(Well, not all of these are questions, but you get the point.)
Check his nickname in the member list. If his name is not at the top of the list, he's not here. If it is, he is. If there's a [zZz] after his name, he's asleep. In any case, don't disturb him by saying his name. Wait until he posts himself, that's when he wants to chat.
To change your name, you type like this:
/nick <insert name here>
Whenever Tom is not busy doing something else. Just try to be patient.
No, you didn't, perhaps you browsed it but you did not read it properly. Also, too many people have already said the same thing. Now, stop bragging and get a life.
Uh, sure you can... if you find someone else who wants to... but this is not a place where people come in, chat for an hour and then leave.

Most people aren't here all the time. They're logged in, but they're doing other things. Sometimes they even add something to their nick to tell you what (zZz, gaming, food etc).
We've got standards here. Proper spelling, grammar, capitalization and punctuation makes the chat easier to read.
If you're being called newb it's because you're new. Nothing bad with that. If you're being called noob, however, then you're close to a kick/ban.
We'll stop calling you Newbie when we feel you've been here long enough, we'll stop calling you Noobie when you start showing respect to the regulars and Ops.
There's a thing called a hostmask. It shows us what you really are.
Yes, but not yet. Check the main site, information will be posted there when it's available (possibly not yet).
Tom: I have planned Twokinds to its eventual conclusion, though there are some missing bits inbetween here and there.
You're the Nth (where N is a too large number) person this month who's asked the same thing, so stop nagging about updates!
