Convos has moved to irc.libera.chat
The #convos channel has moved to irc.libera.chat. You might still see people in the #convos channel on freenode, but that will hopefully soon change.
The Freenode network has been overtaken by a corporate entity, resulting in the staff members quitting and starting a new IRC network called "libera".
You can read more about the details on kline.sh, but here is a quote from the post:
> I cannot stand by such a (hostile) takeover of the freenode network, and I > am resigning along with most other freenode staff.
Here are some instructions, if you want to prevent your personal account to get into the hands of an unknown corporate entity:
# Change the account information /msg nickserv set password /msg nickserv set email # Delete your freenode account data: /msg nickserv drop <account name> <password>
Moving to the new network, you might want to register your nick:
/msg nickserv register <password> <email>
If you get any error such as "Sending email failed, sorry! Registration aborted.", it just means that the network has a lot of new registrations and is unable to handle your request. Please wait a couple of minutes and try again. (Flooding #libera with questions is not helpful)
Convos v6.18 has been released with new defaults, and the official webpage has been updated with links to https://libera.chat/, instead of freenode.
Looking forward to seeing you on the new network!
