Well, so, drop it? Efnet seems fine at the moment and I'm not using Omninet neither, so...

DJ Omnimaga

By the way, the only issue I can see about EFnet is that sometimes, some servers are annoying and will not let you connect or will ban you for no reason, but there are 40+ EFnet servers available and there are always many that will let you connect. The other downside is the 9 characters nickname lenght. But Omnimaga channel stayed EFnet-only for almost 3 years before finally being relayed to an Omninet one and it wasn't that much of an issue. The only reason why I moved it from EFnet entirely in 2006-Early 2009 is because we lacked a botnet and knew nobody trustable enough to lend us one.

Well yeah, Omninet has a Chanserv and half-ops and stuff, but who needs that when you have a good botnet?

So yeah, I updated the first post. While the Omninet channel is still available for the time being, the post now only mentions EFnet and WalrusIRC.

DJ Omnimaga

Bump:

I updated the main post to include our secondary channels, since this topic is in the site navigation. This means #cw-anime, #cw-craft and #cw-spam. Of course anime talk is still allowed in #codewalrus, but we got a lot of anime fans so #cw-anime can get handy to avoid cluttering the main chat during busy times, plus it has the extra benefit of being on EFnet. #cw-craft is basically the Minecraft server chat and #cw-spam is a bot testing channel.

@Juju & DJ Omnimaga, were you really following the rules this morning at 9 ? :trollface:

WIRC thinks the parenthesis is part of the link, making the link unusable.

DJ Omnimaga

Actually that would probably go in the CodeWalrus tools sub-forum (which is where WalrusIRC progress/downtime reports are posted), but let's poke @Juju about it

I gained the habit of always adding spaces after links a decade ago personally, though, because many IRC clients and shoutboxes, as well as forum softwares, thought that periods and stuff were parts of website links :P

Like DJ said, I'd work around this by adding a space. Many applications have space-terminated URL rules.

You can also use that satanic regex someone on stackoverflow made. but i think urls only allow [a-zA-Z\-] anyway.
Legends say if you spam more than DJ Omnimaga, you will become a walrus...


aeTIos

Nah, they can have special characters. For example wikipedia urls often have ( ) in them: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Game_(mind_game)

Snektron

Oh good point. Then its the fault of their IRC client :P

DJ Omnimaga

Now that you mention special characters, I guess it could be hard for juju to fix the issue first mentioned above, since this could cause URLs that have parentheses in them to not be completely parsed. I noticed this happened in some clients before. >.<

Juju

Yeah, the thing with automatic URL parsing, some special characters like () are legal in URLs so the client doesn't really know where to end.

If I want post a message in the chat, I must have posted five posts? That is true?
