irc §

we’re members of the tildeverse and host a server in the tildeverse irc network. the official channel for ~club is #club. stop by and say hello!

run chat to open weechat auto-connected to our irc server. try launching tmux, byobu or screen to keep your chat session running.

other clients like irssi are available as well! just connect to localhost on port 6667 and /join #club.

feel free to use tilde.chat’s webchat if you prefer.

some channels might require you to register your nickname with NickServ to post in them (e.g. #meta). NickServ acts like a regular user, so you communicate with it through /msg. steps:

  1. [optional] set nickname: /nick YourNick - not necessary with weechat, since it connects you under your tilde.club username
  2. register: /msg NickServ REGISTER YourPassword youremail@example.com - you can use your tilde.club e-mail address for this
  3. wait for registration email with confirmation code
  4. confirm: /msg NickServ CONFIRM someCode

after this, every time you reconnect to irc you will have to identify with nickserv again: /msg NickServ IDENTIFY YourPassword.

weechat tip: NickServ replies and error messages appear in the first buffer tilde weechat (use Alt + up/down to switch).

mailing list §

we now have an official mailing list!

if your account is old (pre sept 2019), you should be subscribed with the email you originally signed up with. if your account is newer (post sept 2019), then you should be subscribed with your @tilde.club address. if you don’t fit either of those categories, you can subscribe by visiting the web portal or by sending a mail to tildeclub-subscribe@lists.tildeverse.org with “subscribe” in the subject line. in either case, you can change the email you’re subscribed with on the web portal or by unsubscribing and re-subscribing from the other address.

list archives are available on the web here.

as of september 17, 2019, we’re still seeing quite a few pending mails to gmail, yahoo, and fastmail. help get our list delivered by making sure to mark list messages as not spam and adding the list address to your contacts. if you’re feeling especially motivated, please reach out to the support on your mail provider and ask them to look into why you’re not receiving the messages.
