They appeared in a similar fashion, e.g., with the bot sending a
message, but prefixing it with the original IRC nick. An unfortunate
side effect is that things like colored IRC nicks are no longer as
universal, *but* that may be something that could be improved.

If anyone is very new to Discord, and would like to simply poke their
head in and look around, they are welcome to use this link:
https://discord.gg/CCQqbqu. You can simply follow that link in a
browser, and it will toss you in the server with a nick of your
choice, without requiring an account or anything. It is then up to you
if you want to actually finalize the account by adding an
email/password/etc. Of course, other things like mobile or desktop
apps are optional, you can use the web interface all you like.
