how do you turn on chat history?

2018-01-06 15:55:17 UTC  

rightclick, edit channels, permissions

2018-01-06 15:55:30 UTC  

@Timcast you need to give people permissions

2018-01-06 15:55:42 UTC  

then click on the role you want to adjust (everyone in this case) or make a new role

2018-01-06 15:56:46 UTC  

can't see any of the cht

2018-01-06 15:57:38 UTC  

chat history should be the 11th permission on the list

2018-01-06 15:57:48 UTC  

Much better icon

2018-01-06 15:59:03 UTC  

@Timcast now the newsroom chathistory is visible

2018-01-06 16:00:29 UTC  

I can't find any global setting, so might have to set permission to each individual channel.

2018-01-06 16:01:03 UTC  

yes every individual channel

2018-01-06 16:02:27 UTC  

you can create a *category* in which the channels are placed, then you can bulk edit the category settings for multiple channels at once tho

2018-01-06 16:03:20 UTC  

it makes sense to use one channel with invisible history for newcomers if you plan on keeping the invitelink public, to prevent misdeeds by trolls. and then use some kind of roles for new participants that check out so they can see and interact with the other channels. just a suggestion πŸ˜ƒ

2018-01-06 16:06:33 UTC  

Yes, that's a very good idea. It's how I've got my own server set up - the invite link sends yo to #lobby, but that's the only thing you can see until you're assigned a role.

2018-01-06 16:07:17 UTC  

as a precaution. you need mods for it, or there are bot solutions which i am not familiar with.

2018-01-06 16:08:51 UTC  

Yeah, the bot solutions are nice, but they're usually pretty complicated to set up

2018-01-06 16:09:55 UTC  

I'm also partial to the IRC role system of Everyone < Voice < Halfop < Op(erator) < Admin

2018-01-06 16:10:03 UTC  

keeps things simple for roles

2018-01-06 16:11:34 UTC  

isnt there some term for *the followers of tim pool* - acolytes of pool, pooligans... something? πŸ˜‰

2018-01-06 16:11:46 UTC  

None that I'm aware of

2018-01-06 16:11:59 UTC  

me neither hehe

2018-01-06 16:25:02 UTC  

I think Pooligans has a better ring to it

2018-01-06 16:25:17 UTC  

sweet and tender pooligans

2018-01-06 16:25:35 UTC  

Could maybe do Timcasters

2018-01-06 16:25:56 UTC  

dunno, that may be too close to Timcast

2018-01-06 16:26:03 UTC  

could cause confusion

2018-01-06 16:26:14 UTC  

No ghey clan tags plox. πŸ˜›

2018-01-06 16:26:33 UTC  

Timcasters, s1ck

2018-01-06 16:31:00 UTC  

yea but pooligan sounds like a portmanteau of poo and hooligan

2018-01-06 16:31:32 UTC  

It could also be a portmanteau of pool and hooligan, which is how I read it until you said that

2018-01-06 16:32:48 UTC  

well the poo-part IS unfortunate, didnt catch that πŸ˜‰

2018-01-06 16:33:33 UTC  

how about "warriors of the frozen wastes"

2018-01-06 16:34:13 UTC  

:-/ It's a tad long...

2018-01-06 16:34:41 UTC  

@Timcast What's the purpose of this server? Just a hub for discussions? No image boards or?

2018-01-06 16:35:12 UTC  

news discussion stories and general conversation
