It depends on the version of Trillian you are using. 0.74 works funny with IRC, but the Pro versions 1 & 2 work really well. That's all I use for my chatting needs.

Can we add another rule?

17463. Giving a running commentary on the Star Wars Trilogy is strictly forbidden, even to Ops.

Hmm, it's Return of the Jedi at the moment. ;) Anyway, that's off-topic. I'll try to cut down on it in the future...

OK, just to spell this out clearly: no "1337 speak" or other stupid things like that. If you're going to write a message, write it properly. "[I am an idiot]" and "joo" are not words, "you" is.

D'oh, that pesky word filter. It's all the fault of a certain gold thing that presumably engages in combat...

Are bouncers allowed in #tycoon?
Because i'm renting a bouncer.

(Bouncer is a bot-ish thing that stays in the channel when i'm gone, ensuring noone steals my nick, and it can be set to log on a specific event (I'd set it to log everything containing zetor, Zetor2003, thor, rune, thorrune), and... Well, that's pretty much it.)

i've replied to that post many times but some smart arse moderator keeps deleting it for no reason. as far as i know, owen doesnt like topics or posts deleted, because that would mean there is no proof of something happening.

so, whichever mod is deleting this, reply why, because your obviously sad.



anyway, as i said earlier, my reply is "what have i done now? :D"
Thanks,
Adam Reece.

CG1, there usually is a reason for that. This time, it's that it's spam.

Some months ago, you kept saying words like "[I am an idiot]" and so on, so I stuck a load of words like this in the word filter. Then I tried to actually use one of them a few days ago to make a point that they weren't allowed, and it replaced it with "". That was all.

Anyway, end of discussion when it comes to this...

No bouncers Chris? That's a bit hypocritical, isn't it? ;)

Well, bouncers are okay if you can't tell that it's a bouncer.

So that means no annoying[*] away/logging/disconnect messages.

[*] It is worth pointing out that there is no way to make these messages not annoying :D

You have to put it on another line, or at least give us some kind of clue...

It'll be

ThorRune - me
thorrune - bouncer

Could make it
ThorBouncer
if that's better...

Well, seeing as IRC nicks are case-insensitive, you'd have to.

That comment was to ChrisCF, not you anyways.
