General

For chat we use IRC. There are IRC apps for every operating system, even some phones have IRC capability. What you see below is a widget which connects to our IRC channel right in this webpage—simple.

Nicknames

We’re on a big IRC server with lots users, so, common nicknames may be in use or reserved. If your name changes to "Guest483", that’s why. Once connected, type /nick NewNameHere to change your nickname. Use your forum name or something similar so we know who you are. How to register your nickname.

What are some different IRC apps I can use?

Some popular choices are mIRC for Windows, Colloquy for Mac and BitchX for Linux. If you use Firefox and want something relatively basic, check out the Chatzilla extension. Wikipedia has a big list.
