Post WMB IRC: General Information
As many of you may be aware, Want Midna Back has its very own Internet Relay Chat channel on irc.dynastynet.net called #wmb. Because of this, a lot of newer or future members head there for a taste of what we might be like. Not surprising; it's the easiest venture into doing so without having to join the actual forum.

The chat, however, is an entirely different thing from the forum. It holds a different air, different rules and even a different community at times. Because of that, I believe it deserves some rules and guidelines for itself. Regulars won't notice too big a change; we're usually pretty good at keeping some pseudo-rules up anyway. Usually.

I would like to add something.

In some cases where there are no OPs like last weekend, to voice anyone in the chat, go to wmbuno. It is moderated by both me and Rikimaru. It is always -m so neither I nor Riki have to be there to give you voice. To go there, type join wmbuno.

Don't go there. The problem has long been solved.

I totally forgot that I might have to mention this. Blame it on a twelve year old and a thirteen year old who enjoy watching men pull guns out of their vaginas.
-----------
New Rule

On: Anatomically Profane Material
You're absolutely not allowed.
Innuendos are fine. Mentions here and again of genitalia are a-okay. Anything directly pornographic or obscene in nature, however, is strictly disallowed. Keep up the talk and only use of the Anatomically Correct terminology for the male and female reproductive systems will be allowed, and only in the case of talking about what they do.

There will be no imagery of penises, vaginas, testicles or breasts through ASCII style text drawings. (I.E.- 8====D ; (.Y.).)

There will be no sharing of Pornographic or Erotic images, photographs or otherwise within the actual chat. One may only share them amongst other chatters when consent has been given from the person receiving the message. These transactions may only be done through private query and should be kept on the down-low from other members.

At the request of Midna's Hero:

NEW RULE

On: Text/Message-Based User Scripts
It's a Double-Edged Sword.

Side A:
The Writer and User of the script's duty-
    Your script should not be able to be easily abused by all members.
    Your script should be at least a little relevant. This means join messages are allowed, among other things that will be determined by the current users in chat.
    Your script must follow all of the other rules of the chat. I suggest putting a flood limit additive into the script. Ask Yitik how in mIRC.
    Do not post script code in chat if it is longer than three lines.
    Do not write racist or politically incorrect scripts.

Side B:
The Other Users' Duty-
    If a script is able to be abused, don't abuse it. Tell the writer it's insufficient and that they must write a new one or get off of the internet.
    Do not abuse scripts to an extent that is considered spam or flooding.
    Report all socially, politically or racially abusive scripts.

Side Rikimaru:
Rikimaru's Duty-
    Delete all of your scripts.
    Even that one, yeah.

Side Yitik:
Yitik's Privilege-
    No Script Rules Apply, because you'll find a way around them anyway.

Post Re: WMB IRC: General Information I
This was brought to my attention in chat last night, a few people thought it would be funny to spam MB's youtube script, not saying who for the sake of their reputation.

MidnaBot's Scripts are there for a reason, to make life in the chat easier, if we just spam the scripts with random crap that you could easily find yourself and share, or if you're just searching for random stuff like "wut", it spams up the logs, which isn't wanted. From now on if you youtube random stuff that isn't something you absolutely want #wmb to see (meaning a song you want to share or this funny video [and I don't mean internet meme funny] that you found on youtube.) more than 3 times it'll result in a kick and if it's spammed more than that we may kick ban you for 15 or so minutes due to excessive spamming

Also, on the note of posting links to pics, be considerate, I'm guilty of this but if it's something that will offend a multitude of people i.e. racial stereotypes, lolling at suicide, or something else of that nature, just put it aside and lol at it yourself. What you find funny may be insulting if someone asks you to stop posting those pics, stop.

Finally there are some people who are on shitty computers and shitty internet connections, we all know who, so when LB and until DaK gets a better computer, don't post picture link after picture link after picture link. Their computers will asplode and it'll take them up to 15 minutes to get back on chat. We don't want that happening so while they're there if you're sharing pics, do it at a slower pace.

