Register on Mibbit

Register on Mibbit's website at This won't be the username you use in the IRC with us, it's just what you use to log into the site. There's no email confirmation or long pages of info to fill out.

Auto-Connecting to the IRC Server

Once you're logged in, click on Account at the top. Enter as the server. Then, enter nick-name you wish to use in the IRC with us, and put a password you will remember. Click add, and then be sure you hit Save and close.

Auto-Connecting to the Channel

Now click on Channels at the top. Enter as the server, #viridyan as the channel, and make sure you have Auto-connect checked. Click add, and then be sure you hit Save and close.

Registering Your Nickname

The only thing left now is to register your nickname on the channel. This is for security reasons, and so no one else on this IRC server can use your nickname. Once connected to the the #viridyan channel, type into the chat area:

/msg nickserv register PASSWORD EMAIL

When you type your password, make sure it's the same one you entered in the Account area! This is extremely important!
