Community and Support
Community collaboration and support is focused around the chat platforms and forums described below. See Getting Started | PINE64 for tips about how to get started with the PINE64 community.
PINE64 has a large and very active community. Community discussion takes place on a variety of chat platforms, which are all bridged together so the messages sent via one platform are sent to all other platforms automatically. The other networks and their users are represented by P64ProtocolBot.
- The activity of community members varies depending on the time of day and the number of active users.
- Whether your questions will be answered & whether the answers are right and definitive, depends on the information you provide, and, after all, difficulty of your questions & community members' ability.
- Read How To Ask Questions The Smart Way to learn more.
- Please read PINE64 Community Rules and Code of Conduct.
- PINE64 uses a bridge bot (matterbridge with some modifications), which allows Discord, IRC, Matrix, and Telegram users to see and participate in the community chat.
- The bot name is "Pine64 Protocol Droid" and if you see this, look in the message to see the actual author of the message.
- When the bot relays messages it will show the platform the user is using: [D] for Discord, [I] for IRC, [M] for Matrix and [T] for Telegram.
The community chat platforms are the following:
- Discord: use this Invite Link. All Pine64 discord channels are immediately viewable, do not need to join separate channels like the Telegram/Matrix table below.
- IRC: the server is irc.pine64.org. Use
/listcommand or the table below to see the full list of channels.
- Matrix and Telegram: See the table below.
There is also an unofficial Matrix Space at #pine64-space:matrix.org for supported clients that organizes all of the above matrix channels into one place.
PINE64 runs an official forum powered by the open-source forum server software MyBB. The forum can be used to report issues, help out other users, offer findings and new information and more. Users can also engage directly with the community and the developers of partner projects, as well as with the PINE64 members.
