The recent changes
channels are now located on the Wikimedia IRC network (irc.wikimedia.org:6667
). A channel exists for each public Wikimedia wiki which has been changed since the last time the server was restarted. In general, the name is just the domain name with the .org left off. For example, the changes on the English Wikipedia are available at #en.wikipedia
. However, some wikis which are not Wikipedias have the .wikipedia
suffix (e.g. #mediawiki.wikipedia
). See IRC/Channels#Raw feeds
you'll find a list of people whose nickname on IRC is different from their Wikimedia username.
Many IRC clients allow automated login upon connection
. Usually this is done by entering the username and password (or just password) as the "server password" in the client's settings. Some clients must be closed and restarted to recognize a server password or change of one; just disconnect/reconnect alone won't do it.
