The Fedora {COMMBLOG}[Community Blog] is an important place for sharing news in the Fedora community. An account gives permissions to view article drafts and previews before they are published. If you ever write an article, you need an account. To register, log in at the {COMMBLOG}/wp-login.php[login page] with your Fedora Account System (FAS) credentials.

Join our IRC/Telegram chat
Fedora uses the https://freenode.net[Freenode IRC network] and https://telegram.org/[Telegram] for instant messaging and communication. You can use the messaging client of your choice, as the IRC channel and Telegram group are bridged together. Short discussions and planning happen in our group chat.
Never used IRC before? See the https://fedoramagazine.org/beginners-guide-irc/[Beginner's Guide to IRC] on the Fedora Magazine. Additionally, you can connect temporarily in a chat session in your browser via https://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=fedora-badges[Freenode web chat]. However, if you want to stay connected even when you are not online, consider https://opensource.com/article/17/5/introducing-riot-IRC[using Riot] as your IRC client.
The IRC channel is also bridged to a Telegram group, https://t.me/fedorabadges[@fedorabadges]. Join the group at https://t.me/fedorabadges[t.me/fedorabadges].
