    #CurlyBrace: An IRC Solution!

    In case you IRC users haven't noticed, it seems as if every day there is a large fight/battle/flamewar on #doukutsu, and the admins never seemed to do anything about it.
    A few users and I, who just wanted to have a normal chatroom, decided a new, moderated channel would prevent this from occurring.
    So that's what we did.
    I present #CurlyBrace, the flamewar-free chatroom!
    http://www.esper.net/publicirc.php Just type #CurlyBrace (not case sensitive) into the text box to join.

    A rule:

    Don't be a dick unless we like you.

    Seriously this shouldn't be mega hard to follow, and it shouldn't be too hard to uphold. Just don't piss everyone off and it's chill.


    Current Ops:
    •Cultr1 - Founder
    •GIR - Also Successor (Super Op)
    •Noxid - Super Op

    What was wrong with the other channel? I dont go there as often as i should but it doesnt get that out of hand right? You know people will just end up either going to just the #doukutsu one or both.

    Also, Registering and constantly relogging in your username is fucking annoying on IRC.

    It really does get that out of hand.
    They will have flame wars for up to 3 hours straight.
    Any and all other conversations will be lost in the swirling torrent of fire.

    No really log on to #doukutsu tomorrow night and see for yourself.

    Mibbit is useful, especially since you don't need to download anything. It's pretty easy to use, to.

    So you want a boring channel. I see. The cool kids will stay in #doukutsu, thanks.

    Re: #CurlyBrace: An IRC Solution!

    I don't want a boring channel, I want a channel where i can actually have a goddamn conversation with the people I joined IRC to talk to, as opposed to listening to you bitch about how you don't like things on the forum.
    We get enough of that from you in the satellite lounge.

    And by "cool kids" you mean you, Schoko, and Fire?
    You're right, I'd never be "cool" enough to stay on #doukutsu. Same with GIR, Noxid, DoubleThink, Jackalope, Carrotlord, Metruler, and IamSerge. We're totally uncool.
    Shoot.
    Maybe, one day, if try really hard, I could be "cool" like you guys.
    Man, I am totally looking forward to the day i start spending all night yelling at Administrators because we don't like things on a public forum that no one else really objects to, and they won't change it so I can be happy.

    Well.
    You don't see your fail.

    The official channel is dead.
    How do you think you will get people to join yours?
    Besides that:
    Noxid is in #doukutsu just like everyone else.

    FYI, I am there too, but I'm on #curlyBrace also.
    Whoa
    :o

    And the channel was doing fairly well until people started having pointless arguments every night.

    Re: #CurlyBrace: An IRC Solution!

    They're not pointless arguments, they just don't concern you. By the way, thanks for going ahead and making a new chatroom without saying "Hey guys, maybe shut up because it's not important." Good problem-solving skills.
    I guess there's no harm in hanging out in your pussified channel. It's twice the conversations, right? Just try not to be a shitty operator like on every other channel I've ever hung out on.

    Rules amended on account of CF's whining.

    Now, blatant trolling will not be given a warning before kick/mute.
    Banning however, requires a warning.

    Maybe that's because it had the misfortune of you being an operator and Super_Sonic being there.

    Re: #CurlyBrace: An IRC Solution!

    This is a terrible idea. I don't know maybe it's my lithuanian blood, or the soviet union's fault, but I haven't seen anything hostile in #doukutsu. And by that I mean nothing serious, the trolling there is usually friendly. At least that's how I see it. Excuse me for not getting butthurt each time. I guess in real life it's easier to spot sarcasm and joking around, as opposed to mimickless and motionless internet.

    But still, hasn't history shown that splitting shit up never turned out nicely? I mean just look at Yugoslavia. So instead of having 1 not so active irc room, we'll have two empty ones...Great plan. Plus it may even split the forums into groups, and one of the groups (CptFab/Fire, whatever) might get banned. We don't want that to happen now do we.

    But yeah I agree sometimes it does get out of hand when you're talking to either GIR/Noxid about offsets and Captain Fab runs in and ruins it >=[
