#elftown @ irc.esper.net


Welcome everybody!


What is Elfchat?
Elfchat is a place for Elftowners to have a chat. This here Elfchat wikipage is just an information page.
If you want to chat on a wikipage right now, head to Now.

How do I get there?
Well, there are two options.
You can use the Java applet at <URL:http://www.elftown.com/_IRC> to connect to the chat channel, or you can use the Mibbit IRC widget.
Or, you can install a IRC client yourself. See Elfchat Technical Information.

What do I do there?
You can say hello, ask people to comment on your art and talk about the weather in Popolopia and [Isilando]'s beard.

It seems awfully quiet.
Elfchatters are from all over the world. It could be that some of the people in the room are sleeping at the moment, or just busy. Sometimes you get a reply within minutes, and sometimes everybody sleeps for half a day.
Think of Elfchat as faster than a forum and slower than MSN.

So that's it?
Yep, pretty much. But please keep reading for more details.

How to get to Elfchat


The easy way:
1) Read the rest of the pages and come back later, it will help you.
2) Click here: <URL:http://www.elftown.com/_IRC> (or here: Mibbit IRC widget). This will run a java applet. Click "run" if it asks what to do.
3) Change your nickname. You can do so in the lower right box.
4) Say something nice and wait or go do something else until you get a reply.

The better way:
1) Get an IRC client.
2) Connect to irc.esper.net.
3) Join #Elftown.
These steps are detailed in Elfchat Technical Information.

Remember behaviour


* Don't be an asshole.
* Use your best English.
* Be patient.

Assholes usually flood the channel (typing nonsense in order to make it more difficult for the rest to communicate), keep repeating things, tire others with private messages about their personal websites, write with irritating colours in order again to make communicating difficult, beg for ops etc.
People who act this way will be banned from the channel until they decide to behave.

You should not come to show off how much you can abuse the English language or insulting people. We recommend that you leave the abbreviations and bad grammar to the ones who wish to solve riddles; we want to talk, not to decrypt your messages. We won't lynch you if English is not your mother tongue or you have problems with spelling, but you should at least try to write understandably. It is OK, we all make typos. It's just that you just shouldn't be typing with your butt.

Speaking of typos, some of us are spelling nazis. Do not feel attacked or offended when someone corrects your little (or big) errors. It happens often, you should only learn from it. :)

2004-01-25 [Amerthyst]: o.O Its quite a bit to ask people to download a chat program, install it, without knowing the risks, amongst other things, some people i've met havent a clue how to use mirc, some do. why not add a java chat? or does the server allow it?

2004-01-25 [Nita]: It's strange and slow... And it's in Italian! ;) http://elftown.lysator.liu.se/wiki_azzurra

2004-01-25 [Nita]: I managed to switch it to English, but I'm still not satisfied... :/

2004-01-26 [~The Dragon Master~]: How do you translate it???

2004-01-27 [Nita]: Translate what?

2004-01-27 [kthxby]: Amerthyst: Life works that way. If you aren´t willing to learn, you´ll miss a lot of things. And the problem with the javachat is that you can´t ban one misbehaving person without banning the whole javachat.

2004-01-27 [kthxby]: IRC is 15 years old "invention" and it has been proven working. Which client you use is up to you though. Mirc is probably one of the easiest to learn.

2004-01-27 [alinePhoenix]: hey..

The only reason the comments are shown in this wiki is for people who might have a question but they don't know how to use the forums.

In addition to stupid "This-chat-sucks" comments, the "Hello", "hi!", "what's up?!", " ^_^ " comments will also be deleteded from here and now on. The only reason the comments are shown in this wiki is for people who might have a question but they don't know how to use the forums.

2004-02-10 [vincentdarkheart]: <---------is new and haas a question)

2004-02-10 [vincentdarkheart]: is role playing alowed

2004-02-11 [hippythingz]: hi all

2004-02-11 [Isilando]: If you want to role play, why do it here and not go to one of the hundrents of other wikis which are made for Role Playing. Wouldn't it be better for both you and us?

2004-02-11 [Isilando]: There are special wikis for role playing. Here you'd just find no responce (and deleted comments). Go to the main wiki page and navigate through there to find role playing wikis ;)

2004-02-17 [Asalli_Angel]: i'm new

2004-02-17 [Isilando]: [rajwanshi]: the instructions are so detailed that even an orc would manage it , [Asalli_Angel] : the mIRC has nothing to do with the way Elftown site works so you're asking for help in the wrong place

2004-02-18 [Battered puppy]: how will i know if someone awnsers this?

