registration code - Introduce myself

Post by Hoppetossa »

hi,
my name is philipp and I use linux Mint since nearly 1 year and still have lots of questions.
I'm generallly a newby when it gets to electronics/computers, but a year ago I was thinking to get more into it, because i'm 36 years old and thought it's time to try to understand them.
I tried to sign up at community.linuxmint.com and they need a registration code , where/when/from who do i get it?
is this introdution of mine enough?
i live in germany and am physiotherapist.
thanks a lot
philipp

It's pronounced kad-eye-cha, not kada-itcha.

Welcome Philipp among Mint users. :) Mint community is a humble and friendly one.

It is good to have hobbies and learn new things outside your main profession (I am a civil engineer for one). I hope you will enjoy your travel inside the IT World.

As @Kadaitcha Man posted, you need to open up your default chat app (hexchat), say hi and ask for a reg code there.

The room in question is #linuxmint-help under sportchat.org and should show up automatically when you run hexchat. I have just asked for one, and they have supplied a code right away. Man, they are real quick.

Instructions are on the sign up page.
Connect to the chatroom (From within Linux Mint, launch Menu->Welcome Screen and click on Chat Room), introduce yourself and ask for a registration code.

Thank you very much! I was thinking that I get this code here in the forum. It doesnt say anything about hexchat, and I've never used it. for me this is chat room.
does it have to be hexchat? I could use Signal, Telegram or Riot..

It does not have to he Hexchat, but it has to be #linuxmint-help on the spotchat.org IRC server, with the server address irc.spotchat.org. If you know another way to use IRC, then that should work too. But Hexchat is pre-configured to get you to the right server and channel if you just open it.


You are now in the chat section of the forum, which is not the same as a chatroom.
