I know it says how to do it in the Guide, but I really don't get it. Can someone please explain?
The easiest way to do it is to use Mibbit, which is explained in the chat guide. What particular section are you having trouble with?
#1: Type http://mibbit.com/ into your URL bar.
#2: Click 'Launch App', it is in the middle of the page, right of the frog, and below 'Sign up free'.
#3: Click the 'Connect' drop down list, and scroll to #SynIRC, and click it.
#4: Type the username you would like to use, and join channel #Watch.
(note, you can actually join any channel, this is just a placeholder for the next step)
#5 Say /msg nickserv register PASSWORD EMAIL
(where it says PASSWORD, type in the password you would like to have, where it says email, type in your email)
#6 You may need to wait a short while, but eventually you will receive a registration code in your email. Message nickserv this registration code. (at this point, you may need to say /msg nickserv identify PASSWORD, I can't recall if it automatically signs you in the first time)
#7 Say /j #site19
If you have additional problems with registration, you can say /j #help to join the help channel.
How long does the registration code usually take? said it was sending at 18:50 and it's now 20:15..
Did you check your junk mail? Made sure the e-mail was correct?
Living the dream, or dreaming the life?
Checked junkmail, nothing. Email is definitely correct too. Are there any address types mibbit doesn't play nice with?
Using an @hotmail.co.uk account on Outlook. Any reasons it wouldn't send?
Also using Firefox, don't know if this is relevant.
If you are having trouble receiving the registration code, join channel #help.
I'll look into that tomorrow, just incase it's just taking a long-ass time for it to mail me this code.
Thanks for the help : )
EDIT: Problem solved, it just took a very long time for the code to be sent.
