#elftown @ irc.esper.net


Welcome everybody!


What is Elfchat?
Elfchat is a place for Elftowners to have a chat. This here Elfchat wikipage is just an information page.
If you want to chat on a wikipage right now, head to Now.

How do I get there?
Well, there are two options.
You can use the Java applet at <URL:http://www.elftown.com/_IRC> to connect to the chat channel, or you can use the Mibbit IRC widget.
Or, you can install a IRC client yourself. See Elfchat Technical Information.

What do I do there?
You can say hello, ask people to comment on your art and talk about the weather in Popolopia and [Isilando]'s beard.

It seems awfully quiet.
Elfchatters are from all over the world. It could be that some of the people in the room are sleeping at the moment, or just busy. Sometimes you get a reply within minutes, and sometimes everybody sleeps for half a day.
Think of Elfchat as faster than a forum and slower than MSN.

So that's it?
Yep, pretty much. But please keep reading for more details.

How to get to Elfchat


The easy way:
1) Read the rest of the pages and come back later, it will help you.
2) Click here: <URL:http://www.elftown.com/_IRC> (or here: Mibbit IRC widget). This will run a java applet. Click "run" if it asks what to do.
3) Change your nickname. You can do so in the lower right box.
4) Say something nice and wait or go do something else until you get a reply.

The better way:
1) Get an IRC client.
2) Connect to irc.esper.net.
3) Join #Elftown.
These steps are detailed in Elfchat Technical Information.

Remember behaviour


* Don't be an asshole.
* Use your best English.
* Be patient.

Assholes usually flood the channel (typing nonsense in order to make it more difficult for the rest to communicate), keep repeating things, tire others with private messages about their personal websites, write with irritating colours in order again to make communicating difficult, beg for ops etc.
People who act this way will be banned from the channel until they decide to behave.

You should not come to show off how much you can abuse the English language or insulting people. We recommend that you leave the abbreviations and bad grammar to the ones who wish to solve riddles; we want to talk, not to decrypt your messages. We won't lynch you if English is not your mother tongue or you have problems with spelling, but you should at least try to write understandably. It is OK, we all make typos. It's just that you just shouldn't be typing with your butt.

Speaking of typos, some of us are spelling nazis. Do not feel attacked or offended when someone corrects your little (or big) errors. It happens often, you should only learn from it. :)

2004-05-20 [Isilando]: In the Instructions Page about how to get to ElfChat

2004-05-22 [DevilChik23]: ok and this was simple how?

2004-05-25 [Caged Singer]: ....Yea.. this was imple how?

2004-05-26 [Naraki]: isnt posting a host mask in a open forum a breach of privacy? even when harressed and irc is known for its errm friendly users ... still posting a host mask seems rather stupid since it could be the home internet gateway or a comp used by other people who then would get a server ban to?

2004-05-26 [Carolina_AC3]: Hi, I'm new here and I would like to make some friends, so if you could send a message to me that would be awesome.

2004-05-26 [Nita]: Privacy? On the Internet? And IRC servers don't give out full IPs anyway ;)

2004-05-29 [Somerandomspot]: Ok so how do u get in chat

2004-05-29 [Shreya]: Read the instructions.

2004-05-30 [Sony Bologna 15]: have no ide

2004-05-31 [corey00]: aww it is

2004-06-02 [canada_rokz982]: hey, i'm new... um is this chat or a message board ... hehe :S

2004-06-02 [canada_rokz982]: i'd like to make some new friends... it'd be great if someone would send me a message!

2004-06-02 [Isilando]: This is neither the chat, nor a message board. Just scroll your browser waaaaay up and try to stare at the screen for one or two seconds. I hope you'll notice something important.

2004-06-03 [fat daddy]: i like eggs

2004-06-03 [Moonaunie]: hey

2004-06-03 [Moonaunie]: no idea

2004-06-03 [Moonaunie]: So what is this if it's nor chat nor msg. board?

2004-06-03 [Shreya]: This is the wiki that explains how to get to the chat

2004-06-05 [pricklybutt]: ok, good...I've hit the chat serrver and nothing but a blue page pops up...now tell me what I need to do

2004-06-05 [Noel Turnner]: Carolina_AC3 Hi Ill be your friend. I am new here too

2004-06-05 [Dwarfling]: connected to the server but got disc`ed :(

2004-06-05 [Isilando]: [pricklybutt] read the instructions carefully.

2004-06-05 [XdeAdbaByAngelX]: hello i was just curious as to how i could become a boss

2004-06-05 [Sony Bologna 15]: any one want to chat?

