Game Day Live Chatroom

Hey, Fans!

Holy crap, we're back for 2013! This thread is here to get new chatters started, to remind everyone that we're open for a game, and to provide a place for people to discuss issues.

Most participants only join for the game, but the channel is always open. Feel free to drop in anytime and start a discussion.

Below is everything you need to know to chat live with your fellow fans. See you there!

The Basics

GETTING STARTED - HOW TO JOIN IN NOW:
  1. Click Here to Log In!
  2. Enter in your nickname, then
  3. Hit Enter or click the "Go" button.

THE RULES:
  1. Keep it friendly; no personal attacks. Don't be a jerk.
  2. The channel operators decide who is being a jerk.
  3. Profanity is permitted, but rule #1 still applies.
  4. Keep the drama to a minimum. Cliff-jumping is prohibited.
  5. During gameplay, try to limit the amount of off-topic banter.
  6. Avoid pasting huge blocks of text into the chat.
  • If you are a jerk, a drama queen, or excessively disruptive, we will warn you.
  • If you continue to offend, we will kick you.
  • Finally, if necessary, we will ban you.
  • We genuinely hate having to take any of the above actions, but rest assured that they will be taken when needed.
Ignore Your Annoyances: If someone is annoying you, but they have not earned a kick or ban from an operator, you can type /ignore name to block them from your sight.

NOTE: LIVE CHAT IS NOT ON A DELAY
Spoilers abound! If you watch or listen to the game on a long-delayed feed (online, for example) you may read details about the game in the chat before you get to see or hear them. If you are on such a delay, and you do not wish to read about the game before you experience it yourself, you might want to look away from the chat while the clock is ticking, and check in during commercials, time-outs and intermissions.

A WORD TO FANS OF OTHER TEAMS
The moderators of the chat do not consider a participant to be a "troll" simply because they are not primarily a Blue Jackets fan. They will be protectedó and boundó by the same rules as anyone else. At the same time, we expect such visitors to be upstanding representatives of their own teams, refraining from hurling insults, gloating, goading, or otherwise being an irritant.

Beyond The Basics

REGISTERING YOUR HANDLE (optional):

Registering your account allows you to take ownership of your handle (nickname), so that nobody else can use it. It also allows you to be given permanent voice or operator privileges, should you earn them.

Registering is easy. Once you're connected, just type this...
/msg nickserv register password email
...replacing password with a made-up password of your choosing, and email with your email address. Then, check your email for a verification message, and click the link within.

Once you do this, you'll need to "identify" yourself to the server when you connect. If you use the link at the top of this post to connect to the chat, you just need to click the word "Auth", and enter your registered password in the field that appears before clicking "Go".


USING AN IRC CLIENT (optional):

The live chat room is actually just an IRC channel. IRC (eye-arr-sea) is short for Internet Relay Chat, and has been a popular chat method since the 80s. To use IRC, you connect to a server, and then join a "channel", which is the actual chat room.

When you join the channel using the web page at the top of this post, it loads a very basic IRC "client" which connects to the server, and puts in the #cbj channel. This allows anyone to join in without much trouble, but doesn't offer any features for power users. It also requires you to keep your web browser open to stay connected.

To get more out of your IRC experience, you can download a specialized IRC client for free. There are hundreds of them out there, but the best I've found are:
Mac: Colloquy - http://colloquy.info/
iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch - Get it on iTunes
Colloquy provides a very clean, highly customizable look and feel for IRC channels. It makes it simple to set up a connection, add a password for your registered nickname, and manage your options.
Windows: mIRC - http://www.mirc.com
mIRC is the most widely used IRC client out there. It's not the prettiest piece of software out there, but it is the most full-featured, and has become the standard-bearer for IRC chat clients across all platforms. Lots of add-ons and advice are readily available.
Linux: Konversation - http://konversation.kde.org/
Most IRC clients for Linux run on the command line, without a point-and-click interface ("irssi", for example, is an excellent text-based client). If you're looking for a Linux IRC client with nice, clean, graphical experience, here it is.
Download and install the client of your choice. Now, you'll need to create a new connection. You'll need the following information:
Server Address: irc.mibbit.net
Port Number: 6667
Channel: #cbj

You'll also need your handle, and (if you registered your handle) your identification password.
I plan to add more detailed steps and screenshots for the clients listed above, but for now, just ask for assistance in the #cbj channel if you need more help getting set up.

They may be blocking IRC, which would suck.

There's two other clients I can think of worth mentioning for both Windows and Linux - those are KVIrc (http://www.kvirc.net/), which has been fairly decent each time I've tried it, and X-Chat (http://www.xchat.org/ for Linux and shareware Windows options, http://www.silverex.org/ for a free Windows version), which is what I use. I normally reccommend against mIRC for two reasons:
1) I used to have lots of crashes with it (although that was years ago, so it's not a really good reason), and
2) I absolutely utterly cannot stand the politics mIRC's author espouses (briefly put - he's very pro-Palestine) and how he used to advertise them on the front page of the site, and so I try to actively draw support away from him and his.

I have no idea what you techies are talking about! In fact, when I entered the chat, last night, I was unable to even figure out how to participate. So, to those kind folks who welcomed me when my name showed up, thanks. I was not being snobbish by not responding, just muted by ignorance.

So what do those symbols (such as "@" or "+", etc.) next to some people's names mean? I assume they denote something very special, but what?!

It means WE'RE IN CHARGE, B***H


~ = channel founder; basically The Big Guy In Charge. Think "county commissioner."
@ = operator; one who helps fight for Truth, Justice, and the American Way and keeps the channel running; has the power to kick out and ban pretty much everybody except the founder. Think "county sheriff".
% = half-operator; has some administrative power, not able to kick around operators, but can still remove you if you're being a jerk. Think "sheriff's deputy".
+ = "voice" in moderated channel; would mean that you could speak if we had the channel set as moderated, but we don't, so around here it's... well, I dunno why macserv gives 'em out so I can't say. Think "damned if I know". (EDIT: Should point out that on some other channels I've been it's been used as something of a "We like you and think you are good for the channel" mark without any actual admin power. I suspect that's the idea here, but I don't actually know, because I've also been in channels where it's done just to freak out newcomers. )

Thanks, Mel! That's one of the many things I tried; but, by the time I got around to that, I had probably launched myself into an alternate universe by clicking on every space on the screen!

Hey, all... bumping the thread before the game, and announcing that I won't be present in the chat... carrying the flag at the Nat tonight.

I'll try to check in and make sure you guys have an operator who can change the topic.

Macserv hasn't bumped yet, so I will. If you're not at the game (and Mattthew and I in particular didn't get to make it), be at the chat. You know you want to.
