The official chat room for this site is #Sunnybrook-OOC. You do not need to be a site member to join - just come on in.
If you don't know how to use IRC, you can find some help here.
The Mibbit embed below is pretty straightforward for a beginner, so try it out!
We'll keep the rules simple for now. They are as follows:
1. Have fun: People here are pretty cool to new folk, we like to keep an atmosphere of friendly enjoyment. So try and remember that and be calm when approaching issues. We're all here to have a good time!
2. Don't spam: We don't want to drown anything out! This includes abusing bot functions.
3. Avoid drama: If you want to have heated interpersonal disagreements, take it to PMs. Please remember that we try and keep our game as drama free as possible.
4. Be Civil: Anything excessively derogatory, racist, sexist, homophobic, etcetera, will not be tolerated. Arguing is fine, but flaming is not fine. Please see this as our anti-harassment rule, we don't want anyone to feel bullied here or not welcome. If you think someone is harassing another player, speak up.
5. Tag NSFW links: If you link something that isn't "Safe For Work", add a note specifying "NSFW".
6. Don't drown out site discussion: All topics are currently allowed in Sunnybrook. However, people who want to talk about this RP, and/or stuff they're creating for this site, always get precedence. Please be polite and don't drown out that discussion.
We reserve the right to change or modify these rules at any time. They are not all encompassing and at the end of the day we will do everything in our power to create a fun and positive atmosphere here. If you have any concerns, please ask a staff member, and we hope you have a fun time here.
Channels: This module leads to #Sunnybrook-OOC, the out-of-character channel and landing channel for our game.
If the Mibbit client isn't working: yes, sometimes it dies on us. This is only meant to get you situated in the game, and you should use a real client as soon as possible.
