Globe PW Chatrooms

IRC:

IRC is an entirely text based communication system so it doesn't have fancy video sharing like tinychat
The thing is nobody used the fancy video sharing and tinychat was honestly pretty awful, what with being flash based, slow and occasionally trapping people in some kind of time anomaly where they would recieve messages 15 minutes after they were sent
IRC is far more reliable, customisable and is fairly easy to use

If you come on the server please do say "Hello!" because otherwise people won't actually be informed that you've appeared and will have no idea someone has just joined unless they were staring at the tab the whole time

RULES

Joining IRC:

Follow any of these two links:
http://chat.mibbit.com/?channel=%23pictu....esper.net
(Looks fancier, tells you when someone is typing, displays links in a side window for easy image sharing, ugly emoticons)
Most problems with this link can be solved by making an account, that can disable the side window and emoticons and also be set to auto-register you when you open the window.
http://wbe02.mibbit.com/?settings=d9ec84...icturewars
(More basic, never eats links) No longer particularly reliable

OR!
Download any IRC client (Chatzilla is a good one for Firefox, there are many other standalone clients such as mIRC as well)
Connect to irc.esper.net and channel #picturewars
This has the advantage of generally offering more customisation options such as sound and fancy highlighting of words of your choice

Type /me to do hilarious emotes of your own devising
Type /nick to change your name (PLEASE USE YOUR FORUM NAME IF POSSIBLE
If you impersonate someone else we will probably be most displeased
Type /away reason to set yourself as away (the reason is optional)
Type /quit reason to quit (the reason is optional and obviously you could just close the window instead)
Type /msg name message to send someone else a private message (will open in a new tab most of the time)

Please don't insult anyone or post anything you wouldn't show to your mother

You'll generally see me online as Jacquerel which is slightly confusing (oh no how do I remember more than one name)
Currently Sanzh and Me are the only mods so tell one of us if someone does something stupid and needs kicking

!!!! type /nickserv register password email@email.com to register your name so that other people can't pretend to be you !!!!
This will send a code to your email address, find that and then type
/nickserv confirm code
to confirm that you have recieved the email
From this point on you will have to type /nickserv Identify password every time you join (it will prompt you so you can't forget) but people can't steal your name
If you get on the server (after registering) and someone else has taken your name: type in /nickserv GHOST <username> <password> to kick the user from your nickname (and the server!)

Tinychat (largely abandoned):
Spoiler :
http://tinychat.com/spritestar
This is the PW tinychat room where you can go and chat about stuff and broadcast yourself making sprites or playing games or something
There are far more moderators than we are ever going to need and there aren't really any rules apart from "don't be mean" and "must be Safe for Work at all times"
The second one is there because after some... slightly questionable video feeds we had to close our older and better named tinychat room, so unless you want us to have to make another then please try not to broadcast pornography

Seems to be most active from 10PM-2AM GMT but if a bunch of you guys start showing up that might change

Password is "carhore", but as it's just there to deter bots I'm pretty sure it just tells you when it asks anyway

Re: Spritestar- Tinychat

It was either a misspelling of hardcore or just a sort of switched around version of it.

Everyone knows complete nonsense makes the best passwords right?
Of course then it also helps if you don't post the password on public message boards
