A new IRC Channel


(Alessandro Vermeulen) #1

Dear fellow users,

An IRC channel has been created at freenode called #discourse. Everyone is welcome to join! :smile:


How does the Discourse project work?
(Patrick Westerhoff) #2

I wonder, is there an actual need for an IRC channel? Isn’t this supposed to be the community about Discourse?


(Chris Hanel) #3

Maybe not ‘need’ per se, but there’s always going to be interactions and discussions that work better in one medium or another. I think offering an IRC channel is great for allowing people to have casual conversations and more off-topic dialogue with each other.

Does it have to be an actual console-ish IRC, or can it be a chat implementation like that of http://chat.stackexchange.com ?
