wintxI seem to encounter some sort of problems while trying to talk in #ubuntu, could anyone help me out into figuring what could cause the specified problem?00:38
wintxThe error code is obviously, == Cannot send to channel: #ubuntu, thanks in advance, gentlemen.00:38
Fuchswintx: you using webchat and changing your nick, I'd assume. By either using a real client instead, or rejoining from webchat  should help00:38
wintxI tried to rejoin, yet I seem to encounter the same problem each time I /part and /join00:39
Fuchshow webchat is handled is a bit special, I'll leave this case to actual ops then (I am just network staff), as said, using an actual client definitely would help.00:39
wintxFuchs: Would empathy (packed in ubuntu 12.10) do the job for me, fellow gent?00:40
Fuchswintx: would. It's not what I would recommend, based on my experience IM clients are horrible for IRC. I'd personally recommend something like hexchat/xchat which also comes packaged for ubuntu, but whatever suits you best00:41
wintxFuchs: Loads of thanks.00:41
nluxCannot join #ubuntu (You are banned).00:44
nlux^Can any fellow gent give me a hand?00:45
nluxFuchs: ^00:47
Fuchsthere is a ban matching your host, set by floodbot00:48
Fuchsas I am not an ubuntu operator, I am afraid you have to wait until one of them is around, I wont override their bans, sorry00:48
nluxOf course, cause of name change.00:48
nluxThanks Fuchs :)00:48
FuchsYou're welcome00:48
ubottuTheLordOfTime called the ops in #ubuntu (watchtower's flooding)01:01
elkynlux, do you remember why you were banned?01:21
nluxelky frequently changing my name01:22
elkyyou put plenty of effort into trolling, so you should remember it.01:22
nluxtrolling? is this a joke?01:22
elkywhy did you think it was the nick changing? what nicks did you use?01:22
nluxyou think I don't have better things to do?01:22
nluxlike setting up my rig?01:22
nlux4 nicks.. first was registered01:23
nluxso I had to change it01:23
nluxit didn't show up so, I changed it again01:23
elkywhat were the actual nicks?01:23
nluxthey were plainly random01:24
nluxrelated to the word lux.01:24
elky 2012-12-25T21:48:19 *** truefaith (5c534e5a@gateway/web/freenode/ip. has joined #ubuntu01:24
nluxseems like that's me.01:25
elkylooks identical, including the hash bit at the front01:25
nluxbut anyways what's the point?01:25
elky 2012-12-25T21:53:51 <truefaith> NoorideeNA: erase disk01:26
elky 2012-12-25T21:57:43 <truefaith> I still use 4.0401:26
elky 2012-12-25T22:04:50 <truefaith> NoorideeNA, of course, Ubuntu is Windows branch.01:26
elky 2012-12-25T22:06:07 <truefaith> ubottu: can you make me a sandwich?01:26
elkyand so forth01:27
nluxI can't see the trolling part, kind sir.01:27
nluxAnd I really wrote those?01:27
nluxlet me check the log01:27
elkyif you can't see the trolling in those, then you're certainly not going back in, since you'll just continue01:27
elkyanyway, i need to run to do some boxing day shopping. ciao01:28
elkysomeone else can pick up, after you've had some time to contemplate01:29
nluxif i am trying to install ubuntu in a Vbox what installation type shall i use, erase disk and install ubuntu or something else?01:29
nluxerase disk01:29
nluxcan't see the trolling.01:29
nluxhave fun elky01:30
nluxMeh. Can any one just tell me the ban length?01:31
IdleOnebans don't have a predetermined time limit01:38
* nlux sighs.01:38
nluxMy IP is going to reset.. so it is kinda tough01:38
nluxI don't want to break the rules..01:38
IdleOneI agree with elky that if you can't see the trolling in what you said in those lines elky pasted, then I don't see you being unbanned01:39
nluxI apologize for my actions, yet I really don't see the trolling part.01:39
elkynlux, there were 4 lines, not the one you're digging your heels in about01:39
nluxThe fact that it's childish, yes I admit that01:40
nluxbut trolling, I can't seem to be able to identify this.01:40
elkytrolling is fairly broad, and we consider intentionally being annoying as trolling01:41
elkyasking the bot for a sandwich after being told to stop trolling and agreeing to stop trolling, is trolling.01:41
nluxI didn't mean to be trolling, I didn't even knew trolling was against the rules. I don't even know what trolling implies, is it lying for personal amusement?01:41
nluxBecause I don't consider this funny.01:42
elkyIn Internet slang, a troll (pron.: /ˈtroʊl/, /ˈtrɒl/) is someone who posts inflammatory,[1] extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community01:42
elkycalling ubuntu a windows branch is inflammatory01:43
nluxI didn't really...01:43
elkydeclaring one's use of warty is rather inflammatory, but mostly extraneous.01:43
elkyasking the bot for a sandwich is plainly offtopic for a tech support channel01:44
nluxOkay, I'm sorry. I'll try expressing my self in a less troll way from now onward01:44
nluxI was curious...01:44
elkyIdleOne, ok, i really am heading off, can you pick this up?01:44
nluxand yes I know I should have had queried ubottu01:44
nluxhave fun elky01:44
elkybe good ;)01:45
IdleOnenlux:  have a read of the following real quick please01:45
ubottuThe guidelines for using the Ubuntu channels can be found here: http://wiki.ubuntu.com/IRC/Guidelines01:45
IdleOneI'll remove the ban in a moment01:45
nluxthanks for the guidelines. pretty helpful01:46
IdleOnenlux: Just a FYI there is alos #ubuntu-offtopic if you want to join and chit chat (same guidelines)01:47
nluxThis was a pretty bad start in here, can I still try to be a nice guy, and perhaps one day become a master of the universe? :)01:47
IdleOneperhaps one day if you master all the potions and spells01:48
nluxThat really wasn't a trolling attempt...01:48
IdleOnethe ban in #ubuntu has been removed.you will need to part and rejoin to be able to speak I believe01:48
IdleOneI know :)01:48
nluxAm I still able to apply for an irc channel operator after a few months of being a good citizen?01:49
IdleOneif/when there is a call for ops, sure.01:49
* nlux hugs Idle0ne01:50
elkyi love it when they ask if they can be ops _as_ they are getting bans lifted02:49
