Step 2:

After clicking continue, you will be redirected to a new window, that says: Full Name, Email Address, Nick Name, and Alternative.

Type your name (this is the internet, don't be dumb enough to type your real name) - Jane Doe would do, in the Full name field.

In the Email Address field, same as above, don't be dumb enough to write something real, [email protected]_dastreet.com would do (I advice using an actual domain name, like .com as I showed above as GameSurge (the irc network) might have some spam services.

The nickname is whatever you want to name yourself in chat.

The alternative is whatever you want to have if the nickname is in use.
