It depends on where you look. Rizon seems to hold a lot of the general chat nowadays, Freenode holds the tech areas, and Efnet holds the classic IRCers. Yes, IRC seems to be slowing down, but it wont be dead for a very long time- if ever. Its arguably one of the best and most simple chat protocols out there and has been time-tested and is well known. However, for a community, a small IRC server is a great place to be, where everyone knows everyone. For voat stuff, I'd recommend goatchat, as my server is less voat-oriented.

Thank you so very much for that detailed response Failure, I really appreciate it and will definitely check those places out! A few months back a couple of co devs I was talking to mentioned an IRC channel they religiously used and I picked back up an IRC client and got totally lost (it was literally years ago I used it last) but I will definitely have a suss this week now you have thrown me a starting point.

All the best bro ;)

No problem man. For reference, at least from my perspective, Hexchat is the best desktop IRC client, IRCCloud is the best mobile client, and Kiwiirc is the best web client.

Voat fucked up your link, so I'm going to try and fix it for lazy people like myself.

This might take you to goatchat.
