Have you ever thought about talking with your fellow players in real time? Ever needed to work on a compiled post for the RP and had trouble waiting for PMs to come and go?
Enough of that sales pitch.
After the pub quiz we thought it would be fun to have a real time chatroom to talk amongst ourselves. So, I bring you:
The Chatroom (Neatchat is dead; Link removed.)!
Currently at:Slack chatroom.
Talk about the current developments, talk about the wheater, talk about the metaverse. All metaguards are welcome to join. So let's set up a few simple rules to make this work:
1- The room is not intended to be a planning center. ARG planning should be done in the forums. But, since we'll talk about the ARG there as well, should interesting theories arise, by all means bring them here.
2- There is no way to enforce naming conventions in the chatroom, so I'll ask that Metaguards use the same name as they use in the forums and don't go switching names all the time.
3- Under no circunstance use the name of another Metaguard
! This will warrant banning from the chatroom should we identify the troll pretending to be another person.
4- Overall forum rules do apply. Don't be a jerk and we'll be happier for it.
I'll ask that no one posts the link on Twitter. It's open to many people not involved with WTF and the goal of this chatroom is to allow us to talk about ourselves and about things not necessarily related to WTF. Since we can't control who joins the chat, it could bring strangers and trolls to spoil our fun. But I'll repeat here: All metagurads are welcome to join. Yes, that includes you dear lurker who only posted in the Introduction thread.
Joe, Mr. A, Gurt, Ed, Metaneko... I'll be sending some PMs anyway, but if you feel like you want to just chat around about stuff, by all means join us.
On the chat itself. If you click on a person's name in the sidebar, you'll open a private one-on-one channel of communication. There's no way to make a sub-room for more people. Other than that, it's fairly intuitive. Any doubts, comments, sugestions or anything, just comment here.
We had a little incident, someone joined under the username "H" and didn't speak at all. Even after we asked who he was. This H in question as temporarily kicked out of the room (1 hour) in our unfortunate paranoia. We'll avoid banning people who are not trolling in the future. If whoever is this H is one of our users in the forum, please, accept my apologies.
The only behaviour passive of banning is trolling or impersonating another metaguard.
Sicon has opened a voice chat channel as well. So, you can get the software here
In order to join the room you'll have to add Sicon, so tell him your username, as it is invitation only. Adressing Morgan's Visit. On this same thread.
