Help info for using irc://irc.indymedia.org/

Basic Commands

Rooms are generally called channels.

Join a room (create it if it doesn't exist):

/join #roomname
/j #roomname

Get a list of all channels on the server:

/list

Start a private conversation:

/msg nickname

Change your nickname:

/nick newnickname

Set up an autoresponder when you are away:

/away This is my message while I am away

Type /away again to turn it off.

Registering

Registering is not necessary or compulsory for the use of chatrooms. However, you can register your nickname in order to "secure" its usage. If you register your nickname then you can also request a cloak for your IP address in irc://irc.indymedia.org/#ircd

To get help on registration commands:

/msg NickServ help

Ranks / Functions

You might see some people with @ signs or + signs before their nicknames. People with @ signs are operators of the channel. They are there to maintain a civilized discussion: they have the necessary privileges to change the topic of the channel, kick or even ban people in case things get really nasty. People with + signs are users granted "voice". Voice is only relevant in moderated chatrooms, where only people with "voice" can speak in public.
