About Us ...
History of #Beginner
#Beginner is a chat channel located on the Undernet group of servers. To many of us, we also call it home. Our primary purpose is to welcome folks from all over the world to Internet Relay Chat, or IRC. Our goals include teaching our visitors how to use their IRC clients , and to remove some of the mystery of talking through our computers with folks thousands of miles away. Along the way, we enjoy the privilege of making new friends from all around the world.
Timeline of our history:
Before this date, the channel was home to only a few regular ops and users, probably totaling around 20 people at any given time. This all changed in September of 1996 when mIRC 4.6 came out with #Beginner listed first in the mIRC Channels Folder. These days, mid 2008, we average about 100+ people in the channel most times, and our all-time high is a record of 295, which occurred on Friday, May 5th, 2000, 10:32 p.m. (Spain time).
Staff of #Beginner
We have a GREAT group of Ops and Voices that monitor the #Beginner Channel, and this site is put together by them....for you. The channel wouldn't exist without the dedication and volunteer work of these people from a wide variety of occupations. We have teachers, executives, homemakers, students, computer engineers, all working diligently to monitor the channel, and to help make everyone's stay as pleasant as possible. Many thanks to all of them for their hard work, their loyalty, and most of all...their friendships. To learn more about the Ops and Voices of #Beginner, please check out our #Beginner Gallery
We hope everyone enjoys their stay in our channel, and to get the most out of your IRC experience, remember this:
