I have noticed a great deal of new user traffic to the chat site lately, so I wanted to put together a guide to help people along.
I hope that covers the basics, please feel free to chime in with comments or questions.
Links to currently available channels.
Here are some links to the more common channels/rooms for users who can use clickable irc:// links.
Just a heads up to anyone trying to find the chat through this thread.

Many of you may not even know that until recently, RCG had a chat feature. Several years ago there was a box on the main page for it, and traffic was high and regular. That box was removed (presumably to make room for more ads) and while traffic did drop a bit it was still active right up until the last day. We had a core group of about 20 regulars that stayed connected pretty much 24/7, and several daily "hit and run" users who would stop in for advice.
I held the keys for the last 8 years or so, and am truly sad to see it go. Good friendships were made, and it was a part of many of our daily lives.
Or you can point any standard IRC client to:
Anyone and everyone is welcome to come and talk about a wide range of mostly technical topics covering, and extending beyond RC. Hope to see you there.
Although i'm not to active on the forums itself, i am active in the chat as i prefer direct real-time discussions. And i must agree with Nihil that there are still people who want to seek help in the chat as we had have regular traffic of RCG users looking for help with their models or technical advice. Some of us keep their client open 24/7, 365 days a year (if you not count the days when we have some technical problems of our own ;> :P ) so each and every person found some help among us (as long as he/she stayed few minutes before we could read it).
I hope that RCG will reconsider bringing back the chat feature. There's still lots of potential in it. You guys just don't see it.
