I have updated and registered the channel! Meaning now it can save settings into its database. This also means that if I make a mod on RaymanPC a mod/admin/op on the IRC, then, assuming they have a registered account (do what DesLife said on page four), they will permanently be a mod/admin/op... so it'll be a lot more organised!
If you're having trouble connecting via that webclient, try one of these simpler ones (sorry, no RaymanPC skin):
- Report any bugs, and ways you think could help improve this chat.
- Mods and Admins are encouraged to register their nicks so they can be uniquely given at least temporary OP.
List of Ops
- DesLife (Owner)
- Adsolution (Admin) <- Was owner, but was mysteriously robbed of said title.
- PowerPatrick (Admin)
IRC Guide (by DesLife)
Using the IRC is actually pretty simple. There are only a few basic commands you need to know in order to use it.
To use a command, you have to type "/[command name here]". For example, to change your nick, you only need to type "/nick [New nickname]". However, while you are not online, anyone can use you nick, thus it's recommended you register your nickname: there's a wiki page for that on mibbit's wiki.
The other commands you need to know are join, part, quit, whois, away and me (they are not really necessary if you only use the RaymanPC Mibbit interface for our chan, but they will provide you with a basic understanding of how to use the IRC).
To join another channel, type "/join #[Channel name]" : this will create a new tab in your IRC tab (yo dawg) for the channel you just joined. If said channel doesn't exist, this will create it.
Ex : /join #RaymanPC (This is obviously our chan)
quit is self-explanatory : it will simply quit the IRC. However, if you only want to leave one chan, use part.
Ex : /part #RaymanPC (or just /part if you want to leave the chan in which you're typing this command).
whois allows you to get some information about another user. For example, here is the result of /whois DesLife:
Code: Select all
Nick: DesLife Away: At school Username: corn@Nix-3FB1E6B1.iiens.net Real name: purple Server: Equinox.tx.us.nixtrixirc.net (Nixtrix IRC Server) Currently on: ~#RaymanPC Idle for: 2 minutes Online since: Fri 06 Jan 2012 02:26:50 PM CET
away is useful if you have to leave but don't want to quit the IRC. Some people change their nicks for that purpose (Adsolution changes it to Adsolution|Zz when she goes to bed).
Ex : /away At school. When you are back, just simply type /away.
Finally, me is a useless but fun command. It makes you talk in the third person.
Ex: /me is writing an IRC guide.
(04:27:16 PM) ***DesLife is writing an IRC guide.
To privately talk to someone, just click on their name in the memberlist and click on PM (you can also use the command query). Clicking on Info will show you the same infos that whois. Ignore is self-explanatory.
Tip: when typing someone's nick, just type the first two letters then hit Tab. IRC will complete the nick for you.
How to set up an IRC client to use Nixtrix
You can stick to using the webclient, but if you grow tired of it or want to try something else, you can use a desktop IRC client. For this guide I will show you how to use Pidgin.
Once you've downloaded the software, go to Accounts > Manage accounts (or simply do Ctrl + A). Create a new account.
Code: Select all
Protocol : IRC Username : Your nick Server : irc.nixtrixirc.net Password : your pw if your nick is registered
Now enable this account (it's called YourNick@irc.nixtrixirc.net), this will open some tabs (Chanserv and Nickserv). Type /join #RaymanPC. To add this chan to your favorites, just do Conversation > Add.
And there you are!
Note : Pidgin can also be used for many other IM protocols, such as MSN, AIM, Facebook Chat or even Steam Friends. Very convenient.
Thanks for reading and see ya on the IRC!
