Some useful irc.bungie.org channels
#tgo - HIH's sister site
#hbo - The official halo.bungie.org channel. Odd happenings seem to go on in here

Name Prefixes (in order of power - low/high)
No Prefix - Normal user. Has the ability to talk (and use basic IRC commands)
+ - Voice. Means user can talk when the channel is muted (meaning no one other lower than Voice can talk) (brown dot in X-Chat)
% - HalfOp. Means user can kick anyone lower than or equal to themself. Also has the ability to ban users and set some channel modes (blue dot in X-Chat)
@ - Op. Means the user has the ability to kick, ban, and set channel modes (more than HalfOp) (green dot in X-Chat)
& - Admin. Means the user can kick, ban, and set channel modes (more than Op) (red dot in X-Chat)
~ - Owner. Means this user has complete control over the channel. They can do basically anything they want to the channel. (purple dot in X-Chat)

Channel Modes
+A - Only allows channel administrators into the channel
+a - Hides Operators from view in the user list
+c - Blocks any color from being used in the channel
+f - Flood control. Means people can only post a set number of lines in a set time frame, or they are kicked from the channel
+G - Blocks all swear words from the channel.
+m - Mutes the channel. Only users that have Voice or higher are able to talk in the channel
+N - Disables users' ability to change nicknames. This is only put in place if people are changing their nicknames too much
+n - Disables users to talk in a channel if they are not currently part of the channel. Always on in #HIH
+p - Makes the channel private. You will never know it is there unless you are in it
+R - Makes the channel so only people who have registered their nicknames with the IRC can join the channel
+S - Takes away all of the color from the text in the channel
+t - Makes it so that only Operators and above can set the topic in the channel
+x - Blocks any messages that contain color from showing up

Not all of these channel modes are on #HIH, and some may never be, but it is possible you may come across them eventually.

User modes
+a - Makes the user a channel admin
+b - Bans the user from the channel (none of what they write will appear on the screen, and once they are out of the channel, they can't get back in until they are unbanned
+h - Makes the user a HalfOp
+o - Makes the user a channel operator
+q - Makes the user the channel owner
+v - Makes the user have Voice

Some other useful tips
Tab key - To reduce the time it takes you to type a message, if you are putting a user's name in a message, type the first letter of it and then hit the Tab key. This will bring up the first user with that letter for their name. To cycle through users that share that letter, keep hitting the Tab key
Up arrow - Only works on certain clients. Brings up the last thing you sent to the channel. Keep hitting it to cycle through your previous messages
Netiquette - Use common netiquette on the IRC. Examples include not typing in all caps, being polite, and the usual. A definition to help you gain a better understanding of netiquette can be found here

I think that's all for now, folks. Hope to see you on the IRC soon! Very Happy

Also, if you have any comments, questions, or suggestions, feel free to PM me, or email me at Kron0006@hotmail.com. I'd be happy to help you out! Also, if you want a guide for another IRC client, I'd be happy to write one up for you. If you have one to submit to the thread, just PM it to me here! Very Happy

Also, if you want me to walk you through the process personally, feel free to contact me via PM or other.


UPDATED: If you'd like me to include a tip of yours for the IRC, just tell me it via any of the above sources.

Special thanks for the help:
  • KP
  • esc
  • bassist3825
  • goatrope
  • Everyone else who has helped!

Jeez, I hope this stops people from asking endlessly how to get on to the channel. Very Happy

Ok, can't stress this enough...

Do. Not. Impersonate.

If you are found to be impersonating, you will be a) banned from the channel, or b) banned from the server. Some of the new people joining have decided to impersonate certain people, and have since been banned. Just don't do it. Also, the server rules are a good read. I suggest you read them. If for some reason you can't view them on your client, I'll post them below.

Server Rules
This is a privately owned and operated network, therefore we reserve the right to deny service at any time without reason. Not that we're like that, or anything.

1. Any conversation or acts that would cause you to incur civil or criminal liability will not be tolerated on this network.

2. If it is found that you are commiting illegal acts or planning to do so, you may be disconnected, banned and/or reported to the proper authorities at the discretion of the operators. NO. WAREZ. HERE.

