I created the initial page, and really don't care much about the layout. Feel free to go nuts and reorganize. The initial list of users was created from my pirc stats, and not from memory. So the most prolific posters ended up on the list. I'd suggest that if your adding yourself to the list, link to your userpage. Then link to any screenshots, blogs, etc from there. -- xterminus

Major update of the page. Comments and suggestions are more than welcome, and so are edits

List of operators from the future?

its still 29 days until 31.08.2008!

Well, arch is the future after all >_>
But it's fixed now since the date have passed :D


In IRC_Channel#Abbreviations_and_jargon, please remove "(Yes, fine and not f*ing)". The explanation destroys the meta-humor and the repitition of the phrase multiplies that negative effect. --Qubodup 08:11, 27 November 2008 (EST)

And could the fine be change to friendly ? English is not my native anguage, so I don't know if it's grammaticaly correct, but sound way better for my. --Gkrnours 14:01, 5 April 2009 (EDT)

Some grammatical errors:

The inner grammar nazi in me has found a few grammatical errors in the page, but as I'm not an op, I won't change them. I'd be willing to correct them if the powers that be say that I may.

"The only exception are 'away' responses at nick highlight." Should either read "exception is" or "exceptions are"

"Advertising are not allowed unless an op have given you permission to do so." Should read "Advertising is not allowed unless an op has..." Same under the #archlinux-offtopic section.

"The channel topic often contain useful and/or important information." Needs an "s" at the end of "contain".

"Also feel free to notify an channel operator." Should read "...a channel operator...".

"Don't be shy, feel free to help others, 'everyone' got something contribute." Should either read "...'everyone's got..." or ...'everyone' has...

Making it easier for newbs.

Sorry, I didn't see the op-only warning before making a few changes to make it a little clearer on how to connect for first time IRC users like me. I just added some extra verbiage before the IRC commands /connect and /join and some extra verbiage right before the NickServ detail.

I think it is more helpful now though. Trusktr 13:36, 7 September 2010 (EDT)
