This thread is long overdue. Though, please, before you respond to a question in this thread, double check that you know what you're talking about, that you have the time and the gumption to write an unbiased well thought out comprehensive answer.

Why is it that even though I went to the EfNet website, I can't get into IRC? #wtfcom is still the place I go to, right?

Yes, it's still EFNET and still #wtfcom.

You're likely having issues connecting to the server and thus not able to then select a channel. Some cell phone providers are banned from certain IRC Servers, so it's very much hit and miss.

There should be a lot more than that. Nothing more shows up after 1 minute or so?

Oh, and that irc thing is entirely the wrong Network. You need an EFNet one, not this mental QuakeNet series...

I tried mIRC...I can't afford the cost of the damn thing right now.

Oh well, if I can't get in I can't get in. Thanks for the help though.

Well kik is not the same as irc, and there is a way to get around registering mIRC I just don't remember off the top of my head.

I know it's not the same. But that's about all I know.:)

I just had so many ridiculous stupid troubles hangin' me up in IRC, I honestly lost interest and I was bummed. And beyond that, once I get there, I'm like Fuck yOooo.lol. I won't go back and try again. I have too much shit going on. But, yeah, that blows.~Maybe during slower times, personally, I'd have had more patience, so don't take offense.:)

The old version of mIRC used to let you just continue past the option to register; however, with the new version it doesn't give you this option. If a person wants to they can download the old version of mIRC at www.oldversion.com and not have to worry about registering.

Thank you! :D

Sorry about having a min-fit over that.

Helping someone troubleshoot an issue is all fine and good but DO NOT post "workarounds" for circumventing a software's registration.

edit: There is also a lot of helpful information here: http://www.wtf.com/pages/chat/

There's a time limit on how long regular users can edit a post so not just anybody can go and delete all of their posts, thereby leaving huge holes in threads, making them into bigger trainwrecks than they already are. If the edit option has been removed from a post, private message a moderator of that particular forum, state your case, ask nicely, and throw in some tit pics to offset the disappointment.