If anything else is brought to my attention I'll post it here as well.

Edit: We've gone over this before guys I don't know why I have to go over it again. Besides the fact that this has been called to my attention

Scripts:

1. Only make useful scripts, it's why MB has them, she has a few for fun but most of them are there for a cause. Just because you got mIRC recently doesn't mean you have to throw in useless scripts. Most if not all of Riki's are fine, but his voicing script we'd prefer if he just set it to him voicing them not announcing their arrival.
2. Don't mimic the bot, if MB, has the script already, you don't need it, exceptions for this are voicing. Sometimes the channel ops want the channel moderated, but if MB isn't around they don't get voice unless a mod voices them. Everything else is just annoying.
3. If the script gets annoying and one of the hierarchy of the channel asks you to turn it off, don't argue, just do it. If you really want the script in there ask Yitik, DaK, me, or Riki how to make it acceptable for the chat.
4. Don't use Auto-Respond scripts, first: these are annoying and second: people can easily spam you out of the chat. Just because MB has Auto-Respond doesn't mean that it's cool for you to do it. In fact, it isn't, it's just annoying.


New rule as of November 19th, 2009:

As per the subliminal request of UNRiDDLED:

A specific user on chat has discovered a now playing script by the name of AMIP however, before you go download it and a splode the chatz with ur muzix, we need to set up some rules.
It's perfectly okay to have this script. But you must use it in moderation. AMIP has an automatic notice option. This is a no-no, it spams up the chat and people get annoyed with you and one of the mods will end up constantly kicking you, or if they are having a bad day a time-out kickban may be in store for you.

Post Re: WMB IRC: General Information I
Been 5 months since update and some new rules will be in effect after this post.

First off we have changes to the hierarchy that weren't included months past.
+q (Admins) MidnaBot has been added. No explaination necessary because she is a bot. And the only bot we'll allow.
+h (half-op) Shotaku remains h-op and new people have been added as well, Emkay and Legendboy, whenever Sho is doing his own stuff and you misbehave they will have jurisdiction over your actions provided Yitik isn't available.

Second we have some more script problems.

ABSOLUTELY NO TRIGGER-KICK. The only ones permitted to have these are +q. Something tells me that two people are immune to this rule, one being a bot.
Spam scripts are not funny. If by chance you do make a spammable script and it is reasonable to keep it. (i.e. Rikimaru's proverbs and bash.org) put a timer on it so we won't abuse it, we don't want you to be kicked because you were entertaining the chat ;)
Aliases are fine as long as they are for channel modes, moderation, rejoining or anything of the nature.

If more pop up I will be sure to place them here.

Alright, this is what should go down in the chatroom. Kcired, Shotaku, RiderlessWolf, and myself, were talking about this. The chatroom is a mess and needs to be fixed. So:

Keep swearing to a limit.
No mod-power abuse.
Abide to the rules, and listen to the chat Ops and Half-ops. All of them.
Sexual innuendo isn't the only topic in the world. Keep that down to a minimum
Spelling isn't perfect, no, but try to do your best. It's easier if people can read your text nice and easy.
If flaming/arguing goes on, about anything, both of them will be kicked. If it happens again, a temp-ban is in order.
If two half-ops fight, they should know full well to stop. Myself as well.
If you need to take something out on someone with your anger/frustration, or if you need to vent to somebody, do it outside of chat. That's what your friend's are for.
You have DaKing9, Yitik, centralservices, Shotaku, Legendboy, and Emkay as your chat moderators. Treat them with respect, like you should with every other chat member in there.

Take your heart, and use it well, and treat people who they're meant to. No more fighting, am I clear? This goes for everybody. No more 'Yiff mode', or beating down on Aquarius, nor anyone else for that matter. Hopefully you can agree with me on this, no matter how much you may hate me.
