Come join the official Wiki SWTOR IRC channel: chat.freenode.net, #wikiswtor
To enable in-depth conversations and fast responses to questions, an IRC channel has been created. Administrators are frequently online and can assist with questions or issues. This is a community resource, so please make yourself at home. Wiki SWTOR and Gamepedia use the Freenode IRC network. Gamepedia's channel can be reached at #gamepedia.
What is IRC?[edit source]
Internet Relay Chat (IRC) is a form of real-time Internet text messaging (chat) or synchronous conferencing. It is mainly designed for group communication in discussion forums, called channels, but also allows one-to-one communication via private message as well as chat and data transfer (including file sharing).
Channel rules[edit source]
- Be civil. Abusive language, harassment, personal attacks, and trolling are not tolerated.
- No spamming or large blocks of text. If needed, use a pasting service like Pastey.org.
- No exploits or other topics that break SWTOR's EULA or TOS, including testing NDA, will be discussed on the channel.
- English is the official language.
Basic IRC commands[edit source]
Basic IRC commands can be used by everyone. Commands begin with a forward slash followed directly by the command: (Note: Do not type < or > in these commands)
/join #<channel> -- Connects you to <channel>. All channels are preceeded by a hash (#).
/nick <NewNick> -- Changes your current nick to <NewNick>
/me <action> -- Displays <action> in the chatroom (i.e. /me waves yields "*JohnSmith waves" to the chatroom)
/away <Message> -- Sets your status to Away and sends <Message> to anyone who messages you
/msg <nick> <message> -- Sends <message> only to to <nick> rather than the channel at large
/quit -- Terminates your IRC connection
