Unmoderated. Uncensored. Freedom.

Before you connect:

This is an IRC network. If you are not familiar with them, this quick guide will be of great use to you. IRC stands for Internet Relay Chat, and is the oldest form of multi-user text based conversations (read- multiplayer notepad) still around. As such, it's a bit archaic. You need to know a few commands to get around here. I will list those commands here.

Just type these in where you would normally type your messages. The / at the front of the word tells the system that it's a command, and doesn't post it to the channel. Ready? Here we go!

Command Result
/nick <nick> This command allows you to change your name. To change your name to "foxley", you would simply type /nick foxley. You can set your nickname below as well, but if you forget, this command will set things straight.
/list Lists all the channels available on the network, including their topics, and how many people are in them. This is usually a very long list- on larger networks, executing this command takes longer then the average user takes to make breakfast.
/join <#channel> This allows you to enter a room, or channel. Simply find one you like in /list (or ask someone for recommendations), and type in /join #channelname. An abbreviated channel list is provided at the bottom of this page, however the /list command, described above, will give you a larger, more comprehensive list. Some channels are set to be hidden from the list, though, and you just have to know what they are/get an invitation to them.


To log in, you may choose to install a stand-alone IRC client program on your computer or simply fill out the information in either of the Login boxes below.

The first login box utilizes CGI:IRC, a fully web-based client wherein your chat communications are done through AnthroChat's web server (on port 80). It is known to be cumbersome to use in comparison with most other clients, but has the added benefit of allowing you to chat regardless of some firewall configurations that may explicitly block IRC traffic.

The second login box utilizes PJIRC, a Java based client that is akin to downloading a stand-alone client and runs from your computer without going through any software installation process. It communicates with the IRC server directly, as any other client would (on port 7000).

The third login box utilizes Kiwi IRC, a web-based client, similar to CGI:IRC, but your connections go through a third party web server


For reference, twenty channels (out of over 100; remember to check /list) are listed below the login boxes. If you see one that suits your fancy, go ahead and type it in in the "Channel" box, and it will automatically connect you to that channel. If you would like to explore more channels, use the /join command after you are connected. You may also join multiple channels, simultaneously, this way. Have fun!

CGI:IRC 0.5.10 (2011/02/07)

While these web-based chat clients will get you onto AnthroChat, you are encouraged to download and install a stand-alone client and point it at, port 6667, 7000, or 7667. XChat and mIRC are among the most widely used stand-alone clients.

Some channels require a registered nickname. Instructions for acquiring one are on the main page of our web site. If you already have a registered nickname, you may enter its password in the "Password" field of the login boxes. Otherwise, you may leave it blank.
