I'm in both the chat room and the awcritcircle at the moment, if anyone has any problems. Yes, the chat is currently moderated (although I'm in there at the moment so I've unmoderated it), it does not affect the critcircle though, which is unmoderated as it's behind the password.

If you go into the absolutewrite chat room and type

/join #awcritcircle birolsangels

(then press enter)

It'll take you right to the crit room.

(If anyone wants to test that out for me just in case though :D )

I was in there early this morning, and it worked great for me. Of course Jed was there. I tried again, at noon (PDT), and it gave me the same message. It might let me in that night. I'll have to wait and see.

Anybody got a pistol so I can shoot my computer?

Ah, I had unmoderated the room whilst I was in. Can you come in again and see if works if the room is moderated?

Just tested it all with Calli (thanks Calli :) ) and it does work all fine. Please note: If the main absolutewrite chat room doesn't have a chat op in it, then the room is moderated. This means you cannot chat/post in the room. However, you can still type in the command that allows you to switch rooms.

So, if you go into the absolutewrite chat room and type

/join #awcritcircle birolsangels

(then press enter)

It'll take you right to the crit room. And there you can chat and have fun, I mean do the critiques, as normal :)

Yeah, I'm just trying to get my post count up in this thread. What I should've done was check out the Java link that was posted on the previous page by Sara first. You can get to the critcircle chat room the same way as you did before via that link, typing in the info as described below. (You can also do it the way I described in the above post too. But that's neither here nor there :D )

To enter the chat room from that link: http://www.starchat.net/chat/?chan=AWCritCircle .


  • Click on the link!
  • Next to Nick, enter your AW userid (or the id you want to use in the chat room).
  • Next to Please Enter the Name of the Room you want to go to, type AWCritCircle (I've changed the link above so it should now already say this)
  • Next to Channel/Room Key (optional) type birolsangels.
  • Click Connect to StarChat
From an IRC:

  • Open your IRC.
  • Type /join #awcritcircle birolsangels
  • Press enter. This should open up the chat room we will be using.
  • If necessary, change your nick to your AW userid.
In ChatZilla Type: /server irc.starchat.net

(if prompted for password for your id, enter your chat (nick) password)

Then type: /join #AWCritCircle Birolsangels

OK, I just gave it a try and it worked... I was a tad nervous because I'm not at home and I'm not using my computer and I'm on a wireless... but it worked! so now I have NO excuses....

BTW: You guys will be SO jealous when you hear where I am!
And then I'll tell you that I'm here for work and then you'll n longer be jealous....
But if by any chance I don't show up tomorrow, it's NOT because I've chickened out.... It's because I'm on the beach!!!!!! :D

jokin'.....

Not sure if I'll make it either, but I'll try. If I'm not there, I'll email my critique later.

So is anyone online right now who uses Chatzilla? I just downloaded it and there are lots of buttons. Do I just need to "join" awcritcircle and that's that? I feel like I'm missing a couple steps...

Funny, I look at your avatar and think that you're always on vacation!!! :)

Thanks to those who sharpened their knives last night, I now have a plan for my story.

That's a good question right now.
It was a small group last night, but a good session. One thing I'm wondering: Our next scheduled meeting falls on the US Memorial Day. Would it be better to move it up by a week? The individual on the chopping block has indicated either day works for them.
