If you're not sure what channel to use, or where to ask a question, ask at #mediawiki. If you're in the wrong place, someone will direct you to the best place to ask your question.
It's okay to "lurk" (hang around and listen without talking), and sometimes you won't get an answer immediately. This explanation tells you a little more about how to use IRC channels to talk about open source.
Before using #mediawiki for help:
- Check that this is the best method of communication for your particular problem.
- Make sure you are familiar with IRC etiquette.
- Don't ask if you can ask a question - just ask it!
Updates from many of the repositories are posted (and sometimes discussed) here, thanks to the "wikibugs" bot.
This channel is primarily meant for getting technical help on Wikimedia projects, such as with templates or gadgets. The participants might also answer technical questions about MediaWiki in general.
Don't worry too much about choosing the right channel. If you're not sure, just use #mediawiki.
