Topic: IRC help page

A couple weeks ago, I prepared this little text for the future IRC help page of our future website. I just figured that I might as well put it here now. This is a work in progress and will be edited as needed.

Server information
host: irc.seedthecommunity.org
port: 6667

Chatzilla howto
get Chatzilla
1. Launch Chatzilla.

2. Type '/server irc.seedthecommunity.org' in the dialogue box.

3. Type '/nick <nickname>' to set your nickname if so wished.

4. Type '/join #seed' in the dialogue box or click on thr 'IRC' menu, select 'Join channel', highlight #seed and click 'Join'.

WebIRC howto + applet
[death]TODO[/death]

Registering your nickname
To register your nickname:
/msg nickserv register <password>
This enables you to register your nickname on the server with a password so only you can use it. Replace <password> with your password tongue. Passwords *ARE* case sensitive.

To identify yourself later:
/msg nickserv identify <password>

This in mainly used to identify yourself on the server, and give you the op rights if needed.

Killing a ghost to recover your nickname
If you suddenly get disconnected from your isp or the irc server, sometimes a ghosted client will be left behind. This command can be used to kill the ghosted client so you can get your nickname back:
/msg nickserv ghost <nickname> [password]

Getting OP status
Always identify yourself with NickServer before joining a channel. That way, if you have the op rights on a channel, you will automatically opped when joining this channel.

If you forgot to identify your nickname before joining a channel, you can still ask to be opped, by issuing the op command in a private message to ChanServ. For example:
/msg chanserv op #seed will give you the op rights on #seed.

sticky it is smile

Re: IRC help page

Thanks Esme for the Chatzilla Howto big_smile

And thanks Oluf for the stickyness wink

Re: IRC help page

I think it might be of some importance to note that almost the entire community hangs out or visits this IRC channel, and that it is from there we sort of maintain and develop the community. So at times when this forum seems quiet, the community is infact never quiet, there is mostly a lot of debates, chats etc. going on at #seed smile

Bullshit Darkhawk big_smile

The channel is dead 90% of the time I'm on it. Albeit, mostly because everyone is asleep.

That's funny you know, because It;s almost always rather busy when I'm there!
I wonder why that is....

Re: IRC help page

Because I lack the ability to talk feverishly to myself? wink

It's more like what Darkhawk said, being the only person on my bloody continent upsets things.

Re: IRC help page

I know how you feel Sandling.. Every morning at work when I connect to IRC.. there is no one. And my Hello is just lost to everyone.

I feel so rejected too :cry:

Re: IRC help page

Recruit, recruit! And I'll try to get up early just to talk to you Nuala wink

Re: IRC help page

She's being a dramaqueen. I'm usually there to keep her company every late morning wink

Re: IRC help page

The hint in your sentence is "late" tongue Mister "I woke up at ten in the morning then I take a 2 hours nap"

Re: IRC help page

Is IRC dead for everyone or is it just me?
