    MMO-Champion IRC (Now with added statistics!)

    Little known fact, but there's actually two main communities behind MMO-Champion; The forum users and the IRC users. Most people on IRC know about the forums but don't post much, but only a few people on the forums know about IRC. So that's where this topic comes in, let's try and bring the community a little closer

    To see what kinda stuff we get up to in this channel, take a look at our stats! Updated every 10 minutes, it should give you a peek into IRC

    • What is IRC?
    • How do I join?
    • How do I use it?
    • Why should I bother?

    What is IRC?
    IRC (Internet Relay Chat) is basically the equivalent to a giant chat room. In fact, most chat rooms people are used to today are actually based from how IRC operates. Prior to message boards and such, IRC used to be the most popular method of communication for big communities online.

    There are hundreds of IRC networks around, thousands of programs to connect to these networks and hundreds of thousands of channels on each network. But don't worry, you don't have to join all of them :P

    How do I get IRC?
    There's many many programs floating around that let you connect to IRC. mIRC is the most popular client for windows users, but you can just use a webchat if you don't feel like downloading anything

    Once you find a nice program and set it up with your desired nickname, you have to set it up to connect to quakenet. mIRC users can just select "Quakenet" from the list of servers in the options (It's the second option on the left when you first run the program). If you decided on the webchat then you don't have to worry, it already connects you to Quakenet Alternatively, any other program you're using should come with a nice help section to show you how to connect to the server of your choice.

    Once you've connected to quakenet, you need to join a channel. Channels are basically ways of splitting up IRC to group individual chats. Most channels can be identified by starting with a # sign; for example, the MMO-Champion channel is simply #mmo-champion. You may join this channel in your program of your choice by typing /join #mmo-champion. Alternatively, if you used the webchat I linked earlier, it should automatically join the channel for you

    How do I use IRC?
    IRC is primarily text based. As such, most things are achieved with simple commands that you type in. Most programs will simplify this, however, by doing the commands for you and giving you a nice interface to them with buttons and menus and whatever. But that's just going to complicate things to explain them all for each programs, so I'll stick to commands for this. All commands start with /, if you don't add that beginning / then you're sending a message to the channel you're in.

    To join channels, simply type /join #channelname. If the channel doesn't exist, it'll create it for you. There's no limit on what channels you can create, only that they don't already exist. Feel free to make one for your guild, for example

    While inside channels, you can sometimes see signs next to peoples names - such as @ or +. Users that have @ next to their name inside a channel indicates they are an operator of that channel (Sometimes referred to as "op"s). These people can kick you and ban you and lots of fancy stuff on the channel. For #mmo-champion, this is reserved to forum administrators and some global moderators. People with a + next to their name have "voice", this just means if there's ever a drastic spam attack and we make the channel moderated, then only people with + or @ can talk. Don't worry about it for now

    If you want to talk privately with a specific person in IRC, you can open up a query with them. Simply type /query Nickname Message goes here (But replace nickname and your message). This will open up a new chat between you and that person, nobody else will see it.

    Be careful though, anyone can use anyone elses name in IRC and there's nothing to stop them. You need to be sure you're talking to the right person. That's where /whois nickname comes in handy. This will give you a bunch of information about who a person is, such as their IP address and if they've authenticated themselves with Quakenet to prove who they are. For myself, if you whois me you should see something like "Dinnerbone is authed as Dinnerbone".

    If you're tired of your nickname and want a new one, simply type /nick newname. The only restriction on this is that the new name must not be in use already.

    I know all this. Where's the channel?
    Server: irc.quakenet.org
    Channel: #mmo-champion

    Why should I bother?
    Because I said so.

    Re: MMO-Champion IRC Channel

    Nice.
    But would have been even nicer if you put the server and channel name somewhere more visible so the expereienced user don't have to read almost the entire post ;)

    Also, too bad it's on quakenet... the one network I'm just not logging onto anymore no matter what...

    Daily chaos on #mmo-champion

    So, Dinnerbone programmed a script that kicks people automatically who type "!list" into the chat ... well, working as intended?

    If the MMO-Champion home page is "/content" then the forums should be "/discontent". (source)
