A handful of friends of mine have been using this old IRC channel for a couple of decades now and unfortunately the population of this once flourishing protocol has harshly diminished and our little “community” with it. We were doing fairly alright for a long time though, no one was bothering us much so keeping the channel under control without network support wasn’t an issue.
It has now become an issue. Unfortunately we do not have the body count to register the channel and gain proper protection in it and that’s where I’m hoping a few of you guys might be willing to help. I need at least 4 people willing to come join me on IRC, register a username with the network in question and in a few days time support my bid to register the place. It may then take about a week for the application to be processed during which time I would require you to join the channel and at least periodically say something.
I will need at least 4 people who will need an IRC client, connect to one of undernet’s servers, Budapest.HU.EU.UnderNet.org is the one that’s worked best for me and join the channel #D&D. Register an account at https://cservice.undernet.org/ and then finally not screw me over by rejecting the supporter role later down the line.
One additional thing, once you are connected you need to log into X, the network’s channel management service by typing out
/msg X@channels.undernet.org login <username> <password>
UNLESS you’re using the webchat in which case there’s a checkbox “Login using services” which allows you to input your account details to do it on connect. This doesn’t seem to work.
While it doesn’t matter where you type it I’d suggest using the system window just in case you fuck it up you send your login credentials to a public channel. Something someone did today, because he couldn’t figure out that quotation marks should probably not be included.
Once the registration is confirmed I don’t think there’s any need for you to stick around, though I wouldn’t mind if you did. Thank you.
