Wikipedia sta migrando alla rete IRC Libera Chat. Discussioni in merito si possono leggere presso Special:Permalink/21595329#Freenode (IRC).

Creare un account

Aggiungi la rete di Libera Chat irc.libera.chat al tuo client IRC. Si veda https://libera.chat/guides/connect per dettagli.

Sarà necessario registrare nuovamente il tuo nome utente con NickServ. Dettagli presso https://libera.chat/guides/registration

After creating your account, it is recommended to do the following to provide greater security of your account:

/msg nickserv set enforce on

It is also recommended that, once you create your account, you also make an edit to your user page, confirming that you are the owner of the account on Libera Chat (to avoid impersonation attempts).

Cloaks

After you've registered join #libera-cloak and say !cloakme. This will give your account a generic user/YourName cloak to hide your IP address. It should happen quickly; wait a while and try again if you're not immediately cloaked and kicked.

If you had a Wikimedia-branded cloak on Freenode, it will not transfer to Libera.Chat and you will need to obtain a new cloak. Type /msg wmopbot cloak (without any preceding spaces) into any IRC window. You will then be sent a private message with instructions on how to get your cloak. The cloak will not be applied instantly; please be patient.

If you do not also enable SASL authentication, your IP address is revealed to each channel in the brief period between connecting and identifying to NickServ.

Connection issues

You might run into issues connecting to Libera Chat when using a secure port. Libera Chat has a more modern TLS stack than Freenode; most importantly older versions of TLS (specifically 1.0 and 1.1) are not supported on Libera Chat. To determine whether this is the issue you are experiencing; try connecting without TLS on port 6667.

To fix this, you will most likely need to upgrade your IRC client. It is strongly recommended to connect using TLS. It's the equivalent of using HTTPS to browse a web page.

Web frontends

There is a built-in web frontend for Libera Chat. You also may use one of these alternatives:

Join channels

Most channels are named the same on Libera Chat as they were on Freenode.

A few channels have taken this opportunity to rename themselves:

Freenode channel (old) Libera Chat channel (new)
#cvn-unifications #wikimedia-unifications
#mediawiki-i18n #translatewiki
#wikimedia-ai #wikimedia-ml
#wikipedia-bag #wikipedia-en-bag
#wikimedia-discovery #wikimedia-search
#wmhack #wikimedia-hackathon
#wmcee #wikimedia-cee

Register channels

To register a former Freenode channel on Libera Chat, you will need operator (+o) permissions. If after joining your new channel, there is nobody with +o permissions, then a Wikimedia group contact will need to register the channel for you. Please ask in #wikimedia-ops (on Libera Chat) for assistance. For channels that do not fall under a Wikimedia namespace, you'll have to ask Libera Chat staff in #libera for help.

/msg chanserv register #channel
/msg chanserv set #channel guard on
/mode #channel +b $j:#wikimedia-bans

/msg chanserv flags #channel *!*@libera/staff/* +Aiotvr

If you want to announce your channel move, feel free to copy the Cloud-announce email, which is CC0 licensed.

Differences from Freenode

There is no more /msg chanserv access #channel list command, instead use /msg chanserv flags #channel.

Bridging channels

The bridgebot was briefly used to relay messages between Freenode and Libera Chat channels, creating a bridge between the two, but it has now been removed from all Freenode channels. Bridges between Freenode and Libera Chat should be considered a temporary measure that should be removed once documentation has been updated and the majority of your users have migrated to the Libera Chat channel.

Closing Freenode channels

The new Freenode staff have deleted the services database, which included all channel registrations. Some channels have been recreated by Freenode staff or others, but they are not under the control of Wikimedia volunteers. It is no longer possible to close channels using the instructions below, but they have been retained for historical interest.
