Important: This topic is meant for those who have poor connections or aren't connected to IRC very often.
 

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.

I also run a BNC server (David and I use it), so if for some reason you want an alternative hit me up.

I tried to get one ages ago, it got really confusing lol. Always on IRC anyway so it's probably not essential for me to get one

Correct, not the primary motivation for suggesting them in this case, though, since ddosing isn't a big issue in the rp/tank community

BE AWARE. Whoever hosts the server of your BNC can read EVERYTHING YOU SEND AND RECEIVE ON IRC. For this reason I'm looking into starting my own BNC server, but I realise this isn't feasible for the majority of people. Orc has done this too.

Can't swiftirc admins already read everything you send and receive? Since they have a history of corruption, I think the lesson is simply to avoid discussion of anything very sensitive on swiftirc

Well, yes. But varying degrees of distrust to be honest. The person hosting your BNC could be someone that knows your rs login name etc.
