Shutting Down #npm IRC

The #npm channel on is being devoiced. That means: if you’re not a moderator in the channel, you won’t be able to post there. Instead, you’ll be redirected to this message.

As an official communication channel, IRC is difficult for us to adequately moderate and maintain. A welcoming and compassionate npm community is important to us, and as a small team, moderating IRC effectively has proven very difficult. Since #npm is probably always going to be seen as an “official” npm venue, we cannot in good conscience continue to let it fall into disrepair.

Here are some much better places to seek help, guidance, and support, which are actively moderated and maintained, either by us or by others.
