From Creatures Wiki
On May 31st 2010, Laura and Spook collaborated to create Creatures Chat, a PG-rated IRC channel for the Creatures Community. Laura took the initiative to register the channel, while Spook provided the hosting for a web chat applet on his personal blog.
Currently, the web chat applet is hosted by AlphaChat. Previously it was hosted by Mibbit.
On 28th February 2013, CC Chat hosted a live Q&A session with Andrea Di Stefano and Samuel Languy about Creatures Online, from 7 PM (GMT). A transcript was published after the event.
To join #CreaturesRP, simply type /join #CreaturesRP when connected to the server, (or in #Creatures) or click the link above to join the channel via AlphaChat.
There were previously other channels, #CreaturesDev for development and #CreaturesInt for international chat, but they were dropped as of July 2012 due to a lack of activity.
Connecting to CC Chat
In order to make it more central, CC Chat is linked from these pages:
For those who wish to connect to the chat with their own IRC client, they can join #Creatures on the irc.AlphaChat.net server.
To register your username:
- /nick USERNAME
- /msg nickserv register PASSWORD EMAIL
- /msg nickserv identify PASSWORD
To log in with your username:
- /nick USERNAME (if your username is not correct)
- /msg nickserv identify PASSWORD
If you use an IRC chat client it should have options to save your log in details instead of typing the commands manually.
Registered nicknames (including your password) will expire if you do not log into chat for 30 days. Sadly, this is a default IRC setting that we cannot change, so do come back regularly.
Once you have registered a username using the method above you can add your IRC connection into a free client such as Trillian.
- Select 'Manage Accounts' in the Trillian menu
- Click the "Add a new account" button and select 'IRC'
- For the three boxes to fill in:
- 'Account name' can be: irc.wyldryde.org
- 'Nick name' is your username
- 'Server host' is: irc.wyldryde.org
- If you click the 'Settings' button, and then 'Miscellaneous'
- Where is says 'Commands (one per line)' you can paste in:
- /nick myusername
- /msg NickServ IDENTIFY mypassword
- /join #Creatures
- /join #CreaturesRP
- Then click on the 'Back' button at the top, and 'Connect'
Each time you load your Trillian IRC account after that it will log you in and open the channel(s) you wish to visit.
- !Laura is a chatty Norn.
- @Pepsi is Laura's trained Nornbot.
- @Don tends to her herd of Norndolls.

CC Chat Rules
In order to make your chatting experience as enjoyable as possible, please abide by these rules while in chat. Also, please be aware that by chatting on CC Chat, you are expected to have read and abide by AlphaChat's rules.
No Illegal Activity
Discussions concerning illegal activities including, but not limited to, the sharing of copyrighted material, files, programs, music, movies, etc. will not be tolerated. This is against WyldRyde’s T.O.S., and the community’s consensus. If you do these activities, that’s between you and the world. Please have some common sense and don’t bring it into chat.
Please Respect the Operators
Please don't question a Operator’s judgement in the public chat. Most of the time their actions are justified. If you do not agree with what an Operator has done, then please private message Laura (or the Operator involved) for an explanation.
Please Adhere to the Channel Rating
Text or other content that doesn't suit the PG rating will not be allowed. This includes posting links to such content. If you're uncertain whether something is suitable for chat, please private message one of the Operators for clarification.
No Swearing or Rudeness
Please do not use offensive words in chat. Any name calling or other disruptive behaviour is also not allowed.
No Scrolling or Shouting
Scrolling is when someone types line after line of garbage, or excessively long, wrapping lines. "Hiiiiiii!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" can also be considered scrolling. Shouting is when someone types in ALL CAPITAL LETTERS. It's okay to emphasize a word every once in a while, but not an entire sentence.
No Excessive Nickname Changing
When you log into chat with a name, try your best to keep it. Changing it in rapid succession, or to impersonate another chatter, whether as a joke, or just briefly, is not tolerated.
Never give out your real name, age, or location in chat; likewise requesting the personal details of other chatters is prohibited. IRC in general is not a safe place to discuss these things. Additionally, you should never discuss your passwords with others.
