We have a (not very lively) IRC chat at ircs://libera.chat/kanboard
Unfortunately there is no Subject line. And it seems that there is no known channel admin to create a chat. It seems that the only possibility to create one is:
- We agree on a day to change that
- We agree on a volunteer to do the job (The fist who will not have said now within 24 hrs here )
- Latest in the morning (09:00 UTC or so) of the day from (1) all will have left the Channel. Means: Channel will have gone.
- The volunteer from (2) visits #kanboard. That means, he recreates the channel
- He automatically will become channel admin(?) and can add a summary
- Interested people return to (or visit first time) #kanboard
- Everything is fine
Please correct me if I’m wrong.
Can you agree with this proceeding? And with my suggestion Sunday, June 5th for (2)?
Alternative might be to register the / a channel?
We had this conservation on ircs://libera.chat/libera
[2022-05-17 17:45:17] <Rainer_Bielefeld> Is there a more comfortable way te get a channel admin and a subject for IRC chat ircs://libera.chat/kanboard than described on Add Subject to IRC chat channel #kanboard ?
[2022-05-17 17:47:13] Rainer_Bielefeld: not sure i understand what you mean?
[2022-05-17 17:47:17] Rainer_Bielefeld: Channel registration | Libera Chat
[2022-05-17 17:47:35] the first person to join a channel gets ops
[2022-05-17 17:47:36] ben: There is an existing channel but it’s not theirs so they don’t have control
[2022-05-17 17:47:41] ahh
[2022-05-17 17:48:11] ben: Easiest way is to do a group registration, otherwise you indeed need to do the “wait for the right person to get ops” to register
[2022-05-17 17:49:00] it’s not registered
[2022-05-17 17:49:03] kee: ok… thanks…
[2022-05-17 17:49:39] ben: I think that’s what they’re trying to fix: register the channel so a topic can be set
[2022-05-17 17:49:54] message chanserv
[2022-05-17 17:49:56] We’ll see once a reply arrives
[2022-05-17 17:50:05] <Rainer_Bielefeld> Remco: I’m ony IRC User sith limited knowledge. Where can I find a manual concerning group registration?
[2022-05-17 17:50:12] ask for help from chanserv
[2022-05-17 17:50:12] RED ALERT
[2022-05-17 17:50:34] whats up
[2022-05-17 17:50:43] an inverted down
[2022-05-17 17:50:53] Rainer_Bielefeld: It’s on the website I linked you. ben in here can help you further
[2022-05-17 17:52:24] =-= Modus #libera +o el von ChanServ
[2022-05-17 17:54:08] Rainer_Bielefeld: it’s a process external to IRC, using email and proof of ownership (after speaking to someone on irc)
May be we also should add a hint concerning IRC to Kanboard — Kanboard documentation ?
This is a chat room on IRC, there is IMHO no need for a subject. Everyone can talk/write something regarding kanboard.
BTW, there is
14:29 -!- No topic set for #kanboard
Trying to introduce a subject is IMHO somewhat strange, it disturbs the usual chat life.
Great idea, should be done after you got control over the channel #kanboard.
May be you should explain that to the other thousands of chat groups who did not understand IRC:
And here the ones which understood:
Ahh, I see. By subject, you meant the topic (thema), right?
BTW, I was able to modify topic of channel #kandoard.
09:26 -!- Topic for #kanboard: All about kanboard
Yup, Subject was my (very) free translation …
And I see, Topic has been added. Looks better!
My suggestion: extend (after some discussion or at least thinking about it all together) to
“All about kanboard, the free and open source Kanban project management software | New to IRC? Read Getting help on IRC – workaround.org | You can also ask for assistance at Questions - Kanboard”
Fully agree. But first, we (you?) should get the channel #kanboard registered.
Plausible approach! I will create an issue here for “Register IRC channel #kanboard” later to find out whether there are concerns.
If there are no concerns we will find a volunteer (may be me) do do that.