3. Any users causing a disruption will be punished at the discretion of the opers.

4. By connecting to this network, you agree with all the network terms, the way of the jedi, and more importantly the way of Bungie.org. The IBO IRC network waives all liability for civil or criminal action.

5. No shirt, no shoes, no pants required.

6. No linking to materials which may be considered offensive, once again at discretion of the server opers and/or channel operators. Arguing the point is futile.

7. Use common sense.

8. Do not socially engineer other users of this network to close their client, part a channel, disconnect from this server, or otherwise trick them into making their client do something that they probably would not want it to do. You would think this would fall under the common sense rule, but apparently not.

9. Do not impersonate users of this network, Bungie employees or well-known community members.

10. Do not evade a channel ban. This could result in a server ban.

11. Stop touching yourself there.

12. We employ the BOPM open proxy detection device on our network. Our BOPM bot (LopezJr) will automatically check upon your connection to verify that you aren't using an open or insecure proxy. If you are k:lined by LopezJr for an insecure proxy, and think it was wrong in doing so (although the software is never wrong, so your attempt is futile), please email kp@bungie.org to resolve your issue. What does that mean, you might ask?

WE'RE IN UR PORTS, KILLIN' UR DUEDS!

If you don't like it, the disconnect button is only a click away.

13. We are not Bungie Studios. We're barely bungie.org.

People who control you:
KP - Server Owner. Always listen to him. Also goes by KPismo and KevinPaul as well as others.
SanchezTheLlama - Co-server owner. Listen to him too.
Lucifer7 - Net Admin. He can do what he wants to you, so listen to him too. Also goes by zasx/grape
goatrope - Net Admin. Listen to him.
c0ld net admin, hardly talks in #hih but if he does, dont argue.

Any ops or half-ops (Note: On the #hih channel, forum moderators are ops.)

Edit by GXM: A note of caution, if you act like an idiot in #hih supernostro will find where you live and teach you a lesson. Last time it happened he brought the whip with him, you dont want to know how it ended. That is all.
New edit: This thread is not for discussion of those who have been to the #hih channel or irc.bungie.org server. If you have been banned from the channel, do not post your query or defense here, for it will simply be deleted. If you are wondering why you were banned, please contact the mod or admin who banned you via forum pm, or IRC pm. The command to start a private conversation through the IRC is /query [nick of individual you want to speak to here]. This is simply a thread of showing those who don't know about the IRC, and how to get involved. I am constantly deleting replies in this thread that have no business in it. So, if you notice that your post here was deleted, please, do not post it again, or I will personally ban you from the #hih channel. Feel free to ask questions regarding rules and regulations of the IBO Server or specifically the #hih channel. If your having problems connecting to the server, feel free to leave a note and make a thread in the Technical Support Forum. Thats all for now.
-GXM

Please guys, no more saying "Nice work Kron" etc, this isnt my work, its Behemoth's compliment him, not me. He wrote it up not i. Thank you.

Frequently visited IRC channels

Well guys, I know there are many many other IRC Channels out there, but people just don't know about them, that is why I have takin the time to create this post.

Basically, I think this is cool because you can now see where a lot of your friends and HIH members hang out. There are smaller channels besides the HIH one, and the HBO one that people just don't know about, and I think it would be cool to get the word out about each and every one of them.

The Channel Visited KEY:

-If the channel is high-lighted in yellow, that means it is very active.
-If the channel is high-lighted in red, that means the channel is moderatly visited.
-If the channel is high-lighted in blue, that means we know very little about this channel, and it is not used that offten.
-And finally, if the channel is purple, that would be the channel that you can visit after you do something stupid in another channel, and got banned for it.

-#hih - This is the place where you will find all of the High Impact Halo members, and you can disucuss anything you like, as long as it doesn't break any rules!

If you have any channel to add, please post them, and then I will add it to the list. Thank you.

~Maker

Edit by GXM: For all those wondering, you can also get a full list of all registered channels on the IBO server by using the command /list. To my knowledge, the list of channels appears on the IBO Server box that you first see when connecting to irc.bungie.org, not the channel you perform the command in.
