Revision as of 15:17, 1 September 2018

MusicBrainz uses two IRC channels for real-time chat and discussions. For more information about IRC in general, see the Wikipedia article. If you don't have an IRC client (such as mIRC or Colloquy), Freenode provides a web-based client.

Please note that all users of the IRC channels are expected to follow the Code of Conduct.

Note: Due to an on-going spam attack on the IRC network we use we temporarily require people to register on the network to be able to talk in our channels. Please follow the guide on how to register and feel free to contact us if you're having issues or questions regarding this.

Channels

The MusicBrainz community and support channel is

  • #musicbrainz on the Freenode web-based client. This is recommended for users without an IRC client installed.
  • #musicbrainz on irc.freenode.net This is recommended for users who seek more options and have an IRC client installed.

Among the regulars in this channel are quite a few of the developers as well as some of the auto-editors and other active MusicBrainz users. Anything related to MusicBrainz, including Picard and other MusicBrainz products, is welcome here. References to IRC in MusicBrainz generally refer to this channel. As in many communities, the regulars in the channel have their own slang.

The development and general MetaBrainz channel is #metabrainz on irc.freenode.net

Apart from MusicBrainz development, this channel also hosts general MetaBrainz talk, incl. discussion about all the other *Brainz projects: BookBrainz, CritiqueBrainz, AcousticBrainz, ListenBrainz, MessyBrainz, and the Cover Art Archive. There is a weekly dev chat held in this channel. A reminder is normally sent out to the developers mailing list Sunday night/Monday morning.

There are also channels in other languages than English:
