do not /who the #channel on join
For xchat users: /set irc_who_join 0 in your client.
For mIRC users: turn off irc -> options -> show nicks on join
Should stop you all getting disconnected on join (This channel's rather huge)
EDIT: This has now been fixed.
UPDATE: The amount of users being active was getting really high and becoming a stress on the IRC network. We had to set a userlimit for the time being. If you get a channel full message, please try again a bit later.
UPDATE #2: It was needed to add a key to the channel, which is 'bacon'
