“The only thing worse than being talked about on IRC is being talked about on LiveJournal. And the only thing worse than that is being talked about on the BBC.”
~ Oscar Wilde on IRC

“I can easily snipe you on this thing, as I disguise myself with many a username, so watch out!”
~ 127.0.0.1 on Uncyclopedia Chatting

For a collection of quotes, see the Uncyc QDB.

NOTE: IRC CHAT IS NOT THE PLACE TO GO LOOKING FOR A MATE OR A PARTNER TO WATCH TV WITH. IT IS FOR PROJECT DISCUSSIONS AND SIMILAR TASKS. FOR MATCHMAKING, PLEASE CHOOSE A SERVICE LIKE EH... I DON'T KNOW... MATCH.COM OR SOMETHING, AND HELP KEEP OUR IRC FILTH FREE. AND IN CASE THAT DIDN'T GO THROUGH YOUR THICK SKULL, YOU WILL BE BANNED FROM THE CHANNEL IF YOU DO.

ALSO NOTE: DO NOT LINK TO PORNOGRAPHY OR SHOCK SITES, PREFERABLY WITHOUT EXCEPTION. IF YOU FIND THAT YOU ABSOLUTELY MUST, BE SURE TO TAG IT AS "NSFW" OR YOU WILL GET BANNED.

Chat

To access the Uncyclopedia IRC channel you have five three options Holy Commandments:

1. Direct IRC link

If your browser supports IRC (like Opera), or if you have an IRC plugin installed for your browser you can click on irc://irc.freenode.net/uncyclopedia to go directly to the channel. This also works for some stand-alone IRC clients that are associated with irc:// URLs in your browser.

(If you are using Firefox or any other Mozilla based browser, you can get the ChatZilla IRC plugin to use this method.)

2. Manual

Or just point your irc client to the mystical coordinates below:

server: irc.freenode.net
port: 6667
channel: #uncyclopedia

UnNews has its own channel as well (#unnews)
There is also a channel for admins (#@uncyclopedia)

3. Web-based CGI:IRC client

If neither of those worked, go to irc.wikia.com/uncyclopedia to launch the web client. It is slow and prone to total existence failure, but serviceable and not usually blocked by libraries and centers of edumacation.


Please note: If you need strictly site-related help (e.g. unbanning, wiki help, etc) try #@uncyclopedia first. You're more likely to find an admin, and less likely to encounter blathering morons. Although if there is nobody in the channel responding, please make your way to #uncyclopedia instead.
