Talk:Legacy (IRC channel)


I'm sure #legacy predates 2004.

Prior to #legacy on Freenode, there was a java IRC applet on the Legacy website. Not sure what network, if any, it was on. According to ChanServ, the current channel was indeed registered in 2004:
-ChanServ-      Channel: #legacy
-ChanServ-   Registered: 1 year 47 weeks 5 days (9h 16m 59s) ago

Due to some drama at freenode, we're migrating #legacy to the libera network. Unsure whether to update the article accordingly, or whether this even still meets notability criteria given Legacy's (and IRC's in general) somewhat niche appeal these days? - DooMAD (talk) 11:56, 16 June 2021 (CDT)

I'd say updating the article is fine. There are a bunch of articles about IRC channels ranging from short to very short, but that's not in itself a ground for deletion IMHO. --Xymph (talk) 12:49, 16 June 2021 (CDT)
+1.  It's great when players value the wiki enough to document current projects, but IMO our main purpose is to be an encyclopedia: any year with an active community is a year that something can affect it.  HTH, Ryan W (living fossil) 20:58, 17 June 2021 (CDT)
