Welcome to the Awards Page of the IRC Help Ring where you can find the winner
of our monthly Best of the Ring Award. This Months winner of the Best
of the Ring award is
The MIRC Workshop.
You can read why in a moment.
First, a word about the award itself. The Best of the Ring award is
awarded each calendar month to one of the sites in the webring. The award
is made based on a variety of criteria.
The Ringmaster and helpers select the winner on the basis of overall quality
and upkeep of the sites, the positive and negative feedback from people who
browse the ring, and on the basis of sites who's webmasters have made great
improvements during the month.
The award serves two major purposes. Firstly it provides recognition for
the hard work our ring members put into the helpful sites they create. Its
not easy to keep these sites updated with the latest release details.
Secondly it gives our visitors to the webring a recommended site, and through
the Forum for comments
, reviews of the content and quality of the sites within
the IRC Help Ring.
Best of the Ring Award Winner
for October 1999
The MIRC Workshop
The MIRC Workshop is a new addition to the IRC Help Ring, by which I mean it
has just been built. As the title suggests, the site focuses on mIRC, the
shareware IRC client. However, more general IRC information and help is
provided in addition to the mIRC specifics.
What makes the site stand out is its sheer range. The site is quite large
and wastes none of the space at all. It covers everything about mIRC from
the first setup through to writing scripts. Every step is given clear,
simple and detailed coverage making the site suitable for new users and old
The Author has taken care over every word of his tutorials and it shows.
There are a good range of small addon scripts to download, and the innovative
mIRC Script Writing applet, while slow to load is a wonderful innovation.
