Fanon Pokedex: Chatroom Topics
List of Topics in the PEFE Chatroom
The Extended PokÚdex project supports discussion via a Jabber chatroom courtesy of Tangent's services. There, discussion on ongoing entries, constructions, worldbuilding and other details take place. The service features ongoing logs, but without an integrated search capability. Thus the purpose of this page. Chatroom URI is as follows:
(Note the "Ú" as in PokÚmon)
For quick instructions: use a Jabber capable client and connect to a Jabber or compatible account, then add the above service as a chatroom or "friend". Connect and done. Check the bottom of this page for more detailed instructions.
Most of this implementation courtesy of Tangent 128
The purpose of this page is help organizing the chatroom topics with keywords or tags (not to be confused with Tagg) here to ease search. For simplicity, tags should be either simple words or noun phrases and draw from sources like these:
- Species names (eg.: Riolu talk, etc), using the base morph to avoid errors or loses due to discreteness.
- Item / places / mechanic names or general description nouns (eg.: Berry / fruit, Sinnoh mythology, draining moves,
weatherbending weather effects, etc).
- Operational keywords: submission, discussion, revision, etc..
- Keywords for external references: RP or WAAPT for the roleplay, shortcuts or full names for Bulbapedia or other sources, etc?
- Member discussion keywords?

Connecting to the PEFE Chatroom
...via a Jabber-capable Client
If you have a Jabber account, you can use that to connect. Those are free to create, and also some services such as Gmail are compatible with the service so you can add those instead.
For example, to create a Jabber account in Pidgin, follow these steps:
- Edit Menu, Accounts, Add New Account.
- Protocol: XMPP
- Username: the "user" in your firstname.lastname@example.org, for example
- Domain: the "jabber.org" in your email@example.com, for example
- Resource: leave empty and bookmark a chat connection when appropriate
Whether you have done that, or connected via another capable account like Gmail, all you need to do now is to add a chatroom "friend" to your account records:
- Friends menu, add a chat...
- Select the running account (you must be connected to it).
- Chatroom: pokÚdex (note the Ú)
- Server: salon.tropi.us
- Handle: your handle (if you leave it empty, it is your username)
Connect via a web interface
There is also a web interface provided for those who don't (or can't) want to mess with a Jabber-capable client. The chatroom's address is quite mnemonic: http://wild.tropi.us
. Once you type that, you should appear in the chatroom inteface, assigned to a random Wild PokÚmon nickname like Wild_Tropius_Lv11
(hence the name). Use the "/nick Some Nick" command to change your nick. Use the "/me does some action" command to send a message of the type "[PLAYER CHARACTER] does some action".
