Indymedia operates a 24-hour chatroom for discussion and technical
support. You will usually find someone hanging out in the channels. If not,
there is an automated bot which can also provide assistance! We use Internet
Relay Chat (IRC) for our chatroom. You can access the chat with your own client
program, or use our Java applet interface
on your browser.
begin chatting immediately, fill out this form and click the "chat"
button. You must have a Java-enabled browser to use this! NOTE: It may take 2-3 minutes for the Java applet to load after you click the chat button below. Channel will default to #indymedia. To access #cleveland, once on the irc, type /join #cleveland.
you do not have a Java-enabled browser, you can download your own irc client.
This is a program that runs on your computer and allows you to connect to
our chat server. You will want to take note of the following settings:
