Can I talk about [this] on the dtella IRC?

Chances are: yes, you can. If you would talk about [this] in normal conversation, you can probably talk about it on IRC.

Want to converse about your newest DS game? Do it. Want to talk about your crazy fast computer system? Go for it. Want to talk about how the government is the worst thing ever and how the world is going to soon come to an end? You should probably take that conversation somewhere else.

Sometimes the chat will get super focused on one topic. That is perfectly fine! But if you are having a 1 on 1 conversation with your buddy, the main channel is not the place for that. Take it to your own channel, or, a PM!

In general, we try to have a hands off approach to IRC, letting the community direct the discussion. That being said, there are some rules that must be followed. Harassment and (race/sex)ism will be met with swiftest of bans. If you like using dtella, don’t even go there.

Can’t figure out how to make dtella work no matter what you do? Throw it in the IRC.

As always, make sure to read the Rules.
