a live-chat client at https://thezetateam.org/chat/
It's based on KiwiIRC and is on the Sornaensis IRC network.

Zeta plans to use it to keep in touch with people a bit better and chat about the project.
She's not online just now, she's at work, but she'll be trying it out later and should be floating about on there in the near future.

When you open the page it asks you to select a nickname, and then you hit "start"
If you have a registered nickname on irc.sornaensis.com use that and tick "use password" and sign in with your NickServ password

For those of you who already use IRC the connection details are below

Code: Select all

Network : irc.sornaensis.com
Port    : 6609 (SSL)
Channel : #TheZetaTeam

If you can't use SSL, the port is 6667, but SSL is highly preferred

This is still highly experimental and I'll work on ironing out a few things here and there, but here's to a thriving community and constructive chatter!

Update! You can now add your IRC Nickname to your profile on here so people know who you are! Make sure you've registered your nickname on the chat before you fill this in though.
For information on how to do this, a guide is here http://www.deepspace.org/nickserv.htm

Well this will most likely get used and abused by people impersonating others just to get them in trouble ...

I'm working on better integration, but right now the forum and the chat will be treated as two separate entities.
A ban on one doesn't equal a ban on the other.

But still doesn't stop people thinking someone said something and cause problems...

I'm an ircop on the network in question. I have a pretty unique power to combat impersonators.
I put this in place because zeta asked for it, I'll iron out the problems as they come up.

I understand your concern, I'll be doing a bit of a better integration tomorrow. In the meantime, if you join the chat and register your nick, nobody can use it apart from you

The IRC is dead because everyone just goes there waiting for the crew members to arrive. Like they are the only reasons to go to IRC. Please, people. Liven the place up a little. I've idled there since the channel started so far.

Lasty time I saw a chat like that it was the Fenoxo chat. Which Excellia's player Blackheart used it as a platform to promote themself, their characters, and demonize people they didn't like to the point the entire forum turned against them...Still didn't stop Fenoxo from putting them in the game sadly...
