<h4>Some Hints:</h4>
<p>One part of the Scribus community is the online one: IRC or Internet Relay Chat. For some, this might be quite unfamiliar as a support channel. However, it works really well we think. Usually, at least one Scribus Team member or knowledgeable user is around. Keep in mind the best time is Central European Time, especially evenings, when it tends to be liveliest. For some, IRC has connotations of flame wars and lots of arguing, but #scribus <strong>is</strong> a friendly congenial place. Flame fests and trolling are just not tolerated in #scribus. A good primer: <a href="http://fnmueller.wordpress.com/2008/02/23/rules-of-engagement-the-ten-commandments-of-irc/">Rules of Engagement - The ten commandments of IRC</a>, also <a href="http://de.opensuse.org/IRC-Einf├╝hrung">in German </a></p>.

<h4>Some IRC Client Suggestions</h4>
<p>Given that we have IRC chat clients running 7/24 on our PC's, a couple we can recommend:</p>
<ul>
<li><a href="http://X-chat.org">X-Chat</a> - a mature GTK based client which runs on Linux and Windows. The Windows version also is alternatively available from: <a href="http://www.psyon.org/projects/xchat-win32/">http://www.psyon.org/projects/xchat-win32/</a> or <a href="http://xchataqua.sourceforge.net/twiki/bin/view/Main/WebHome">X-Chat For Aqua on MacOSX</a> </li>

<li><a href="http://konversation.kde.org/">Konversation</a> - Very stable, full featured IRC client which is easy to use for newbies. </li>
</ul>
<h4>Lounging</h4>
<p>Once you have your answer in hand, you are not obligated to disappear. #scribus is not just for hard core developers. Newbies with Scribus are just as welcome. Often, you can recognize the developers easily, as they usually have "operator" status. IRC is where we learn as developers, where people are struggling with some feature or where something is confusing in the GUI. Lounging is a good way to learn lots of tidbits about the newest features, as well as learn some good usage tricks from gurus. So, when the mood strikes, pull up a chair, kick up your feet and enjoy. </p></body>
