 What is IRC?
Internet Relay Chat (IRC) is a form of real-time Internet text messaging (chat) or synchronous conferencing. It is mainly designed for group communication in discussion forums, called channels, but also allows one-to-one communication via private message as well as chat and data transfer (including file sharing). Here on Gamepedia, we maintain a number of channels to promote real-time discussion of the work happening on our wikis.
 Basic IRC commands
Basic IRC commands can be used by everyone. Commands begin with a forward slash followed directly by the command: (Note: Do not type < or > in these commands)
/join #<channel> -- Connects you to <channel>. All channels are preceeded by a hash (#).
/nick <NewNick> -- Changes your current nick to <NewNick>
/me <action> -- Displays <action> in the chatroom (i.e. /me waves yields “*JohnSmith waves” to the chatroom)
/away <Message> -- Sets your status to Away and sends <Message> to anyone who messages you
/msg <nick> <message> -- Sends <message> only to <nick> rather than the channel at large
/quit -- Terminates your IRC connection
