I am still banned.
¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  
I lost OP because I was gone for too long.
  
just downloaded.
  
Joiiinn ussssss
  
Can't use hexchat at work, which is the only time I'm on the forum besides when I'm out at the bar. Wompwomp
  
What's the difference between downloading the HexChat thing and hitting the IRC button on here?
(this isn't me trying to be difficult, I'm genuinely curious.)
  
Hexchat doesn't ever boot you off for idling as far as I can tell.
  
I recommend Kiwi IRC if you want to use an in-browser irc client.

Having a browser tab open is ephemeral and you are less likely to continually come back.
  
I prefer mibbit for my in browser IRC needs.
  
So did I once upon a time.
  
I will try to be online slightly more often.

Disconnects for idling are up to the server.
  
I try but no one is there
