If you're gonna have a community, then you're gonna get a chat room sooner or later. It's like this unwritten law of web communities, and hey, that's fine by me!

After the comic launched, I set up an IRC channel for fans of Ragnarok Wisdom and the cast members as well as friends of the cast members and friends of their friends, and friends of their friends of the people who starred on Friends.

... er, wait.

AHEM.

So, here's a listing of the channel rules so people won't be so surprised when I go "RAR >(." A lot of people go :( and I go >( and they say "I didn't know" and I say "Oh :(" and then I feel dumb.

Now that all changes! Here's a page for the rules.

Ragnarok Wisdom has an official community channel on an IRC (Internet Relay Chat) server, EsperNet. To get there, you have to use an IRC client.

If you already have an IRC client and know how to use it, just head on over to #ragnarokwisdom once you connect to irc.esper.net. If you'd like to hang out with us, but don't have an IRC client, you can use EsperNet's online client or follow the directions here.

Okay, so first off, what are the rules?
The rules I have in #ragnarokwisdom are similar to those found in the Ragnarok Wisdom forums. Here's the list:

* Don't be a jerk.
* Don't make prejudiced remarks.
* No porn or hentai to be posted to the channel.
* No public discussion or practice of illegal trades (Software piracy, RO private servers, e.t.c)

* If something someone says is offensive to you, tell the person in a private message or go to an op about it.


If you think something may be against the rules but you're not sure, PM me on it and ask me.

Why do you have these rules?
A brief explanation for each:

Don't be a jerk:
I think that's obvious. I don't tolerate people who act nasty to everyone else, or gets off on tormenting the rest of the channel goers.

Don't make prejudiced remarks:
In this instance I'm talking about hateful remarks based on someone's ethnicity, religion, nationality, or sexual preference, or other similar lines of grouping. If you make racial slurs or similar hateful remarks, I will warn/kick/ban you. If you make hateful remarks about the people of a certain nation or religion, I will do the same.

No porn or hentai:
None of that in the channel. Keep it to PMs if you want to talk with someone about it.

No illegal discussion or practice of illegal trades:
Like I said on the forums rules post, I don't care if you do it or not, but don't bring it here. As of the writing of these rules, esper.net's people are watching Ragnarok Online-related channels very carefully. One slip up and a channel could be closed down and its people k-lined. Therefore I won't tolerate any illegal discussion: private servers, warez, crackz, codez, whatever. Don't even mention it.

By the way, MP3 scripts are okay, generally. The program itself is not against the rules, after all.

What will you do if I break the rules?
We have a system in place that acts as a guideline for punishment.

If we catch you breaking the rules, your punishment depends on the severity of the breach.

There's several categories we go by:

Misunderstanding of the rules:
Warnings are only given as a response. However, if you don't listen, you will get kicked, and you will get banned if you constantly defy the rules.

Indirect violation:
Warnings are only given as a response. However, if you don't listen, you will get kicked, and you will get banned if you constantly defy the rules.

Direct violation:
Warnings are only given as a response. However, if you don't listen, you will get kicked, and you will get banned if you constantly defy the rules.

Flagrant/Big violation:
You'll get kicked immediately, and banned if you keep it up.

Gross violation:
Immediate banning.

If you break a rule/a series of rules over a period of time, punishment changes ...

Within a week of a previous violation:
No softening of punishment. It will be treated as if you are not listening/constantly defying the rule.

Between a week to two weeks of a previous violation:
A warning or a stern kick.

Beyond two weeks of a previous violation:
A warning.

What do the people have voices for?
Those people with voices are people who are (or were) RW cast members at one time.

Does the channel have a statistics page?
It sure does! Check it out here.

Geez, why's everyone so quiet?
Don't be surprised if you happen to join the channel and see people, but no one's talking. Often people will leave their IRC clients running even while they aren't looking at the channel, are busy, or even while they're asleep or out of the house. Idling is a common sight on IRC channels.

If you stick around or leave the client running you'll likely see the channel come to life. Also keep in mind that you might be awake and hanging out in the channel at a time when most of its users are asleep. Give it some time!

If you want to hang out but hate how quiet it is, don't hesitate to invite your friends to the channel to help spice things up (just er, make sure they read the rules). Keep in mind, only very big (and even then, only a handful) IRC channels move a mile a minute! If you want to see #ragnarokwisdom like that, you gotta spread the word!

Who is Leo Von Frisch?
Leo Von Frisch is the channel's resident quote keeper. He maintains a list of quotes which can be accessed by saying "!quote" or "!quote" and a number.

If you're wondering, Leo Von Frisch is named for the NPC in iRO's Closed Betas that, in a very Engrishy manner, taught new players about the game and how to play it. Nowadays, he can now be found in Prontera's Chivalry building, as part of the Knight's test.

To that end, you can ask Leo to tell you a story and he'll say something from his days as a Novice tutor. There's other things he can do, too, but you'll have to hang out in the channel to find out!

Who the heck is Victoreet?!
Victoreet is the channel's resident bird/parrot/thing mascot. Try talking to him by typing out his nick and a message, and watch the fun begin! Aside from that, Victor can and will talk and act on his own, so don't be surprised to see him rambling without provocation.

Victoreet will respond to certain actions or phrases as well, but you'll have to hang out at the channel to see what he does. He's also got his own Twitter!

What's with all these CTCP Sounds?
That's Client to Client Protocol messages. There's more information on the whole CTCP Sounds thing at the CTCP SOUND FAQ.
