This is a live chat, but sometimes everyone is away from their computers or not paying attention. If you don’t get an answer, try out our mailing lists instead. If you close the page and leave before you get a reply, you probably won’t get any follow-up. Sometimes people reply minutes or hours later, so don’t give up immediately.
You don’t need to auth to services unless you have registered a nick on Freenode already. If you don’t know what that means, don’t worry about it!
