The occasional off-topic discussion about real life and events at Wikimedia is permitted in moderate quantities.
Forbidden behavior
Additionally, there are certain rules we strictly enforce to create a healthy discussion environment:
  1. No spamming/advertising

  3. No pasting code snippets longer than 2-3 lines (use a pastebin for that)
People who are persistently disruptive may be temporarily or permanently banned from the channel.
You should also avoid publishing any kind of potentially personal information on the channel as it is publicly logged and viewable by all. If absolutely needed, feel free to send a private message to your recipient.
