    So i Open up mIRC as usual, File->Recent Servers->GBAtemp: gbatemp irc
    The rules and such load up on the window then a window pops up and asks me what Channel to join, I select "#gbatemp.net".

    Let's just say that we're getting a large number of unwanted guests right now, I couldn't possibly say when, but things will return to normal ASAP.

    If it does not work, register your nick.

    A lot of people are having issues getting in, I see around 20 people less now. [​IMG]

    Make sure to register your nick, since you need that now. [​IMG]

    Oh, and JD was trying to hack the main channel, that's how this whole thing started.
