Stop IRC Bullying


Need to Know IRC Commands


       Type /join #channelname -- to join a channel of your choice
       Example:  /join #installgentoo


       The /me is an action message.
       Type /me 'does anything'
       Example:  /me waves hello


       Type /msg nickname (message) to start a private chat.
       Example:  /msg foobar Hey tat, how are you?


       /nick changes your nickname
       Example:  type /nick newnickname (limit 9 characters)


       Type /ping nickname.  What this command does is give you the ping time, or lag time, between you and the person you pinged.
       Lag can be explained as the amount of time it take for you to type your message and for others to read your messages.  
       Unfortunately, lag is always a part of IRC, although most times it's not a problem, just a nuisance.
       Example:  /ping luv2quilt


       Type /whois nickname to see a bit more information about another user.  You'll see what server another person is using, or 
       what their ISP is.  Pretty helpful when you don't recognize a nickname that wants to chat.  You may recognize the IP, (Internet 
       Protocol) and then feel more comfortable carrying on a conversation.  You'll also be able to see what other channels a person 
       is in, which might be a good indicator if you really want to talk with them or not.
       Example:  /whois bossmom


       There's one more very helpful command, and probably the one you'll use a lot when first starting out.  In fact, I still use it
       quite a lotType /help, you'll see the the mIRC Help Menu open up.  You can do a search from there, or you can type /help topic.
       Either way, a TON of information at your fingertips.
       Example: /help Basic IRC Commands