2004-02-18 [Nita]: This is the wrong place to ask such questions. Please, go to the Newbie questions forum -> <URL:view_forum.html?forumnr=1>

2004-02-18 [Maple Grove_Karma20]: Hello

2004-02-21 [STARCUTTIE]: how do you get on the elftown chat from your homepage?

2004-02-21 [Nita]: You need an IRC client.

2004-02-22 [SleepingDragon]: Um just a suggestion but why doesn't someone make a java page for the chat client to open in so people don't have to go through all that downloading and settup of software just to chat?

2004-02-22 [Nita]: Well, if you're that suicidal... ;) <URL:wiki_azzurra>

2004-02-23 [jobby]: We be fallin up, Never fallin down, We keep it at a higher level elevating now, in your area, town, Blackeyed Peas is gettin down

2004-03-11 [Antz]: I'm new here, so i won't be up to much until i learn to find my way around

2004-03-11 [Antz]: how instant is this chat?

2004-03-11 [farie of the dead]: i agree with Antz

2004-03-12 [Antz]: cheers

2004-03-13 [Deleted user]: hi, up the irons!

2004-03-13 [Isilando]: [Antz] : It's as instant as downloading, installing and connecting through a program. There is also a java applet which is supposed to work but it doesn't, this is why we didn't write it somewhere in the wiki. I will add it though with the comment "Don't expect it to work" ... It is generally more preferable to download and use IRC as it's more reliable.

2004-03-14 [tashalynn83]: sup ppl

2004-04-01 [cherriefarie16]: does anyone in here know how to chat with everyone on this site

2004-04-01 [cherriefarie16]: cause im havin trouble finding it

2004-04-02 [Chincilla]: I don't think so, but are there any dutch people, if I am!?

2004-04-02 [Isilando]: You cannot chat on this site. You just follow the instructions written there to chat with other elftowners.

2004-04-02 [DarkWarder]: Have no idea how to chat

2004-04-03 [Isilando]: Read the instructions

2004-04-03 [Xiomara Mejia]: Dark Warder. If you don't know how to chat, you can't read.

2004-04-04 [Isilando]: [Xiomara Mejia] is younger than most people who try to find their way through the labyrinth of this page and yet she did better than everyone else... [Xiomara Mejia] do you want to marry me? :P

2004-04-05 [Gabriela of Darkwood]: Where the hey do I go to chat without paying??? yea, cause somewhere it said that the old one is charging...And I want to chat....yea....okay....get back to me...

2004-04-05 [Isilando]: No version of IRC requires that you pay. Unless the evaluation period of 30 days is over. Try getting some other clients in www.mirc-x.com . Don't(!!!!!!) try to join the #ElfChat channel with an aggresive irc client designed only to create problems. You'll be banned.

2004-04-07 [Muffin Man]: is this like msn?

2004-04-07 [Nita]: No, it's like IRC :)

2004-04-07 [gaither babe]: idk what to do here i tried following the directions butit didnt work

2004-04-07 [Isilando]: Try explaining a bit better where exactly do you encounter a problem.

2004-04-09 [Celine]: hello?

2004-04-09 [Celine]: I was wondering if this is a rp room?

2004-04-09 [Forestchild]: uh..no

2004-04-09 [Celine]: great! cause I hate those rooms

2004-04-09 [Celine]: no one talks they just pretend to be fighting make believe monsters

2004-04-10 [Isilando]: This is not a room at all. It is just the instruction on how to char with other people on IRC and not on this wiki. The comments are only for questions if you have any problems in the whole proceedure described above.

2004-04-11 [anonymous182]: good morning everyone

2004-04-13 [teladobix]: It says that my e-mail is not valid~_~

2004-04-13 [Isilando]: Hm. This seems to be a common problem and I don't see why... Are you sure you didn't switch places the password with the e-mail? e-mail comes after the password. If this doesn't work message me to help you more.

2004-04-13 [Snoefty]: hey

2004-04-19 [Tamaki-Senpai]: @_@ Confusion... You knew I was stupid didn't you!!!
