NACHATROOM.ORG - Other Ways to Connect to Chat

Update July 20, 2018: Our bills with Amazon began skyrocketing to as much as $80 a month and donations were not covering it.

We have to lower our expenses. Right now we are temporarily testing running all of our stuff on a significantly less expensive hosting provider than Amazon. We don't know if it's robust or reliable enough to meet our needs yet. We're just going to have to monitor the situation and see if people can connect and stay connected as well as we did on Amazon. The tradeoff might just be that it's not quite as good but at least the site stays open. Some features you're all used to are acting a little goofy and need several hours worth of remediation work on the new server.

Thanks for your patience with anything that isn't working as expected. Please email us if you are completely unable to connect.

NOTICE: To avoid potential criminal liability under US Law H.R. 1865 chat.nachatroom.org is a closed IRC network. Creation of outside channels other than #nachatroom are banned by the server unless we have vetted and approved them. It will say "your class is not allowed." However if you run a 12-step group, want to run an NA chatroom in a language other than English, or any abstinence-focused recovery related group, you are welcome to use our server free of charge. You will need to email us to whitelist and create your channel and meeting chair bot (if you want one.) We have a one-line "iframe" you can embed in your website for chat.

HELP? WHY AM I BANNED?

Apple phones and tablets will disconnect every time you switch to another application. The only workaround is to use IRCCloud (see below).

If you don't know why you appear to be banned, email us at [email protected] It could be a mistake, or it could be someone who was being disruptive from the same internet service provider you're using.

TO REGISTER YOUR NICKNAME:

YOU DO NOT HAVE TO REGISTER! But we will ask ops and meetingchairs to do so.

If you want to use the password "october" and your email is [email protected], then type the following:

/msg nickserv register october [email protected]

TO LOG IN WITH YOUR NICKNAME USING MIBBIT:

If your nickname is registered, you can click on Fullscreen Chat and "If you have a registered nickname click here to log in."

Or you can go directly to https://login.nachatroom.org

You'll see a second "Password" box that isn't offered by default:

MOBILE/DESKTOP CLIENT

IRCCloud Desktop (Mac, Windows, Linux): Click here to download IRCCloud.

It's also available in the Apple App Store and Google Play for mobile devices.

After downloading IRCCloud, you can automatically configure it to connect to our room by clicking here

You need to have a registered nickname to use IRCCloud.

Type your nickname in the "Nickname" box and your password in the "NickServ password" box:

    DESKTOP USERS

    Do you keep getting disconnected by using your backspace key? In Firefox, you can download a plugin/addon called "DisableBackspaceNavigation" to stop that from happening anymore. Go to Tools -> Add-Ons and search for it.

    Visitors may have issues connecting with Internet Explorer in Windows XP/NT/98/2000, due to the fact that Microsoft will no longer update Windows XP to trust modern SSL certificates. Your browser will complain that our site is "insecure."

    It is your browser and operating system that are insecure. Please connect using the latest version of Firefox or Chrome available for your system instead of Internet Explorer.

    We do not use Java or Flash based apps, but you may need to use a modern browser capable of javascript, cookies, AJAX, and/or HTML5.

    THIRD PARTY IRC CLIENTS

    To connect to NACHATROOM.ORG with a third party IRC client (mIRC, xChat, BitchX, ircii, etc) use the following settings:

    PORT: 6697 (secure/encrypted/use SSL: "Yes")
