    Guys, I really need help with mIRC. It is so confusing and I'm not a technology person at all. The Smogon tutorial does not help whatsoever.

    What part are you having trouble with? I mean, the tutorial literally tells you exactly what to do... it does everything short of actually clicking the buttons for you.

    Think of it as Multiplayer Notepad. You're confused because you've never heard of that game, so you don't want to get too involved before you learn the rules. Level up your character diligently, and take comfort in the fact that most other players are harmless NPCs who won't try to flame you out of your Continues.

    This takes time though, and interacting with the right NPCs and steering clear of enemies like RODAN and MrE who will sap your hit points if you don't know how to deal with them. Don't try to beat the game in one sitting—eventually you'll gain the EXP to thrive on successive levels of your mIRC experience.

    I hate using IRC and it never works. See:
    Didn't work. An actual tutorial would be a good article to have as far as I'm concerned

    @phoopes:

    that's like saying real pros use [worse alternative to toothbrush here] to clean their teeth instead of a toothbrush.

    it might be okay if you have nothing else and it's only for a few days, but otherwise you should really just get a toothbrush

    mibbit is convenient if an eyesore. Normally it's little effort to install chatzilla which is better.

    Charming usage.

    It's glad to see you took the time to point out to other users what we thought of them, but you didn't even consider taking the advice we were screaming to you at the top of our lungs:

    17:18:09: <WaterBomb> you need to lurk more
    17:18:13: <pokemonmasterxx> So I missed all your discussion.
    17:18:16: <WaterBomb> by "lurking", I mean
    17:18:24: <WaterBomb> reading a lot of threads but not posting
    17:18:25: <WaterBomb> just reading
    17:18:28: <WaterBomb> learning the culture
    17:18:31: <WaterBomb> and how people act
