Moderate Channels in mIRC
To conduct a large Group Discussion you need some procedure to create order.
Without order, you may have a rather chaotic channel with multiple-individual conversations with participants speaking all over each other.
The following simple procedure simulates typical class group discussion using basic etiquette for discussion:
- The Instructor takes the role of the Discussion Moderator.
As in face-to-face discussion, the Moderator can make statements to the whole group or address individuals.
The Moderator also determines who among the group will speak and in what order.
- All who wish to speak -- to "have the floor" -- must raise their hand.
To do this on IRC, hit the Exclamation key: ! and then wait for the Moderator to call on them.
- Whoever speaks communicates in short statements.
The Speaker uses Ellipses to indicate continuation of speaking: .....
- When finished, the Speaker types: Done or uses normal end punctuation.
- The Moderator then comments, questions the Speaker or calls on another Speaker.
