Join us at our IRC channel.
IRC Server: irc.freenode.net
Help & Support IRC Channel: #uniserver or #uniformserver
Development IRC Channel: #unidev or #unibeta

Attention Beta Testers:

  1. You should register with Freenode and UniIRCBot, so that we can get an auto voice in the Beta IRC Channel.
  2. When registering with UniIRCBot, please make sure to use your Forum Username so we can identify you.
  3. When registering with Freenode, please set your IRC Nickname in the My Control Center of the Forum so we can link you with it.

Choosing an IRC Client

You need an IRC client like:

Well, those are the 4 main IRC clients we have seen on our channel :) You can find more IRC clients here.

Registering with Freenode

Registering your nickname with Freenode is easy and simple. Simply type:

/ns register <password>

You can also use:

/msg nickserv register <password>

To identify yourself on your next login to the IRC Server simple use:

/ns identify <password>

Or you can also use:

/msg nickserv identify <password>

Registering with UniIRCBot

Our channel's IRC bot is called UniIRCBot. You are encouraged to register with it (also remember to identify to it when you join, if it doesn't recognize you by your hostmask). Please note that the Bot does not have 24/7 uptime, and may be down sometimes.

Here are the commands: To Register:

/msg UniIRCBot register <name> <password>

To Identify:

/msg UniIRCBot identify <name> <password>

Note: The two commands above must always be used in private (which means that you must type the exact command listed above (well, just replace <name> with your nickname and <password> with your password) with the /msg)

I'll let the bot do the rest of the explaining:

(MrX) @help register
(UniIRCBot) MrX: (register <name> <password>) -- Registers <name> 
with the given password <password> and the current hostmask of the 
person registering. You shouldn't register twice; if you're not 
recognized as a user but you've already registered, use the addhostmask 
command to add another hostmask to your already-registered user, or use 
the identify command to identify just for a session. This (1 more 
message)
(MrX) @more
(UniIRCBot) MrX: command (and all other commands that include a 
password) must be sent to the bot privately, not in a channel.
(MrX) @help identify
(UniIRCBot) MrX: (identify <name> <password>) -- Identifies the 
user as <name>. This command (and all other commands that include a 
password) must be sent to the bot privately, not in a channel.

After registration, you'll be able to use commands like @Note and others..

Channel Rules

  1. Cursing
    You are free to do whatever you want, but please keep the cursing to a minimum or you will be kicked!
  2. Bot Tamparing
    Do not mess with the bot or you will be kicked!
  3. Bot Running
    Do not run any kind of bot in this channel without permission from a op or a manager!
  4. Stupid Questions
    Please do not ask stupid questions that are bound to annoy others (for example, don't ask if you can ask a question)
