Chat Other Pages: IRC Chat |

As you may have noticed, the site has had a chatroom for a while now. If you want to go there right away, it's quite easy: Just click the animation on the forums pages and a window with a Java client will pop up.

A few errors may come up, most notably the Unable to connect(null) one. This one can have several causes - a firewall that's not allowing you to connect, something temporary that blocks it, security setting that do not allow you to, or other things. You can try again later, that often works.

The quick and short information for those who already have a client they know how to use:

If it doesn't work, it may be better for you to get a dedicated IRC client. For Windows systems, we recommend mIRC. For Unix and Linux, try X-Chat. For more clients, also for other operating systems, check this website.

Setting up mIRC

Chatting and useful commands

There are a number of handy commands you can use while in the chat.
The different looking text such as * Joeno goes off to moderate the forums can be produced with the /me command:
/me goes off to moderate the forums
You can change your nickname with /nick:
/nick OtherNick
You can send someone a private message others can see with /msg:
/msg Joeno Are you really the great Joeno?
There's far more, of course, but this is a start.

The IRC network we are on, ECNet, also has services. These make sure noone else can use your nick without permission, and prevents channels from being taken over. For normal use, you will want to use the following commands:
/ns register
This registers your nickname so that only you can use it. You only need to do this once. Replace password with a personal password you want to use, and write it down. The email address is optional. Do not add the <>'s when entering this command!
/ns identify
This identifies you to your nick. This way, the server knows it is you, and allows you to do other stuff, and doesn't change your nick because someone else isn't using it.

We hope to see you in the channel!

Thanks to theRealOne for some notes I used
