Just your basic page telling you what a talker is, and what goes on there.
A talker is your soultion. A talker is like a chat room, only about a million times better. What you do, is you log onto a system, and enter a handle. (fake name) then there comes some stuff about the rules of the talker, and maybe some history about it. Read the rules well, for you will be expected to follow them. After all that stuff, you are placed in the main room of the talker.
A talker is kind of like a whole world. There are all sorts of rooms, some private, some not. You get to make your own room,
and write a description on it if you like. Anyhow, you get into the main room, and now what do you do?
type: say (and then whatever you want to say)
If you get stuck, type: lsu and ask them for help by saying it in the main room. when you type lsu, you list the Super Users, people who are on the system to help out people like you. Nice, isn't it ?
If there isn't a SU on, try talking to some people. ask questions.
Okay.. below are some talkers I go to often. Just click on the
name, and you're on your way. (note: you can only use talkers if you
have some sort of terminal program, it's how the programs talk to
Island is a great place to go, it has a nice new code, colors,
friendly people, and a nice atmosphere. I go there most often now.
The Burbs a good talker, it's where some of my good friends
hang out. If there was some sort of rating system, the 'Burbs would
have three if I was the judge.
The StarShip has really great colors, a toms of commands.
Although few people go there, It's a good place to check out. I'm sure
that if it started to get a regular flow of people, it could be better
than the burbs.
Walt is a disney based talker, and the people on it are almost always nice to you, and make you feel welcome.
The Dreamscape is where I first started on talkers. The people
there have always been a fun loving croud, and willing to help you get
The Detroit City came about when City closed down. Some people
wanted to keep it going, and they have done so greatly. You can still
find some of the old City spods on there. They're like old presidents
The Animal House is where my brother hangs out.. he was a Lower
ADmin on there, but now he's just a Super User, which is still someting
to brag about. (a SU is like a system cop) Beanbag is there too.
The world is a larger talker compared to all of the above,
there's usually about 60 people on there, compared to the 20-30 that's
on burbs, and fewer on the others. It is a good place to start out
also, because there's almost always someone there to help you out.
Okay... there they are. I hope you are able to get something
out of them. If you really want your talker added to this list, email
me and I'll think about it :)
