A user account is required in order to edit this wiki, but we've had to disable public user registrations due to spam.

To request an account, ask an autoconfirmed user on IRC (such as one of these permanent autoconfirmed members).

Note that if you go to IRC to ask a question, it might take a while to get a reply. It can pay off to stick around for a couple of hours or more.
 
 
 
If you want to run a bot, let us know. If they are useful, e.g. providing logging facilities, then they are more than welcome.

== Getting Started with IRC ==
 
 
 
The simplest way to get started with IRC, if you are not familiar, is by signing up for a free [https://www.irccloud.com/ IRCCloud] account. Once you've done that, you should be logged in to the Freenode server by default. All you'll have to do is join the #whatwg channel. If you tell your browser to use IRCCloud for irc:// links, then just [irc://irc.freenode.net/whatwg clicking this link] should also take you there.
