  • New Toy's for the website regulars, Happy Holidays! New Chat Room...

    I want to thank all of those who have already made a visit to test out the new services.

    Below is a overview of the new Chat Room, a list of instructions and commands, a basic how too..

    The Old room is still in operation, you can see in the navigation bar, top of page there are now to TAB's, one says "CHAT" and one says IRC CHAT.

    IRC CHAT is the new room!

    When you click the link to enter the chat room, please select your desired nick name before entering. If you forget you can still change it with the following command

    /nick newnick Where is says "newnick" put your name. Once you are logged into the room. (warning, proper first names may already be registered in the channel services, try something different if you can't choose your first name)

    The room also has a Trivia Bot, type the command in room and get a 10 question Science / Science Fiction trivia game! Everyone can play along and you can see who is the trivia champ.

    !Trivia When logged into the room type explanation point Trivia as it shows in red.

    More Information about trivia
    Spoiler: 
    Teams:
    When somebody does the command !trivia team, team mode begins. With a default number of questions in the round. (10 questions)
    Team 1: This specifies the name of Team 1.
    Team 2: Name of team 2.
    (Team 3): Name of Team 3. If used.
    (Team 4): Name of Team 4. If used.
    Tied message: If at the end of the round if any number of teams are tied for first place.
    Team 1 victory message: Message displayed if team 1 wins.
    Team 2 victory message: Message displayed if team 2 wins.
    Team 3 victory message: Message displayed if team 3 wins.
    Team 4 victory message: Message displayed if team 4 wins.
    For example to make the team 1 victory message:

    "Team 1 soundly whoops the butts of Team 2".
    "*t1 soundly whoops the butts of *t2".

    The *t1 and *t2 are replaced with Team 1's and Team 2's names.
    Limit Join Period: You can choose to limit the amount of questions which a person must have joined a team by. Or simply leave it not depressed and have no limit.

    Themes dialog.
    Allows certain !themes to be added, the themes themselves are rather simple, when set they allow for a different number or questions, question file, and an option to use team mode with this theme.
