City of Titans Chat

IRC CHANNEL LOCATION:
#cityoftitans on irc.SynIRC.net network.

Channel Link
irc://irc.synirc.net/cityoftitans

What's IRC?
IRC (Internet Relay Chat) is a medium through which many online communities like rpgmaker.net run chat rooms. By getting onto IRC you can meet and talk to many of the people from CityofTitans.com in live chat!
Cityoftitan's IRC channel is #cityoftitans on irc.synirc.net network.

How to Join
IRC is absolutely free, but you'll need to get an IRC client to begin chatting.

Mibbit
Easy as heck to access, and you can sign up to save channels. Free to use!
mIRC
The most popular option, mIRC is free to use, though you can pay to register if you like.
HydraIRC
Another popular client, though less so than mIRC. More popular with those experienced with IRC.
Colloquy
for Macs. Because Apple users need to feel special and unique. This is also an app for iPhone!
Opera
this web browser has a built-in IRC chat client. Very convenient!

For starting up in mIRC, you'll see an intro prompt with some dude's face on it. Wait a few seconds, then hit the Continue option to reach the login dialogue.
Enter as much information about yourself as you're comfortable doing. You'll at least need a 'nickname' or nick in order to connect to IRC, similar to how you would have to register a name on the site to get an account and do things. You can fill in more details such as your real name or e-mail address, but unless you're comfortable with giving that information to a stranger, you shouldn't write more than what's required.
After writing who you are, you need to write where you'll go (in the Servers tab within the mIRC Options dialogue.) Select the SynIRC network and connect to that. In case you can't select SynIRC from your options, you can give the address of the network as irc.synirc.net. Click the Connect button and you should connect to the network in less than a minute.
The channel, or chatroom, of cityoftitans.com is called #cityoftitans. To join the channel, wait until you're fully connected to SynIRC (You'll be connected when you see a Message of the Day from the network), then type the command /join #cityoftitans and enter it to join. You'll finally be in our chatroom after all this!

What Next?
In case you don't like your nickname, you can change it with the command:
/nick "whatever"
Eventually you'll want to register your nickname, so that people can identify it with you and nobody else can use it. To register a nickname, type "/ns register password e-mail address"
Your e-mail address is usually unimportant, but your password is very important. Every time you log on and use your registered nickname, you'll need to give your password or your nick will be automatically changed.
You can sign on with your password with the command "/ns identify password"
When chatting with mIRC, you can use several commands to format your text for everybody who reads it. Type CTRL+U to underline or CTRL+B to bold, and type it again to remove the formatting. Type CTRL+K to color your text, using a comma and a second number to create a background color behind your text. Type CTRL+O to cancel all previous formatting. Bear in mind that all of this formatting needs to be on the same line as the text you want to format.
Eventually, you can use the mIRC help file (and the help of others on #cityoftitans) to set up special options, such as automatically identifying with your password and joining #cityoftitans after connecting, rather than typing the commands every time. Or, you might be prepared to use a more advanced IRC client that provides a greater number of options and customization, such as HydraIRC.

Happy chatting!

Actually, you don't have to sign up to use Mibbit. I could access the channel without doing so although, to be honest, I didn't pay enough attention to see if that was some kind of limited trial feature. I don't believe it is. I signed up mainly so I could save the TPP channel, rather than having to re-enter the information every time I want to get on.

mIRC is saying it's only free

mIRC is saying it's only free for thirty days, then 20 dollars to purchase.

You could use it and see if

You could use it and see if it actually locks you out after 30 days. Some programs actually do so while others rely on an honor system (and constant reminders). But, yes, that was the main reason I decided to go with using Mibbit rather than mIRC.

mIRC doesn't lock you out.

mIRC doesn't lock you out. You keep on getting the pop up though reminding you purchase it when you do start it up.

It works. But so do a lot of the other IRC clients out there. I actually moved over to KVirc recently and am enjoying that

I used to use some IRC client

I used to use some IRC client years ago (vIRC maybe?) in like 2000-2004. The chat rooms at that time were basically a medium through which people did peer-to-peer file sharing and as such it was all an huge MP3 ripfest. The channel chat was literally scrolling so fast you couldn't read it, not that you wanted to, as it was all either requests for songs or ads for playlists people had.

Personally, I'm still waiting for them to make a client called "twIRC" :)
