<+Reverend> IRC is just multiplayer notepad.

If you're already a well-versed IRC user, then point the client of your choice to (Ports 6660-6669 are available, as well as 6697 and 7001 for SSL) and join us in #site19 (registration with NickServ is required, must be identified with services before joining).

If none of that makes a bit of sense to you, please read these basics in their entirety before scrolling down to the chat window and attempting to chat, because it probably will not work otherwise.

IRC (Internet Relay Chat) allows for discussions across multiple channels, which are prefixed with a #. For example, #football, #cats, and #techsupport would be topical channels people might congregate in. You can also have private, 1-on-1 conversations with people, and even create your own channels to discuss whatever you'd like.

If you scroll down this page you'll see something that looks like this:


We make use of three primary channels here.

  • #site19 - For general discussion.
  • #site17 - For getting help from staff.
  • #thecritters - For giving and receiving critique on drafts and ideas.

You will need to register your nickname to join #site19, the main discussion channel. You can do this by typing:

/register [password] [email]

In any window.

If you have more questions, please feel free to ask chat operators for assistance.

Remember, to join chat, you must have read and understood the guide!

If you are having issues connecting, please go to the staff chat client over here.
