 IRC is a great way to get answers to questions quickly and easily. Just note
 that some networks are not recommended for asking questions on, due to
-the treatment of beginner question, or general unfriendliness.

 Note that one common mistake that newcomers to IRC do is to private-message
-a user that helps them (using the <code>/msg</code> command) instead of keeping
-the discussion on the channel. To reply to someone, type (or complete using
-the tab key) their nickname, add ":" or "," and say what you want to reply.

+If you were unable to find a question on IRC, then
+<a href="http://stackexchange.com/">Stack Exchange</a> (also
+see <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stack_Exchange_Network">its
+wikipedia page</a>) is a network of sites for questions and answers. It
+is popular, and has a reputation (upvote/downvote) system for encouraging
+people to contribute. By registering into the network, you can post questions
+and get answers.
+</p>
+
+<p>
+Note that you should choose a site in the Stack Exchange network where your
+question is on-topic, and then wait. The first (and still
+one of the most popular) sites in the network,
+<a href="http://stackoverflow.com/">Stack Overflow</a> is primarily intended
+for questions about programming so don't post non-programming
+questions there.
