Thread: Connecting to WiiHacks IRC

    Connecting to WiiHacks IRC




    ***This tutorial is just the most basic way for you to join IRC, nothing more.***


    ***You must accept the forum rules before accessing IRC in order to get "voice", you accept the rules at your profile page. If you do not do this, you will be unable to chat.**

    [SPOILER=Rules of IRC]

    1. Please read BluPhant's thread on the WiiHack's channel bot Luigi here for necessary information to enjoy your stay in IRC.
    2. Forum nicks only, any other will result in a automatic kick/ban.
    3. Do not PM Ops or any other user without prior permission.
    4. No support for cheating and pirating.
    5. PG-13 rated language, if you must act like a drunken sailor, go elsewhere.
    6. No flaming, cursing, stalking, harassing or anything deemed unacceptable will not be tolerated and will result in a ban.
    7. No posting of youtube links on modding, or links to other forums, it will result in a immediate kick from the channel.
    8. Do not come into IRC expecting to be spoon-fed, search the forum first and foremost!
    9. IRC is for asking a quick question or two, NOT for hand-holding because of your inability to read/understand the guides here on the forum.

    Fail.

    So I have somehow been banned while trying to join. I followed the ChatZilla instructions and missed the registering my nick (bazkaz) and joined the channel where Luigi promptly kicked me. I went back and registered my nick then tried to rejoin and found I was banned. I then created a second nick (bazkaz29), which I now know is against the rules, and registered the nick then joined the channel... where Luigi kicked me and told me to register in the forum... so I registered both nicks as forum names, came back and tried both and found I was banned for both names. So I came and tried to reply to this thread and the agreement that I had to agree to came up, which I agreed to on the bazkaz29 account... so I tried to login one more time and am still banned.

    I don't want two IRC nicks or two forum nicks for that matter... I just wanted to register and be able to chat in IRC so I can get some help with my Wii. Anything you can do to help clear this up would be appreciated.

    Thanks
    - Baz
