As the wiki is not always the best place for an in-depth chat, we've decided to create a channel for you, the wonderful users of the WoWWiki!

Many of the administrators frequent the channel (all are channel operators), and you are cordially invited to chat, discuss wiki issues, notify us of important developments and just generally make yourself at home and chat about anything Warcraftian!

Once you have an IRC client, join the channel at chat.freenode.net, #wowwiki!

  2. Be civil - harassment and insulting behaviour is not tolerated.
  3. Don't spam the channel, and especially do not copy and paste reams of text. If you need to, please use a pasting service such as Pastey.net!
  4. An admin's word is final.
  5. Try and keep generally on topic ... most of the time ;)
  6. Avoid posting lore spoilers.

  • Absolutely anyone is welcome to join - as with the wiki, the IRC channel is a neutral channel. (Admins, of course, still have final say.)
  • Don't come to us with in-depth questions about UI stuff! Please check the IRC article for a link of UI channels.
