    Stickpage IRC Channel Help/Tutorial

    IRC is an acronym that stands for "Internet Relay Chat", and has been a preferred method of internet chatting for a very long time. This guide is intended to help you connect to the Stickpage IRC channel, and provide a few tips and tricks for IRC use.

    Part 1: The IRC client

    In order to connect to the Stickpage IRC channel, you must first have a program called an "IRC client" that allows you to do this. You have a lot of options:

    mIRC

    - mIRC is one of the most popular IRC clients, but can be very difficult to use if you're just beginning.

    - It is free for a limited amount of time, and then you are expected to pay a one time fee for the program

    Download here

    XChat

    - Much simpler, user friendly interface

    - Less capable than other IRC clients

    - Free

    Download here

    Chatzilla

    - Another popular client, the difference is that this client is strictly for use with firefox as an add-on

    - Nice, clean, web-like interface

    - Powerful scripting capabilities

    - user friendly

    - completely customizable

    - free

    Download here

    Mibbit

    - Browser based

    - No downloads or installation

    - VERY limited usability

    - User friendly

    I wont be including mibbit in any other steps of the guide, mainly because Adelais (the server Stickpage IRC is hosted on) does not like users using mibbit, and also because if you understand how to connect to other IRC clients, mibbit is a breeze.

    Mobile

    - There are IRC clients for smartphones as well. These wont be covered in other steps, but if you understand how to connect on PC based IRC clients, it should be simple to do on the phone

    - For android, notable IRC clients are andChat, androIRC, yaaic, and others as well.

    Part 2: Connecting to the server and channel

    mIRC

    Once you've installed and opened mIRC, you'll see this view:



    Enter in your nickname, and an alternative nickname in case your preferred nickname is already in use. Then, on the left hand tree menu, click "servers" under "connect"



    Click on "add", the following menu should pop up. Enter in "Adelais" for the description, and put irc.adelais.net in the IRC server box. The rest of the fields you don't need to edit



    After you have done this, "Adelais" should be highlighted at the bottom of the list. If it is not highlighted, highlight it and press "select". This should bring you back to the "Connect" menu, where you will press "Connect".

    This should bring you to the following set-up:



    From here, enter #stickpage into the text box at the top (like below), and press "Join"



    You are now connected! Enjoy.


    XChat

    After you've installed and opened XChat, the following box should pop up:



    Fill in the nick-name field as you want it, and then press "Add". Double-click the "New Server" and rename it to "Adelais".



    Then, with "Adelais" selected, press "Edit".



    From here, double click "newserver/6667" and in it's place type "irc.adelais.net".



    From here you can choose to Auto-connect to this server at start up, which is usually preferred.

    Once you're finished, press "close" and then select adelais from the list, and click "Connect" at the bottom right of the window, which will bring up the following:



    Enter in #stickpage in the "Join this channel" text box, and press "ok".

    You are now connected! Enjoy!

    Part 3: Nickname registration and IRC commands

    - Under construction







    I'll be adding more to this guide when I have more time, what I have now is more than enough to get you started and chatting in stickpage IRC. Happy chatting!

    http://xat.com/ is another good one.

    Stickpage itself used this one: http://xat.com/stickpage

    And I could never pass up the chance to advertise my own, so here is mine: http://xat.com/TrueMortal

    We already have a new IRC channel on Rizon. Before that, we had one on quakenet that was in use for years and years and years. I dunno why you've decided to use a new server

    Well it won't hurt, right? It's not like anyone went to that server anyway.

    We've decided because it was the one we've been on for years and years. It also currently now has roughly 40 users online. Once we finally get the FA channel members fully migrated we should hold a solid 55-65 users. From there, once we get all of stickpage on board we could easily double that.

    Around how many active forum members do you expect to migrate from FA onto this forum?

    Once the bulk is over here they will have no choice but to move over anyway.

    Since when does xChat cost money? Bloody hell.

    I'll just install mIRC for now.
