The main area doesn't tend to get used much. We have a separate chatroom for approved members that tends to get the activity. You need to register and talk to an OP to get access there.
You can find all the information about how to do that and about IRC in the Tutorial
I'm having a problem getting into separate chatroom for approved members. I think it may be a browser (Firefox 27.0.1 on Windows 8) issue. Could someone please provide some t/s assistance?
My first indication of problems is that my screenshot doesn't look like the one in the Tutorial. The Support and Links tabs do not exist in my browser.
The real obvious evidence of a problem, though, is that when I select the IRC Chat tab, there is no box to put in a nick and no Connect button to use.
I'd appreciate any assistance. Thanks.
