Communication with the developers is a great step to becoming a developer yourself.
There are several ways to communicate with people who are involved in Pioneer.
For communication there are some general guidelines.

The Forum

The Forum is an important part of pioneer community.
In the forum things can be discussed extensively, pictures can be shared and long descriptions can be given.

Forum Terms & Rules

The Forum Terms & Rules as shown at registration:

Please remember that we are not responsible for any messages posted. We do not vouch for or warrant the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any
message, and are not responsible for the contents of any message.

The messages express the views of the author of the message, not necessarily the views of this bulletin board. Any user who feels that a posted
message is objectionable is encouraged to contact us immediately by email. We have the ability to remove objectionable messages and we will make 
every effort to do so, within a reasonable time frame, if we determine that removal is necessary.

You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not use this bulletin board to post any material which is knowingly false and/or 
defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, or 
otherwise violative of any law.

You agree not to post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you or by this bulletin board.

Our websites use cookies to distinguish you from other users of our website. This helps us to provide you with a personalised experience when you  
browse this site. For detailed information on the cookies we use and the purposes for which we use them see our cookie policy (link at the footer of 
each page).


In addition to this there are also the rules of netiquette (Net+Etiquette). This means that you should always be nice to others. Always remember:

  • Manners don't cost anything.
  • The people who work on pioneer aren't payed for this, they are volunteers. So don't expect them to do everything you want them to do.


The IRC is a fast mean of communication. Chat is faster than a forum but it doesn't allow long messages and pictures.
More about IRC can be found here.

Channel flooding

Channel flooding means the flooding of the channel with messages. This can be spam or repepeated requests. If noone answers to your request, just wait a bit. If noone answers in the next half hour you can repeat your request.


The rules of netiquette mentioned above also apply to the IRC.

GitHub Issues

GitHub Issues are a good way to report issues and feature requests to the devs. More Information about GitHub can be found here.
