Soul Arena IRC Channel




Our IRC-Channel

As you may know already, Soul-Arena.com has opened up its own official IRC chat channel. This will give our members the opportunity to talk freely to each other. We recommend everybody uses the exact same username as he/she has on his/her Soul-Arena.com account.

Server & Channel

To connect to our IRC-channel you'll need the following information:

{$image.pre} Server: irc.rizon.net
{$image.pre} Channel: #soul-arena
{$image.pre} Link: If you already have an IRC-Client installed, just click here to connect to the channel.

What is IRC

Internet Relay Chat (IRC) is one of the most popular and most interactive services on the Internet. It's just like msn or yahoo chatrooms. Generally, the user (such as you) runs a program (called a "client") to connect to a server on one of the IRC nets. The server relays information to and from other servers on the same net. The recommended client is mIRC.

How to join the channel

If you want to join our IRC-channel, just follow the tutorial underneath. Everything is explained step by step.

  • Go to http://www.mirc.com/get.html and download the latest mIRC version. The download location does not matter since all the files are the same. However, try to download it from the location nearest to you.
  • Install the application.
  • When you run mIRC for the first time, it asks you for your full name, e-mail address, your nickname and alternative. Fill in all these things. Please try to use your soul-arena game name so that everyone can tell who you are.
  • Once you are done filling in this information, it's time to select a server. Our channel (#soul-arena) is located on the Rizon server. So, from the option menu, select "servers", and hit "Add". Fill in the following data, and hit the ok-button. Description: Rizon - IRC Server: irc.rizon.net - Port(s): 6667
  • In the dropbox called IRC Server, you will now see Rizon as the selected server. Click "connect to server".
  • Now you are connected to the server. You are not connected to the channel yet. Go to the very bottom and type /join #soul-arena exactly as it's written here.
  • If you did everything right, you should now be connected to the Soul-Arena.com IRC Channel.

Basic IRC-commands
/server irc.rizon.net or /s irc.rizon.net
Change server/open up a new connection to irc.rizon.net

/join #soul-arena or /j #soul-arena
You join the channel #soul-arena.

/nick newnick
Changes your nick to "newnick".

/help
This works in many clients. Try it!

/quit good night!
You quit IRC completely, with the parting comment so that others see "yournick (good night!)".
Rules

While in a channel, follow the lead of the channel ops there. If you antagonize them, you may be "kicked" out of the channel forcibly and possibly "banned" from returning. As a reminder, the way we handle things in the IRC channel is very much different than the way we operate in the forum.

{$image.pre3} No spamming and/or flooding and/or repeating
Spamming, flooding, or repeating the same thing is not allowed. Flooding in IRC terms is typing text really fast. Repeating is saying the same thing over and over again.

{$image.pre3} No Flaming
We do not tolerate any kind of flaming. Flaming anyone will result in an instant kick or ban. Cussing is allowed, however, as long as its not excessive.

{$image.pre3} No Advertising (That means no other channels and/or websites).
Absolutely no form of advertisement is allowed, including other channels/websites or advertising your clan to recruit people. Please keep the clan recruitment in the forum section made for it.

{$image.pre3} English Language Only
This may seem unfair, but unfortunately it is the only language we are allowing in the channel. There are reasons for this, but the channel rules cannot be enforced if we do not know the language, and it will be a mess if everyone talks in a different language.

{$image.pre3} No Caps Abuse
Abusing caps and typing sentences like "OMG I JUST MADE THE BEST CLAN EVER TYPE 15264156 TO JOIN MY CLAN NOW" can get you banned automatically.

{$image.pre3} No Roleplaying (That means no /me usage).
Due to people abusing the /me command and the channel being filled with it, this rule was made to stop it as, it is just annoying and not the purpose of chat. If you really do want to role-play, go to #na-roleplay

{$image.pre3} No OP/Mod begging
We wont op you, no matter how many times you ask. If there is a need for a new op, we will talk to the person ourselves and make him one.

{$image.pre3} No racial slurs
Self-explanatory.

{$image.pre3} No inappropriate nicknames
Inappropriate nick names will get you kicked/banned from the channel.

{$image.pre3} Don't tell operators when to kick/ban and/or enforce rules!
We as mods will always ban when we feel a rule is broken, so don't tell us who to ban.
Problems

Sometimes your firewall blocks the IRC from connecting to the server. If that happens, try disabling your firewall and re-connecting again. If it works, then try unblocking IRC. For example, if you are using zonealarm firewall, go to IM Sceurity->settings->Advanced-> Uncheck block IRC.

If you're still having problems, PM Raizen-1 for more help. He'll try to help you in every possible way he can.
