I'm tempted to move this, since titles beginning with "WN:" usually are redirects to a longer title. How does Wikinews:Internet Relay Chat sound? —Zachary talk 00:03, 14 May 2007 (UTC)

That sounds like it would be better. Funpika 01:28, 14 May 2007 (UTC)

Web interface[edit]

The web interface has been down for quite some time now. Who can we contact to get this up and running again? —Zachary talk 10:16, 16 May 2007 (UTC)

It has been like that on and off for quite a while. DragonFire1024 10:17, 16 May 2007 (UTC)
If I get some time this week I will get CGI:IRC setup on my server. --Cspurrier 22:17, 22 May 2007 (UTC)

freenode webchat is working and can be hotlinked to load channels: http://webchat.freenode.net/?randomnick=1&channels=wikinews%2Cwikinews-en Mike Chelen (talk) 20:52, 28 October 2009 (UTC)

The link on the page already does the channel spec, but I added the random nick. --ShakataGaNai ^_^ 23:26, 28 October 2009 (UTC)

login on this page[edit]

How about putting the login box on this actual page. It can be done with javascript (See User:Bawolff/sandbox/irc.js after putting:

var url = "http://en.wikinews.org/w/index.php?title=user:Bawolff/sandbox/irc.js&action=raw&ctype=text/javascript&dontcountme=s";
var scriptElem = document.createElement( 'script' );
scriptElem.setAttribute( 'src' , url );
scriptElem.setAttribute( 'type' , 'text/javascript' );
document.getElementsByTagName( 'head' )[0].appendChild( scriptElem );

on special:mypage/monobook.js). This more or less works right now, theres just a couple lose ends on it to tie up (like making channel a dropdown, and some other js stuff, shouldn't take that long). What do you think? Bawolff 21:07, 3 June 2007 (UTC)

Yes, why not. --Steven Fruitsmaak (Reply) 11:07, 5 June 2007 (UTC)
ok, do a hard refresh of the page + http://en.wikinews.org/w/index.php?title=mediawiki:common.js&action=raw&ctype=text/javascript&dontcountme=s Bawolff 03:51, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

WikinewsLinker[edit]

The source for the linker bot is at Wikinews:Internet Relay Chat/WikinewsLinker Source now. In case anybody wants to run it themselves (with a different username than WikinewsLinker) or if you're just curious to how it works. Zachary 09:50, 15 June 2007 (UTC)
