As most of you are aware, we use IRC as our primary method of off-wiki communication. Because we have such a large IRC commmunity on freenode, I think that now may be a good time to elect a Group Contact and have him (or her) file a Group Contact Form to make him (or her) become the official representative of Uncyclopedia on freenode and officially make Uncyclopedia a registered group there. The main responsibilities of the Group Contact will be to manage channels in our namespace (#uncyclopedia and possibly #uncyc-*), act as a representative of Uncyclopedia to freenode staff, grant and revoke uncyclopedia cloaks, and solve problems related to our channels and users on freenode. Currently, the form requires that the person filing it be some sort of official representative and that a lot of personal info (which is kept confidential to staff only) be given so that the forms can be verified and so that our existence outside of IRC can be proven. Because I don't want to do it myself, I think the community should decide who our contact is. --Sir Starnestommy Icons-flag-us (TalkContribsCUN) 00:48, Jul. 12, 2008

Update: I think an old form was filed by Angela a few years ago. I'll check on its status next time I have a chance. --Sir Starnestommy Icons-flag-us (TalkContribsCUN) 00:49, Jul. 12, 2008

For those of you who can't or don't want to read, vote for uncyclopedia's group contact. --Sir Starnestommy Icons-flag-us (TalkContribsCUN) 00:51, Jul. 12, 2008

Another update: First of all, there is no voting limit. Second, any candidate can reject their nomination. Finally, this form won't be filed if the one that Sannse filed a long time ago gets passed. --Sir Starnestommy Icons-flag-us (TalkContribsCUN) 04:05, Jul. 12, 2008

Update! (again): I just checked with the senior staff and the old GCF that Sannse filed a long time ago is still in the queue waiting to be processed. --Sir Starnestommy Icons-flag-us (TalkContribsCUN) 17:01, Jul. 14, 2008

How will this affect my Uncyc- channels? I have #Uncyc-cyber (please don't ask) and #uncyc-lite (It's supposed to be for serious #uncyclopedia talk, but demand flittered away after the strong initial support). currently registered, as well as #wikia-cabal. Other than that, I support this idea.     EugeneKay wuz here (whine thank)   17:11, Monday 14 July 2008   Edit: I lied. I don't have #wikia-cabal registered, I'm just on the access list there.

They can have their ownership transferred to the group contact if he or she requests it. If you have permission from him or her to keep it or he or she doesn't ask for it, I don't think there would be any problems. --Sir Starnestommy Icons-flag-us (TalkContribsCUN) 17:14, Jul. 14, 2008

JSharp has just been approved as the Group Contact for Wikia, Uncyclopedia, and many other wikis. Because of this, he now has control of #uncyclopedia and the #uncyclopedia-* namespaces as well as uncyclopedia/* cloaks. I'm not sure what the cloaking rules are for these cloaks, however. --Sir Starnestommy Icons-flag-us (TalkContribsCUN) 20:27, Jul. 29, 2008

Sweet, that means it's not my problem. Now, let's hassle him for cloaks. -- Sir Codeine K·H·P·B·M·N·C·U·Bu. · (Harangue) 20:32, 29 July 2008 (UTC)
I wouldn't do that yet... I'm not sure if he knows about it or what cloaking scheme he'll use for Uncyclopedia's cloaks. It's very likely that the cloaks will be uncyclopedia/user-name if he's going to do our cloaks in the same way Wikia does theirs, but I'm not sure if he's going to allow different cloaks. --Sir Starnestommy Icons-flag-us (TalkContribsCUN) 20:37, Jul. 29, 2008
