If you have your own IRC client, configure it to the server irc.mellochat.com (NOTE: that’s dot com, not dot net) with port 6667, then /join #thevillage and you’ll be chatting away with us in no time.
If you want to use Mibbit, check this page on MelloChat’s site for full instructions.
If you don’t have your own client, here’s a link to our traditional flash chatroom: Chatroom Entrance
MelloChat now has a non-flash option that’s like mIRC, but accessible by browser. When accessed by phone, it looks like an app. Use the gear icon (Settings) to change themes to something easier to read if needed. Click here to open it up. Remember, this is a MelloChat portal, so the channel opens up in #Mello. Should you get disconnected, manually refresh the page. To join The Village, type /join #thevillage
