Wiki IRC channel

Would it be beneficial to have an IRC channel for this Wiki? --Firestorm 00:07, 27 May 2011 (GMT)

  • Maybe, though the existing channels might be fine... --Luke-jr 00:32, 27 May 2011 (GMT)

Removal of Freenode links

I removed the Freenode links, and left a brief explanation (the Freenode nickserv and chanserv databases were dropped today, so it's no longer safe to send people there; there's no way to know what they're getting.)

I did that by editing the "Freenode IRC" template page, for simplicity. But if someone reputable in fact decides to re-register one of these channels on the Freenode side, I definitely have no objection to them adding a live link back, by splitting the template in two or just removing the template from all the other channels.

(Please do NOT re-link the channels on the Freenode side merely because they exist again, unless YOU or someone personally known and trusted to you / the community definitely has control of them.)

I've modified the IRC channel list to disambiguate the channels and help guide people towards the network they'd prefer to use. I've also added some history about Freenode and a note that the current head-honcho of the Freenode side is Luke-Jr himself, which should help people.
