Charloft live chats! Come chat with us!

We're pleased to announce the grand opening of Charloft chatrooms on IRC! Rooms are open 24/7 , so drop in and hang out whenever you're online. We've provided a handy chat applet for those who aren't IRC savvy, or use your favorite IRC client to connect to Darkmyst (server irc.darkmyst.org ).

The rooms are as follows:

#the_loft - This is the out of character chat hub for all Lab Arc Designs ventures - drop in here to hang out, shoot the breeze, ask questions, etc. At least 2-4 of the mods for Charloft can likely be found in here at any given time.

#charloft - This is the in character chatroom. This is a place where your characters can talk to each other, hang out and just be mellow. The default setting is an inter-dimensional space called The Charloft, a converted barn turned cafe and hangout. Downstairs, a large cafe with books for reading, food and drinks. Upstairs, couches and chairs for lounging, arcade machines and games. Other locations may be used at player's discretion - special events may be hosted here from time to time. Just drop a character in, hang out with the other characters there and enjoy.

#nanoloft - This is our NaNoWriMo chatroom. Connect and commiserate with other NaNo participants, get advice and plot inspirations, or just share your current word count or favorite plot bunny.

Instructions for Java Chat:
1. Go to http://labarc.com/CharLoft/ - you might have to give permission for the java applet to run first, but it should automatically connect you to all three rooms.

2. Change your nickname to your desired name by typing /nick yournamehere in the chat box. (Note, if your nickname is already taken or registered to someone else, you may have to alter this slightly and try again.)

3. Click between the three rooms (#the_loft, #charloft, #nanoloft) by selecting their names in the blue bar below the chat. Yes, you can be in three places at once! Shiny.

4. To emote, type /me followed by an action. /me stuffs a crazed weasel in her pocket , for example.

More instructional goodness can be found on the chat itself - or leave a comment here and someone will assist you. Chat applet design and setup for the IRC channels is thanks to my hubby Aus (wizardofaus) our techie mod.

Here's hoping we'll see folks in chat - come on down and meet your fellow Charlofters.

mmm... out of curiosity for those of us who are either relatively irc savvy or cannot run the applet (i can access the applet but not do anything on linux because apparently i don't have enough java support) are there any ports besides the default (6667) that work -_-; 6667 is blocked from my computer when i'm not at home.

Re: -The Mundane Query-
You know, we probably should set something like that up. We haven't as yet, but I'll see what we can do!

Re: -The Mundane Query-
Ooh, did the AIM version ever happen?

(I'm a bit late to the party—I only joined a few weeks ago.)

Is the Darkmyst IRC network down? I can't seem to connect to any of my rooms on it...
Jul. 28th, 2009 06:34 pm (UTC)
It connected for me just now.

... Weird. All day I haven't been able to get onto any of my Darkmyst channels...

kryten.ga.us.darkmyst.org is the server I'm connected through right now

I tried using irc.darkmyst.org and then tried using that one, and it still doesn't work. I keep getting disconnected before I can get into a room. In fact, the little symbol that says I'm connected doesn't show up at all. I've tried on multiple IRC clients, the web chat doesn't work for me, and I can't even get to Darkmyst's website.

I have no idea what's going on.
