- Interviews can be done via audio or video chat, email, or live chat.
- The live chat is on the Internet Relay Chat (IRC) platform.
- The public live chat rooms (channels) are #wikinews and #wikinews-en on irc://irc.libera.chat .
- Many IRC clients are free and open source software, such as Quassel IRC and HexChat. The chat server address is "irc.libera.chat" and channel names are #wikinews or #wikinews-en .
- For more information on IRC, see Wikipedia's article on IRC.
Note: If you're invited to an interview, an individual live chat link for the interview will be sent to you.
