Icon-shortcutShortcut: WW:IRC
Wowwikiirc
Icon-chat-48x48 Come join the official WoWWiki IRC channel: chat.freenode.net, #wowpedia

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, #wowpedia!
If you don't want to use an IRC client, you can use our CGI Gateway at http://irc.wikia.com/wow/.

In addition, WoWWiki also has an anti-vandalism IRC channel: chat.freenode.net, #cvn-wikia-wowwiki!

For more info on how to use IRC channels, visit IRC on Wikibooks, and for other channels, see IRC.

Channel rules

  1. Absolutely no discussion of how to exploit, emulated servers and other matters that break the WoW EULA or ToS, unless directly relating to WoWWiki articles. We will not give you links, and you will likely be kicked from the channel.
  2. Be civil - harassment and insulting behaviour are 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!
    • Registration with NickServ is required to speak — to help ward off spam, for help registering type /msg NickServ help register.
  4. An admin's word is final.
  5. Try and keep generally on topic ... most of the time ;)
  6. English is the language of the channel, but many nationalities are present, so you may still be able to get help if English isn't your best language. :)

Useful info

  • Most users idle on the channel. There is absolutely no requirement to be chatty or even respond to comments. Smiley
  • If you have a question, just ask it. If you don't get an answer straight away, you're probably not being ignored — other people are just busy!
  • 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.
  • The IRC channel is not Blizzard customer or technical support. We cannot help you with any problems you may have with your World of Warcraft account and are not obligated to help you with any technical issues.

Logs and stats

  • infobot creates daily logs of the channel history here.

Operators and voicing

  • All administrators and technical staff of WoWWiki are encouraged to join and are automatically given channel operator privileges.
  • Notable contributors of the wiki and WoW-related fansite staff are 'voiced'. This just shows you to be a prolific member of the community and confers no powers.

Counter-vandalism IRC channel

WoWWiki has a counter-vandalism IRC channel! It picks up recent changes that may be vandalism and posts them on the channel.

Join it if you are interested in aiding in the fight against vandalism. chat.freenode.net, #cvn-wikia-wowwiki

Other channels

Please see the IRC article for a list of other IRC channels.
