IRC Guidelines

The Handmade Network IRC and all channels hosted on it follow the same basic set of rules as the rest of the site. You are still using Handmade Network-provided utilities and interacting with the same community, even if you are not doing so through a web browser pointed at the site. It is up to the channel and server operators to decide how to best maintain a civil and constructive chat environment, and they will act as they see fit to maintain it.

Additional notes:

  • Spamming, repetitive arguments that clog up the chat, or refusal to cooperate with a reasonable request from a moderator may result in a ban from the chat at the moderator's sole discretion.
  • Excessive join/part messages annoy some IRC users. If your internet is intermittent and you aren't actively talking in chat, consider closing your client until connection issues are resolved, or use a repeater. Full logs on public channels will be made available in the near future.
  • Abusive behavior will not be tolerated. If it is determined that a user or group of users are participating in targeted abuse (such as serial trolling/flaming and/or making serious threats), they will be banned immediately.
