For the last few months Irc has been getting alot of spam from People wanting invites ect this has now got to the point where we need to control it.
Due to this we have set the main Channel to Members only to join this channel you need to Click on your username at the top of the page and then Click edit Profile.
Look down and your see IRC Options Click Enable IRC Access (Generate Key) then Save at the bottom of the page your see then that the system has made you a key.
Now join IRC like you Normaly would and Type /msg tl-monkey !invite YOURKEYHERE. Your then be joined to the main members Channel
(Make sure to user your SITE username or it will not invite you)
