Feel like trying something new? - Internet Relay Chat (IRC) is a text based multi-user communications system. Around 25% of our user base is currently logged into our main IRC chat-room, called #BTN, discussing a wide range of topics 24/7. Its a no pressure place to hang out where you're free to just sit and watch the various discussions and participate when and if you feel like doing so, its PG-13 rated and moderated, meaning Staff will stop people discussing topics or linking images or websites that are inappropriate for a PG-13 environment.
BTN Staff are available via IRC in real time to talk to, and our friendly Front-Line-Support (FLS) team is ready to help you with any questions or problems you may have relating to BTN.
If you're not sure how to set IRC up, we have several articles in the Knowledge Base walking you through how to both setup and connect the most popular IRC-Programs to our IRC system.
As another benefit for being connected to our #BTN IRC Channel, you'll also receive Bonus Points just for being there!
We also run impromptu competitions in IRC from time to time; from easy things like guessing a number between 1 and 3, a quiz, or taking a picture of something creative.. These are a great way to get some extra Bonus Points, Upload GB etc..
For example, whoever comes into IRC in the next 15 minutes and says !MOD I LOVE BTN IRC! will receive 10K BPs
