Kristina (@gelicia) has created a #minecraftpi channel on IRC over on the espernet chat network.
IRC is “Internet Relay Chat” which is essentially a chat room that allows for real time communication. Lots of communities and topics create IRC rooms so people can discuss things in real time. Often this is a great resource if you are having trouble with something, as people can in real time help you through problems.
If you’d like to connect in and join the discussion or just ask for help you have a few options.
- The simplest way is to use their web interface — http://www.esper.net/publicirc.php. Just create a name, type in #minecraftpi for the chat room and enter. If you intend to join the IRC often, you may want to use one of these solutions below as they provide a more powerful interface…
- You may want to use a native IRC Client for more features. Here are some recommendations for Windows, Mac, Raspberry Pi and Linux.
Hope this works for you — if you have any problems, please feel free to leave a comment!
PS: Here’s an image showing what to enter on the espernet web interface. Change test123 to your own nickname 🙂
