To get access, enter your e-mail addresson this page. You will receive your account credentials through e-mail and be able to join the room(seenaperwrimo.slack.com).
Slack has an advantage over IRC in that there is contextual history preserved for the room, so that people can interact with each other asynchronously (where in IRC you might miss a person by seconds and never know that they had been there at all).
To run a word war, you can go to the #wordwars slack channel and run a command like this:/remind @here Stop writing:hamster: :broken_heart::broken_heart::bangbang::bangbang:!!! in 17 minutes
If you go online, post in the forum too so people who aren't just hanging around in the chat room will know to join you.
