Along with the rest of the Ubuntu project, Ubuntu-Au makes use of the [http://www.freenode.net/ freenode] IRC servers. Most of the communication outside of the mailing list, as well as the fortnightly Ubuntu-Au meetings, takes place in the Ubuntu-Au IRC channel. A lot of general chat also takes place here. Like many other Ubuntu teams, Ubuntu-Au uses [[InternetRelayChat|IRC]] as a form of communication. Most of the communication outside of the mailing list, as well as the fortnightly Ubuntu-Au meetings, take place in the Ubuntu-Au IRC channels:

You can connect to the Ubuntu-Au IRC channel using IRC clients such as Gaim Internet Messenger or XChat, by pointing your client to '''irc.freenode.net:6667''' and joining the '''#ubuntu-au''' channel.  * '''[[irc://irc.freenode.net:8001/#ubuntu-au|#ubuntu-au]]''' ([[http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=ubuntu-au|In your browser]]) is for questions about Ubuntu itself.

 * '''[[irc://irc.freenode.net:8001/#ubuntu-au-chat|#ubuntu-au-chat]]''' ([[http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=ubuntu-au-chat|In your browser]]) is for everything else.

While in the Ubuntu-Au IRC channel (and in any Ubuntu channel) you are expected to abide by the [http://ubuntu.com/community/conduct Ubuntu Code of Conduct] (CoC). Most of what is applicable to the IRC Channel can be summarised as follows (taken from [http://www.ubuntu.com/community/conduct ubuntu.com]): Freenode prefers users to connect on the non-standard port of 8001 to prevent DCC problems that can disconnect users Routers from the Internet. Please use this port ''especially'' if you are unable to update your Router's firmware to the latest available.

'''Be respectful.''' The Ubuntu community and its members treat one another with respect. Everyone can make a valuable contribution to Ubuntu. We may not always agree, but disagreement is no excuse for poor behaviour and poor manners. We might all experience some frustration now and then, but we cannot allow that frustration to turn into a personal attack. It's important to remember that a community where people feel uncomfortable or threatened is not a productive one. We expect members of the Ubuntu community to be respectful when dealing with other contributors as well as with people outside the Ubuntu project, and with users of Ubuntu. '''Why two channels?''' The Ubuntu-Au community is a very friendly one. The downside is that the energetic chatter can have the side effect of drowning out newcomers seeking assistance and support. Like several other local community teams, we maintain a separate channel for off-topic discussion, keeping the main channel free for those who need help. Please help the Ubuntu-Au team by sticking around in the main channel to help passers-by and welcome them into the community.

Ubuntu-Au IRC

Like many other Ubuntu teams, Ubuntu-Au uses IRC as a form of communication. Most of the communication outside of the mailing list, as well as the fortnightly Ubuntu-Au meetings, take place in the Ubuntu-Au IRC channels:

  • #ubuntu-au (In your browser) is for questions about Ubuntu itself. If you need technical support, you should ask here.

  • #ubuntu-au-chat (In your browser) is for everything else. This is a social place for the Ubuntu-Au community to congregate and chat. If you are seeking help with Ubuntu, you should first try the #ubuntu-au channel (see above).

You can connect to the Ubuntu-Au IRC channel using IRC clients such as Pidgin Internet Messenger (Formerly Gaim) or XChat, by pointing your client to irc.freenode.net:8001 and joining the channels listed above.

Freenode prefers users to connect on the non-standard port of 8001 to prevent DCC problems that can disconnect users Routers from the Internet. Please use this port especially if you are unable to update your Router's firmware to the latest available.
