Here's how to effectively use IRC:

Our IRC channels are #hrwiki and #hrwiki-rc. They can be accessed through chat.hrwiki.org, although it is recommended that you use an IRC client.

[edit] Contacting an operator

If there is flooding, spamming, or another form of vandalism going on in #hrwiki or #hrwiki-fanstuff, it's best to contact an operator as soon as possible, so he can deal with the offender. Operators are sysops that also help take care of our IRC channels.

[edit] General Commands

Message Action
/join <channel name> Opens a window connecting you to the specified channel.
/nick <nickname> Changes your nickname to the new name specified in <nickname>
/msg <username> <message text> Sends a private message to the user specified in <username>
/me <action> Prints a message in the chat room that says you are performing the given action specified in <action>
/quit [<message>] Closes your connection and exits your IRC client, optionally displaying <message> as you quit. The quit message may not display for some clients on freenode.
/part [<channel>] [<message>] or /leave [<channel>] [<message>] Causes you to leave only the channel you're in (in some IRC clients), or the channel specified with <channel>, with optional part message <message>.

[edit] NickServ

In some IRC clients, "/msg NickServ" can be shortened to "/ns". Some IRC network administrators recommend using "/ns" as it prevents malicious users from possibly obtaining passwords or other information in the case of an attack on an IRC network.
Message Action
/msg NickServ GHOST <nickname> <password> Reclaims use of a nickname.
/msg NickServ GROUP Configures a "group" of nicknames all owned by and for use by you. These "groups" normally consist of variations of you main nickname. For example, one could have "NASA" and "NASA|Away" in a group.
/msg NickServ UNGROUP [nickname] Removes a nickname from your group.
/msg NickServ IDENTIFY [nickname] <password> Identifies to services for a nickname.
/msg NickServ INFO <nickname> Displays information on registrations.
/msg NickServ LISTCHANS Lists channels that you have access to.
/msg NickServ REGISTER <password> <email address> Registers a nickname.
/msg NickServ SET <command> <parameters> Sets various control flags.
/msg NickServ RELEASE <nickname> [password] Releases a services enforcer.
/msg NickServ DROP <nickname> <password> Makes NickServ remove a nickname owned by you. If this nickname is a part of a group, this will not drop the group; only the nickname specified from the group.
/msg NickServ HELP <command> [parameters] Displays help information on all commands.
/msg NickServ LOGOUT Logs you out of the account that you are currently logged into.
/msg NickServ TAXONOMY <nickname> Lists metadata information associated with registered users.

[edit] MemoServ

In some IRC clients, "/msg MemoServ" can be shortened to "/ms". Some IRC network administrators recommend using "/ms" as it prevents malicious users from possibly obtaining memos or other information in the case of an attack on an IRC network.
Note: All operations involving a given channel must have you as AUTOOP access or higher.
