UG Chat Information

Previous thread: http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=380635

The History of UG Chat

The first UG chat ever was on a server called AfterNET. What happened was that the UG Operators could only control went on in that channel, not the rest of the server. So when idiots went and spammed other channels, the host 'Guitar_Gue' was banned, preventing new users from using the chat. Then, LordSephorith and his friend frostbite had a server and gave it to UG. What was different about this server is that UG controlled EVERYTHING in that server. After using LordSephiroth's server for quite some time, he and his friend decided that they could no longer fund it. SpacedOut quickly found another server in purevanity but sadly, it didn't last long. We then moved to irc.connorhd.net and were there for a few years before moving once again to alpha.ircster.com.

How can I talk on the Ultimate-Guitar server/channel?

The quickest and easiest way to get started is to use a java/web-based chat. One is provided by UG, a link to it can be found in the menu just above the forums, to the left of the search bar:

http://i43.photobucket.com/albums/e357/divid3d/New%20UG%20Chat%20Thread/menubar.png

Click the 'Chat' link. Once the page has loaded and you are in the chat, select a nickname by typing your desired nick into the box at the bottom right where it says 'Change nick to', and then press enter.

Another option, provided by Connorhd, is accessible at: http://www.ircster.com/
Just click 'Chat Now', type in your desired nickname and click 'Connect'. Then type /join #ultimate-guitar to join the UG Chat.

If you just want to get in there and start chatting, don't want to install new software or just aren't very good with computers, then this is probably the best option for you. All you need to do is choose a nickname and you're ready to roll!

Otherwise, the chat can be accessed on an IRC client such as mIRC (alternate clients are listed below).

mIRC

~ Downloading mIRC ~

To get the latest version of mIRC:

- Visit http://www.mirc.com/get.html

- Click 'Download mIRC', and when prompted, save the install file on your computer.

*Please note that mIRC will prompt you to register the software when the evaluation period is over. The program will still work when the evaluation period is over, you just have to wait a few seconds ater opening it before it lets you click 'continue'. If you don't want to bother with that at all, Version 6.03 is available here (http://stw.ryerson.ca/~gmicieli/mirc603) and won't prompt you on start-up. Thanks to Snyper for hosting the file.*



~ Installing mIRC ~

To install mIRC on your computer:

- When the install file has finished downloading, open it and follow the prompts. By default it will install in the following directory: C:/Program Files/mIRC



~ mIRC Setup ~

General install/setup information provided by mIRC can be found here: http://www.mirc.com/install.html

For specific instructions on how to reach the UG chat, see below.

- After installing mIRC, double click on the program shortcut and mIRC will run. The first time you use mIRC you will see a window with the options 'register now' and 'continue'. If you would like to trial the program, click 'continue'. If you would like to register and pay for it, click 'register now'.

- The 'mIRC Options' window (pictured below) is the next thing you will see, and while most of the settings here can be altered later once you're more familiar with the program, there are a few details which must be filled out before you can start chatting. Check the mIRC Help Files for information on the other settings.

http://i43.photobucket.com/albums/e357/divid3d/New%20UG%20Chat%20Thread/1mircoptions.jpg

- In the menu on the left, you will see that Connect is selected. Before you can connect to the UG server/channel and start chatting you will need to enter the following information into the connect dialog.

Full Name: You can enter your name here or a comment if you prefer (a period/full stop will do if you don't want to enter anything personal). Whatever you enter here can be seen by other people on IRC. Most people do not enter their real name.

Email Address: You can enter an email address or comment here (a period/full stop will do if you don't want to enter an email address). Most people do not enter their real email address.

Nickname: Your nickname is the name by which people will know you on IRC. It is possible that someone might already be using the nickname you choose. If that is the case, you should choose a different nickname.

- You can also enter an Alternative nickname which will be used if someone is already using your main nickname. If both nicknames are in use, mIRC inserts "/nick" into the status window edit box so that you can enter a new nickname and press the enter key.

- Next, select Servers in the menu on the left.

- Then click Add and the Add Server dialog will appear (pictured below).

http://i43.photobucket.com/albums/e357/divid3d/New%20UG%20Chat%20Thread/2addserver.jpg

- Enter the following information into the add server dialog.

Description: UG Chat Server
IRC Server: alpha.ircster.com
Ports: 6667
Group: *leave blank*
Password: *leave blank*

- Then click Add.

