IRC Chat Changes – Users Now Require a LogIn Name to talk

chat-sidebarThe actions in this blog post have come in to immediate effect as of Thursday 14th August 2014

From Thursday 14th August, guests of the IRC Chat room on the RCD Radio Live Page, will be required a appropriate NickName to chat, the ZZZUSER-NUMBER (Example: ZZZUSER-3422) have been removed, when you are faced with the chat interface, you will be given a box to enter a nickname you would like to use in the IRC Chat.

There is a password box under the NickName box, but this is for users who have already registered their nickname for the chat room, if you enter using ZZZUSER-NUMBER-HERE you will not be able to talk, you will only be able to see the chat room  but wont be able to take part in the conversations.

Simply enter a nickname you would like to use, if you own that nickname on the IdleChat IRC Network, then enter the password for the account, if not, you can simply leave this blank, if you see the password box when you enter the chat room however and you don’t own that nickname, you will be required to change your nickname, to do that, simply click the menu button > Change NickName > Enter a new name > Click Submit.


We have applied this setting as extra protection for our users in our IRC Chat.

We have also released our brand new channel guidelines (Terms) which you can read by going to

NOTE: You must read the Channel Guidelines before entering the chat room, if you do not agree to our channel guidelines, you must not connect/join our chat room, if you are already in our chat room and do not agree to the terms, you must type /quit in the chat now to disconnect and you must not return.

If you have any concerns or need extra help getting in to the IRC Chat room, please either ask in the chat room (Unless you have problems getting on, then you obviously can’t do that) or you can contact us at

The Help section of RCD Radio are being built and they will include more on how to use our IRC Chat room, but for now, we are more than happy to answer questions by our contact page until our FAQ’s are released.