2004-06-06 [Kale(Roland)]: if i wanted to get a story on here how would i do it? cuz i just started this thing and i dont know how to do nuthin

2004-06-06 [Davorah]: To Angel: You can't. To Sonya: You don't chat here, you go to the IRC server. (The link is up on the page, Look for it) To Kale: You don't put your story in this particular wiki. You can make your own wiki for it. Message me if you want me to teach you how to do it.

2004-06-07 [Isilando]: [XdeAdbaByAngelX] Generally in ElfTown, "boss" people are chosen, they do not apply anywhere. [Kale(Roland)] go to the Index page and look for help pages over there.

2004-06-07 [Davorah]: =^.^=

2004-06-07 [Harpy]: Am I supposed to write something?

2004-06-07 [Harpy]: Tooo bad there is no latvian

2004-06-07 [Isilando]: You should know English :)

2004-06-07 [.Sweet . cheeks.]: heh?

2004-06-10 [Mindfreak]: hello everybody

2004-06-11 [lil_wiccan_chick]: hello

2004-06-11 [mort prevoyant]: all i was able to do is type in "/server irc.us.azzurra.org" (w/o the quotations) then it connected and said sum stuff, but then when i typed in "/nickserv set lang 2" it didnt show up on the screen, neither did anything else i tried to type in. then it said "[10054 (Unknown or private posting)]connection reset by peer", and i got disconnected.

2004-06-11 [Isilando]: Sometimes this happens. Your connectiong being reset but peer or by the server or by some of your software. Just try to reconnect. If it fails constantly then it means there is a problem :)

2004-06-12 [mort prevoyant]: i cant get it to do anything past typing in the server, then it tells me i'm connected and anything else I try to type in after that doesn't show up, and after about a minute it says connection reset by peer and disconnects me, i tried 4 times

2004-06-13 [sparkle_98]: This website needs to be a little more organized for newcomers so they can find things more easily.

2004-06-13 [sparkle_98]: How do you change your house? I put halgings (whatever it is) and it put me as a orc. I don't want to be a orc! Help!!

2004-06-13 [Shreya]: a) That is not an Elfchat question:) b) You can change your description again, just click on the Change Personal Data button (on the top of the page, towards the right) and make your changes there.

2004-06-15 [pixiechick]: hello!! I think I did everything but am having problems figuring out what I am supposed to email Isilando, It said welcome pixiechick and blah blah, but am trying to follow the other directions, like setting the lang 2 etc and getting password etc. but it seems to have skipped a bunch and won't let me go through the steps, help!!

2004-06-15 [lisi2287]: Hey how do you put your picture on here??

2004-06-18 [une histoire d'amour]: um... help!

2004-06-18 [une histoire d'amour]: wow.. not alot of ppl talk here do they?

2004-06-18 [pixish]: that is because this isnt the chat

2004-06-19 [black dragon19]: hey slayers here hide ur dragons if u can haha

2004-06-21 [pirann]: hey how do u get to the chat room

2004-06-21 [pirann]: hello

2004-06-21 [True, plain and simple]: Read the instructions?

2004-06-22 [Ilfirin]: :( few people on (4) and they dont answer :(

2004-06-22 [Davorah]: Ilfirin: not many people use it, and you have to give people time, we're not all from the same timezone you know...

2004-06-23 [Sony Bologna 15]: any one want to chat?

2004-06-23 [teptep]: we are gaia.

2004-06-27 [Tári Nénharma]: someone should write instructions for using Gaim, Trillian, and other multi-messager communicators for Elfchat. If what I did actually worked, I'll post it.

2004-06-28 [AngelFlame]: I can't connect to the server arrrggghhh

2004-06-28 [Isilando]: Are you using a firewall program? Are you tryig to connect to the right server?

2004-06-29 [pixish]: I reccommend to doubly check that it's connecting to the right serever for your area...I tried to connect for days before I realised that is what I was doing wrong

2004-06-30 [mort prevoyant]: i cant get it to do anything past typing in the server, then it tells me i'm connected and anything else I try to type in after that doesn't show up, and after about a minute it says connection reset by peer and disconnects me, i tried 4 times

2004-07-01 [schmerdolf]: hi

2004-07-13 [kthxby]: Hello people? ^_^

2004-07-13 [Shreya]: Hm this page needs to be split up into smaller sections.

2004-07-15 [Paul Doyle]: Wow, I've been getting disconnected like crazy lately. Is there a compatibility problem?

2004-07-15 [True, plain and simple]: Only with you, apparently..What has changed since the last time you've connected? You keep getting a ping timeout.

