Web-based IRC Chat
you'll get some random nickname for the chat. You can easily change it by entering /nick your_wanted_name.
you'll join the #moin channel, use /join #moin-dev if you need that one additionally.
- while this is nice for getting quickly into contact with the moin community, you definitely want to use a non-web-based IRC client if you want to chat regularly with us - see below.
- Network / Server
#moin - Chat channel for generic help, support, and chat. Everything not related to moin core development goes here.
#moin-dev - Chat channel for development of the MoinMoin core or integration of third-party extensions. For logs about this channel see /Logs. Feature requests should go to FeatureRequest or discussed on #moin (above).
Chat software (IRC client software) / Services
Choose a client suitable for your platform:
Xchat (for Linux & Windows)
Pidgin (for Linux & Windows)
Quassel IRC (included in KDE, for Linux/Unix/Mac)
Colloquy (for Mac)
Chatzilla (extension for Firefox (any platform))
More clients can be found at IRChelp.org.
https://www.irccloud.com/ (or in general: use a "bouncer")
Use an IRC Freenode server in your region! See this list.
Please try to read and follow the documentation before asking a question.
If you think you found a bug please search the MoinMoinBugs to see if your bug is not already known.
If you want to propose a new feature look at FeatureRequests to see what others have proposed.
See the topic line for hot stuff. Sometimes your answer is already there.
Supply MoinMoin and Python version (you get this from the page SystemInfo in your wiki!), the server type and server you use, and your operating system (esp. if it is NOT Linux). If you just type in a clear question and provide enough data to easily answer it, there is quite some possibility to get an asynchronous answer some hours later.
- Often you will not get an immediate reply. Just be patient and stay a while. If you have a flatrate, just don't log out! We are there, but we are doing other stuff in parallel.
MoinMoin Voice Chat
There is a nice and good quality F/OSS VOIP conferencing software called mumble.
If you have it installed, click here to talk with us. Please:
- choose your real name as user name (except if you are rather sure people know your nickname)
if you have some specific topic, choose some appropriate sub-channel - otherwise use the main "MoinMoin" channel
We are not there all the time, maybe join IRC channel first to talk about doing a VOIP conference.

Average message lengths
select nick, len from (select nick, count(*) as cnt, round(avg(length(msg)),2) as len from "ircmsgs" where network = "freenode" and channel = "#moin" and timestamp > "2005-01-29" and isStatus = 0 group by lower(nick)) where cnt > 1000 order by len desc limit 10;
select * from (select nick, count(*) as cnt from "ircmsgs" where network = "freenode" and channel = "#moin" and timestamp > "2005-01-29" and isStatus = 0 group by lower(nick)) order by cnt desc limit 10;
Usage of actions (/me)

Discussion about IRC clients
Although I use GAIM myself I do not think it is a good IRC client.This is because it just has an IRC plugin and server messages are a bit strange. BTW. Shouldn't we have some IRC Infos also in MoinMaster? The only thing we have is on MoinMoin. I think we should lead admins and user through a process of: I have a question - what should I do? -- ThiloPfennig 2006-12-11 00:41:48
# if some idiot / bot of an idiot keeps annoying you via query, use something like this: /silence *!*@*.provider.net
