Attention Beta Testers:
- You should register with Freenode and UniIRCBot, so that we can get an auto voice in the Beta IRC Channel.
- When registering with UniIRCBot, please make sure to use your Forum Username so we can identify you.
- 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:
- mIRC (Win32 only)
- XChat (Multiplatform)
- ChatZilla (for those who have Firefox or Mozilla or Netscape)
- Miranda IRC Plugin (for those who love Miranda IM)
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>
/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..
You are free to do whatever you want, but please keep the cursing to a minimum or you will be kicked!
- Bot Tamparing
Do not mess with the bot or you will be kicked!
- Bot Running
Do not run any kind of bot in this channel without permission from a op or a manager!
- 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)