2004-07-15 [Paul Doyle]: I changed antivirus programs, temporarily, but I haven't really changed anything else, other than downloading the latest Windows XP patches, and stuff. I am currently trying to re-connect again.

2004-07-15 [True, plain and simple]: Nortons = The Devil. Those new patches = The Devil too. But eh, they shouldn't be effecting it, since you've connected since switching to the Beta 2005 right?

2004-07-15 [Paul Doyle]: Well, i downloaded the 2005 Beta, then it crashed, so i had to re-download the beta. For some reason I cannot completely remove the old Norton stuff, so I have to remove it MANUALLY, little by little. The AVG 6.0 antivirus started acting weirdly, too, so I uninstalled it, then tried to re-download it. Failure. So I've been forced to go with the AOL McAfee until I switch over to Yahoo DSL July 20th >___<

2004-07-15 [True, plain and simple]: Oh dear god. o_o No wonder you can't connect. No one can save you now Paul! -runs-

2004-07-15 [Paul Doyle]: Yep, I'm an ET leper and my fingers all falling off like icicles in a Spring thaw :P

2004-07-15 [teptep]: O.O...I am just scared.

2004-07-15 [Paul Doyle]: oopsie, my ear just fell off

2004-07-15 [Dragon Flame]: i will smash all

2004-07-16 [Sony Bologna]: hgs chat with me

2004-07-17 [Ittai]: Yes the latest nortons are truly evil, getting into your lives, taking over your trash bins, bipping and barking and shouting at every single action I'm trying to do! and the speed! the speed! It's slowing my computer like a maniak... Ahhh!!

2004-07-17 [5cm/s]: i hav a question, how do u create a wiki (hope this message gets awnsered:) just message my user name linkin_park if u know)

2004-07-17 [Land_of_Linden]: I'm new does some one want to talk

2004-07-19 [deleted97]: hmmmm...so what do u do on here (ignores instructions above)

2004-07-19 [Isilando]: Read the page first and then ask questions.

2004-07-22 [fallen_flutterby]: hello, can i chat?

2004-07-22 [fallen_flutterby]: i wonder what time it is in australlia?

2004-07-23 [Ukia]: Hello. I'm new here. Is anybody on?

2004-07-23 [Ukia]: Really. Is there anybody that wants to chat?

2004-07-23 [Koros-baka]: my friend, are you in here or am i lost again?

2004-07-23 [Koros-baka]: This IS the chat room, right? Noel, ya know it's the Reeces freak.

2004-07-23 [Koros-baka]: answer me, Noel

2004-07-23 [Koros-baka]: hopefully you will be here soon

2004-07-23 [Koros-baka]: i suck at this.

2004-07-23 [teptep]: koros this is not the elfchat go to the top of this page and click on the link, thats the elfchat.

2004-07-23 [Koros-baka]: i have to get off soon. if you show up, that is what happened to me. Just so you know.

2004-07-23 [Koros-baka]: uhhhh..... elfchat won't let me on. my computer is evil. it says, "this pg cannot be displayed"

2004-07-23 [teptep]: uh koros this is not the chat leave that stuff to the actual chat room, go to the top of the page and click on the link look for this <URL:wiki_azzurra> nevermind just click on that.

2004-07-23 [Koros-baka]: sorry. i've tried that. it gives me a blue box and then nothing happens at all. i tried this earlier.

2004-07-23 [Koros-baka]: have to get off now. oh well. ja ne.

2004-07-23 [Isilando]: the java chat is problematic and it's up to how messed up your browser is whether it'll work. So you better follow the whoe instructions on the page so that you enter the chat for sure ;)

2004-07-24 [mort prevoyant]: i went to <URL:wiki_azzurra> n it worked n everything, but once its on and stuff, what do i do?

2004-07-25 [teptep]: type little words and see if someone types back :D

2004-07-26 [Avaz]: Or, challenge your mind and try typing big words! XD

2004-07-26 [teptep]: indeed

2004-07-27 [Brandy88221]: HEY PPL

2004-07-27 [Avaz]: See right there? This is an example of the exact polar opposite of what I just said *groans* x_x It violates two laws, the CAPS=YELLING law and the not-typing-out-a-whole-word law. The latter one, for convenience's sake, has been renamed the AOLaw. ;)

2004-07-28 [i like to run into walls]: ACHOO!!!

2004-07-28 [i like to run into walls]: *runs into a wall* MWAAAAHAHAHA!!!

2004-07-28 [Lord Sky_Elf]: hmmm for some reason, i cannot log into the chat... oh well.....
