K.I.O.S.C. - Important Links and General Info
« on: November 20, 2008, 04:08:05 pm »

Welcome to K.I.O.S.C. - your source for essential Gaming Guardians Community information.
Originally compiled and maintained by the moderators of the continuing Outpost Social Intro RP series.

Last Updated: April 11th, 2011

The purpose of this thread is a handy one-stop link center (not attached to a continuous thread) for all members to find info on the comics, other members, forum etiquette, IRC, and the RP setting loosely based off the main storyline. I plan on keeping this up to date, since I'm attentive to those types of things. If there's a thread/site/etc you think is missing, let me know.

CURRENT: I'm working on resetting the links built up over time, starting with the ones not dependent on the Nice. As we rebuild the administrative threads here, I'll add them to the lists. Please PM me here or on IRC as needed, as I'm trying to build up the posts needed for this thread.

Update Note 11/22/10: Added some of the new help file  links, and cleared out at least one currently dead link.  (--- Your Friendly Neighborhood Janus)
Update Note 03/17/11: Added links to the [ Play Aid ] threads, as well as some other helpful links. Also monkeyed with layout a touch. (Faye)
Update Note 04/11/11: Added link to the new "What's Your Metaplot?" thread under the "General RP Information/Threads" header. (Faye)

K.I.O.S.C. - IRC Roleplay
« Reply #1 on: November 20, 2008, 04:08:33 pm »

The Forum is not the only place for Gaming Guardians Roleplay!  The IRC (Internet Relay Chat) Community for the Guardians is active on the Sorcery.net servers, active in one way or another 24/7 for all your RP and Social needs.  We have multiple channels for Out Of Character and In-Character interactions, as well as rich opportunities for connecting with other members.

To access the IRC community, you will need a chat program that supports IRC and point it at the server address irc.sorcery.net.  Alternatively, there is a web-based client provided by Sorcery.net here if you can't get ahold of an appropriate program.  Once logged into the Sorcery.net servers, go to the channel #GamingGuardians for our main OOC channel and the default jumping-off point for Guardians IRC.

Useful commands to remember when using IRC:
  • /join [channel] - Replace the [channel] portion with any of the various channels that the community uses, or even make up a channel of your own!
  • /nick [name] - Change your displayed nickname for any reason.  Keep in mind that Sorcery.net has a nickname registration system, so be prepared to change names if someone else already has what you want.
  • /me [text] - Used for making emote and action style text.
  • !active - This command will cause our Database bot to display a quick readout of which of our main channels are being actively used.
  • !ping - A command to test your ping reaction in relation to the Database bot.
  • !help - The Database bot will PM you any remaining commands currently in use, and how to properly use them.

Sorcery.net IRC Homepage
- See what info there is on the IRC servers which have kindly given us a home.
Gaming Guardians IRC Rules of Use
- These are the hard rules used for keeping order and moderating on the IRC side of things.
Gaming Guardians IRC Logs on LiveJournal
- An excellent place to archive your roleplay on IRC for others to read later.
Gaming Guardians IRC Roleplay Etiquette
- General etiquette observed informally by the IRC roleplayers, letting you know the do's and don'ts of getting into things.

Placeholder for more info and maybe links due to post limits.

Yet another placeholder just in case. Lots of general info and links, and a 20,000 character (including spaces!) limit on posts.