UG Chat Server should now be in the list of available servers (pictured below).

http://i43.photobucket.com/albums/e357/divid3d/New%20UG%20Chat%20Thread/3selectserver.jpg

- Make sure UG Chat Server is highlighted, and then click Select.

- The connect dialog will now reappear. If you are happy with the nickname chosen, click the Connect button.

- If a Favourites dialog appears, just close it for now. You can decide later whether or not you would like to use this feature to store your favourite channels.

- You should now see a Status window. You will know when you are connected when it welcomes you and gives you information about the server.

- Type: /join #ultimate-guitar and press enter.

- The #ultimate-guitar channel window will now open and you are ready to chat. A list of users currently connected to the channel can be seen on the right hand side.

- If at any point you would like to change your nickname, type: /nick <newnickname> and press enter. For example, typing /nick Bob would change your nick to Bob.

~ Official Rules ~

Please read these VERY CAREFULLY as you will not be given a second chance...

- No flooding of any kind.
- No asking to be a IRC Operator.
- No DoS/ICMP/Nuking our users. Users doing so will be banned permanently from the server and ISP will be contacted.
- No harmful bots.
- There will be no impersonating of our users or IRC Operators.
- Respect all users and IRC Operators.
- No threats towards our users or the IRC Network.
- No piracy, child pornography or any serving of anything that may be illegal.
- No spamming of channels, websites, etc.
- No registering nicks used by other people to prevent them from using the nick. You should only have your own nick registered.


~ Helpful Hints & Info ~

- Fonts
If using mIRC, you can click the icon in the top left corner of the status window or a channel window to change the font in that window (pictured below).

http://i43.photobucket.com/albums/e357/divid3d/New%20UG%20Chat%20Thread/4font-1.jpg

- Registering nicks
The command to register your current nick on the server is:
/nickserv register <password> <e-mail>
Please select a password which is difficult for others to guess, and use your real email address.

- Identifying nicks
The command to identify for your nick is:
/nickserv identify <password>
The password is the one you chose when you registered your nick.

- Aliases
If there are commands that you are likely to type often, such as the command to identify for your nickname, then mIRC users can set up shortcuts called 'aliases' to make things quicker and easier each time you'd like to use that command. For example, instead of typing /nickserv identify <password> you could just type /i and mIRC will do the rest for you.

To set up an alias in mIRC, you need to open the Scripts Editor, either using the button at the top of the screen (pictured below), or via the Tools menu.

http://i43.photobucket.com/albums/e357/divid3d/New%20UG%20Chat%20Thread/scriptseditorbutton.png

Select the Aliases tab. If there is already information in the list, do not delete it. Either enter your aliases above or below the pre-existing ones, with each alias on a new line.

To set up the alias mentioned above, where typing /i would replace /nickserv identify <password>, type the following information onto a new line:
/i /nickserv identify <password>
where <password> is replaced by the password you chose when you registered your nick.

You could also set up an alias to making joining the UG Chat easier, so that instead of typing /join #ultimate-guitar to enter the channel, you just need to type /ug. To do this, enter the information below on a new line:
/ug /join #ultimate-guitar

It should look like this:

http://i43.photobucket.com/albums/e357/divid3d/New%20UG%20Chat%20Thread/aliases.png

Click OK to save your new aliases, and now you can close the Scripts Editor window. From now on, you just need to type /i to identify yourself and /ug to join the UG Chat - easy!

- Actions
The command to complete an action, for example *~manda jumps around in excitement! is:
/me <action goes here>
For the above example I would have typed /me jumps around in excitement!

- mp3 scripts
To display the music you are listening to on your computer in the chat for all to see, you can use an mp3 script such as AMIP.
AMIP can be downloaded here http://amip.tools-for.net/wiki/amip/download and instructions for how to install and use it are provided on the site.

- Useful Commands:
For help regarding nicks:
/msg nickserv help
For help regarding channels:
/msg chanserv help

- Chat Ops
An operator is the equivalent of a moderator in the chat. There are several types of op, and you can tell which users are operators by the symbol in front of their nick in the userlist:
~ denotes a channel owner
& denotes a super op
@ denotes an op

If a user has one of these symbols in front of their name you should always follow their instructions. They have the power to kick you from the channel, ban you from the channel so that you are unable to speak, or kickban you, which removes you from the channel and does not allow you to rejoin until you are unbanned. Follow the guidelines listed in the next post and you won't have any trouble with the ops :)

- Other Stuff To Be Aware Of:

- Coloured text is a nuisance to most users of the channel as many have different coloured backgrounds. We would appreciate if you didn't change your text colour as it may make it unreadable for some. If you use mIRC and the colours are just too bland for you, you can change them. Alt+k will bring up a new window in which you can change your colours.

