The size of our community led to the creation of multiple IRC channels. To get a list of all channels on freenode that contain "archlinux" in their name, use the command /query alis list *archlinux*.

#archlinux, the main Arch Linux support channel, and #archlinux-offtopic, the main Arch Linux social channel, have their own article at IRC channel.
