## Chat usage
While our [community forum](https://community.snowdrift.coop/) is good for longer posts and specific topical discussions, IRC/Matrix is more loose and casual. Those discussions are often real-time or semi-real-time and have a flat, ongoing format instead of distinct topics. We chat about various ideas, ask questions, socialize, and so on — anything connected to Snowdrift.coop (even just tangential).
### IRC bot
We have a bot ("fpbot") on the channel which will one day handle alerts, integration with the website, and more. For example, you can leave a message for another member with the following command: `fpbot: tell username Your message`. You can ping the set of most-engaged users (who opt in to being on the list) with `!folks` followed by some message.

Chat should follow our [Code of Conduct](conduct). Note that flooding the channel with overwhelming quantity of messages will be considered spamming regardless of the content.
As we cannot flag and edit specific comments in IRC (but possible on the Matrix side), please send a polite, *private* message to anyone violating the Code of Conduct asking them to improve the issue going forward.
If someone does not show willingness to address friendly complaints or if they continually post things in violation of the Code of Conduct, alert a moderator.
