Creatures Community Chat - everyone is welcome!

On May 31st 2010, Laura and Spook collaborated to create Creatures Chat, a PG-rated IRC channel for the Creatures Community. Laura took the initiative to register the channel, while Spook provided the hosting for a web chat applet on his personal blog.

Currently, the web chat applet is hosted by Mibbit.com.

Before using CC Chat make sure you have read our rules and WyldRyde's Terms Of Service! Especially make note of the following:

6. Trading or Sharing of Copyrighted Material:

a. You may not use WyldRyde for trading or distributing copyrighted content;
b. You may not .... use our network, to distribute, facilitate distribution, or direct link to any content that provides information on how to circumvent manufacture-installed copy-protection devices or otherwise infringes anyone else's intellectual property rights, including, but not limited to, any copyright, trademark, rights of publicity, rights of privacy, or other proprietary rights;

Channels

The main channel is #Creatures, where most chatters gather to talk about the Creatures series, reminisce, or just to have a good natter.

There is also an additional channel for Creatures roleplay: #CreaturesRP

To join, simply type /join #CreaturesRP when connected to the server (or in #Creatures). Or click the link above to join the channel via Mibbit.

There were previously other channels, #CreaturesDev for development and #CreaturesInt for international chat, but they were dropped as of July 2012 due to lack of activity.

Connecting to CC Chat

In order to make it more central, CC Chat is linked from these pages:

For those who wish to connect to the chat with their own IRC client, they can join #Creatures on the irc.wyldryde.org server.

Usernames

To register your username:

  • /nick USERNAME
  • /msg nickserv register PASSWORD EMAIL
  • /msg nickserv identify PASSWORD

To log in with your username:

  • /nick USERNAME (if your username is not correct)
  • /msg nickserv identify PASSWORD

If you use an IRC chat client it should have options to save your log in details instead of typing the commands manually.

Please note: Any nickname can receive private messages, but they need to be registered in order to respond to them.

Registered nicknames (including your password) will expire if you do not log into chat for 30 days. Sadly this is a default irc setting that we cannot change, so do come back regularly.

IRC Clients

Trillian

Once you have registered a username using the method above you can add your IRC connection into a free client such as Trillian.

  • Select 'Manage Accounts' in the Trillian menu
  • Click the "Add a new account" button and select 'IRC'
  • For the three boxes to fill in:
'Account name' can be: irc.wyldryde.org
'Nick name' is your username
'Server host' is: irc.wyldryde.org
  • If you click the 'Settings' button, and then 'Miscellaneous'
  • Where is says 'Commands (one per line)' you can paste in:
/nick myusername
/msg NickServ IDENTIFY mypassword
/join #Creatures
/join #CreaturesRP
  • Then click on the 'Back' button at the top, and 'Connect'

Each time you load your Trillian IRC account after that it will log you in and open the channel(s) you wish to visit.

CC Chat Rules

In order to make your chatting experience as enjoyable as possible, please abide by these rules while in chat. Also, please be aware that by chatting on CC Chat, you are expected to have read and abide by WyldRyde.org's Terms Of Service.

Disclaimer: We do not always know how the discussion in chat will develop. If the nature of the current topic makes you feel uncomfortable, you are welcome to leave chat and come back at a later time, or you can tell an Operator. If they agree, they will deal with the matter as soon as possible.

Violation of these rules can result in the following consequences: A warning, being devoiced (meaning that you can't send messages to the channel, until an Operator 'voices' you again) being kicked from the channel, a temporary ban and lastly, a permanent ban. This decision will be left entirely up to the Operators. If you feel you have been banned unfairly, private message Laura (or alternatively on Creatures Caves ) and she and the Operator in question will discuss it. Their decision is final.

Please Respect the Operators

Please don't question a Operator’s judgement in the public chat. Most of the time their actions are justified. If you do not agree with what an Operator has done, then please private message Laura (or the Operator involved) for clarification.

Please Adhere to the Channel Rating

Raunchy or otherwise graphic text or other content that doesn't suit the PG rating will not be allowed. This includes posting links to such content. If you're uncertain as to whether something is suitable or not, please private message one of the Operators for clarification.

No Discussion Involving Illegal Activities!

Discussions concerning illegal activities including, but not limited to, the sharing of copyrighted material, files, programs, music, movies, etc. will not be tolerated. This is against WyldRyde’s T.O.S., and the community’s consensus. If you do these activities, that’s between you and the world. Please have some common sense and don’t bring it into chat.

No Disruptive Behaviour

Any kind of name calling, derogatory statements, or disruptive behaviour is not allowed.

No Scrolling

Scrolling is when someone floods the room with several lines of pointless text.
Examples:

<@Laura> Hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii!

<@Laura> This is
<@Laura> me showing
<@Laura> you what
<@Laura> scrolling is

No Shouting

Typing in chat with the CAPS LOCK on is considered as shouting and is strongly discouraged.
Example:

<@Laura> TYPING ALL IN CAPITALS CAN BE DIFFICULT FOR OTHERS TO READ.
<@Laura> ESPECIALLY IF IT GOES ON FOR MORE THAN ONE LINE.

No Excessive Nickname Changing

When you log into chat with a name, try your best to keep it. Changing it in rapid succession, or with the intent to impersonate another chatter, whether as a joke, or just briefly, is not tolerated.
Example:

Laura is now known as Laura1
Laura1 is now known as Laura2
Laura2 is now known as Laura3
Laura3 is now known as Laura4

IRC Safety

Identity:
It's strongly recommended that you never give out your real name, age, or location while in a chat room, especially if you are underage; likewise we ask that you please respect the privacy of other members as requesting the personal details of other chatters is prohibited. IRC in general is not a safe place to discuss these things and we take your safety seriously.

Passwords:
Be advised that you should never discuss your passwords while online. People could use this against you to take over your nickname, email account, forum profile, etc.
