Announcement Orbiter-Forum IRC chat relocation
by Woo482 05-14-2018, 04:29 PM

As some of you may already be aware the SystemNet IRC network which has been home to our official IRC channel for the past 8 years is shutting down on June 1st. Due to this we've had to relocate where the #orbiter-forum channel is located.

Rather than re-home ourselves on a preexisting network we’ve decided to set up our own dedicated IRC server as that gives us more control over its operation (and an easy to remember host name!)

The server details are:
Server: irc.orbiter-forum.com
Port: 6667 (6697 for SSL connections)
Channel: #orbiter-forum

If you'd like to get connected quickly Loru's guide for connecting using the CIRC Chrome application still applies, just substitute "irc.orbiter-forum.com" for "irc.systemnet.info"

As with the previous channel while the O-F rules do apply they are somewhat more relaxed and can be surmised as:
  1. Multiple accounts: You are permitted to have a maximum of two accounts connect to the IRC channel.
  2. Vulgarities and obscenities are allowed, however excessive swearing is frowned upon.
  3. Graphic images/videos are permitted however you are required to define this by including "NSFW" (Not Safe For Work) prior to the link.
  4. Flooding and Spamming #Orbiter-Forum is not allowed and a swift penalty will be applied.
  5. Do not impersonate O-F/#Orbiter-Forum IRC members.

The old channel will continue to be online until SystemNet shuts down, however we look forward to you joining the new sever!

Thanks a lot for standing this server up for us Woo! Look forward to seeing you all over in the new channel (and I'll move the discord bridge over there too).
