From IndieWeb
(Redirected from irc-people)

The chat names page has a list of chat regulars sorted by nickname with their website and usual timezone(s), and is used for icons next to nicknames in IndieWeb chat logs.



Part of the point of this page is to have individuals themselves edit this page and add their URL and icon as they intend it to show up in chat logs. If you see someone on chat who lacks a URL or icon, encourage them, per welcoming.

If you're joining from Slack, and you have spaces or special characters in your name, you'll need to add the IRC version of your name to this list. You can see what your IRC name is by viewing the chat logs after you say something.

Timezone names: Note: the name of a city does not imply that someone lives there. It's from the list of timezone names. E.g. US 48-state folks can typically just use:

  • "America/Los_Angeles" (Pacific), "America/Denver" (Mountain), "America/Chicago" (Central), or "America/New_York" (Eastern)






  • ... add yourself (and sort yourself into the above, unless your chat nickname really is last alphabetically :)

Timezone Aliases

Through usage, it's apparent that having aliases for IANA Time Zone names would help with being more permissive with what people enter for themselves. Here's a list of alias/actual names of time zones:



Why is my image not in the logs

Q: I added my image to the above list of chat names, and it shows up there, so why isn't it showing up in the logs?

A: Wait five minutes and reload.
