IRC chat: #poichat on irc.slashnet.org


We're set up as #poichat on irc.slashnet.org for anyone who already knows how to use IRC!

If you don't know IRC, just head on over to the slashnet.org web interface (this will automatically join you to the #poichat channel after you put in a nickname).

FYI, here are the basic concepts of IRC:
- You connect to a server (irc.slashnet.org) with your choice of IRC software
- You set your nickname (can be anything you want unless someone else is using it)
- You join channels (#poichat) and talk to everyone else who is in the channel with you

Advanced tip:

If you want to be auto-opped, you need to register your nickname:
/msg nickserv register [password] [email]
Once you're registered, post your nickname here and I'll add you to the auto-op list. :)

Whoohoo! I have somehow made it 13 years in fandom without ever using IRC, actually, so... new experiences, yay?
