Public Channels

Public channels are available to all (with some being only available if you add them to your visible channel list by reacting to the appropriate reactions in #role-assignment). These channels are open to anyone, member, former member or guest alike, we simply ask you follow the rules (visible in #rules) and try to keep chat to the appropriate rooms.
