    [​IMG] GBAtemp IRC Channel Rules & User Guide
    Read the Rules before you Chat!
    [​IMG]
    If you don't know by know, GBAtemp.net has its own IRC channel! Feel free to stop by anytime for a chat in #GBAtemp.net on Efnet. But first, I suggest you read the guide before entering. It's our duty to keep the board and the channel clean as possible, and this is just another effort to help do so.
    So, yeah, what I've done is written a short guide to using the IRC channel, as well as including a list of rules that need to be followed when chatting in the channel. So, please, read the guide and make sure to come stop by the channel sometime!

    So, I can't be banned for all the times I've broke these in the past, can I?

    And Costello + others speak in French often, are you going to ban them?

    Heh, they'll be kicked! [​IMG]
    But, really, it's not encourage. That's not one of the more strict rules and will probably occasionally be bent.
    I can't speak on the behalf of every other operator though...

    Actually the main problem with the IRC channel (and I mean only #gbatemp.net, not the other temp chans) is that the ops do not agree with what rules are actually rules. Until you all get together (and I mean ALL OF YA) and decide finally on what is what, the channel will continue to suffer.

    The chans like #ndstemp are still separate, but #gbatemp.net is considered an extension of the site, in my mind at least.

    #ndstemp and #gbatemp are the exception to everything [​IMG]


    EDIT: I just read rule #1 and I know it has been broken by one of the biggest hypocrites I have ever encountered on the internet... >_>

    This is a good idea, though spikey seriously needs to chill. Whenever he's there he goes nuts and kicks whoever posts a 4chan link, no matter what the content yet I were to upload the content to another site, it'd magically become okay.
    Thats just wrong.

    Just so everyone's aware, the rules haven't changed. Not even one bit. These are the same rules that have already been applied to the channel. The only difference is that now there's a separate page on the site for the rules. None of these rules are new.

    That said, it's funny to see all the people in here who generally break the rules all the time complaining about this as if they were new. You guys have known the rules, and don't for one minute pretend not to.

    Complaining because rules are being enforced a bit better.
