The #tor-project channel is where Tor people discuss and coordinate daily Tor work. It has fewer members than #tor and is more focused on the work at hand. You are also welcome to join this channel. To access #tor-project, your nickname (nick) must be registered and verified.
Here's how to reach #tor-project and other registered channels.
Log onto #tor. See How can I chat with Tor Project teams?
Then, click on the word "Status" at the top left of the screen.
In the window at the bottom of the page, type:
/msg nickserv REGISTER yournewpassword youremailaddress
If all goes well, you will receive a message that you are registered.
The system may register you as your nick_ instead of your nick.
If so, just go with it but remember you are user_ and not user.
Every time you log on to IRC, to identify your registered nick, type:
/msg nickserv IDENTIFY YourPassWord
Then, to complete the registration and ultimately gain access to the #tor-project channel, your nickname must be verified.
To verify your nick, open a new browser window and go to https://services.oftc.net/login.
Look for the word verify and log in there. It may appear that nothing has happened. Look at the top of the page, and there will be a column called Account.
Click on the small sentence at the bottom of the square that says: Verify account.
A tiny message will appear: "Your NickServ account has been verified."
Go back to the IRC webpage where you are logged in and type:
/msg nickserv checkverify
!NickServ- Successfully set +R on your nick.
/join #tor-project 并点击确定。
You can toggle back and forth between channels by clicking on the different channel names at the top left of the IRC window.
