The chat room was created by Powerlord and Braxus, former maintainers of the Video Game Music Sister Sites (VGMSS) in the interest of carrying on live chats about Videogames and Videogame music. You can discuss more than that, and other subjects come up often. Chatters are also typically members of the forums.
#vgmusic is the official IRC community of VGMusic.com users. Other channels populated by our users are not officially supported by VGMusic.com and the website staff is not responsible for their content.
Typically the chat would carry an MPAA rating of PG-13 or higher; parental discretion is advised. If you encounter content you consider offensive in the channels you are encouraged to discuss the situation with the operators or simply leave the channel.
To connect to our chatroom, you need an IRC client (example: mIRC for Windows). If you'd like to learn how to use mIRC, check out Forteblast's tutorial! (Shockwave Flash Player required.)
With a normal IRC client, change the server to irc.esper.net (port 5555 or 6667) and use the command "/join #vgmusic" to join the channel. You may also specify an Espernet server directly; see their website for a list of servers.
In order to keep things running smoothly in the chatroom, we have instituted a few rules.
|Rule||Reason for Rule|
|Script Abuse||Please keep your script use to a minimum. Any scripts that output large amounts of text, or can be triggered by anyone in the channel (eggdrop bots, search bots, etc.) are not allowed. Go to #trivia for games and script testing.|
|Sexual/Political/Religious Discussions||These types of conversations are not forbidden but are discouraged as they often lead to arguments or "flame wars". If at any point the conversation heads towards a flame war, all participants will be warned that continuing it will lead to a ban. Please respect the opinions of other users at all times. Also, overtly sexually explicit conversations are not allowed at any time.|
|Profanity||Profanity used to an excessive degree is forbidden. If other users or Ops ask you to tone down your language, please do so.|
|Insulting and/or Harassing Others||
If you have a grudge against someone, please take it to private messages (double-click on the user name if using mIRC, or type the command "/query [nickname]") or another channel.
Arguments in the channel are not tolerated and if any occur the Ops are encouraged to deal with them accordingly. Instigating an argument (also called "flaming") is grounds for an immediate ban.
If someone is harassing you, you can also use the command:
|Excessive Advertising||Please refrain from advertising websites or IRC channels repeatedly. It just angers people who are chatting.|
|Inappropriate Use||#vgmusic is not for role-playing (join #rphaven instead) or file-sharing. Please do these things elsewhere.|
Colors are typically not allowed in #vgmusic (mode +c). Any messages sent to the channel containing color will be not be delivered.
For those of you who don't know IRC that well, the Ops are the people who keep the channel from being spammed and/or keep order. These are the Ops and a short description of who they are.
All Ops are indicated in the channel list by an @ symbol next to their nicks. There are 3 levels of Ops.
|Suds||Quality control coordinator and update staff|
|dw_junon||FAQ Editor and Forums Administrator|
|Lunar (B1itz Lunar)||Update staff|
|Secret Agent Man||Coder and Site Developer|
If Lucia is not in the channel, these commands will not work.
|seen nick||Shows when Lucia last saw nick.|
|seennick nick||Shows when Lucia last saw nick, but doesn't report back any nick changes.|
