Channel Rules for - #karaoke_nest - Please read before proceeding
Welcome to IRC's friendliest, fastest-growing karaoke channel
Our community is a fun and safe place
to meet and chat with karaoke enthusiasts from all over the world and we'd like to ensure that it stays a place where everyone always feels welcome and is treated with utmost respect.
Please make yourself familiar with the following channel rules so you know what you can expect from others and what is expected of you. These rules are a guide, not a threat.
We're all friends here and we hope by agreeing to these few small guidelines that we'll remain that way for a long time to come.
Keep it clean, friendly fun and enjoy yourself - feel free to play trivia, listen to the radio, post Comments in the channel - but remember there may be young eyes about - so please avoid foul language, racist,sexist or otherwise offensive comments. RESPECT!
Always make sure your server (OmenServe) is ON when you are in the channel and that you are serving only zipped karaoke mp3+g files from an up-to-date list. (karaoke-related apps/utilities are also welcome if zipped).
R emember that this is a SHARING channel. Share back what you take and keep your list up to date. If your list is out of date, an op will very likely pm you to remind you (if other users don't tell you first!). Please update your list at least twice per month, on the 1st and the 15th.
Ask an Op for help if you need it, but please remember that all the Ops are volunteers and do please be patient.
Ops help out because they enjoy helping people - keep it enjoyable for them.
O nly authorized clones are allowed in the channel and it needs a good reason for existing other than just downloading.
If you're not sure, ask before you connect a clone.
K eep spam out of our channel - and remember that our members don't go around spamming other channels either.
We don't need to resort to spamming to attract people here.
Exercise moderation with channel ads. Your OmenServe ads should be set to run at 2700-second intervals, random ads and ctcp's should be turned off and miscellaneous channel ads should be used only if absolutely necessary.
N ever paste more than a maximum of 5 file-requests at one time and wait for all the "request accepted" messages before pasting 5 more. Never keep more than 4 full discs in anyone's queue.
E xpect to be kicked or even banned if you run any bots or scripts of any kind which are not authorized by a channel administrator. This includes AutoGet.
Sending files DCC without first getting the consent of the recipient is expressly forbidden, as is initiating a DCC chat without being invited to do so - if you want to communicate with someone, double-click on their nick and leave them a private message.
TYPING IN ALL CAPS IS LIKE SHOUTING!!! Please don't. If any of the above is unclear - pm an Op in the channel and ask for explanation.
It never hurts to ask and there's no such thing as a stupid question. Above all… Have fun in here!
