You are here: Home > Online Chat


Greetings, and welcome to the IRC server. You can use the IRC applet here to connect to the #uk_goffs channel and chat with a bunch of net.goths.

To use the applet, first read the rules below, then click the button to confirm your age and that you will obey the rules.

You will then be asked to accept the signed java ceritifcate from jpilot, do so, then fill in the field for your nickname, and optionally your real name, and click on the 'connect' button.
A list of connected users should appear on the right hand side of the applet, with the main window showing the current conversation in the room. You can type your irc commands into the text box just underneath that window. Channel operators will have an @ symbol preceeding their name.
Most of the daytime regulars on here spend most of their time working in real life - they are not deliberately ignoring you!

Rules and Regulations:

Abusive behaviour will not be tolerated, so please don't spam the irc channel with crap, or embark upon personal attacks, or try connecting your own 'bots without permission from dishmop - these amongst other things will get you kicked and/or banned pretty quickly. We're all here to have fun, but not at the expense of other people.

The One Rule to Bind them all is:

If you are not sure about whether to do something or not:
a) read this FAQ
b) watch the channel and see how other people behave
c) Ask an Operator. They are people in the userlist with an @ next to their name, they moderate the channel.

We try to keep the conversation to a reasonably intelligible standard, so please observe the following guidelines:

Failure to adhere to these points will get you derided by all the channel regulars and probably kicked off the server for repeated use.

We take no responsibiliy for anything that occurs within this chatroom, and you use it at your own risk. This is not a public service, and the operators' decision on a matter is final. If you don't have much in the way of online chat experience, don't be surprised to discover that 18 year old SeXXY_Deth_CHICK is in fact a 42 year old lorry driver called Keith. If in doubt, read the faq.

Grown your Own

This applet is just a fancy front end to connect to the IRC server on - if you want to connect to it with your preferred IRC client, go ahead.

WARNING - Age guideline

This chat channel contains grownups, and therefore has adult conversation (or at least a close approximation of it) going on. If you are under 16 we recommend you should not proceed - the moderators cannot be held responsible for anything read by a minor in the chat channel.

By clicking the above you agree to these conditions and to abide by the Rules and Regulations detailed above.
