Help? NOT!

#emech is NOT a help channel for the EnergyMech bot.

#emech is mainly a hangout for enthusiasts and developers. The channel we refer to on these pages is ofcourse located on undernet, no other lame excuse for an IRC network ;) ... altho, undernet is pretty darn lame itself.

Newbie scores:
  • Reporting an unknown bug and giving plenty of info on it: minus 100 points.
  • Asking a technically interesting and undocumented question: 0-5 points.
  • Asking "can I ask a question?": 50 points.
  • Asking a documented question: 50-100 points.
  • Asking a newbie question: 50-100 points.
  • Asking for help to install, setup, or similar: 90-100 points.
  • Messaging proton: 90-100 points.
  • Messaging proton asking for help: 99-100 points.

You start out at zero and once you reach 100 points, you get a free /kickban.

And dont forget, you can easily pick up bonus scores by asking at the wrong time!!


As we have a pretty low tolerance for lamers in our channel, I (proton) decided that making fun of the absolutely worst ones might discourage some of them and make for some extra fun for the rest of us.
