Chat Room?

Noted. I’ll pass the word along, but we have some crucial bugs to squash before spending time adding chat.

Do any of you guys use IRC? We had a #knowyourmeme channel on Freenode for a while that I just re-opened… "irc://":irc://

Dec 02, 2009 at 03:50PM EST

You need an IRC client. You can use mIRC, or Colloquy, or XChat. mIRC is for Windows, Colloquy is for Mac OS X, and XChat is for Windows and Linux.

Just download and install the appropriate program, click the link, and Firefox will tell ask you if you want to use it, click on the program you have, then you’ll get taken right to the IRC channel. Not complicated at all.

I like Proximizer. Finding an open proxy that FreeNodes will accept is hard, though.
I just use my own IP when using IRCs.

mIRC is making me pay, I just checked, I dont have any money for this. is there any other recommendations?

Dec 02, 2009 at 11:09PM EST

I’ll look, if it makes me pay Im just gonna go with Chatzilla addon for FF

Dec 02, 2009 at 11:14PM EST

Its probably better to embed the IRC chatroom on the website.

Is that possible?

Dec 03, 2009 at 01:57AM EST

Testing out some adminnery here…

EDIT: no dice. Put the embed here for the time being =>

EDIT2: apparently Freenode blocked Mibbit… there’s a web client here: -- join the #knowyourmeme channel

mIRC is free, you just have to wait a little before the “connect” button comes to life. You don’t have to pay anything.
That’s what I’m using and I reached the Irc channel without any problems.

when i try to open the irc it gives me this:

you say i need to download something to open it but im on my school’s computer so i cant XP

Dec 03, 2009 at 11:50AM EST

try this:

for “channels” type “#knowyourmeme”

Dec 03, 2009 at 11:58AM EST

@Tomberry hey thanks, @Shadowfury I was working with the ResHack yesterday, it turns out I have to actually extract the installer and go in and edit the mIRC.exe it’s self not the setup file, the only problem i face is utter corruption of the setup file and not being able to uninstall it.

Binary, I don’t think anyone cares to go to an extra effort to understand you when you’re speaking english underneath the binary.

Dec 04, 2009 at 12:05AM EST

He’s actually referring to that fact, Chris:

im not too good with chat rooms people get annoyed with me :(

It’s your own fault. If you’d just use English like the rest of us, Emerelds wouldn’t have to exploit your posts for comedic effect.

@People who don’t care to translate:
Binary: “it’s not like i choose to do this im cursed you see”
“dont poke fun it’s not nice”

Dec 04, 2009 at 12:19AM EST

Reminds me of what Jostin said about his username being in normal writing.

Dec 04, 2009 at 12:26AM EST

That’s justsad, Redspear banned again? I guess he isn’t coming back this time.

Dec 04, 2009 at 12:43AM EST

@ RG

Whatchu talkin’ ‘bout, son? He’s pretty much still an active user. He’s just been labeled for the rest of his cyber-life as The Ultimate KYM Troll seeing as he’s the longest lasting one.

Dec 04, 2009 at 12:46AM EST

Oh no, I haven’t banned him. You see, tomorrow, there will be a new system in place that will allow users to rate eachother’s karma. It’s going to be one of the best new features around. Once a user’s karma level drops to a certain point, then we know that some sort of further action ought to be taken.

Redspear, how are you feeling about your karma?

Dec 04, 2009 at 12:51AM EST

Wow! It seems that KYM has a lot in store for it tomorrow. I can’t wait.


Dec 04, 2009 at 12:54AM EST

Please, don’t feel so bad.
At least, he made some good meme entries…

Dec 04, 2009 at 12:54AM EST

@ Tomberry

That is true. I can’t disagree with that fact. Oh well, we’ll what we’ll see tomorrow in terms of how the users feel about different users. This is going to be done anonymously, right?

Dec 04, 2009 at 12:57AM EST

Yeah, we can’t say he didn’t contribute anything. But it would have been nice if there had been less trolling and more contributing on his part.

Dec 04, 2009 at 12:58AM EST

Every one of his entries has been terrible. I have done entire rewrites on almost everything he’s ever submitted, as I have done for most poorly written meme entries, especially since he’s so vocal about demanding help.

Dec 04, 2009 at 01:28AM EST

I have that as my wallpaper on my computer in Business Law class.

Dec 04, 2009 at 01:30AM EST

@Chris that was all you? I thought Redspear actually made some decent entries…

Dec 04, 2009 at 01:35AM EST

Most of you who have had meme submissions confirmed are familiar with the fact that we admins will edit your entries, correct? When an article is in Submissions and is being researched, that means what it says. It is literally waiting in queue for Admins to turn them into an article that provides as many verifiable facts about the meme as we can find about it.

Take a look at the entries of his that I haven’t gotten to yet.

On top of that, there have been times that I’ve just finished editing one of his entries, and he sends me a message saying “I just fixed this up.”

I’ve banned him before, and other admins had me unban him since he sent us email after email talking about how he loves the site so much and he promises he’ll never do it again etc etc etc.

I will not be updating anything else that Redspear submits.
