Subject [Httpd Wiki] Update of "IRC" by jmcg
Date Tue, 18 May 2010 23:53:31 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Httpd Wiki" for change notification.

The "IRC" page has been changed by jmcg.
http://wiki.apache.org/httpd/IRC

--------------------------------------------------

New page:
= #httpd Channel on Freenode =
Scratchpad for IRC Guidelines

I'd like to take `##windows` as an example, since they really have a very warm and helpful
page on that topic:

http://groups.google.com/group/windows/web/irc

They link to the general Freenode Catalyst: http://freenode.net/catalysts.shtml and Channel
Guidelines: http://freenode.net/channel_guidelines.shtml
Their own Help Guidelines can be found here:: http://groups.google.com/group/windows/web/Help%20guidelines


We most often link to:
http://workaround.org/getting-help-on-irc

and to http://www.mikeash.com/getting_answers.html

Those two are really good - if anyone actually takes the time to read them -- the latter should
probably be linked on this page here as well.

Some people link http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html -- which in my opinion
is a little dated, too long for the general IRC attention span. Also the title is a perfect
invitation for discouragement.

I believe what's really important for a good climate is that not just our users, who seek
out our help and enlightenment, abide by our rules, but that we, the moderators, do too.

RFC.
