xx Official NexusLAN IRC Channel (Real-Time Chat) irc.quakenet.org #NexusLAN
October 11, 2013, 04:37:28 PM by evildoer
We've set up a channel on irc.quakenet.org.  Simply connect your client and join #NexusLAN.

What is IRC?
IRC is a client-server based real time chat application.  Think of like an in game chat - with moderators - that you can be connected to 24/7.

IRC Clients
MIRC: http://www.mirc.com/get.php?version=732 (Locks after 90 days and no registration)
Hydra-IRC: http://www.hydrairc.com/content/downloads
X-Chat: http://xchat.org/windows/
Or the thousands of others..

Two commands you need to know.
/server irc.quakenet.org
/join #nexuslan

FAQ

Why not Gamesurge?
QuakeNet is a larger network and supports their network better than gamesurge.  Frankly, gamesurge was the first choice but the inability to register a channel and one word answers from their support staff forced me to look else-where.  Frankly, QuakeNet appears to be a more professionally ran IRC server.

We have forums/teamspeak/ventrillo/gtalk for communications
IRC is different.  One person can effectively address many people at one time and it can be both real-time, and delayed in that you can always scroll up or respond to a question later. 

Worth mentioning: They have some great community channels.  Their #LeagueOfLegends channel had 500 people in it when I checked!  Their #WoW channel had 40 people, #DayZ had 90, etc.  There's already a massive world-wide community that dwarfs Gamesurge.  So make sure you check out the other channels too.

Can I have ops/voice/whatever
Please don't ask. 

Can I idle?
Please do.

Can I run a fileserver?
Do not use #NexusLAN to advertise or facilitate any type of illicit activities.

Can I run a bot?
As long as it's not annoying and any associated commands do not start with '.' or otherwise interfere with "Q" or "PipBoy2000", the channels bots.

Do I need to attend a NexusLAN event to join the channel?
Feel free to join or invite anyone you think might fit the channel.  We're not limited to attendees only.

General rules:
Feel free to chat about LANs, gaming, hardware, or general life.
Use common sense.
If you use any kind of IRC scripts, please keep them reasonable.  IE: Spamming a channel with an MP3 script can get annoying pretty quickly.
Use common sense.
Don't take things personally.  It's easy to take things out of context. 
And use common sense.
