Tonight will see the introduction of a series of tutorials for IRC users, similar to Undernet's "opschool", with the first being a basic IRC tutorial which starts today at 2000CEST/1900BST in #tutorial. These tutorials will also include an interactive Q & A session with the staff members present. We cannot stress enough that everybody is welcome to attend.
There will be various tutorials in different languages and to suit different peoples' abilities. Hopefully, provided we have enough people attending, these tutorials will become a regular QuakeNet event. So, for any people new to IRC and/or QuakeNet, pop into #tutorial and see if we can help.
