A few months ago we set up an IRC bot to relay the chat from in-game to an IRC channel. It is a method of communicating with admins/mods/other players and players in-game without actually being connected to the Minecraft server. For those who do not know what IRC is, you can find out at wikipedia. IRC is the easiest and quickest way to talk to the admins/mods or ask a question. You can connect to IRC either from the webchat instance or with your IRC client (Recommended clients are below). irc.rozznet.net port 6667 (6697 for SSL) RozzNet is also IPv6 ready. Channel #phantomcraft You must be registered to speak in the channel. (This is to restrict spam and general derp) To register your nickname on IRC, simply execute '/msg NickServ REGISTER <password> <email-address>' in IRC and proceed to check your email (including your spam folder as the confirmation message sometimes gets caught there). Follow the verification email on how to confirm your registration. If you have problems with this, join #help. Every you join IRC, you will need to identify with NickServ so you can talk in #phantomcraft. To do this, you can either check the "log in to services" box in the webchat instance before you connect or type '/msg NickServ IDENTIFY <password>' in IRC. If you have forgotten your password, we can't help you. You will need to join #help or contact network staff. IRC is not for ban appeals or getting mad because you were banned on the server. Ban appeals belong on the forums. We can easily check who you are on the server regardless of your nickname. Note: If you act like a fool (no need to elaborate on this), you will probably be quieted and/or get banned from the channel. Basically use common sense. Some useful resources for IRC newcomers are: http://www.rozznet.net/doc/annoyance.txt http://www.irchelp.org/irchelp/irctutorial.html A few of the basic IRC commands are as follows: /join <#channel> - Join the specified channel. /part <#channel> - Leave the specified channel. /nick <newname> - Change your name or 'nick' to something else. /msg <nick> <message> - Send a private message to another user. /me <action> - Act out the specified message. (same as /me in-game) /notice <nick/channel> <message> - Send a notice to the specified user or channel. /topic - Get the topic of the current channel. Do note these are NOT in-game commands and will not work if you try them in-game. Users with an exclamation mark (!) in front of their name are channel administrators (sysadmins in-game). The at symbol (@) signifies channel operator; usually IRC network service bots or in-game administrators. A percent symbol (%) signifies channel half-op which is recognised as moderator or sub-admin in-game. Users with voice (+) have no related authority and have none in IRC. If you would like to use a real IRC client, the following are recommended: Windows - XChat-WDK (Now called HexChat) Mac OSX - Colloquy Linux - irssi The IRC relay bot supports a number of commands of which can be listed by saying '@help' in the channel. Many of these are primarily for admins/mods and you won't be able to use them. The IRC network (RozzNet IRC) is independent of PhantomCraft. We are not responsible if you are network banned from RozzNet for any reason and will not get involved or ask for the network ban to be removed. If you need help with IRC in general or a services account issue, please join #help or go to www.rozznet.net for assistance.
