Mozilla runs an IRC server to host channels for discussion of topics related to the Mozilla project.
===Pick an IRC client===
Using just your first name can also be a good option, if it's unique. But:
# Beware that IRC "seems" case-sensitive but actually isn't: e.g. <tt>/whois mossop</tt> (all lowercase) will return info on Mossop (with initial capital) if he's online, and <tt>/nick mossop</tt> will either be refused (if Mossop is online) or make NickServ tell you that this nick is registered and that you should IDENTIFY with its password if it's yours (if he isn't). ([[#Register your nickname|See below]] about this NickServ stuff.)
# Despite our very best efforts, occasionally people do experience behaviors that are not inline with our Community Participation Guidelines. If happens to you, please reach out to the channel moderator or use our [https://events.mozilla.org/communityparticipationhotline reporting hotline].
