Being on the IRC channel is crucial to your contribution

Post by TcDohl »

I cannot stress enough the importance of being on the IRC channel. It is your lifeline to the project that the boards can never be. If you are not on the channel, then I guarantee to you that you will be out of the loop. Even if you are a non-contributing lurker, and want to just know the latest news on the project, then being on the IRC channel wouldn't hurt either.

So, now that I've got your attention, you're probably doing one of two things: 1) Getting on to the IRC channel right now
2) Scratching your head at how to get on to this "IRC" that I am talking about

If you're under #2, then follow the following instructions. This is the easiest way to get on to the IRC channel for those who are less technically inclined.

#1: Get the Firefox Chatzilla plugin
#2: Restart your Firefox browser
#3: Copy and paste "irc://" into the address bar
#4: Choose your username (hopefully the same one that you use here)

And voila! You're on our IRC channel! If you still have trouble with getting on to IRC, feel free to PM me.
