An introduction to our channel (and we hope you may want to make it yours as well)😊

Channel #World-Chat was founded in 9 January 2012, and grew into one of the largest channels on DALnet IRC Network. The number of users has significantly varied over the years, especially with the advent of many new chat clients.

From day one to the present time, #World-Chat remains a friendly channel. It's a great place to meet and make good friends, and get your IRC questions answered. Our goal remains to keep #World-Chat a friendly, family oriented chat channel. We have a nice pool of regular users, and of course our friendly staff. If you have been around and visited here much in the past you might see some nicks you recognize from way back, along with a lot of new folks.

So come on in to #World-Chat, relax and don't worry that you are new and inexperienced...remember, we ALL started out as beginners at one time😎

Latest News:

  • #World-Chat on DALnet has been officially moved to Rizon IRC Network in August 17, 2019.
  • #World-Chat IRCgo has been created and linked to our channel in Rizon in December 21, 2022.

Rules[edit | edit source]

Why do we have channel rules?

Well, look at it this way: If the city, town, or country you live in had no laws, the result would be total anarchy where anything and everything goes. That is not what our channel is all about.

We are a channel where the chat doesn't stay x-rated, we don't tolerate flaming others constantly, and we do a lot of help with newbies wanting to get a handle on how to use their IRC client and learn proper IRC etiquette.

Therefore we have some channel rules, and the channel operators (the nicks you see with a @ beside them in most IRC clients) have leeway to take care of anything they believe is getting out of hand, including kicking a user out, and kicking a user as well as banning them. Listen to the ops!

A brief version of our #World-Chat Channel Rules:

1. No harassment of others

2. No advertising of anything in the channel or in private message to others; that includes other channels or IRC networks.

3. No porn

4. No cursing

5. No trolling for dates or cyber sex

6. Users who attempt to spread virii or trojans will be removed from the channel and reported to the Network Staff/Opers

7. No flooding the channel with excessive text, color codes, etc. Over five lines of text within a few seconds will wake up the channel bots and they will ban you

8. Repeating the same text can get you kicked or banned

9. Non-channel staff are NOT to act in the capacity of channel staff, that is, they are not to warn other users of perceived rules violations, or try to convince other users they are authorized to act on the behalf of channel operators, or "I op here or I used to op here, so I can tell you what to do", or any intimidation of other users, or give erroneous help to others.

10. We do -not- deal with channel issues of other channels. If you ran afoul of the rules in another channel, that is between you and that channel's staff. Each channel has its own rules, staff and ownership

The #World-Chat channel staff have the final say-so on what goes on in #World-Chat. So if you are asked to cease doing something by the channel operators, please stop it. You act nice, they will act nice in return. 😊

If you were kicked or banned from the channel for a reason not covered above, don't complain. That's just the way it is, deal with it. The channel operators never do anything without a good reason.

One thing to remember about the many IRC networks and their channels, is every channel is independent of others in it's management and rules (or lack of them). You will be amazed at how many channels have no real set of rules and are run by the whims of the @ .. that is, they'll do whatever whenever they want to.

Internet Relay Chat is quite literally the "Wild Wild West" of the Internet and always has been, so you are on a wild, sometimes fun, sometimes dangerous, sometimes amazing and challenging journey!

Our channel is only one of literally tens of thousands, and we encourage you to have fun and visit! There is a channel for everyone. No matter what your goal is on-line, you will find some like-minded people if you dig around enough on IRC.

Remember, there are many IRC networks as well. If you don't find a channel on network "x" that is to your liking, visit other IRC networks until you do. Not every network has the cool nick and channel management features (ChanServ and NickServ) that IRCgo does, some have variations of this, some have none, any nick or channel may be up for grabs.

Our goal in #World-Chat channels is to help you to meet decent users from around the world and learn about their culture in a friendly environment.
