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.
