What is the IRC?
The IRC is similar to Chat, however its purpose is to be used of chat is unavailable or for more private discussions. It is recommended that you use Chat if the option is available, because the IRC can be confusing and is a lot less 'user friendly'. The Chat Rules also apply in the IRC.
Registering a 'Nick'
The first time you use the IRC you will need to create and register a 'nick' or 'nickname'. We request that you use your wiki username as your nickname on the IRC. You will need to pick a password as well. Then when it comes time to register you username you will need to choose an email in order to confirm your nick. You will be sent an activation code to your email, which you then need to post on the IRC. Then you are a registered user.
