irc §

we’re members of the tildeverse and host a server in the tildeverse irc network. the official channel for ~club is #club. stop by and say hello!

run chat to open weechat auto-connected to our irc server. try launching tmux, byobu or screen to keep your chat session running.

other clients like irssi are available as well! just connect to localhost on port 6667 and /join #club.

feel free to use tilde.chat’s webchat if you prefer.

some channels might require you to register your nickname with NickServ to post in them (e.g. #meta). NickServ acts like a regular user, so you communicate with it through /msg. steps:

  1. [optional] set nickname: /nick YourNick - not necessary with weechat, since it connects you under your tilde.club username
  2. register: /msg NickServ REGISTER YourPassword youremail@example.com - you can use your tilde.club e-mail address for this
  3. wait for registration email with confirmation code
  4. confirm: /msg NickServ CONFIRM someCode

after this, every time you reconnect to irc you will have to identify with nickserv again: /msg NickServ IDENTIFY YourPassword.

weechat tip: NickServ replies and error messages appear in the first buffer tilde weechat (use Alt + up/down to switch).
