Global Gamers

Helpful Tip:

You can easily trim your userlist by using the TRIM command. You can remove many inactive users from your channel that way, and clean up the userlist. See /msg ChanServ HELP TRIM.

New User Guide:
Please read our New User Guide for help getting started.
Glossary:
If you see a word you don't recognize, try checking our Glossary.

Note: Glossary terms are underlined in our news posts.
How You Can Help:
There are lots of ways you can help! You can give us feedback or make suggestions for improving the network, or you can help answer users' questions in #GlobalGamers. Think about events you'd like to see us hold and let us know, or just participate in events we already run.
Network Owner:
We do not consider Global Gamers to be owned by any particular person. A lot of people make equal contributions to make the network what it is.
Who's In Charge:
The Board of Directors is the highest authority on the network. Everyone on the Board of Directors is considered to be an equal authority.

Currently, the Board is composed of ButtaKnife, daemonic, and iknietjij.
Ports:
Ports 6667, 6668, 7000, 5555, and 55555 are all open for normal clients to use. SSL connections can use ports 6660 and 47000.

Bot connections:
If you have a trivia bot or other useful bot that needs to send more text at a time, first make sure your bot has its own NickServ account that you do not use yourself. Then join #GlobalGamers and ask a staff member to apply a Bot flag to your bot's NickServ account. That flag will allow your bot to connect to any Global Gamers server and have higher limits than a normal user.
Connection trusts:
We limit the number of simultaneous connections a single IP can have to Global Gamers. However, if you're living in a house with other gamers or you're at a LAN party where everyone is on the same IP, yes, you can still get on Global Gamers. Before everyone logs on, please visit us in #GlobalGamers and request a trust. That will allow more users to connect from the same IP without being automatically banned for clones.
Login on Connect:
Please visit our Login on Connect guide to learn more about this feature.
General safety tips:
First and foremost, never click on any links from people you do not trust, never accept downloads from strangers, and never type a suspicious line of text that someone else asks you to do. Also, for general safety online, never share your personal information with anyone, and do not enter your real name or e-mail address into your IRC client.
To protect your IP:
You should register a NickServ account and then set it to automatically apply your fakehost when you auth. That fakehost will hide your hostmask, making it more difficult for strangers on IRC to see where you are connecting from.

We also suggest using a script to randomize your nick and not joining any channels before you auth, so it gives you a little more protection before services take over. Check our available scripts here.
Reporting problems:
Harassment or threats should be reported to your local law enforcement. You should report someone to a staff member in #GlobalGamers if the individual is sending out a virus or malicious link, spamming, bypassing channel bans, bypassing ignores, or similar.
Password security:
No, a Global Gamers staff member will never ask for your NickServ password. We don't need it. We can do everything we need to do without ever knowing what your password is.
Password security:
No, Global Gamers staff members cannot see your password. All passwords are stored in an encrypted format.
SSL:
An SSL ("Secure Sockets Layer") connection to IRC encrypts the data between your computer and the IRC server. Any text you send, including your account password and conversations, will be encrypted until received by one of our servers.

You probably shouldn't be sending anything over IRC that's important enough to need encryption, but the option is there if you want it.
Clan Services Help:
Identifying a staff member:
Staff members who are authed to their NickServ accounts will show up in the network staff list, available by typing:
/cs STAFF

If someone does not appear in that list, do not believe them if they say they are a staff member. Most staff members also have a fakehost that reads [account].staff.globalgamers.net
Age of staff members:
Most staff members on Global Gamers are in their 20s.
Countries:
We have staff members from Australia, Germany, the Netherlands, Great Britain, Canada, and the United States.
Languages:
Everyone on staff speaks some form of English, but many of our staff members also speak German, French, and Dutch.
S2 symbol:
Two of the staff members on Global Gamers are married, and they use "S2" as a heart symbol. Other staff members mimic the S2 to poke fun at them.
Definition of iknietjij:
As far as we can tell, "iknietjij" is Dutch for "I'm not you."

