So... I think I did this correctly...
It should just be registered as Rvanbergen...

Ok, I've never used a program-based IRC... program before, so I might be DOING IT WRONG, but it's saying I have to enter an authorization code from an email I didn't get.

I thought I would get it once you guys accepted me, but nope.

We do not run, nor are we associated with our IRC server in anyway. They merely host various channels for free.

See the OP and make sure you followed the steps for registering. On my head it does say you're registered, the only thing I can think of is you didn't bother to identify.

/msg nickserv identify [password]


Replace '[password] with the password you had selected. It's basically the same as logging in.

Yeah, I know how it's supposed to work, but when I did the whole /msg nickserv register [mypass] [mymail] thing, they said I had to go to an email they'd allegedly sent me and type in /msg nickserv AUTH [some code they'd sent me] to authenticate myself.

I've never had to do something like that before, so either I've done something wrong, or they've changed their policy again.

And by the way, those may not be the actual commands, as I've closed the program and had to type them in from memory.

Oh, for whatever reason, gmail has never, ever, even once, liked an IRC authorization request email. You should be able to find it tucked neatly away in your spam folder.

Sometimes the server will say it can take up to a week to get the email, but I've never had to wait more than a few minutes, so I'm betting it's just spammed away.

Well, I checked, and it's not there.
Also, I use hotmail, not gmail.

Have you registered with previously? If so, I have an idea as to why it's not working.

I almost can't remember the last time I did this, but that was in the online program. Does that make a difference?
