I’d like to invite you all to the official inofficial Mortal Online IRC channel located on Quakenet.
Quakenet is a big and established gaming network that has been around for decades. We also already have some people from the MO Community around having lively discussions and even Henrik joins in once in a while. This is your chance to change things up and be part of the crowd filling the community-driven channel.
The channel will be maintained by the community, this means for now I will be moderating it. I’ve been an active member of the Mortal Online community since April of 2008 and I’ve also been an official IRC moderator in the dawn of Mortal Online back on privnet from September of 2008 up to the Mortal Online open beta back in 2010.
Other users can prove themselves by means of activity and the way they conduct themselves and be promoted to moderators. Common sense rules and Mortal Online rules apply, but they will be enforced by the community and not some forum moderators who hardly know what IRC is and what’s actually going on. Aside from that everyone is welcome and free discussions and conversations are encouraged.
Trade is also welcome and if need be additional channels for specific means can be opened. I am looking forward to help with and promote events and other community activities in there.
The official IRC channel has been dying off because of server issues and lack of general activity and I’d like to revive direct community interaction in an open and “friendly” environment. I’ve also talked to Star Vault and if we get enough activity they will come by there as well.
IRC is still the best way to hold direct real-time conversations with a bigger group and community and still keep track of what has been said in the past.
See you over there!
