A Basic IRC Tutorial


When you click on the picture, you will be presented with a form you need to fill out to access the chat. This form is made up of:

Nickname:
Channels:

*Little box that says "Auth to Services"*

Captcha:


When you fill out this form, you should use your Mythical Creatures username, or something similar, as your nickname (For example, my username is
X-WolfHunter, and my IRC nickname is QuantumWolf). In the Channels box, type in what's in the parentheses (#MythicalCreatures). Obviously, do not include the parenthesis. Where it says "Auth to Services," if you have a registered nickname (More information on which can be found below) you can click on the box and type in your nickname and password to identify yourself to the IRC server. If you are a channel OP, it is necessary that you do so if you wish to be able to use your OP powers.

It is strongly recommended that you register a nickname on the IRC if you haven’t already. This prevents anyone from stealing your nickname and
also makes it easier for us to ban you :) (Not really with the "ease of ban" thing)

The command to do so is below (Type it in after you've
joined the channel):

/msg NickServ register desiredpassword youremail

Once you’ve typed that in (Right into the spot where you would type regular messages) go to your email and click on the proffered link to complete
the registration process.

A couple of useful resources for commands and the general workings of the IRC:





One thing you should learn is how to use the MemoServ commands (Found in the “Commands” link). They are very useful in making sure someone
gets a message. What it does is sends a “memo” to the desired username, even if the owner of the username is not online, notifying them of it the next time they log in.
