2. You can download an IRC client such as mIRC (Windows), kvIRC (Windows), or Colloquy (Apple) and visit the chatroom without having to use a web browser or visit the site.

If you have trouble setting up your IRC client, use the other method to join the chat and someone can walk you through it.

What are the rules of the chatroom?

Lengthy diatribes. No lengthy diatribes.

Flaming. We don't allow flaming. Flaming means insulting other members of the chatroom/forums. Be nice at all times. We try hard to keep things very friendly here. No flaming of any kind for any reason, period. Trying to induce others to flame (trolling) is a no-no too. If you feel you were flamed in chat, please inform the ops in private. DO NOT respond to the person who flamed you in kind. That will only escalate the situation and get yourself in trouble.

Profanity. The F-word, S-word and other swear words are discouraged and in many occasions not tolerated at all. If a staff member deems your swearing excessive or used in an inappropriate context, you will be warned, kicked, or in some cases banned. This is not up for debate, and if you want to play it safe, don't swear at all.

Harassment. Like flaming and other antagonistic behaviors, harassment in all of it's forms will not be tolerated at Eyes on Final Fantasy. Harassment is defined as contact (or attention, eg. mentioning of the member in posts) that is expressly and directly known to be unwanted by the receiving party. This contact could take place anywhere on the Eyes on Final Fantasy site, forums, chatroom or via emails sent using Eyes on Final Fantasy. Eyes on Final Fantasy's staff do not take responsibility for any harassment taking place outside of these areas (this includes private chat outside of the #eoff chatroom), although we can offer guidance in such situations.

We expect all of our members to resolve conflicts as adults. Talk it out, be reasonable, find a compromise. If this is impossible, if you dislike a person, or if you do not wish to contact that person or see their posts, please use the ignore feature. If the offending member does not leave you alone when asked or subverts your efforts to not be in contact with them and you have made an effort to make your wishes clear, then you should contact a member of EoFF staff.

Advertising. If you came here just to advertise, don't waste your time. Anything viewed by the staff as blatant advertising will result in a warn, kick or ban.

Spamming. If you come into chat and constantly type out things that are completely nonsensical and disrupt the flow of the chatroom entirely, it will be considered spam. This can result in a warn, kick or ban.

Impersonation. Do not impersonate other members of Eyes on Final Fantasy by using their nickname. Likewise, do not impersonate staff by warning people as if you are staff.

External Links. Linking to pornography will lead to a ban. Linking to other crude material may lead to a warn, kick or ban.

Crude Discussion. Discussion of a nature deemed by a staff member to be inappropriate for the chatroom may lead to a warn, kick or ban.

Ruining The Groove. If your general attitude is agreed by a number of staff to be disruptive to the atmosphere of the chatroom, you may be warned, kicked or banned.

Private Chat. Unfortunately not all staff have authority over what is said in private chat. If you have any issues regarding someone who his bugging you via private chat, it is suggested that you ignore them using the ignore feature. If they find a way to harass you further, please contact an IRCop. These are people who moderate the server. IRCops include Roogle, Aexoden, rubah and Arche.

Kicking. Kicking can, on occasion, be used as a way to warn members. It can also be used as a joke on occasion. Consider it a reminder of the rules and if you are following all the rules and do not receive any kind of warning, that it is a joke. If you get kicked repeatedly and do not feel it was justified, please contact a member of the EoFF staff.

Banning. Bans will last for a length of time deemed appropriate by the staff. Some bans may last minutes, some hours, some days, some indefinitely.

How do I register my nickname?

Registering your nickname will help you make sure that no one uses your nickname while you are gone. You can register your nickname by using the following command:

/msg nickserv register PASSWORD EMAIL

What do all of the symbols next to the usernames mean?

The symbols denote the type of user:

~Username means that the user is the owner of the channel or an IRC Operator.
&Username means that the user is a protected operator and cannot be kicked or banned by a normal operator.
@Username means that the user is an operator. He can kick, ban, promote users to op, half-op, or voice, and set channel modes.
%Username means that the user is a half-operator. He can kick, ban, or promote users to voice.
+Username means that the user is voiced and can still speak if the room is moderated (+m).

What is the topic of #eoff?

Feel free to talk about whatever you want. Think of #eoff as a real time General Chat. You can talk about your day, something on your mind, TV shows, or video games! Remember to follow all of the rules at Eyes on Final Fantasy and have fun.

What are some other channels besides #eoff?

#eoff is the primary channel of the community. There are a few other channels on the server that serve different purposes. Please note that these channels fall outside of Eyes on Final Fantasy and may have their own rules. Here are a couple of channels on the server:

#waiting_bar : A channel occupied by several helpful bots and longtime members of Eyes on Final Fantasy such as cl_out. One of the bots is notable for its Japanese dictionary. You can use the Japanese dictionary by typing ? Word to translate it from English to Japanese or Japanese to English. The bot is located in #eoff, too. Want to brush up on your Japanese? Give it a try.

#tot : A channel for the chatroom game Truth or Truth. Truth or Truth is like the childhood game Truth or Dare with only truth in play. Invite your friends and ask embarassing questions!

I'm looking for someone. How can I see if they are online?

If you need to see when someone has last spoke or visited the channel, type the following:

seen Nickname

A helpful bot will tell you their last appearance in the channel along with their last line.

Example:

Roogle: seen Mel
Utamaru: Roogle: Person who was Mel 3 hours and 52 minutes ago, spoke 4 hours and 33 minutes ago; is here known as mel is sleeping.

I joined the channel and I see a list of nicknames on the side of the screen, but I don't see anyone talking. Now I'm mad as a bug!

You may need to wait some time for others to see your message and respond. The list of users is who is currently in the chatroom, but users may be away from the computer or doing something else at the moment.

If you are curious to see how long it has been since the last active conversation, try typing the following:

!dead

A helpful bot will display the time since the end of the last conversation.

Example:

Roogle: !dead
Yumitsuka: #eoff has been dead for 4 minutes and 24.47 seconds.

Are there any games to play in #eoff?

Yes, there are two games that are played in the channel. The first is Dokal: World of Eternal Life, a fully interactive role-playing game with a scripted battle system. You can read about its availability in the topic of the chatroom when you come in. The second is Truth or Truth, which can be played by inviting a group of users into #tot.
