#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. :)

Oh, and eat fruit!

2009-04-07 [kthxby]: Is this the elfchat? Hellouuu?

2009-04-07 [kthxby]: Linderel: Don't be so uptight. We are having a good chat here.

2009-04-07 [kthxby]: In my opinion azzurra and espernet are similarly faulty with the nickserv function. Why not use the norm, ircnet.

2009-06-05 [zepher]: Maketsu: One is as bad as the other, I would say.
Cyan: Please read the page

2009-06-05 [Linderel]: At least Esper isn't as bitchy. :P

2009-06-23 [hanhepi]: maybe if the really easy link, the http://www.elftown.com/_IRC one, was up there, more people would use it?

2009-06-23 [zepher]: Good point.
Never realised it the old link was so... different.

2010-08-26 [Veltzeh]: Dang, there wasn't an exclamation mark there after all. :o

2010-08-26 [Nioniel]: Nope. ^^

2011-03-02 [zepher]: Mibbit, mibbit

2011-05-18 [Chicken Littlefinger]: This wiki is ranked funnier than Maze of Guile? Not only am I insulted and enraged, but I'm also aroused for some reason.

2011-05-30 [zmak12]: hi

2014-01-30 [Chicken Littlefinger]: Howdy there.
