FAQs: Company IRC Rooms

Why is the room so quiet?

Our staff has varying schedules, and sometimes those don't overlap very much. CodeMouse92__ (Jason C. McDonald) can usually be found in the rooms during the day (US Pacific Time), with other staff and community members coming and going.

Why am I being ignored?

You probably aren't! Many people leave their IRC client connected most of the time, so they might just be away from the computer. Ask your question and be patient.

What are the rules for the rooms?

All our rooms follow the Community Rules. You may also be interested into reading our guide to IRC "Netiquette".

Who are the room moderators?

CodeMouse92__ and AnnieMc are the room admins, but we have other mods as well, including all staff members. (Always behave as if the mods are watching.)

Who is LukeDMouse?

LukeDMouse is our room bot for #mousepawmedia and #mousepawmedia-design. More information about him can be found in our Network Documentation. If you don't see LukeDMouse connected, the development server is probably offline for the night.

Where are the room logs?

LukeDMouse, our chat bot, logs #mousepawmedia and #mousepawmedia-design whenever he is connected. You can find those logs on DevNet: Phabricator.
