IRC Cloud (Please read before using)
« on: September 04, 2018, 07:19:33 pm »
You can try out IRC Cloud instead of using one of the other chat services. As the board stated, there is some assembly required. That is why this is not simply a direct link. Also it is individualized for each user that uses the IRC Cloud service.


The link is simple:  www.irccloud.com


There is a phone app for both Android and Apple available as well. My testing of it shows that it is very stable, even more stable that Kiwi which is more stable than Mibbit.

Please note, there is a paid version of IRC Cloud, this is an individual payment, Rhemuth Castle does not get any of those funds at all. However, it does provide a few perks for connections. There is a 7 day free trial where you get all the perks of a paid subscription. After that is will convert to a standard free account. Don't feel obligated to purchase it unless you want too. I haven't purchased it myself.

This is what the screen looks like on the web, the mobile app is very similar as well.



There is a link near the top to log in if you already have an account (free or otherwise) with IRC Cloud.

But for some important information.

The 3 fields .... need a bit of explaining.
1) NAME - this field is visible when you are connected to the chat, it's not the NICK you go by in the chat but it is still viewable by any other user. It doesn't have to be your real name.
2) EMAIL - this needs to be a valid email address. IRC Cloud will send you a verification email to prove it too.
3) PASSWORD - this is the password for connecting to the IRC Cloud service.

Once you are connected to the IRC Cloud service and have verified your email. You will see a screen that looks like this one, and you will not yet be in the chat.



In the Hostname field. Please type in irc.otherworlders.org
The Port field can be left alone.
There is a place for your Nickname, this is what you are known as in the chat.
There is a place for full name, you can wipe it or change it as you desire.

Lastly there is a box for channels to join.
Type in #Deryni_Destinations

If you have a registered nickname on the chat, you can click the Advanced Options and enter that password in the appropriate box, if not you can ignore the Advanced Options for now. None of them are needed for the chatroom.

Finally click on the green Join Network button and you will be in the chat!
