Countervandalism Network/Channels

CVN logo.svg Countervandalism network

The countervandalism network
is a distinct group. It is neither
affiliated with nor managed by the
Wikimedia Foundation.

The following is a list with our channels on Libera Chat, basic settings, local operators and bots.

Our IRC channel network has grown a lot since the creation of the original #vandalism-en-wp channel (now #cvn-wp-en). CVN has channels for a variety of projects in many different languages, as well as staff channels for specific topics.

This page lists the currently active channels. This page also lists any bots that have been approved to talk in that channel (in addition to CVNBot and cvn-clerkbot). Approval is given by local_op or CVN staff. For a complete list of bots, see Countervandalism Network/Bots.
