Network Policies and Info (THE RULES!) / Other Issues
« Last post by TNTease on January 13, 2017, 08:32:38 PM »
From time to time chatters may be warned for various behaviors not specified in the AUP.  While we try to cover most disallowed issues in the AUP, sometimes it becomes necessary to highly moderate other unspecified behavior, usually because such continued behavior can quickly become negatively disruptive in the channel.  Some of the recent issues that fall into this category are as follows:

Harassing or insulting other chatters for behavior on another network (if it didn't happen here, don't bring it here, please).
Posting links to sexual or otherwise inappropriate videos/websites (this is not a sex network).
Repeatedly complaining about another network to the point that it becomes annoying (moderators have discretion on this).
Posting false negative information about other chatters (this can be considered harassment).
Posting someone's personal or allegedly personal information into the channel (such as real name, address, phone numbers, or other personal situation information).
Repeatedly posting your own personal information (this is for your protection).
Posting logs of private conversations (if it was private, it was probably not intended to be made public, and if you don't want to read it in your private, please take action to block the other party from privatizing you, or do not respond to the private message(s)).

Some elements of these issues are filtered by the various systems of the network.  Most will often be dependent on the actions of the moderator if there is an active moderator in the room, or if there is an IrcOp or Admin who sees the offense. Actions for these issues may range from channel warnings, kicks and bans to network bans.

If the same chatter is known for repeating the same type of misbehavior, having been warned on several occassions for it, they may glined without warning.
Network News & Announcements / "Flash Policy" problems
« Last post by TNTease on January 12, 2017, 05:33:42 PM »
Hi all,

Some chatters have been having problems connecting from the webchat and getting a message about the Flash Policy needing updating or something.
We have been investigating the issue, and it seems to be an issue with recent versions of the flash client. No need to get into the technical stuff, but basically,
it seems they've altered it so it does not work well for chatting through.  We have made some temporary changes to work around it, and are considering a more
permanent change as soon as possible to make it easier for chatters to connect through the website again.

Until then, if you have trouble getting in on the regular website, try

Thanks, ICQ-Chat Team

Update: some changes have been implemented. For some of the channels (the ones that get traffic, basically), you will see two options to log in.  The top one is the flash client you're used to using.  If you can't get online that way, choose the bottom login window - it is a different client so you should be able to get in through it. To use it, put in the nick you want to use and click connect.  If you check the "Login to services" box it will ask you for a password, but at present the password part isn't working properly, so you need to identify to your registered nick once you are connected.

Network News & Announcements / How To Connect to ICQ-Chat without using the website
« Last post by TNTease on November 02, 2016, 06:39:53 PM »
Most people connect to the chat network here either through our website ( or with an IRC client on their computer. (mIRC, AdiIRC, or any one of many others).  What if you don't have an IRC client on your computer, or for some reason you cannot have one on your computer?  There are a few other ways.

An online IRC Client --- this is an IRC Client (program) that is online, and you just connect through it as if it were on your computer.

go to
click on the "try me" button
put in the nickname you want to use, and the channel you want to chat in (most people seem to like #chat), and if your nick is registered, check the 'I have a password' and there will be a place to put in your password for your nickname.
then before you click on the Start button, click on 'Server an Network' (it's in tiny blue text below the Start button)
two more boxes will pop up.  for Server: put in and for port: put in 6667
leave "ssl" unchecked.
Now click the Start button.

It will take a moment to connect.

(Thanks to Trump2016 --- the chatter, not the presidential candidate! lol)

1. Point your browser to
2. Under "Mibbit WebChat" click the "Launch Mibbit Client" button.
3. At the next screen, click the drop down menu labeled "Connect" and scroll down to select " [webirc]."
4. Enter your preferred chat name in the "Nick" box.
5. Enter the channel you'd like to connect to in the "Channel" box.  Most people start out in the #CHAT channel.
6. Click the "Connect" button and wait for the server to connect.
7. Enjoy your chat! :)

(Here is a more direct link to connect though mibbit:
Should take you right into #chat without filling out all the info.)

Point your browser to :
and you can stay connected, chat from anywhere, and never miss a message with IRCCloud
you need to registere there as first step
then follow the instructions to finish the registration, when you done, you will be ready to connect
when you "LogIn" with your account from the servers list click on our server addy it's already listed there
then do your own setting such as Nick, Password to do IDENT etc.. when you done!!
