In August of 1998, a group of people from the alt.games.diablo newsgroup got together via an email by Kaymen and created and started meeting on battlenet in the channel Justus. That little group has grown now and the channel has evolved into a well respected channel, where people feel comfortable meeting others for games and just chatting.
Since that time, battlenet has set up 'Clan' channels that make it easier to keep ops and we have moved from #Justus to #Clan Justus
#Clan Justus is a channel comprised of people from the newsgroup and people that have heard about us via word of mouth. We are an anti-PK group, but support all types of other game styles. PK's are not welcome on the channel. We also support StarCraft players from AGD and those that have been invited.
We strive very hard to keep the channel free from PK's. As with anything, there is no 100% guarantee, however if you chat there for a bit, you will usually see people you recognize from the newsgroup or from Tony's Honorable Non-PK list. Since we do support varied game styles, it's always a good idea to state what type game you're interested in. If you prefer not to have non-legits in your game, just ask for legits only. All participants in #Clan JustUs are expected to be honorable, therefore, if you ask for legit only players, that is what you should receive.
A question of honor. The best definition of this was said by Tony McElrea, the keeper of the Honorable players list. "Honorable means does not steal or kill others or hog all of spoils, etc." #Clan JustUs is an honorable non PK channel.
Because of the popularity of the channel, and the influx of some people who do not read the newsgroup and know our playing styles and preferences, those of us who op the channel have developed a list of definitions and rules.
What we are:
An Honorable Non-PK channel.
A group of co-operative players
Mostly comprised of people from the alt.games.diablo newsgroup and those they have invited
We are a PRIVATE channel.
What we do not allow:
The official masters of Clan Justus have final say on infractions. They spend many hours keeping the channel a nice place to hang out. It's a lot of hard work on their parts and they don't get paid for it. Do not assume that kicking and banning are the only choice when a situation arises. Oftentimes the channel members handle situations very well without having a gavel in hand. Maturity and good sense go a long ways towards keeping the peace.
Official channel operator is 'Justus' which is a Subbot and supports many operators so that there is usually someone on that can operate the bot and deal with problems.
Come visit and have a good time!
