Click the “Add” button. This window should pop up:


This is the information you should “fill in the blanks” with:

 

If you already have your nickname registered, the password you set up for it should be entered in the “Password:” field.

Click “Add”.

When you return to the mIRC Options menu, click “Connect to IRC Server”. After a bunch of text scrolls on the screen, it should pop up this menu:

 

It will probably NOT look like the one I have here. Select all the #channels available from the top to the very bottom.  Unless you plan on visiting those chatrooms someday (which I doubt), press the “Delete” button.

In the “Enter name of channel to join:” text area, type #tvclubchat. Press the “Add” button.

 

This window MAY OR MAY NOT pop up:

If it doesn’t, skip this step and go to “Highlight #tvclubchat” below.

 

The information you should put in this is:

Channel: #tvclubchat

Pasword: (blank)

Description: (blank)

Network: All

 

Click “OK”.

 

Repeat for #memberschat.

Highlight both #memberschat and #tvclubchat, press the “Join” button.

 

Ta da! You have now joined our channels!


 

To Register Your Nickname

 

Click on the tab that says “Status” on it. This is your status window – if you do a /whois or /names or any server command, this is usually where the information will show up.

 

Make sure that the nickname you want to register is the one you’re currently using by typing /nick THENICKNAMEYOUWANT replacing THENICKNAMEYOUWANT with, well, the nickname you want to use.

 

Type: /ns register PASSWORD EMAIL@ADDRESS.COM replacing PASSWORD with your desired password and EMAIL@ADDRESS.COM with your email address.

 

A message should come up saying your nickname is now registered.

 

Once you’ve done this, you’ll need to set up mIRC to send your password for you.

Go to the menu options at the top and click on “DCC”, then “Options…”

 

In the menu to the right (the folder tree), select the very top folder “Connect”.

Click on the “Edit” button.

In the text box beside the word “Password:” type in your password.

Click “OK”.

Click “OK” again.

 

Ta da! Your nickname is now registered!


To Register Your Channel
