From Wikimedia India Chapter
Jump to: navigation, search

Internet Relay Chat(IRCs) are a popular off-wiki hangout of Wikipedians. #wikimedia-in connect is the most popular among them among the Indian Wikimedian community and the official Wikimedia India channel. There are also several Indian Language IRC channels like #wikipedia-ml connect, #wikipedia-kn connect etc


From time to time, Wikimedia India conduct planned online IRC chat sessions.This generally comes with a set agenda. These sessions provide Wikimedia community members in India the opportunity to discuss specific topics, ask questions, provide feedback & suggestions and share ideas during the session. The pre-announced sessions are logged.

Announcements are made on this page, and on the wikimediaindia-l & Wikimedia India chapter members mailing lists.

How to participate

If you haven't used IRC before, it may be easiest to use a web client; this means you don't have to install any software on your computer. Just click here to join in, and then choose a username when prompted: http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=wikimedia-in You may be prompted to click through a security warning. It's fine. Another option is used a Mozilla Firefox Browser Addon like Chatzilla

For more information about IRC software you can install on your computer, go to the Wikipedia entry on IRC or the Meta page on Wikimedia IRC. If using dedicated software, connect to the channel #wikimedia-in on the freenode network.
