We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

What is IRC?[edit | edit source]

Internet Relay Chat (IRC) is a form of real-time Internet text messaging (chat) or synchronous conferencing. It is mainly designed for group communication in discussion forums, called channels, but also allows one-to-one communication via private message as well as chat and data transfer (including file sharing). Here on Gamepedia, we maintain a number of channels to promote real-time discussion of the work happening on our wikis.

Basic IRC commands[edit | edit source]

Basic IRC commands can be used by everyone. Commands begin with a forward slash followed directly by the command: (Note: Do not type < or > in these commands)

/join #<channel> Connects you to <channel>. All channels are preceded by a hash (#).
/part #<channel> Disconnects you from a <channel>.
/nick <NewNick> Changes your current nick to <NewNick>.
/me <action> Displays <action> in the chatroom (i.e. /me waves yields “*JohnSmith waves” to the chatroom).
/away <Message> Sets your status to Away and sends <Message> to anyone who messages you.
/msg <nick> <message> Sends <message> only to <nick> rather than the channel at large.
/quit Terminates your IRC connection.