How to register a channel:
Channel registrations on Global Gamers are open to all users with a registered NickServ account, subject to our Channel Registration Guidelines. Simply join the channel you want to register and type,
/cs REGISTER #your_channel_of_choice
How accounts unregister:
Yes. You can unregister your own account, or an account will unregister if it isn't used for 90 days.
How to set vacation status:
You can set your account to "Vacation" status, which will prevent it from expiring before you auth again. To do so, type /ns VACATION while authed to your account.
Using the Perform feature:
If you're using mIRC, visit our Perform guide.
Accounts versus nicknames:
Absolutely. For example, your normal nickname might be "John," but your account name could be "JohnDoe."
Using ADDMASK:
After you have authed to your account using the AUTHCOOKIE command, you can add your current hostmask to your account permanently, and then you won't have to AUTHCOOKIE again unless your hostmask changes. Just type /ns ADDMASK after you auth to your account.
Changing your password:
/ns PASS your_current_password your_new_password
Using other nicknames:
Yes. You can auth to your account no matter what nick you are using.
Authing to another account:
If you have already authed to an account, you will need to disconnect from the network before you can auth to a different account.
Changing your account name:
Yes, but you will need to speak to a staff member in #GlobalGamers so we can change your account name.
Enabling quotes:
The quote system is disabled by default. To enable the quote system for your channel, type /cs QSET #yourchannel ENABLED ON with your channel name instead of #yourchannel.
Disabling quotes:
To disable the quote system in your channel, type /cs QSET #yourchannel ENABLED OFF with your channel name instead of #yourchannel.
How to use the quote system:
Please visit our Quote Services guide for information about using the network-wide quote system.
Number of quotes:
Currently, each channel is allowed to keep 100 quotes in the database.
The HelpServ service:
HelpServ is a service that keeps a list of help requests that haven't been addressed. It alerts staff members when a user has submitted a question, and it organizes requests by indicating which staff member is assigned to a particular request.
How to use HelpServ:
Simply type /hs Your request here to have your request put in the queue.

Note: You do not have to be in #GlobalGamers in order to send a help request through HelpServ.
The MemoServ Service:
MemoServ is a service that allows you to send a note to a user even if that user isn't online. As soon as that user logs in to their NickServ account, MemoServ will tell him or her that a message is waiting to be read.
How to use MemoServ:
Please visit our MemoServ guide for help on using MemoServ.
Unregistering channels:
You can unregister a channel that you own, or a channel will be unregistered automatically if no one with at least Manager access (300 access or higher) visits the channel for 30 days.

Note: Normal Ops are only level 200, so a channel might still have ops but not meet the criteria for staying registered.
Number of channels:
You can register 10 channels without staff intervention. If you require more than 10 channels, please contact a staff member.
Adding owners:
Channels can only have one owner, with the exception of channels that were registered before we put this policy in place. You can add Co-owners who have access to all of the same commands as an Owner, except they cannot remove the Owner.
Auto-voicing everyone:
Everything is done by access levels on Global Gamers, so if you want to auto-voice everyone, you have to set the access level that's required to be voiced down to 0. That means someone doesn't have to have any access to the channel in order to get voiced. To do that, type:
/cs SET #yourchannel GIVEVOICE 0 with your channel name instead of #yourchannel.

Note: As a shortcut, you can also type:
/cs #yourchannel AUTOVOICEALL
Clan database:
Visit our Clan Services guide to see how you can configure your clan channel. The information in the CLANSET command will be displayed in our Clan Database unless you toggle the HIDDEN command to ON (which hides your channel from the database).
Challenges:
If your channel is configured for our channel clan services (see our Clan Services guide for more information), you can enable seeing challenges by typing:
/cs CLANSET #yourchannel game CHALLENGE on with your channel name instead of #yourchannel and the game ID instead of game.
Not appearing in the Clan Database:
To hide your clan from the Clan Database, type:
/cs CLANSET #yourchannel HIDDEN ON with your channel name instead of #yourchannel.
Disabling challenges:
To stop receiving challenges from other clans, type:
/cs CLANSET #yourchannel game CHALLENGE OFF with your channel name instead of #yourchannel and the game ID instead of game.
