well you should have anonymous github acount in a first place :D
but well on irc you dont have history
thats what i mean basicaly
also what i dont like is not having rooms
i mean there should be room for support and differend room for devs
its pretty pointless when nice devs are wasting time with technical support
that could be done by users

well, irc does have rooms! and scribus does have both a #scribus and a #scribus-dev room on freenode... (well, there is alos a #scribus-team room... but's that's a secret :-) ... it just happens that nobody uses the #scribus-dev room anymore since there was too little traffic in there.
and in a small community like the scribus one, having a common room helps the devs to know what the users actually want and use the software for...
and for the history: the scribus channel is logged and you can read through it... but, yes, you have to know about it.
all this being said, i don't want to convince you that irc is a user friendly way to chat, since it's not :-)
if you want to hang out here, go for it... but we might want start talking about scribus, rather than about gitter, matrix and irc :-)

and more specifically talking about scribus-tutorials in the scribus-tutorials room, if you want to talk about other scribus stuff you can do so in the gitter room for the scribus project , right? :P

not yet, but you can create one, just like you created this one... (I guess via the ADD A ROOM button)

I stopped using this as nobody else used it... easier to use IRC if this doesn't get used, as I use pidgin and I use it for all my other messaging, and... goes to check if gitter works on pidgin, and ooooooh, it does :D :D :D
I will try it out later!

i cant imagine you can use all the rooms and stuff gitter gives you with pidgin as client
BUT GIVE IT A TRY

What do you mean? Why not? The instructions say we sign into the gitter server on IRC using our github credentials, thus it can do everything we have here with rooms, pidgin will list the rooms as "chats"

okok i dont realy know. But the gitter is i think much more about the client not only about the chat
