New (AUTO)JOIN: #Lobby
We’ve setup a new autojoin channel, called #Lobby. This channel will act as an official lobby for the IRC4Fun network, allowing us to better assist and welcome new users; as well as to better effectively handle spam. We’ll be monitoring #Lobby and making adjustments (where we can) to optimize the experience.
Why use an autojoin?
Newer IRC users often have trouble finding channels, let alone official-network channels or even using commands. This autojoin channel allows us to better assist new users without overwhelming the new user with commands and instructions.
The #Lobby channel is also moderated (only @Staff can see un-identified users’ messages to the channel), allowing spam to be quickly identified and removed before it has the opportunity to hit other channels.
How can I be excluded?
If you do not like being automatically joined to #Lobby, please ask (politely) for one of the @Staff to make it stop. (They can add a channel ban for you, which will prevent you from being autojoined)
