Okay I firmly admit that I am lost when it comes to IRC chat. It is saying that my nickname is not registered and I can't seem to figure out the help info. Anybody care to explain it in English? Pretty please?

Hi Hope! Hopefully I can try and help you with this issue. From what you've said it seems like your having trouble with registering your nick. So perhaps this might help.

1. Set up your irc client using the nickname you wish to register

2. Type /msg nickserv register [insert password here] [insert your e-mail here] (I suggest doing this in a non-public channel in case you mess up)

3. Once you recieve confirmation that your nick is register all you have to type is /ns IDENTIFY [your password]
See if that works! If it doesn't, you might try asking someone in #hol. I'm sure someone will be willing to help!

P.S. You might also check out the Ravenclaw guide here.
YAY Fumei! I love it!
