IRC on Freenode

Some of the hardcore Motion users and developers are often available on IRC (Internet Relay Chat).

You are welcome to pass by for a short question or a friendly chat with the rest of us. Newbies are welcome and there is no such thing as a silly question. The motion community has a tradition for a friendly tone both on mailing list and chat. No-one should be afraid of joining in and ask for a helping hand. Or give a helping hand to others. If you join and no-one answers it is because we often let our machines stay connected even though we may not even be home. We may actually answer hours later. Just stay around or ask your question and check the channel log (see below).

The Motion channel is called #motion and it can be found on the Freenode network port 6667. (irc://

We have chosen Freenode because it is an IRC network that exists to provide an interactive environment for coordination and support of peer-directed projects, including those relating to free software and open source. More information about Freenode on
