Here at Halo Fanon, we have two main chat systems for our users to easily interact with each other outside of talk page messages and forum/blog posts: Discord or the Internet Relay Chat (IRC). These act as the central hubs of communication for users on this site. Even on what seems like slow days on the site with little to no edits, there will almost certainly be one or two users available.

The majority of non-crucial article discussion, debates on the Haloverse and general conversation occurs there too. While the Halo Fanon Wiki has had a great many users come and go over the years, it's a generally accepted fact that people who become Irk regulars generally become better editors and go far on the site.

Discord

A more recent addition to our site, Halo Fanon's Discord app is easily accessible via the connect option seen on our site's sidebar on many pages, or via this link. There are multiple channels available for users and a voice chat option as well, making it useful for organising online gaming sessions between users.

Discord Channels

Multiple channels have been provided on our Discord chat for site members to use:

  • #irk_pub - The general chat.
  • #announcements - Important site news and updates.
  • #halo-lore - For discussing the Haloverse.
  • #rp-planning - For organizing and coordinating RPs.
  • #shitposting-and-spam - Messing around, spamming, and links.
  • #story_brainstorming - Story ideas or writing assistance. Weekly prompts will also be pinned here regularly.
  • #vroom-vroom - Because some of us won't stop talking about cars, we made a channel for it so the others wouldn't get filled with it

IRC

The Halo Fanon IRC channel, better known as The Irk, was our site's most prominent method of communication until Discord came along and was been a source of most conversation on Halo Fanon for many years. It is now primarily used to conduct RP's, though general discussion still occurs there.

Follow the instructions below to learn how to access our IRC channel.

Chat Rules

Please follow these while on the #Halo-Fanon IRC Channel or Discord. Breaking rules will be dealt with at the current Op's discretion.

  1. No banning/removing/autoremoving/muting users for no reason .
  2. Do not post clearly NSFW material in the main chat. Our Discord does have a #shitposting-links channel for anything you'd rather not post in the main chat, but try to keep it clean nonetheless.
  3. Keep discussions about politics to a bare minimum, unless it has something to do with the topic at hand. Take political arguments to PM so others don't have to suffer through them.
  4. Do not remove autoremovals or bans without discussion unless someone has autoremoved or banned a channel operator.
  5. Assume good faith.
  6. Permission is not required in order to archive, i.e. "quoting", conversations in public channels. It is, however, required in personal/private channels/messages.
  7. No cursing to be used offensively, i.e. personal attacks. Keep it civil and mature.
  8. No spamming, flooding, mass posting etc. Use pastebin or a wiki page to post logs longer than five lines.
