Shouldn’t the contact page mention the #musicbrainz IRC channel?


#1

The Contact Us menu item in the MusicBrainz menu refers to the MetaBrainz.org contact page. The text under the IRC header only mentions #metabrainz, but that is the development channel. Shouldn’t the #musicbrainz channel get a mention there too? After all that is where user questions are supposed to go.


#2

@rob, is there any specific reason not to mention #musicbrainz?


#3

I see no reason not to – it is one of the two main channels, so we should add it!

I think this is for “historical” reasons. To begin with metabrainz.org was more separate from musicbrainz.org, so MusicBrainz’s “contact” page was still living at https://musicbrainz.org/doc/Contact_Us – which was made a redirect to https://metabrainz.org/contact in November 2015:
https://wiki.musicbrainz.org/index.php?title=Contact_Us&action=history

But yes, :+1: to changing it. I can put in a PR later.

Edit: Made a ticket:
