How does this work for things like #wikimania or #wiktionary? Do those stay as they are? Does #meeting.wikimedia also have to change to #wikimedia-meeting? Angela 18:58, 9 Mar 2005 (UTC)

  1. wikimania and #wiktionary will stay where they are, #meeting.wikimedia will be changed to #wikimedia-meeting yes. — Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason 11:34, 10 Mar 2005 (UTC)
  2. new channel #wikiproject has formed at freenode as a meta.wikimedia.org outreach. Please see Wikiproject group for detailia. Quinobi 19:03, 14 July 2005 (UTC)

Will there be "redirects"? Dori | Talk 05:37, 29 Mar 2005 (UTC)

An interesting point. I guess the old names can stay there with an appropriate "topic" containing the new name, at least for a while. - IMSoP 19:51, 5 Apr 2005 (UTC)
Should #wpbootcamp be changed to #wikipedia-bootcamp ? Quinobi 19:03, 14 July 2005 (UTC)
It has been changed as of today. Bjelleklang 15:36, 28 January 2006 (UTC)

The pt: still uses #pt.wikipedia. -- 01:39, 8 February 2006 (UTC)

Indeed! :S I wrote about this situation in more detail here.--Waldir 00:49, 18 November 2006 (UTC) (en/pt)

On Irssi[edit]

This can easily be dealt with using these commands:

/window move left
/window move right

Shall I add this to the page? Thanks. --Xyrael 12:55, 3 June 2006 (UTC)

Just be sure to make clear that the commands are IRSSI only, as in IceChat and other IRC clients, the /window command serves a completely different function (such as generating custom message windows). AmiDaniel 01:26, 18 November 2006 (UTC)
Perhaps I should also note that what I was saying here was that you can move channels about; I don't think I fully grasped what the page was back then. In fact, I have no idea what this edit meant and was surprised to see my name on this talkpage at all. —Xyrael / 21:44, 19 November 2006 (UTC)
