When you enter the channel, keep in mind we may not react right away. Depending on the timezone, most of us are not active until after 11am EST, so slow responses will occur. That doesn't mean we are ignoring you, we are simply not at the computer. We will return to you however once we are active.
Myself, I am typically online all day, but since I'm a Mother, my attention is directly on my child unless she's not home. However, I do try to keep my eyes on the computer when I can.
Don't be afraid to come back later if noone is around to respond.
I suggest reading our thread on IRC Commands as it's crucial to learn most of them.
#DawnRunners is our In Character channel, aka. IC Channel. #DR*OOC is the OOC, or Out of Character channel.
