    Since there are some people that cant figure out irc. Heres a graphical walkthrough.
    If you still cant do it, ask in here but these are easy to follow.

    I will lump all my walkthroughs under this post. I will cover connecting to irc (using mirc, sorry not going to cover every client), registering your nick, setting up preform so you will auto-login when you connect, and linking different nicks (incase you want to have a Work nick or a phone nick).

    Starting off with
    CONNECTING TO IRC:
    Follow the arrows in the pics, I made this easy to not require me to type anything :P

    Download and install mirc
    http://mirc.com
    Step 1:

    Step 5:
    3488878513_75bf3154e7_o.jpg

    Now we move onto:
    REGISTERING YOUR NICKNAME
    (just doing a copy-pasta of my earlier post)
    So... The Channel will be running with moderation on, anybody else who joins will need to register their nick and PM either me or moe to be added to the channel access list so you get auto-voiced so you can talk in the channel.
    Whenever I am in the channel ill be proactive for a while at PMing new people and walking them through the register process, for now heres some short instructions.

    Instructions:

    Go to the server window (depends what client you use) and type this:
    /msg nickserv register password email

    password = what password to register your nick under
    email = your email addy to recieve a confirmation #

    it will then ask you to do this:
    /msg nickserv auth code

    code = the code you got in your email

    Then when Every time you reconnect to slashnet you will need to type this
    /msg nickserv identify password

    password = the password you used to register your nick with

    Then you are all set :) Just be sure to PM me or moe on irc (whichever you see active) to get added to the access list.
    Or you can post in here asking to be added, we will check here too :)

    Next:
    LINKING NICKS TO YOUR REGISTERED ONE
    This is pretty simple. When you are logged into slashnet (and your nick is identified) all you have to do is type this:
    /msg nickserv link nickname
    nickname = the other nick you want linked
    so, I have my BigRed nick thats my registered one, then BigRed-Worky is linked to that.

    after you link a nick, when you login to slashnet. You will have to identify with the same password as your registered nick.

    You know, BigRed, this thread is quite old, if you wanted to start a new, up-to-date one with all your walkthrough info in the OP, I would support it.

    Dont do what parabola just did and join/quit over 10times, and spam the channel with nick changes asking for voice BEFORE reading the topic directing people to register their nicks then PM me.

    That will get you a tempban for spam, not voice :P

    Also, I'll set +n, which will prevent people from changing their nicks while in channel. Which will mostly just make BigRed rage more.

    as a PC gamer... do you really want me to answer that? lol

    I know theres a few mac users in the channel, not sure what clients they use though.
    I will add this to the walkthrough but you can always use mibbit
    http://www.mibbit.com/
    web based irc client
