Re: #bitfighter on freenode

you can also access the bitfighter chat log bot by going to

www (dot) bit chat log (dot) tk

*no spaces, just keeping the bots at bay, since one was able to enter the skype room

Re: #bitfighter on freenode

I think he meant:

www [dot) bit chat log (dot} tk

notice the 'tk' change. It is really just a redirect to the game server server.

Doesn't work.

Doesn't work for me. Maybe all that crazy space and "(dot)" confuses people and probably was not tested to make sure it worked.

Allow me to clarify.

How would a spam bot spam the irc logs?

Re: #bitfighter on freenode

A spam bot could join IRC channel and spam there, and logging chat would log everything including any spam. That how a spam could appear in log files.

That link continues to fail for me. i guess you have to join IRC #bitfighter to see the correct link to chat logs.

Re: #bitfighter on freenode

if you don't know what is IRC, it stands for internet relay chat. To connect to IRC channel, you will need IRC client, there is lots of different free clients available to download. Then use your IRC client to connect to IRC server (irc.freenode.net) and join channel.

For Mac users, take a look at Colloquy. It's free, has a lot of great features, and very easy to use.

Speak for yourself. I can't seem to find the #bitfighter channel anywhere with Colloquy. I've designated irc.freenode.net as the requested server so far, with no results or any idea of where I place #bitfighter.

Re: #bitfighter on freenode

To set up a connection, click on "New" in the "Connections" window. Choose a Nickname and enter in "irc.freenode.net" in the Chat Server box. You do not put Bitfighter in here yet.

After doing that, you should be able to click on it in the "Connections" list, and click "Join Room". From there, put Bitfighter in the "Chat Room" text box, and press Join.

Let me know if you need any more help.

No, but people put stuff like emails and IM's and whatnot in the chat, not to mention join/part messages sometimes contain that information.

If you ever need to share what you consider sensitive information, just use the private message feature and send it directly to the person.

Can you guys possibly switch it to Libera? https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2021/05 ... -of-korea/

(I know there's currently a Discord now too, but in general I prefer FOSS solutions if possible, and I like old standards :ugeek:.)

Re: #bitfighter on freenode

I checked out libera chat when the split occured. I favor IRC, too, but no one has used it in years, favoring Discord, so I moved with the crowd.
