hey hi

tilde.chat is the irc network of the tildeverse, an association of social unix servers built as an intentional community for teaching, learning, and sharing.

tilde.chat is a place for tilde-folk and friends to gather and communicate.

connection info

point your client to irc.tilde.chat on port 6697 with ssl/tls

if you're getting a higher ping than you'd like, try one of the geo-round-robins: na.tilde.chat, eu.tilde.chat, and au.tilde.chat on port 6697 with ssl/tls.

plaintext on localhost port 6667 is available at a shell on tildes that run chat nodes (port 7766 on ~town)

if you don't have a client ready to go, try using our kiwiirc webchat or our gamja webchat.

you can also connect from any xmpp client with our biboumi gateway. it runs on tilde.team's xmpp server. channels can be joined with this room-format: #helpdesk@biboumi.tilde.team

how to irc?

if you have never used irc before, you might find our intro to irc guide useful.

channel novelties

there are some fun things on tilde.chat run by robots, such as:

mumble server

we also have non-irc voice chat!

use a mumble client to connect to tilde.chat on the default port using "tilde.chat" as the password and talk!

might not be anyone there. shout about it on irc first!
