How We Use IRC

If you have questions about anything Diaspora-related, the best way to get an answer quickly is to visit us in IRC. An IRC "channel" is roughly equivalent to a chatroom, or a text-based group chat in Skype, or a Campfire room.

It's fairly low-tech as group communication goes, but since we have contributors all over the world in different time zones and with different levels of internet access, it works well for us.

Channels

We have several IRC channels. Click the link to join the channel in a browser window. You can also download and use an IRC client such as Colloquy for OS X, mIRC for Windows, XChat or Konversation for Linux distros.

Oh and don't ask if you can ask something, just ask.

NonIRC Help

We have two mailing lists, both Google groups. They tend to have a slightly different audience than the IRC channels, so if you can't get your question answered in IRC, you can try here.
