    5 Reasons why you should join our IRC channel

    Reason #1: IRC gives you a direct line to staff. There is almost always at least one staff member in IRC. This means no wait times to discuss problems.

    Reason #2: You get to give input on future development. The forums also allow this but IRC is a much better mode of communication. It allows me to receive immediate feedback on potential changes to the shard. I often ask players in IRC for advice. If you would like to give your input on future changes, join IRC today!

    Reason #3: Players often share spawns and other valuable information in IRC. If there is a champion spawn, someone will let you know. If someone has found a RDA (random dungeon adventure), they may just share that information. IRC is the place to be if you are keen to participate in these types of events.

    Reason #4: Get to know your fellow player. IRC is a great place to interact with other people playing the shard. Chat up some of those pesky PKs, maybe they will cut you some slack :)

    Reason #5: You are allowed to buy and sell goods in our IRC channel. So, if you are looking to unload something fast or pick up that sweet wearable at a good price, our IRC channel is the place to be.

    Feel free to post your own reasons below!

    Guide to joining IRC

    There are several IRC clients you can utilize to join our IRC channel. I will give a brief rundown on the one I use: Hexchat.

    To download Hexchat go here: Hexchat

    Once you have Hexchat installed, and then click Hexchat at the top-left of the window. Here is where you will choose your IRc nick and connect to our iRC channel's network.

    Our channel information is as follows:

    Network: Geekshed
    Channel: #uoforever

    Once you have connected to the geekshed network, type /join #uoforever in the input bar located at the bottom of the hexchat window.

    Once in the channel, you will notice that you are unable to talk. This is because your IRC nick is not registered.

    Here is a guide on how to register your nickname: mIRC Nickname Registration Guide

    You should also give this post a read for further help on joining mIRC: UOF and mIRC. If you require further help joining IRC, don't hesitate to page for me in-game!

    Rules of IRC are STRICT - We can not monitor the chat 24/7 but all lobby chat is logged. If you see people breaking these rules please send us a pm and when we get to it we will handle it.

    RULES FOR #UOFOREVER CHANNEL

    Scamming players through the use of IRC is bannable both in game and IRC!

    IRC is NOT your personal soapbox keep the drama in a Private Message

    Do not use this channel to produce negative attitudes towards the server/staff/players if you have an issue with the server contact the staff.

    No advertising any other server of any kind this includes script websites.

    Racial slurs is an instant ban.

    Trolling, FLAMING or personal attacks will not be tolerated. Keep your childish name calling to yourself.

    FURTHER RULES CAN BE READ HERE!!! http://www.uoforum.com/threads/patch-notes-january-13th-2014.25285/

    Failure to follow these rules will result in banned from IRC.

    IRC is a privledge.


    If there is a user you would like to report please message the IRC mods; Shane, JoeB, Eppy, and Liberty. they will look into it.

    Yep. There's 5 reasons you should join the irc.... Kind of the name of the thread and first post...

    Also it's great for real time discussion about all the latest rap hits from our very own members. Isn't that sick?

    I had an issue with my account last night and within 5 minutes the gms were on it, and pretty much fixed it because I was in IRC.
    I have never ever played any game that has had a staff this supportive over the community.
