Elliquiy’s Official IRC Channels
#Elliquiy is the “general” channel, or main room. It is the first thing a new Elliquiy member sees of IRC if they are not a regular IRC user. This is an 18+ room with public access. That means anyone coming in through IRC in general will see 18+ and know that the nature of Elliquiy is of an adult member. Please keep interactions here family friendly as there is no filter on this room and anyone can get in (even underage folks browsing Sorcery.net).
Yes, we are an “adult” site. No, we do not want the thunder of any number of deities on our heads because an underage visitor saw something of the “adult” rating.
Regarding images and links: NSFW in this room cannot contain anything that means porn. Things of a gory nature (i.e., things you would cover the eyes of a child around but are not porn) follow this guideline.
#ElliquiyLounge is the “adult” room of the Elliquiy channels on IRC. Pretty much everything kinkwise goes here, from vanilla to extreme.
Regarding images and links: It is polite to mark links with NSFW for those who are browsing IRC from their work environment, but it is pretty much safe to say everything in #ElliquiyLounge could very well be NSFW by default.
#Ellisystems is the gaming discussion room (for systems like AD&D, Exalted, Forgotten Realms, GURPS, etc.). Generally a room of discussion about what systems are and how to navigate them, it can also be used to schedule gaming nights by permission of the ops. There is an optional dice roller administered by Tsenta in the Systems room for D&D rolls, with flood protection in place.
#Ellirants is a channel that allows members to get the grumblies off their chests and is moderated.
Note: If the op on duty notices the rant is less a rant and more something that needs to be handled by an op or staff (boundaries breached, safety of members, disregarding Elliquiy’s rules, etc.), the ranter will be asked to go into a private message with the op to find an amenable solution to the problem.
Case Study 1: Ranter comes into #Ellirants and complains bitterly that partner in the forum isn’t writing quickly enough for their taste (leaving out identifiable details that would allow readers to discern who it is), or that their best friend’s dog ate their kid’s homework. (This is a rant.)
Case Study 2: Ranter comes into #Ellirants and complains bitterly that partner in forum isn't writing quickly enough, but keeps PMing them for details about their RL whereabouts despite messages by the ranter to stop. Ranter complains partner is “creeping [them] out” and wishes they would stop. (This is a violation of Elliquiy’s rules and is also stalking IRL. The op would take the ranter into a PM and instruct them to send logs of the event to a staff member in the forum, or tell them in the rant channel that staff needs to be notified.)
