    1111'''Everybody involved in administration of a system or service hosted with Tachanka! should be subscribed to this list, as it used to communicate important technical changes and maintenances.'''
    13 == User discussion and self help ==
    15 '''[ tachanka-users]''' is a discussion list used by users of services hosted with Tachanka! to exchange experiences and knowledge and to support each other.
    17 Everybody involved in administrating or using a vserver hosted by Tachanka! should consider subscribing to this list.
    19 Please keep in mind that Tachanka! consists of volunteers only, as such, while we like to do so, we have limited time to spend on supporting you. For this reason, if you think your non-urgent questions can possibly be answered by fellow Tachanka! users, too, please ask on this mailing list instead of contacting us directly. Tachanka! collective members will also read this mailing list occasionally and answer your questions if noone else knows the answer.
    2113== Contacting Tachanka! ==
    34 We encourage you to send a copy of your public OpenPGP key.
     26We encourage you to send a copy of your public OpenPGP key and to sign all messages. This enables us to authenticate communications and be sure that we are always communicating with the same entities.

    4840These backup contacts are only guaranteed to work when the above contacts don't work.
    50 For emergency contact by email, please use the ''public'' [ tachanka-users] mailing list. If you would like to discuss sensitive topics, please leave your email address and ask us to get back to you. Or try to catch us on IRC (we will likely be more active there if something's wrong).
    5242Only in case the Indymedia IRC server becomes unavailable, you may meet us on the '''OFTC IRC network''' in #tachanka. If you prefer to retain your anonymity, you may do so by connecting to this IRC network through OFTC's hidden '''Tor''' node by directing your IRC client to '''irc://37lnq2veifl4kar7.onion:6667/tachanka''' - to do the latter, you will need to install the [ TOR] client first. If, instead, you don't mind about anonymity but would like to ''SSL encrypt'' your connection to the IRC server, you may do so by connecting to '''''' on port [ircs:// 6697] or [ircs:// 9999]. If you think encryption is superfluous, then you can also [irc:// connect unencrypted] or use a web chat which connects to the OFTC network.