- 1337 speak is generally frowned upon. Shorthand, such as "ur" is acceptable but t4lKin lyk d1s is just being obnoxious.

- Although this is a guitar orientated site, conversations in the chat don't always have to do with guitars, and the forums are usually a better place for guitar/gear questions. Please don't come in and point out that this is a guitar site and we should talk about guitars. If you do have a guitar/gear question, feel free to ask it but don't be surprised if you are directed to the forums for an answer!

- If you enter the chat and people are already discussing a topic, try to feel your way into the conversation. If no one is talking, say something for people to respond to. Don't be shy, we were all new at once so we know what it was like.

- There are many scripts out there for you to customise your chat client, try http://mircscripts.com or http://nnscript.esnation.com.

GENERAL GUIDELINES FOR CHAT USERS


Be friendly and welcoming to new chatters - tricking them into quitting the chat or flaming them incessantly is NOT being friendly and welcoming.
Respect other users, ops and chat owners.
Take any verbal warnings or disciplinary action from the ops seriously. Be mature and make effort to amend your behaviour.
No racism.
Think before posting a link - whilst the chat is more relaxed than the forums, linking to anything hideous or illegal will put you at risk of punishment.
No excessive use of caps.
No flooding.
If there is a problem or you feel you have been banned unfairly, please post in the Chat Information thread or send a private message to divid3d.



GENERAL GUIDELINES FOR CHAT OPS


Always remember that the chat has never been as strict or serious as the forums/columns. Of course, some order needs to be kept, but keep in mind that the chat is meant to be a fun and relaxed environment for all.
Always try to give verbal warnings before resorting to kicking, and kick before resorting to banning (where possible - if it is something really serious then it may be appropriate to skip the verbal warning or kicking). Most people will change their behaviour if given a chance to.
Remember that time moves fast in IRC - bans rarely need to be in place for more than a day or two in order to get the point across. Regularly check the banlist and clear any of your bans that have been active for a sufficient period of time.
Respect other users, ops and chat owners.
Try to avoid deleting topics made by someone else (add your message to the end where possible and do not delete the "Welcome to #ultimate-guitar/UG Chat" message) or overturning the bans of others (unless a ban has been active for a very long time, try and discuss it with the op who made the ban, or a chat owner, before unbanning).
Do not give ops to people who have not been put on the auto-op list, (even for a few seconds) unless completely necessary. If more ops are needed in the channel, discuss it with divid3d.
Have fun and participate in conversations! :) Only step in and take action as an op when you need to.
Try to visit the Chat Information thread on a regular basis to keep yourself up to date with what is happening with the chat.
If there is a problem or you need help/advice, please post in the Chat Information thread or PM divid3d.



Problems/Issues

- If there are server problems or any other technical issues, please check the recent posts in this thread to see if other people are having the same problem as you, or if they have a solution to the problem. If you still require help, make a post detailing what is wrong. Connorhd is the owner of the server and posts in this thread occasionally when something is wrong or changed.

- If there are things occurring within the UG channel that you are unhappy about, please either post in this thread or send a private message to divid3d.

I find myself concerned about the direction chat has been taking in recent weeks. Previously chat was a nice place to go, somewhere where you could let your hair down more so than in the pit, it was a place where the moderation team was able to hobnob with some of the more dedicated users in a calmer and more relaxed environment without as much intervention or pointless arbitration of a fixed set of behavioural parametres.

Chat had rules, uncodified rules which were obvious, warn people what you were posting in links so people could avoid potential offence, general respect, not bowing and curtsying and you could mock the ops a little more than you can now.

The chat is becoming more and more an arm of the forums with the moderation team crossing over, mods who treat the chat more like the pit and seem to quash everything applying the letter rather than the spirit of the rules. I'm not going to name any names about who i think is doing a poor job, but there are certain ops who i think need to have thier powers either scaled back or revoked due to misuse.


That's just my opinion.

if you're referring to me, i don't remember any time where proper discussions (including pics) of taking dumps on people was allowed on chat. especially when the people involved were being utter idiots before as well, and being warned for it (in this occasion even TWO warnings before i swept them up with the banhammer).

