HKW Meeting Rules
Thank you for reading
the rules. They are a work in progress, so please forgive us for
being incomplete. If everyone follows these ettiquite guidelines
while chatting, we're sure everyone will have a more enjoyable experience.
As long as there is no meeting in progress, the channel is unmoderated.
This means that anyone can talk, at any time, so please treat each
other with respect.
During a Meeting
There will be approximately 10-15 minutes before the meeting begins
in which anyone may speak in an unmoderated discussion. Once the
Commanders call the meeting to order, however, the channel will
become moderated. This means only Operators or Voiced members may
send messages to the channel. If you would like to speak, simply
message one of the commanders and you will be given Voice at the
next opportune moment.
To ask to speak, simply type the following:
/msg NICK I'd like to speak.
Making sure you replace the word NICK with the nickname of one of the Commanders.
Raising of Hands
Often during the meeting there were will be periods where anyone present may raise their
hand and wait to be recognized to speak. To do this simply type an exclamation mark:
! and then speak freely once you are called upon by the
person conducting that discussion. When you have finished speaking please type:
over so that we'll know you've finished.
After the meeting, the Commanders will remove the moderation and
you will once again be able to talk freely.
