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". —This unsigned comment is by Dunz0r (talk) 17:36, 10 September 2011‎. Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

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:

This article is about #archlinux, the main Arch Linux support IRC channel, and #archlinux-offtopic, the main Arch Linux social channel, both available on the 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.

Usage

To join the channels, you need an irc client. Wikipedia has a 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

#archlinux needs authentication to NickServ for joining the channel. This may cause race conditions. SASL solves this problem by authenticating directly after connection, and is supported by most IRC clients (though irssi may have issues in Arch). Alternatively, you can set a delay as mentioned in HexChat. -- Alad (talk) 15:40, 11 August 2014 (UTC)

Fixed in revision 329918, closing.
