For those who don't know what the IRC is see here. Because there is no formal place to request op (operator aka admin) for the IRC channel, I am doing it here. Normally only sysops are given op, but since the opening of the rsw clan chat, the channel has been increasingly vacant. When ever I get home and on my computer, I am on IRC. There have been a few trolls, such as today, and there was only me, a few other users, and no op (like normal). The only ops I have seen in there is Chicken and Chia for about an hour maximum a night (if any). So for that reason I am requesting IRC op. I promise to only kick and ban users who actually deserve it, such as trolls and users who break the rules. On the topic of rules, I know each one. Any questions, feel free to ask :). --Scoot


Support A very helpfully user he is active in the irc a lot. Personally I don't see many ops on and another would be well needed. Dragon helm.png Team6and7 Talk Dragon boots.png 04:45, February 26, 2010 (UTC)

Support - Scoot has proven to be in the IRC channel quite a lot. Because of its general inactivity and a few issues I've had, I don't go there much anymore and me and Chia are probably the ONLY ops to enter in months. The IRC is a great communication tool and I highly encourage users to enter as it is starting to get its activity back. The channel would greatly benefit from having Scoot as an op there; he has even taught me a few things about the channel and I've been using it for years!

It's better to say the only admins without an invitation :P. I invited a few admins who came in for an hour or so and left ;). Thanks though (you too team6and7). scoot4.pngscooties 05:42, February 26, 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, but new admins don't have op, remember. Lol I don't even know how we can op you. We haven't opped people in ages. Chicken7 >talk 05:51, February 26, 2010 (UTC)
I think Caleb is trying to contact Christine or something. scoot4.pngscooties 06:16, February 26, 2010 (UTC)
Did you mean Chia? I've only just read about this. C.ChiamTalk 11:48, February 26, 2010 (UTC)
I meant Quar >.> scoot4.pngscooties 17:29, February 26, 2010 (UTC)
I've left a note on her talk page. I don't know if anyone else has the ability to modify the access list. --Quarenon  Talk 18:17, February 26, 2010 (UTC)
Long story short, I got it so Karlis now has control in the irc. scoot4.pngscooties 19:49, February 26, 2010 (UTC)
Karlis gave you op with 2 supports? >_> Chicken7 >talk 21:59, February 26, 2010 (UTC)
No, I was saying that we now have someone who can op people when needed. Christine is inactive and used to be the only one who could. scoot4.pngscooties 02:43, February 27, 2010 (UTC)

Support - Per Chicken7. There was a problem in the channel once but it took awhile to be taken care of due to the lack of moderators in the channel. --Quarenon  Talk 03:55, March 1, 2010 (UTC)

Support - The IRC has been neglected for too long. I'm glad to see an average Joe regular user stepping up to the plate to revive what one was an integral part of our wiki.--

Support - Like the war of legends irc as well ^_^. —Manyman (talk) 20:31, March 4, 2010 (UTC)

Request for closure - As very few enter the IRC, there won't be many more who could voice their opinion here, and this has been running for awhile. I'd request that you give him op rights, Azaz. Wink Cheers, Chicken7 >talk 05:20, March 5, 2010 (UTC)

Squeeking-in-at-the-last-minute-support - I enter the IRC whenever my client isn't whining at me. I have almost always seen Scoot in the channel, and he has always been helpful. I'm a regular user and I approve this message.  TLUL Talk - Contribs 05:42, March 5, 2010 (UTC) 

Comment: If Karlis isn't around, I can make the changes. Need to know the IRC nick Scoot uses though. Endasil 08:57, March 6, 2010 (UTC)

Oh and it must be NickServ authenticated. Not sure if Wikia does that for you or not. Endasil 09:11, March 6, 2010 (UTC)
User Tua_Scoot has been given permissions to OP, VOICE, and set TOPIC via chanserv. (Found Scoot way down out of alphabetical order on the cheatsheet). I didn't give automatic OP since I am against it in general (if you need op for a specific reason, then op yourself, perform the action, and deop yourself). Endasil 09:22, March 6, 2010 (UTC)

Closed - Tua Scoot has been given the IRC permissions. C.ChiamTalk 12:30, March 15, 2010 (UTC)
