Some network problem
They were rebuilding the network, so that's why Elfpack was down for some 10 hours.

As emailing only works sometimes (for unknown reasons), we have removed the requirement to confirm the email address when you register.
I hope this will make it easier to register.

Elfpack Chat Help and Questions Press <Show Content> to see information.
Q) What is an "OP"?
General Information and Useful Commands
A) An OP is a chat operator; it means they are a Moderator in the chat.
Q) I sometimes see people who are not listed as one of the Chat Bosses with OP-status, why is that?
A) Sometimes, a Chat Boss may decide to give another highly-trusted member a temporary OP status that lasts until they log out. This is generally due to the assigned chat bosses not being there to moderate things.
Q) I'd like to be a Chat Boss, how do I become one?
A) Well, before even asking this question you should make sure you're active and talkative in the chat. The current Chat Bosses will contact members they feel would make good new bosses, should their be a need for them.
Q) I don't know how to use this chat, I'm completely confused.
A) You just type your username into the chat-box widget located above. For a list of commands you can use in the chat, keep reading on.
Q) I have a question not on this list!
A) You can always ask in the "to the crew" forum. ;)
Command What it does
/me <action> Performs an actions. IE: Stephen dances.
/nick <newnickname> Changes your nickname into the entered nickname.
/ignore <nickname> Ignores all messages from that nickname.
/unignore <nickname> Removed an ignore from a nickname.
/query <nickname> Sends a private message to that nickname.
/whois <nickname> Looks up information about nickname.
/join <#channel name> Opens another channel in a different tab. (IE: /join #Elftown)
/clear Clears the chat box.
/away <message> Displays an away message when someone uses the "/whois" command on you.
Don't be an asshole!
Don't flood the channel with spam, don't harass people, don't try to get everyone to have sex with you, etc. Doing so will get you kicked/banned.
Try to write correctly
You don't need to use perfect English, but no one feels like trying to decode your typing. Some typo's and grammar messups are OK, but at least try to type normal text.
Listen to and respect the mods!
What they say is final. In the chat, the mods are just like the Elfpack Guards.
If someone is being an asshole
If there's no mod on and someone is being an asshole, do the following:
1) Type "/whois <harasser's nick>"
2) Find the "hostmark" of the harasser. (It should look like "24-180-208-36", just with different numbers)
3) Screenshot what the harasser is doing and the harasser's hostmark. Send them to [Stephen] in a PM.
4) Type /ignore <harasser's nickname>
