MDN is built and maintained by a community of writers, developers, and users all over the world. To help our community feel, well, more like a community, we have a number of communication and interaction methods that we make use of every day. This guide will help you learn to take advantage of them.
Internet Relay Chat
Internet Relay Chat (IRC) is our preferred method for day-to-day chat and real-time discussions among community members. We use a few channels for discussions related to MDN.
- This channel is our primary channel for discussing the documentation content itself. We talk about writing, organization of content, and so on. We also have "water cooler" conversations here—it's a way our community can keep in touch and just hang out.
- MDN is more than just documentation, and for that reason, we have a channel for talking about the broader MDN project. That's #mdn.
- This channel is where our development team—the people that write the code that makes MDN work—hangs out and discusses their day-to-day work. You're welcome to join in and either participate in the development or simply ask questions about issues you see with the software.
