The community has formed an IRC channel for everyone. You can join it at irc.efnet.org and we’re on #Stonehearth. It’s recommended to use a chat client for people who intend to stay for a while. Pidgin is a decent client that I use if anyone is in need of one.
You can also use this link here to connect via webclient http://chat.efnet.org:9090/?channels=%23stonehearth
