For the Newcomers
Login as guest. Type GUEST and no password is required.
You can play or observe a game as a GUEST, but usually it is recommended to get a HANDLE name before you play on WING.
A HANDLE is a name you will be called on WING.
First, decide the HANDLE name you wish to use. A HANDLE name must satisfy the following conditions:
(1) It should consist of alphabets (case-sensitve) and numbers only.
(2) The length of the name should be 2 - 10.
(3) It should start with an alphabet.
(4) It is not used by someone else on WING.
To check if a handle has already been used or not, enter the following command in the input area (usually bottom of the window) after you login. For example, if you intend to use a handle 'David', type
If it is not listed, you can use that name.
Please take note all handles on WING is case-sensitive. Therefore, David, david, DAVID are all different names.
To register a new handle, you need to provide your E-mail address.
For example, if your mail address is email@example.com, enter the following command correctly:
register David firstname.lastname@example.org
If you wish to register your name as well, add your name as well.
register David email@example.com David Oistrach
If you typed correctly, the server will prompt you to enter the handle name and mail address again using the CONFIRM command, like this:
confirm David firstname.lastname@example.org
After doing so, the server will send you a mail whichi contains the handle name and password immediately, which shall reach you usually within a few seconds, or in a few minutes, depends on your mail server. When you have the password, come back here again and enter WING with your new handle and the password. Now you are a member of WING!
See you on WING!
