|Alamak Operators / Introduction|
What are Ops?
An Operator or Op is a paying member of the Alamak community who helps
support the chatline and other services provided by Alamak.
If you are an Alamakian who wants to have some say in the chat, help to make
sure Alamak maintains a clean and friendly atmosphere, have unlimited access,
and get all the special commands and added features then you should become an Operator.
Ops get many extra commands and features that are not available to non-operators. For
example Ops have reserved nicknames, can lock private rooms, use in-line graphics, grant other users
to use graphics or color, post on the ops message board, administer the chat,
use cmail, wait lists, freehome, and even save scores in CyberMyst!
See the Op Privileges & Op Commands page for a list.
Ops help to maintain a clean and friendly chatroom. While Ops are not required to enforce
the rules of the chat they do have the ability to kick and ban other users
who are disrupting the chat.
There are many levels of operator. A new
Operator starts at Level 1 and will advance roughly every month up until
level 12. After level 12 it continues to increase 1 level every 3 months.
We will be adding even more non-chat related services hopefully to be completed by the
end of Jul 2003. We won't mention them all yet but many people pay more for each of
these other services individually than they'd pay for Ops on Alamak. As an Operator
you'll get all of these services in one package plus the traditional Alamak Ops package!
How to Signup
Ops can signup by Credit Card using the CC Ops Signup
form and the account will be activated within a few minutes on all our servers. Or, you can
send cheque or money order to one of our offices. Check the
SnailMail Ops Signup page
for more on how to apply by mail.
What's if for?
Operator membership was created for two reasons.
Alamak is free but we have to pay our provider every month for hosting and network
traffic. To meet these expenses we provide Alamak Opertaors extended commands,
add-on features, and extra services.
- To support server improvments, upgrades, and network costs.
- To monitor the chat rooms so all users can enjoy friendly chat without being flooded or harrassed.
Operator subscriptions also helps to pay for servers upgrades, programming, and
addition of new services! All services unless otherwise noted have been developed
independently by Alamak with the support of Operators.
We have redundant servers and networks for reliability. We actually run 4 servers worldwide,
more than you will get with any other web based chatline. These servers run on seperate
networks in the USA and Singapore. If one goes down, you will still be able to use the other ones.
If you compare us with other web based chats you will find that we dont
just offer chat, we have many added on services.
Alamak Chat has been running continuously since 1995, the first ever created,
so you can be sure we're not going to accept your Ops payment today and shutdown
