There is no key, but it would be best if you were identified with nickserv.
For those that have irc:// URLs associated with an IRC client, here's a quick link.
Please note the following regarding the IRC channel, also:
- If a user has mode +v (also known as voice), this usually means they are a channel operator but they are currently off duty.
- The user Failnet is not an actual person, but an IRC bot owned and maintained by Obsidian. It may be used to kick or kickban a user when a channel operator is undercover or off-duty, or as a general purpose factoid bot.
- Regarding Failnet and other IRC bots, filling the channel with botspam during an active discussion may get you kicked from the channel after being warned at least once.
- It's okay to bring your IRC bot into our IRC channel, but please do not fill the channel full of botspam.
- Board rules shall apply to the IRC channel, and that all users in the channel are to be treated with respect as anyone else.
