Live Chat / IRC Server change

Postby topodisc » Thu May 29, 2008 1:20 am

We have moved to a new IRC server. If you are using the link on the portal, the change has already been made. The old server at gamesnet.net will serve as backup, but you should make the following changes so everyone is communicating on the same channel.

If you use another IRC client (Trillian, Chatzilla, or XChat to name a few) you will need to create a new connection and point yourself to:

server: irc.mibbit.com or irc.maanclan.com (which points to the new server)
channel: #MAAN

This server supports services like NickServ and ChanServ. You can register your nick through NickServ to ensure no one else can use your nickname. Type /msg NickServ help for help. Don't forget to change your nick to the one you want to use before you register. Use /nick nickname for that.

I will be monitoring both the new and old channels just to make sure everyone has moved.

I can't find the server when adding a new connection in Trillian. Can you walk this old dumbass though it?

bd, just go into Trillian and then go to Manage My Connections.

From there click on the Connection you usaully use to bring up all the info on it.

On the second line, where the address is, change it to irc.mibbit.com:6667

That should work.

If it doesn't, click on the Live Chat link on the portal and I can help you out from there.
If that's really what you think, you need to pick up some books and learn some shit. - shorttricky

The mibbit server supports nick registration. This allows you to register a nick and identify yourself as the true owner of the nick. People who have registered a nick can be given automatic voice privileges on our channel.

To register your nick, first change to the nick you want to register (provide a suitable value for italicized text below):
/nick my_desired_nick

Then register with NickServ:
/msg NickServ register password email

You can also ask NickServ for help:
/msg NickServ help
/msg NickServ help register


Next time you join the server, you will need to identify yourself to use your nick:
/msg NickServ identify password

Some IRC clients provide an extra parameter where you can supply your NickServ password so this is done automatically on connect. The Live Chat window provides a password field for this purpose. In Trillian, you would just add the identify command to your perform buffer before joining the channel. For example, "/msg NickServ identify password;/join #MAAN".

You can additional nicknames to your group. For example, if you connect from multiple locations, and your primary nickname is already in use (connected), some IRC clients will automatically choose a secondary or tertiary nick. You can add these to your group to give you the same settings. Change to your secondary nick and add it to your primary nick's group. The password will be the same password originally set up for the primary nick:
/nick secondary_nick
/msg NickServ group primary_nick password

If you register your nick, let me know and I will give you voice on the channel.

You'll need to register your nick (see post above) to be able to send private messages on IRC.
/msg nick message

For your IRC pleasure, I have reclaimed ChanServ ownership of #maan due to the previous management's lack of presence for more than 28 days. *looks at paddy* :spanked:

-ChanServ- Note that any channel which is not used for 28 days
-ChanServ- (i.e. which no user on the channel's access list enters
-ChanServ- for that period of time) will be automatically dropped.

I pledge to be a benevolent IRC owner, serving your daily IRC needs.

Maybe everyone is on vacation, but there doesn't seem to be anyone in IRC these days. Or did people move to another messaging platform?
