Rings, OOC, and IC?

HELP OOC has been updated to be more specific, and less confusing when it comes
to issues. This is NOT retroactive, nor does it apply to existing issues.

- ALL channels are considered IC by default.
- Admin interactions are ALWAYS OOC (issues, bugs, ...).
- This includes crafters, and any other mortal helpers' channels.
- Newbie is OOC.
- Rings are OOC.
- Clans may be either, but it must be clear and cannot be changed on a whim.
