FPS Chat Room

As part of any interactive variety show, the Funday Pawpet Show relies on its viewers to provide feedback. One such method is the usage of an internet relay chat (IRC) room.

Where is this chat room?

The Funday Pawpet Show utilizes its own chat room, located on irc.pawpet.tv. Users can point an IRC client of their choice to this server and it will be automatically connected.

How Do I Get Connected?

If you already have an IRC client set up, you can use this link:

irc://irc.pawpet.tv/pawpet

If that doesn't work, you need to get an appropriate IRC client for your computer.

Simplied, crude instructions to get into channel

These should be the basics of getting online, and as you work the program more, you will learn the other functions, such as how to save server settings.

Other Pawpet IRC Info

IRC Ports 6667 or 7000 (7000 is preferred, especially if you may have bad firmware in your router, or messed up firewall software)

SSL port: 6697 (self signed certificate)

HOW TO REGISTER AND IDENTIFY WITH YOUR NICKNAME!

(note entries in < > mean you supply your own password/email address, but do not include the <> )

Services are now active, so if you wish to protect your nick name, you may register your nickname. To do so, from your IRC client, type

/server irc.pawpet.tv:7000

Then after you are taken to the chat room..

/msg NickServ register <password> <email address>

Be sure to use a valid email address. You will receive an email that will tell you to type in another command. Once you have typed this command in, quit your IRC program and then restart.

Once you have done this, you will need to identify to the server, so after connecting, you would type:

/msg nickserv identify <password>

or you can use your password in the server password field and get automatically identified once you connect.

/server irc.pawpet.tv:7000:<password>

Or fill in the Server password field in your client's network settings.

If you wish to use multiple nicknames, you may add, or group nicknames together.

/nick <newnick>

/msg nickserv group <original nick> <password>

RULES RULES RULES RULES RULES!!!

The Pawpet IRC is for goofiness and fun. In order to allow everybody to have fun and feel welcome, we have to enforce some rules: one person's right is another person's obligation and vice versa!

The following things are not tolerated, and may get you banned2):

Try to keep the general language to PG-13.

Other than that, the mood is just to be silly.

What if I can't install IRC, or I'm behind a nasty firewall?

You can utilize a web based irc client. It isn't pretty, but in desperate measures, it will get you in.
