|The integrated chat client is designed to mimic clasic IRC clients in its
basic functionality, so people can get productive with it right away. It lacks
some advanced features found in most IRC Clients (mostly scripting and configurability).
As this is not primarily designed as a Chat program.
Still there are many features to make the chat enjoyable:
Also, some concepts differ from the IRC protocol and there are some new concepts. In Filetopia channels are more persistent (they are not destroyed as soon as all users leave a channel). so are channel modes and channel operators. The nicks are also more persistent, it is not as easy to change nicks as it is in IRC. The reason we did it this way is to avoid in part some of the problems found in IRC: Channel take-overs, wars, etc. Filetopia is aimed to be completely anonymous, but some responsability of what we do while online is needed for a peaceful and rewarding stay.
The channel creator is the only owner of the channel, and thus, cannot be kicked, banned or de-oped. The Channel owner can be recognized with a # in front of his nick.