I was unaware of matt's poop pictures prior to my post, i was discussing about the general undertone, and pooping on people i must refer to you numerous times when doug and clara were in chat with davey and colin.

Well we're glad that you can bring these concerns to us in an adult and honest manner. Nick, you know my name is top of the list. ;)

People do talk about the golden age of Doug a lot, as he was an operator who imposed no rules whatsoever. Supposedly, that is the golden age, where a lack of rules led to potential new members being flamed until they left, porn being posted back and forth no matter the age groups of the people in the room and no end of trolling, provocation, racism and abuse going on.

At current, the only person who has been banned for more than as much as one day is Caveman. Matt agreed, when he was unbanned a week early from his last major one, that one more ban would result in a permanent removal. He was then banned twice within four days. Afterwards, he went on a rant against Nick, myself and Manda. Put simply, he was banned twice, then proceeded to say that the rules of the channel owner were complete crap and that he would do a better job. It seems easier, overall, for him to find another channel to call home, so that is what he will now be doing.

Yes, there are now rules being enforced. There were always rules, there just weren't people around the enforce them, but, in my opinion, the chat is flourishing. In the time that Matt has been banned previously, for example, people actually started answering questions of newcomers, and even welcoming them, whereas previously they would have been met with abuse and mockery simply for having a guitar related question or not knowing of the chat previously. I see no reason for this to continue.

Many people on the chat are young teens or even younger. The ban that was originally handed out to user Marko was for linking a picture of both feces and porn. It was, quite frankly, disturbing. If there had no no ops enforcing rules, nothing would have been done about it.

From what I see, the chat is growing, expanding and becoming a much less argumentative place under the direction that Manda is currently leading it. If you disagree then by all means say so. In fact, most of the regulars from three to six years ago have disagreed at some point, claiming that this 'golden age' was better.

Chat has rules now. It's part of Ultimate-Guitar, which is a welcoming, hospitable place due to the fact that people who break the rules are removed. If Caveman wants to rant about me in other channels and post out of context statements to make me, and other ops that he labels immature children (which, by this time, is all of them) then he may do so. It is no business of other channel to interfere with another, and, as such, it simply won't happen. :rolleyes:

i've been using the chat a lot in the last few weeks and have been having a ball in there. it's felt like the old days, just with different people. i guess it depends what time of day you're in there though *shrugs*

the chat is still more relaxed than the forums, but things have tightened up a bit lately compared to the old days, which i think is for the best considering how much UG has grown and how many new users we have coming into the chat room. there's really no reason why people should be allowed to post gore/extremely graphic/pornographic imagery in there or get away with horrible behaviour... the chat is a part of UG and that sort of thing doesn't belong anywhere on this site, same with racism, blatant flaming, etc.

Chat had rules, uncodified rules which were obvious, warn people what you were posting in links so people could avoid potential offence, general respect, not bowing and curtsying and you could mock the ops a little more than you can now.
this stuff does depend a bit on which op(s) is/are active at the time (the same as how it depends which mods see rule-breaking posts on the forum - some mods will let certain things fly and some will not). for example i don't care if someone mocks me in a joking/playful manner, i will tolerate it and probably have a laugh. you can't just assume that all ops will tolerate that sort of thing though. all of us (even colohue :p:) don't mind a bit of fun/silliness from time to time in varying degrees, but if someone is being disrespectful or posting questionable links (without asking the ops if it would be ok first) then they shouldn't be surprised if they are punished for it. most bans in the chat last for between a couple of minutes and a day or two... they really aren't that big of a deal. to be banned for any longer you really have to do something serious or repeat offend many times.

The chat is becoming more and more an arm of the forums with the moderation team crossing over, mods who treat the chat more like the pit and seem to quash everything applying the letter rather than the spirit of the rules. I'm not going to name any names about who i think is doing a poor job, but there are certain ops who i think need to have thier powers either scaled back or revoked due to misuse.
i've not seen or heard of any examples of an op misusing their powers. some do uphold the rules more closely than others but that's always the case which such things. if you have any particular info/complaints then send me a PM and we can discuss it further :)

Chat had rules, uncodified rules which were obvious, warn people what you were posting in links so people could avoid potential offence, general respect, not bowing and curtsying and you could mock the ops a little more than you can now.

The rules have always been enforced, but they were typically enforced selectively.

