What is a BNC?
A BouNCer (commonly abbreviated to BNC) keeps you connected to an IRC server 24/7, saving your channels and usermodes. It also allows you to recieve messages while offline.
More information on BNC can be found: http://wiki.swiftirc...x.php?title=Bnc
How do I get a BNC?
You can apply for a BNC by issuing the following command whilst on SwiftIRC and in the channel #BNC. /msg FreeBNC BNC which will carry out an automated application process. Your application will then be forwarded to the staff channel where an admin will verdict the outcome of your app.
A BNC will stop you from disconnecting from IRC everytime you DC, saving you unwanted ping noises and channel floods. You can idle on IRC 24/7 as well.
YOU HAVE TO IDLE IN #BNC AT ALL TIMES IN ORDER TO KEEP YOUR BNC, IF THEY CATCH YOU THEY WILL REMOVE YOUR BNC
I encourage most of you to get yourself a BNC, they help loads. If you have any questions ask on this topic.
