== Offtopic-statistics ==
: Could one of the ops perhaps add the link to the stats page? http://hax0r.se/aotstats.html
: I accidentally added it to the entry, since I missed the "warning".
== Simplify introduction ==
Following [[Template talk:Hatnote#Deletion]], and also according to [[Help:Style#Preface or introduction]], I'd like to rewrite/simplify the actual introduction and the "Introduction" section like this:
<div style="border:3px dashed #bcd;padding:0.5em;">
This article is about '''#archlinux''', the main Arch Linux support [[wikipedia:Internet Relay Chat|IRC]] channel, and '''#archlinux-offtopic''', the main Arch Linux social channel, both available on the [http://www.freenode.net/ Freenode] network.
There are also a number of other channels dedicated to Arch Linux maintained by community members: see [[IRC channels]] for a listing.
{{Warning|Do not edit this page unless you are a channel op in #archlinux. You are welcome to use the discussion page.}}
<h2> Usage </h2>
To join the channels, you need an irc client. Wikipedia has a [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_IRC_clients list of irc clients]. The following commands can be used inside your IRC client to connect to a server and join a channel:
/connect chat.freenode.net
/join #archlinux

== Mention SASL ==
'''<nowiki>#archlinux</nowiki>''' needs authentication to NickServ for joining the channel. This may cause [[XChat#Issues_joining_channels|race conditions]]. SASL solves this problem by authenticating directly after connection, and is supported by [https://freenode.net/sasl/ most IRC clients] (though [[irssi]] may have issues in Arch). Alternatively, you can set a delay as mentioned in [[XChat]].
