From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
- Visit Internet Relay Chat for knowing about IRC.
- Visit WP:IRC to know about the various channels that exist and are related to Wikipedia.
- For those of you who can only use HTTP, a web based version, running CGI:IRC is available. Unless you are satisfied with the HTTP version, which I believe to be very slow and tedious, I think you should continue to the next step.
- You would need to download, preferably mIRC (the software which I use). Other software are also available e.g. Chatzilla.
- Try connecting to freenode.org server on IRC. Or just click on this link #wikipedia-in. It will fire up the software and will take you to the concerned channel.
- If you are not able to connect, then it is because the freenode.org server is not accepting your IP address.*
- You can use a proxy software such as Your-Freedom, which can be downloaded from this link .
- This proxy and anonymity software can be registered, downloaded and collaborated to work with mIRC.
- While installing the software, remember that localhost=127.0.0.1 and the relevant port=8080.
- You need to join #wikipedia or #wikipedia-in (for India-related discussions).
- You can also register your nicks so that others cannot abuse them.
- If you still have any problems, then contact me through gmail. My email address is anirudhsbh at gmail dot com. I might be available through the way of GTalk as well.
