Instructables IRC (Much better than Meebo)

After getting fed up with Meebo, and its guests floating in and out, causing disturbances in the force and whatnot, A few other mods, and myself, are trying to educate other members on the benefits and use of the instructables IRC chatroom.Click here to get educated!

Harrasment on Instructables

There's has been a lot of bullying around instructables lately, especially the chatroom. One person to bring up is named "adman". So all of you know(i don't like him either), he hasn't done much "hacking". Everything he does is pretty basic. The ads that come up are part of meebo even if he isn't there. The ads are what make meebo free. When everyone is randomly warned, he is just warning everyone. And when he pretends to be someone and changes the same color, the same can be done if you are a meebo member. Finally, when he makes clones, he is just opening a bunch of tabs. I do not want everyone to worry about this person. He is a bad influence and should be ignored. Don't listen to anything he says. He is mean and should not be trusted. If he logs on, block him immediately so he will not annoy you. Another thing is that some people's feeling are getting hurt because the adman is trying to pretend to be the person and says bad things. If this happens, just ignore and not say anything. Eventually, the adman should get bored and leave(i hope...). I hope you guys have a nice time at instructables and ignore the negative stuff that happens. It's just part of life. The world isn't perfect and none in the world is liked by everyone. I hope you have a nice day and treat others nicely. Happy ibling.

Tired of this thing in the chatroom

Why do I keep having this error! I haven't been in the chat room myself for a while now Apparently others can still get on I know there really isn't much instructables can do I checked meebo and nothing the closest is that the group is made private and I know that's not true

Message to all whom use the chatroom.

Hi, gmjhowe here, As many of you may know, i am currently a Moderator inside the meebo chatroom we have on this site. Me along with two others maintain order in the chatroom.The current Mods, are Bumpus, and Adrian Monk I chose these two as they are both chatroom regulars, they have meebo accounts, and are in different time zones to me.Now, we have a few problems, but they are easily fixed with these few simple rules.- People using the chatroom should always use their instructables username- The chatroom is still part of instructables, and we go by the same rules, and be nice policy- People will be given two formal warnings before they are banned, we will not just ban people with no warning.In order to prevent 'imposters' were going to use a simple code system.Basically, all the regulars and visitors to the chatroom will get issued a simple 4-digit code (which will be PMed to their account on ibles). The idea being, that when in the chatroom they can IM me the code, to prove they are who they say they are.Think of it like Captcha.I know this isn't ideal, but it will manage fine for now.Thanks for reading, any questions, just ask.- gmjhoweTo get your 4-digit code, contact me via PM or leave a comment below.

Better Chatroom -- IRC Channel

EDITFrom what I've heard, the meebo chatroom has some flaws... I figure its worth a shot of trying again in IRC. I won't go into the details, but it should be a way better method of chatting ;-)I suggest Chatzilla for a client. There's also [www.mibbit.com mibbit] which is online and has an embeddable widget, but I don't really like it as much.I want an IRC channel, and god-dangit I'm going to make one!Its #instructables on irc.freenode.netIf you're already using something like Pidgin or Trillian, IRC should probably be on there, just pick a username, server is "irc.freenode.net", then just join the chat #instructablesIf you aren't -- MIRC Chatzilla is a good client...Anyway... just wanted to let y'all know it exists :P

Chatroom abuse

The Chatroom can be easily abused. The 'Warning" system does not have any requirements, which means that anyone can warn someone for no particular reason. Each time a person is warned more than 4 times in a row, that person is muted for a specific amount of time. Each 4 more warnings is punished by 5 minutes of being muted. Meaning that if someone is warned 8 times, that person will be muted for 10 minutes.Some persons are abusing this system and warning people for no reason. Yesterday, I was warned 32 times. Mostly it wasLittlechef37Okoshima.Linuxh4xor (3 times, as part of the fun. Still, you jerk)The consequence of their joking, was that I was muted over 5 times.....almost 25 minutes (not in a row though)This kind of people simply ruin the experience.I know the chatroom has nothing to do with instructables, just meebo. But because of those jerks, the 32 warnings will now follow me forever (the chatroom tracks your IP adress) and if I am warned in the future, the punishes will be more severe. (Permanent banning from the chatroom is actually possible if a member is warned too much)
