Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

The previous IRC network is down for unknown reason those days!!!
Not long ago the server we used went down for unknown reason. Its domain (http://flightbase.de, the one irc.flightgear.org points to!) is for sale and therefore the guess is, that it will not come online again soon, if ever.
Atm we are using the backup network chat.freenode.net:6665. If you have problems connection to it try one of the listed on http://freenode.net/irc_servers.shtml.

The channels we are running:

topic channel
Main channel #flightgear
Off topic chat #fg_cantene
Wiki #fg_wiki

Please visit this page in the upcoming days/weeks, we will update it and bring it in shape again as soon as we have more info.




The FlightGear IRC (Internet Relay Chat) channel is a chat room related to everything about FlightGear. It's mostly used by developers, but it is also a good place to ask for help if you are having a question.

To enter the IRC, you need an IRC client installed on your computer. For users of Mozilla browsers (like Firefox), the plugin ChatZilla is surely a good option. You can also use XChat (Linux and Windows), Pidgin, mIRC or any other client.

The IRC chat has several channels. Unless the server is down, the main discussion takes place on the "main channel":

(List temporary hidden!)


How to get in there with ChatZilla

ChatZilla Client area

When using ChatZilla, go to your Mozilla/Firefox browser and enter irc://irc.flightgear.org. When ChatZilla has connected to the host, click "IRC" and "Join channel...". Pick the preferred channel.

To get directly to the main channel with ChatZilla, you can also enter irc://irc.flightgear.org/flightgear in your browser.
