Post subject: MUST READ ! CHAT ROOM CHANGES. Live Scoreboard/Chat directioReply with quote


Thanks to Mike, we have a new, more reliable and user friendly chat room. Please read the directions below to update your settings, particularly IRC settings.

Here are a few rules and directions on how to use the Scoreboard Chat.

No profanity : Sorry, we know it's stressful during a game, but Daics will eject you (1st offense 30 sec ban, repeated offenses, permanent ban) if your fingers slip.

No Personal Abuse : If you don't agree with a persons opinion, say so, but don't blow it up into WW3.


Just click on the "chat" link any of the Nicks website pages.
A page with the scoreboard on top will be generated, this contains a Java chat room.
XP users will find that they have no Java chat capability. Please go to:
download and install Java VM. (virtual machine)

A small window will appear wanting you to "run and install irc applet" from the "jpilot software company". Please tick the box "always trust software from jpilot" so that you do not get this window each time you log in. Insert your username in the box that has "guest" in it. Click "Connect Now" and your in!!
To register your nick type;
/nickserv REGISTER password password emailaddress
Press "enter"
2 times for your password and then your email address.
You will recieve an E-mail with instructions on how to confirm your nickname.
If you wish to change your nickname during chat, please type;
/nick newname , then press enter, where "newname" is your new nickname.

For those who prefer to use Mirc or Pirch here are the details;
port: 6667
room: #pies_chat

Mirc can be downloaded from:
Pirch can be downloaded from:

Private Chat;

If you wish to have a debate, or just a private chat with an individual, please double click on that persons username in the R/H column. This will open a separate chat box. The person you wish to talk to must also double click on your name in the R/H column to private chat or else the whole room will see one side of the conversation.


Please note that if you use Mirc, Pirch or come to the room through any other method, you will not have the benefit of the scoreboard. To overcome this, please go to;
Click on the the "Live Scoreboard" link that uppears under the banner on the L/H side. Do NOT click on the "Live Scoreboard Chat" link.
The "Live Scoreboard" link will produce a small window containing only the scores, clock and goalkickers. This board can be moved to anywhere on your screen.


Please note that during a game a running commentary will be given. It helps
if not too many people join in the commentating. Feel free to continue chatting,
cheering and celebrating during the commentary.

Speakers ON!

Please make sure you have your speakers on and Real Player installed at the end of the game. When the Pies win, you will be treated to the best song in the history of mankind!

The chatroom is open 24/7. If you wish to chat about anything, come on in. If no-one is in there, don't despair! The longer you stay in there, the more chance someone else will wander in.

The Virtual Outer welcomes all MAGPIE fans from around the globe.
