It's been brought to our attention that mIRC is typically problematic for people to get into. Viruses, poor server stability, and generally confusing set up make it less than ideal to host the Kerth ceremony and chat.
As a result, NK, Folc4evernaday, and I have made the decision to move this year's chat and ceremony to Google Hangouts. Our suggestion is to come and hangout some time before the awards on April 29, to get used to it. It's pretty much a standard chat room and way less confusing than mIRC.
Here are the links: Kerth Ceremony Kerth Chat
As usual, we ask that all chatter be kept to the Chat itself, and only the presenters and winners use the Ceremony to speak in.
Thanks, and if you have any questions, please ask!
ETA: An added bonus of Hangouts is that you will be able to read all the previous messages in the links if you have to come in late or log out and back in for any reason.
