Greetings, Guild users.

We've recently opened up an IRC channel which you can use to chat, get help, whatever, all in real-time.

Now, many of you have probably not used IRC, or Internet Relay Chat, so this tutorial will show you how to get connected to the channel, and start talking.

Connecting:

I know many people get confused about what IRC client to use, and how each of them are configured, so to save the hassle, I've created a page on the Guild server using a web-based IRC client. All you have to go is go onto the page, give yourself a nickname, and you're straight into the channel. No hassle with clients, nothing.

Click here to load the web-based client

Alternatively, if you prefer to use your own IRC client (I myself prefer HydraIRC), then you can connect using these details:
              
Code
Server: grobi.burnirc.net
Channel: #CNCGuild


Registering and using your nickname:

Now, just like anywhere else on the Internet, if you want to keep your nickname on the channel and stop it from being stolen or impersonated, you have to register it.
To do that, you merely type in a command in the chat box. IRC, as well as being a chat client, also is a bit of a command prompt in a way.

To change your nickname mid-chat, use the following command:
              
Code
/nick NewNickname

(where NewNickname is your new nickname, obviously)

To register your nickname, make sure your nickname is currently set to the one you want, then use this command:
              
Code
/msg NickServ REGISTER password email

Replacing "password" with your desired password, and "email" with your email address. For example:
              
Code
/msg NickServ REGISTER mypassword lookatme@shinyemailhost.com


Then, when you connect to the channel, use this command to log in and identify that you're the owner of that nickname:

              
Code
/msg NickServ IDENTIFY password

Where "password" is the password you used when registering the nickname.

Additional Commands:

Just like MSN, you can set your status to "Away" on IRC, to do so, just use the command:
              
Code
/away Message

Where "Message" is an *optional* message telling everyone else where you've gone.

Also, you can speak in "actions" on IRC, for example, instead of:
Nighthawk (16:06): slapped you round the head.
It would say,
* Nighthawk slapped you round the head

To do that, simply use the command:
              
Code
/me whatever

Where "whatever" is whatever you want to follow your nickname, like in the above example.

That's basically it. Any other questions, be sure to ask.
