IC OOC "IN CHARACTER" " OUT OF CHARACTER"
IC - In character - Means that you're not chatting with your friends about friday nights plans, or what to wear to the mall, it means what your MUD CHARACTER is saying. Ignorance is no excuse for misusing channels, if you mean to jokingly tell someone OOC you're going to kill them but do it IC they have every right to defend themselves and attack you if they feel threatened. You can use the ask and answer, as well as tell channels (if you don't understand them there's a reason someone teaches languages) if;you want to talk OOC or just go to a hotel, it's not that difficult and it's cheaper then using IC and clears up any confusion and lessens whining because someone was killed because they "accidentally said the wrong thing on the wrong channel". OOC - Out of Character - Means you're talking about issues not game related like a bug or have another mud-based question, this does not mean you go "Hey Jim I need food pick me up" or "Hey So and So just killed me I'm gonna get you!" however there are a constantly growing number of help files and most of your basic questions should be there for answering, but yes there are times here there are questions only an imm or a fellow player can answer. However Excessive abuse of OOC will result in possibly being silenced. See help WhatIsIC, WhatisOOC
