So most of our users are on/have been on IRC at some point, but it's always good to have a nice little IRC topic to remind everyone that the channel is still alive and available for bot conversations and slapping Outrack with trouts.

Also available at #ashtear and #rawr at irc.striked.org:6667-6669, +6697 on your favourite IRC client of choice!

If there's anything you'd like me to add, please feel free to PM/IRC/scream outside my window!  :sparkle:

Basic IRC commands
Here are some basic IRC commands you can use while in the chat. All IRC clients with a GUI (webchat included) will have more options when you right click a user on the userlist, but these are the main and important ones to know!

/nick
Usage: /nick MyUsername
Type this to change your username to a new one. There is a character limit but I can't remember what that is!
This will show up as: *** Lexy is now known as PooFace

/msg nickserv register or /ns register
Usage: /msg nickserv register mypassword myemail@email.com
This will result in these messages:
-NickServ- Nickname MyUsername registered under your account: Mynick@Myhost.com
-NickServ- We would like to verify the validity of your e-mail address.
-NickServ- An e-mail has been sent to myemail@email.com with instructions on how to finish the authentication process.

Doing this will register your name with the server, allowing you to prevent others from using that nickname, and if anyone wants to give you powers in a channel, to keep those powers!

/msg nickserv identify or /ns identify
Usage: /msg nickserv identify mypassword
This will result in this message: -NickServ- Password accepted - you are now recognized.
This identifies you as the owner of the current nick. Once you change into that nick, you will have 60 seconds to identify yourself, otherwise, your nick will be changed.

/me
Usage: /me slaps Outrack around a bit with a large trout
This is an 'action' message! You can use this to slap people around or generally whatever actions you would do!

/msg or /query
Usage: /msg Outrack hay or /query Outrack pls
This will send a private message to the user. I don't know what the difference between /msg and /query are. I should, but I don't.

/join
Usage: /join #rawr
This will allow you to join a new channel.
This will show up as: *** Lexy has joined #RAWR

/part
Usage: /part #rawr (part message)
This will make you leave the channel, with an optional part message.
This will show up as: *** Lexy has left #RAWR (I don't like it in here)

/quit
Usage: /quit (quit message)
This will disconnect you from the server, with an optional quit message
This will show up as: *** Lexy has quit (Quit: I don't like this server)

/msg nickserv ghost
Usage: /msg nickserv ghost nick password
This will disconnect the nick from the server and allow you to take it over. This is useful in situations with crappy internet and instead of having multiple clones of you that are waiting to time out, you can just forcibly kick them off
This will show up as: *** Lexy has quit (Quit: GHOST command used by Pants) I don't actually remember the real message sorry but it's something to that effect

/whois
Usage: /whois Outrack
This will get information about a certain nick, like Nick's nick.

Secure IRC connections
Even if you're not internet paranoid, it is a good idea to use a secure IRC connection. Although it is unlikely that anyone will be infiltrating your connection from the server side, other organizations on the client side may not be so safe. You can read more about secure IRC connections using SSL here.

Though this is not required for a connection to Striked, it adds +1 to your internet security, and also an extra line to your whois-penis, so if you /whois yourself, it will have /nick is using a secure connection.

Webchat is already on a secure webpage (as indicated by the https://), so although it won't actually display that when you're whoised, you are still on a secure connection.

I will only post instructions on how to set this up on mIRC, and I am going to assume you are smart enough to google <your IRC client> SSL connection otherwise. If you have any issues please feel free to PM/IRC/scream outside my window.

Striked's SSL-capable server is at irc.striked.org:+6697

Set Up
Note: most of this is just paraphrased from mIRC's secure IRC connections page.

To set up your mIRC to be able to establish secure connections through SSL, first you need to install openSSL. You can grab openSSL 1.0.1e from here: openssl-1.0.1e-setup.exe

Install it as normal. If you install it in the default system32 directory, it will be usable by all applications. Alternatively, if you install it in the mIRC directory, it will only be available for mIRC.

If your mIRC is already running, quit and restart it. It should automagically detect openSSL. To check it's been installed, go to Options > Connect > Options. The SSL button should be available.

