Being able to register on mibbit allows you to be identified by the channel, so it is like logging in the channel

I've set one up on irc.coldfront.net
If you don't have an IRC client, you can use Mibbit, which is a web-based client that doesn't use Java. I've found it to be quite good.

For Moderaters this is a must:
Choose a user name or nick. This user name should consist only of the letters from A-Z, the ciphers from 0-9 (but not as first character) and certain symbols such as "_" and "-". It may have a maximum of 16 characters. Please note that some nicknames are used internally and cannot be used. Also, please stay family friendly with your nicknames
Change your user name to the user name you have chosen. Suppose you chose the nick "plumcake". Type the following in the window titled irc.mibbit.net:
Register your nick or user name. Type the following command and replace your_password with a password that will be easy to remember and replace email@example.com with your correct email address. Avoid hotmail.co.uk and Yahoo if you can, we get reports that Yahoo fails more often than not. Oddly enough, Yahoo managed email, such as ATT or SBCGlobal seem to work.
/msg nickserv register your_password firstname.lastname@example.org
Get the confirmation code from your email inbox. Type the following command and replace confirmation_code with the code sent to you in the email.
Simply copy and paste the command given in the inbox and paste into your chat window, and press enter
Registering enables you to receive MOD privalages when ever you log in providing you were given them. Once you get Authenticate your account do not expect a message, the process of making your mibbit account has been finished.
Identify with Nickserv. Each time you connect, you should sign in, or "identify" yourself, using the following command:
/msg nickserv identify your_password ( or /identify your_password on some servers )
