What is TheSpawn.net?
TheSpawn.net was originally conceived as a gathering place for any/all
gamers to meet and interact with gamers from other more game/server-specific
"sub"-communities. We began as a few friends who had met through the
Minecraft community, but we were all "part" of different server-specific
communities (i.e. Discovr, Minecrap, etc.) and we wanted a place where we
could all hang out which wasn't specifically for people in our respective
servers. We initially created an IRC channel simply to have a place where
we could congregate and meet people from other parts of the general gaming
community. Once we did that, we started to see potential for TheSpawn.net
to become more than just an IRC channel where people could talk, and we
started having gaming events now and then. When we started to quickly
grow, we decided it would be nice to have the ability to voice-chat with
other people in TheSpawn, so we also set up a mumble server, and a
website linking to our IRC channel and mumble server addresses.
Since its inception, TheSpawn.net has become a community all its own,
without any real push from any of us to become anything other than what
it has naturally evolved into. We are very glad that other people feel
about TheSpawn the way we do, and continue to make it the amazing place
To join our IRC channel or mumble server, visit our web "portal" by
clicking on the 'chat' link at the bottom of the page.
TheSpawn.net hosts an IRC channel on the QuakeNet server, #spawn.
If you haven't been there and are unsure how to access it, use one of
the following two methods to connect:
-Visit this http://webchat.quakenet.org/?channels=spawn and connect
using the web interface, or..
-Download and install an IRC client onto your computer (such as
Hexchat for Windows/Linux or
LimeChat for Mac OS) and connect
to the server irc.quakenet.org, with the port number 6667, and type
"/join #spawn" once connected, without the quotes.
No one really likes rules, but to keep things under control
(cats and dogs, living together, mass hysteria!) and the
channel friendly for all, we have some rules set up. The current
rules can be seen here on this google document.