Now, connect to Striked's secure server by doing /server -e irc.striked.org:+6697 (the -e is optional; including it will open a new server window on top of your current connection, leaving it out will restart your current connection). Somewhere along the connect dialogue, there will be this:
-irc.striked.org- *** You are connected to irc.striked.org with TLSv1.2-AES256-GCM-SHA384-256bits
To doubly confirm this, do a /whois on yourself. You should now see this line:
YourNick is using a Secure Connection

And you are good to go :sparkle:

Windows IRC clients
Disclaimer: I am not here to help you set these up. I am just providing this list of clients that I compiled from lists on the internet to help you decide what client to use.

Here's a bunch of decent IRC clients for windows. Personally I've only used mIRC but I'm sure the others aren't that much different. This list is by no means exclusive or exhaustive, and if you have any other clients you'd like me to include, send me a PM/IRC and I will!

I'm sure all of these can be customized, so don't assume that what you see in the screenshots is what you get. I believe all of these are free, with the exception of the mIRC splash screen. However, if you really like your client, donate! How else are you going to keep getting new updates?

(These aren't my screenshots)

mIRC - http://www.mirc.com/
Getting started     Help     SSL with mIRC
(click to show/hide)
Free for 30 days, and usable afterwards with a splash screen. Alternatively, if you really like the program and would like to pay for a license, it is $20 and will last you a lifetime. (IMO it's worth it because it's a great program, and I've been using it for 6~7 years)

XChat - http://xchat.org/
Quick Start Guide     FAQ     XChat SSL tutorial (except with irc.striked.org:+6697)
(click to show/hide)
SSL Libraries are installed with Xchat so there are no extra steps needed. You will have to configure it to connect to irc.striked.org:+6697, otherwise it will connect to port 6667 (unsecured) by default.

Here's a bunch of IRC clients for Mac. I've never used any of these so I can't provide any personal help. Sorry!

I'm sure all of these can be customized, so don't assume that what you see in the screenshots is what you get. I am not totally sure if all of these are free or not?

I believe SSL support is available for all of these, you will just have to connect to irc.striked.org:+6697 for a secure connection.

Here's a bunch of decent IRC clients for Linux. I use Irssi and I like it, but it has quite a steep learning curve.

I'm sure all of these can be customized, so don't assume that what you see in the screenshots is what you get. I am not totally sure if all of these are free or not? (You may have to pay for a license eventually)

Seriously, come hang out with us on IRC.  We are ridiculously fun.

Also using IRC makes you a super hacker or something.

mIRC Tips and Tricks
Since we have some new IRC friends, I thought it would be neato to write up a short tutorial on how to do some neat things in mIRC.

Auto-identify
You must first register your nickname, otherwise this whole section is moot. Instructions are posted here.

To set up auto-identify, click on Options (Tools > Options). Under the Connect section, select Options, and click on the button on the right side called Perform.

Ensure 'Enable perform to connect' is checked. Striked may be in the Network: dropdown menu, but if it's not, click Add to add it. If Striked doesn't show up on that list, add it by going into Connect > Servers > Add, and put in the information that I have listed here (and add another one for secure server).

Make sure you have Striked in the Network: dropdown. In the box under Perform Commands:, type the commands that you want mIRC to execute as soon as you connect to the server, like sending a message to Nickserv to identify. To do this, add the following command:
/msg nickserv identify yourpasswordhere

Click OK to save the perform, and OK again in Options to save options.



Highlight
Highlighting allows your name (or any word or phrase) to be in a different colour/make an audible beep when your name (or word or phrase is said).

To set up highlight, click on Address Book (Tools > Address Book), and select the Highlight tab. Ensure 'Enable highlight' is checked.

Click Add, and fill in the boxes to your desire.
Click OK to save, and OK to save the address book.



Timestamp and Quit Message
Adds a timestamp for irc messages, useful for 'I said it first's, and a quit message for when you quit the server

To add timestamps, go to Options (Tools > Options), under the IRC section, select Messages. Ensure 'Timestamp events' is checked, and add the following line to it:
[HH:mm:ss] (you can remove the seconds part of you don't want it to be that precise)

You can also add a quit message where it says quit message, and optionally a finger reply when someone fingers you.
