IRC is a way of real-time communication designed specifically for editors of Donkey Kong Wiki. It is considered a better alternative to using talk pages due to less Recent Changes clogging and the fact that lengthy conversations can be done in private if necessary. All active users are encouraged to join the channel. Note that not everyone will always be on nor be at the keyboard when you go on.
 Channel Operators
There are currently five operators in the channel. Operators have the power to enforce rules, kick or ban users, mute the channel, and change the channel's "Topic". Below lists their wiki username and then their channel nick.
 Channel rules
- Refrain from annoying other users intentionally; Cyberbullying, excessive caps, and/or other generally abusive actions will not be tolerated on the IRC.
- Do not impersonate other users, for it creates confusion and unnecessary drama.
- No spamming - Spam is annoying. Something will be considered spam if it is repeated several times. Also, if a user is entering random and meaningless things, that is also considered spam.
- No references to sexual topics - Not everyone wants to hear this.
