Client-specific help[edit]

The section on identifying on connect is mIRC-specific. Help for other clients would be good here. (I'll try to contribute the Chatzilla equivalent.) SpareSimian (talk) 22:58, 19 November 2007 (UTC)

Section about how to get help[edit]

I think it would be good to have a section about what to expect and how to behave. Perhaps something like <http://workaround.org/getting-help-on-irc>. I far too often see people joining the channel, saying "hello, is anyone here?" and leaving frustrated after 3 minutes... -- Duesentrieb-formerly-Gearloose (?!) 11:49, 19 April 2009 (UTC)

Contents is appearing on the right side[edit]

Does anyone know how to fix this? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Canadafreakazoid (talkcontribs) 18:19, 23 July 2009 (UTC)


Common Postal cards[edit]

Is a screenshot from a scanned common postal card (from an other website) ok to use ? I mean the copyright is clearly not the website's or a collector of postal cards that have contributed with the original postal card. And how about screenshots from a game ? I'm very UN-familiar with the copyright issues and have only used my own photograhies in articles. (I have contributed mainly in swedish wika but also in danish and english) Very greatful for any answer Awayanoder (talk) 12:25, 19 January 2010 (UTC)

ChatZilla out of date[edit]

The ChatZilla instructions are out of date... --- cymru lass (hit me up)(background check) 20:56, 23 August 2010 (UTC)

I've updated them a bit. Poke me if they're still difficult to understand. Thanks, PeterSymonds (talk) 21:44, 23 August 2010 (UTC)

Questions about Mibbit[edit]

Under "What do I need to connect?" at the very bottom, it mentions the Mibbit chat client. However, this client will not connect to freenode, for which this tutorial was originally designed. Should the mention of Mibbit therefore be removed, or simply a notice informing readers that Mibbit cannot be used to connect to freenode?
