Peppermint really needs an irc channel. This is why:
« on: September 06, 2019, 12:45:42 am »
Gents,

First off I freaking love peppermint.  :)I sorted things out to get Pep on all of my current computers.  :(For the most part? All was easy. But I have linuxed  for more than a few years.  But there really should be an irc presence. For those that want to come to linux and find this spin that is simply awesome.  :-\
 But here is what I am thinking. :-\ When looking for simplicity? The barrier to entry? Coming from windows is pretty high. And I will say I have had a lot of success transitioning winders users to pep, But a active support network of those willing to give their time to IRC or a facebook group. I know.. I freakin hate facebook. But this spin is frteakin awesome.  I really love it.. I put a lot of time to integrate Pep into my daily geeking. I don't regret a minute of it.
 Really? I love this spin.  :D This spin is what ubuntu wants to be and what #! forgot.
 I dunno if I could step into the shoes of a Pep advocate. But it would be awesome if something like that could happen. This is my go to distro to convert more that a few winders technots. And yes. I am more than willing to help pay it forward.
 Y'all do/did/are doing amazing things for the linux world and I am thankful for it all.

V/R,
drakken

If you'll pardon the pun, IIRC Peppermint used to have an IRC channel, but nobody used it.

I gather it's still there .. but nobody has manned it like forever
irc://irc.freenode.net/#peppermint
or via the web
https://irc-source.com/channel/freenode/%23peppermint

[EDIT]

Oh, hang on I don't think that was the original 'official' IRC channel .. that looks like one started by someone called 'balsaq' ???

[END EDIT]




Heck we used to ship with xchat pre-installed and pre-configured to take you there directly, and still nobody used it :(
(was a while back though .. dropped in PM5 IIRC, or maybe it was PM4)
