Welcome to the Userguide

Are you in need of assistance with something? Maybe you're new to the Undernet. Maybe you're just switching clients. Or maybe you're just bored and want to see what we're sharing. That's just what this section is for. Educating users about IRC. Our intent is to make it as easy to use as possible. Our goal is to get you into #USA and familiar with things as painlessly as possible. Just scroll down, and select the guide which best suits your needs.

Oh, and if there's something you don't see here, that you think should be covered, please feel free to drop into #development and let a staff member know.

One last thing: This userguide project is not affiliated with the Undernet IRC Network in anyway. It is a privately managed project. We feel it's important that you recognize that we are not an official help channel.