If you showed up and you had been around for a while, but broke the "rules", we typically let you get by and may have scolded you privately about it depending on what it was. There was also a certain level of mutual respect between ops and the chat regulars. The regulars, even though they could get away with more, typically didn't abuse that and the ops generally respected that and didn't come down on them hard unless they were repeatedly breaking the rules. You'd also see a lot of the ops breaking the "op rules" like kicking people, changing folks nicks, and things of that sort. It was all done in good humor and none of the regulars threw a pissy fit about it.

Folks that showed up and hadn't been around a while typically were watched more carefully by everyone and were more likely to get yelled at or banned for breaking the "rules". I guess the best way of putting it is that there was the "chat clique" that included ops and non-ops and members of the clique had a little more freedom than those that didn't.

In a lot of ways, chat is following the same path that the forums did. I remember when the forums were moderated very similar to how chat was. As communities grow this is a natural progression, rules typically start out loosely enforced and as the community grows, they become stricter and stricter. I've seen many communities go through that same progression, UG and chat inclusive. The advantage you have with chat is that you can break off your own channel and invite friends and post whatever you want.

All that being said, I don't think the rules in chat are all that strict. They certainly aren't anything different from what most other IRC channels would be. If an op is banning people frivolously then that is an administration problem and one of the SOps should deal with it. I don't know how it is now, but just because you were a mod didn't mean you were an op (although generally they were) and just because you weren't a mod didn't mean you couldn't be an op. It was generally administered separately from the forums.

I think in part it may have to do with the move to a larger network that isn't controlled by someone on UG. Generally, someone here would maintain the server and we wouldn't have to abide by server rules. I don't know how much of this is a result of being on a larger network, but generally the attitude of the channel has been a lot more relaxed when other people weren't peering in and/or in charge of the network.

Anyway, just my $.02. I haven't really been around that much to observe what you are talking about, but it doesn't surprise me. In fact I'm surprised that, if it is that way, that it took this long. The chat has been around for a long time (dhaven.lomag.net, remember that?), so the fact it made it this far is pretty incredible (again if what you are saying is true, I can't say I've observed it)

i've not seen or heard of any examples of an op misusing their powers.

ha! Ops are always abusive, that's kinda the point isn't it ;)

Ok I may as well chime in with my two cents now since its my channel and all. :p:

The chat has made a massive improvement in the past few months, sure there are many idle times but thats to be expected of IRC.

However one or two things I have to make clear:

1. Whilst the forum and chatrooms are unrelated if you choose to continuously troll the chatroom in a destructive or offensive manner your IP address will be forwarded to the sites administrators.

2. Being a CC. Mod. SMod etc does not guarantee you ops in the chat, if you aren't a reg in chat you won't be opped simple as. I've been hassled about this but my view stands, I don't want 6000 whiney bitchy emails from people moaning about oper abuse so only people i know will be op'd.

-----

Also on the subject of the chat rules:

There are none, apart from don't be a dick.

If you troll people aren't going to fall for it. Seriously I most likely have more fun than you, just by playing along to your stupid games. If you think you're funny you're not. If you think you're annoying, you're not. You aren't original and you won't be banned just for trolling.

You will be banned for going overboard. Theres a difference between two people having a laugh by being insulting and one person just trying to insult people.

Flaming and insults are allowed, but if you're trying to actually be offensive, get a grip and get over yourself its the internats fgs.

the ops reserve the right to do what they like to keep the place peaceful. If you're a tard suffer the consequences.

So, I'm not sure if anyone looks at this thread anymore, but I've been trying to re-establish the chat as a good thing/place for UG members and one of the bigger obstacles I'm having is that some (but not all) people who try to go to the java chat can't get in. I personally recieve an error message when I click the link.

The thing is, I'm not sure what the issue actually is because the java chat still works for some. Could it be a problem with java on each person's computer/browser?

Since its not happening to everyone and only happening to me on one of my computers it seems like more of a user related issue than a site one. It would probably be a good idea to find out which browsers are being used and if Java is up to date or not.

Also, anyone trying to access the chat through Java will have to make sure they click NO and don't block the application.

Well damn. I just updated java a night or two ago but for a while in both opera and firefox I was given the same error. Let me see if I can go find the actual error people keep getting.

Ok, people have mentioned a startup error. Lo and behold, what i get for clicking the wrong button in that pop up.

Maybe that's what I've been doing this whole time. Maybe it's what others have been doing. That java update was to see if that was part of the problem. I'll mention all this in the thread I started.
