    The Consortium IRC Channel

    As a replacement to our old beloved Shoutbox on the forums due to server hosting CPU capacity problems, we have created an Internet Relay Chat channel on the popular Quakenet IRC server.

    It's the perfect place to come if you are looking for answers to questions, want advice, enjoy chatting in real-time or simply want to kill time while at work.
    Anyways, if you are bored and want to talk to fellow members feel free to pop in and say hi

    • For those wanting to visit the channel via your Web Browser you can use Quakenet's WebChat (type in your forum nick and enter "#theconsortium" as the channel name.
    • For those wanting a more comfortable and advanced IRC experience I would recommend using the popular IRC client called mIRC (this is what I use).


    If you need help setting up either of the two, send me a PM and I would be happy to assist.
    [Note:] Many of you will notice when you use Webchat you will get disconnected after a while (or everything will go quite, no talking etc, then when you try talk you will be disconnected). This is known as a Ping timeout. Not much you can do against it, except move over to a proper IRC client such as mIRC.


    ================ UPDATE ==================
    I thought I would add some other irc channels on the Quakenet server that others might be interested in joining too.

    It's been a while since I used MIRC. Perhaps you could post a brief guide Sinshroud?

    Sure, it's actually very easy, normally can be setup nicely within a minute or two.

    [22:53] <Dizzy__> yeah I guess
    [22:53] <@Sinshroud> ok right well
    [22:53] <@Sinshroud> open up mirc if you have it
    [22:53] <@Sinshroud> then go to tools > options
    [22:54] <Dizzy__> yeah
    [22:54] <@Sinshroud> Click on the Connect tab and enter your desired details (I make my fullname same as my nick and type 'none' in email address for privacy)
    [22:54] * Dizzy_ (webchat@c-76-106-94-230.hsd1.md.comcast.net) Quit (Ping timeout)
    [22:55] <Dizzy__> k
    [22:55] <@Sinshroud> 1 sec
    [22:56] <@Sinshroud> typing out the instructions in wordpad quickly, cant type in mirc and view their options at the same time
    [22:56] <Dizzy__> lol
    [22:57] <@Sinshroud> Options (under connect) > Perform button
    [22:57] <@Sinshroud> Enable perform on connect
    [22:57] <@Sinshroud> Click the Add button, select Quakenet from the list and click ok.
    [22:57] <@Sinshroud> Then in the Perform Commands window type: '/j theconsortium' without the ' ' (this will automatically make you join the channel when you connec to mirc)
    [22:58] <@Sinshroud> Go back up a bit and click on Servers from the list on the left, then find Quakenet folder amongst the new list of IRC Servers. Then click on which ever quakenet server most suits you.
    [22:58] <@Sinshroud> (do that last step when you finished with the preform commands etc
    [23:01] * Dizzysmooshr (none@c-76-106-94-230.hsd1.md.comcast.net) has joined #theconsortium
    [23:01] <@Sinshroud> there we go

    Is there a way to hang in GameSurge and QuakeNet at the same time?

    If you are using mIRC client, you should be able to go file > Recent Servers > New Server Window and open a second server connection.
