-----ORIGINAL POST-----
So, I've been starting to use IRC more and more over the last couple of months and found it to be very useful for both getting support and just general chatting.

Why do we not have an IRC channel (that I know of)? This could drop the boundaries for people to create an account and write an elaborate post. They could get more realtime help.
It can also help development discussions and we can talk about anything related to the project.

Let me know what you guys think.

Better ways of communication for support would be good, but I don't know if IRC is the best solution. nassp.sourceforge.net is the first point people go when they find the project, unfortunately the wiki is broken so that no new users can be created, which makes keeping it up to date difficult. We could move to the Orbiter Forum which has much more activity and I have answered questions there a few times. Creating an account here in this forum is also difficult, as I had to experience myself. As for development, I am not opposed to having an IRC and if the regulars here all think that would benefit development, then let's do it that way. But I often find very old posts here in this forum which are helpful for development now, so I would prefer (and I have always done so myself) to have posted any major changes and new findings in a forum post.

Is there an existing IRC network with an active/reasonably sized Orbiter user community? If not, I already run an IRC network for other purposes and I would have no issues with a channel being there.

All the orbiter related IRC channels I can find are spread out over multiple networks which I've never heard about.

I already created a channel on freenode a while back. A lot of open source projects (especially linux related) are hosting support/discussion channels there.
The channel is #nassp. I'm currently the only op in there but I'll grant all the devs op power. Just hop in and ping me.

Dseagrav, if you prefer to use your network instead I won't mind and just remove the channel on freenode. But IMO it would be better to use a well known network.

Channel dropped due to nobody using it.
If people want it back, please let me know. I'll get it registered and setup again.

There will probably be more interest after the release.

Do you want me to set it up again on freenode or would you rather use your own network?

Whichever you think is going to work better for people.

Since I'm pretty much always on freenode anyway and it being a well known network around the net I've set it up on freenode again.
Just shoot me a message on their so I can grant you op access. Channel is #nassp.
Below are some things I recommend setting up.

I was sceptical if an IRC channel would be helpful for us, but now I think it can be both development and support chat. I have been in the chat whenever I was working on Apollo 7 the last few days. And talking about the ongoing work with some people (just Thymo and thewonderidiot really) is much better than having to wait for a response here in the forum. Anything that is useful to know for everybody working on NASSP should of course still be posted in this forum. But I encourage everybody to join the chat whenever they are working on something or when they have questions. I can't promise "one-to-one" training, but if I am there then I'll try to help.

Im trying trying to register my username with IRC:

/msg NickServ REGISTER password youremail@example.com

Does this have to be typed into an IRC client of some sorts? What client are you guys using?

Yes, /msg is an IRC command.

I'm using KVIrc myself but I'm not sure if it's compatible with Windows. Hexchat is also a widely used client. Personal preference really.
Here's a list of clients: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_Internet_Relay_Chat_clients
