Forum:Closing down IRC Channel
I think you should consider closing down the IRC Channel because it is old and nobody uses it. Everybody is on Discord. Having both might confuse people on what they should use.
You don't even use IRC, so why are you even advocating for its shutdown? Do you even know anything about IRC? Do you know the users who still use it? Do you know Ben?
- Both the IRC channel and the Discord server are linked with a relay and there is still a small community of users that continue to use IRC. The argument that "nobody uses it" is wrong; it is still in use, and being "old" isn't a reason alone to shut it down. We have had no issues with people being confused about what they should use; nearly everyone we've encountered have been able to find the Discord server. And given all of these points above, shutting down the IRC channel really isn't going to make much of a difference; new users are still going to choose Discord over IRC and those who stick with IRC still have access to the Discord server through the relay. You are incredibly misinformed with your beliefs that the IRC channel is ancient. We've sunsetted the on-wiki chat feature for all of the reasons above, but the same cannot be said for the IRC channel. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 11:42, July 28, 2019 (UTC)
