the #idevgames irc channel on freenode - TokyoDan - Dec 8, 2010 09:45 PM

When I try to get in the the #idevgames irc channel on freenode I get the following error:

"You need to identify with network services to join the room "#idevgames" on "chat.eu.freenode.net".

Server Details:
Cannot join channel (+r) - you need to be identified with services"

Why?
I'm using Colloquy on Mac and have no problem joining other IRC channels on freenode.

It's because #idevgames is very lame in that it requires you to be logged into a registered nickname on freenode, so you'll need to register a nickname on freenode (though it's a good thing to do anyway, because no one else will be able to use your nickname once it is registered).

Unfortunately, the channel is this way because we suffered some nasty attacks (multiple acquaintances of a member joining repeatedly and saying very offensive things).

Code:
/msg nickserv help

in general is a good thing to know. That'll explain how to register your nickname and set a password so that nobody else can steal it.
