RE: Chatroom
...Does that mean it will change as soon as I become a regular member?

RE: Chatroom
I've been an IRCop and there are a few things you'd have to consider:

1. Dedicated server. You control the rooms, rules, nickserv, etc. Good in that you have control, bad in that you need a new server. There are services that can protect a room. Also, you can create private rooms that need a key to enter or only certain people can get in. For instance, forum team room, debate room, etc.

2. Established server (using freenode, EFnet, undernet, etc). You use another's server. No control over the rooms. You can use chanserv to own a channel, but that's still not 100% foolproof. A netsplit sometimes causes hiccups and you get undesirable jacknuts in your room. Good in that you don't have to maintain your own server, bad in that you have less control.

I'm not sure. I was just taking a guess. If you're concerned you could make a thread in the forum issues and suggestion section or PM a mod. That would be the most likely way to get an answer from someone who isn't just guessing. Smile

Yes, it's based on the number of posts.

Rev's got it right. That clown craze took a while to die down. Interesting times.

He would start new accounts with 0 posts and spam the shoutbox. I removed shoutbox access for newly registered users.

RE: Chatroom
Is there a limited number of characters one has to use in the shout box? Is it like twitter? I notice everyone writes short sentences.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.
