Q: How can I connect on ChatNet ?

Finally, you can use ChatNet's DNS pool on ports 6660 - 6669 to connect on one of our current full linked servers. After connecting to the server it's recommended that you read the server's Message Of The Day with the command /motd. The motd is a document containing administrative and network information such as rules, guidelines, help channels etc. To get a list of the active channels type /list, to list speciffic channel names type /list *<text>* e.g. you need to find a bot loaning channel, the command would be /list *bot*.

Q: Where to report staff abuse ?

Q: Someone REALLY annoying keeps private messaging me. What can I do ?
A: You can either use your chat client's ignore option (consult your chat client manual for more information) or use the server silence command. Nicknames added to your silence list wont be able to message you. Usage example of the /silence command:
Syntax: /silence <+-nickname>
The + sign adds the given nickname to your silence list while the - sign removes the nickname if it is in the list. To display all nicknames added to your silence list, simply type /silence. The silence command supports wildcards and nick!user@host ignoring too.
Example1: /silence +ircfreak (adds ircfreak nickname to your silence list)
Example2: /silence -ircfreak (removes ircfreak nickname from your silence list)
Example3: /silence +*!*@* (adds the *!*@* mask to your silence list - anyone matching this mask will be blocked from messaging you)
Example4: /silence -*!*@* (removes the given nick!user@host mask from your silence list)
