I just started using IRC chats for the first time a few days ago and I'm REALLY enjoying it! I was sort of worried I'd get overwhelmed and not talk much like I do with new Discord servers I join, but I'm finding that it has a completely different vibe to what I'm use to with other IM programs/apps. You only ever see who ever's online in that specific channel, you don't get sound notifications whenever a new message is posted (only when someone enters/leaves), and you're only in the channels you choose to be in, rather getting them all at once and needing to mute the channels you're not interested in.

It's really fun! I like it a lot :D I have yet to find a super active community, understandably so I guess. Quite "outdated" technology by most people's standards. But that's kinda what makes it nice and cozy :D you get to actually see who's there and meet people, and get excited when you recognize someone pop in who you wish to chat to ^^

I'd love to hear your experiences with/thoughts on IRC, and if you have any servers you'd recommend!

That's great that you're having a good time with it. Depending on the client, you can also turn off sounds for join/exits too. I actually hide those completely. Are you mainly using Libera.chat?

You'll definitely want to check that one out as it has the highest number of users and channels and they will be more active.

See here for more details on number of users per IRC network: https://netsplit.de/networks/top100.php

Internet Relay Chat (IRC) is a protocol made for instant communication online via text, which is something you do on the daily nowadays but when it first appeared in 1988 it was mind-blowing

Despite it's age and better competitors popping in with the times (such as XMPP) it still holds a small yet dedicated userbase

This great info! The last time I used IRC was in an old friend server, this thread may be the push for me to download a client.
