Over 2013, WMUK staff members conducted online IRC chat sessions known as office hours. The events provide Wikimedia community members the opportunity to ask questions or provide feedback on the work of the staff member hosting the session. There is generally no set agenda; often, a facilitator would sometimes determine the order of questions, and help to keep things going.

For IRC office hours related to the whole Wikimedia community see Meta.

How to participate

If you haven't used IRC before, it may be easiest to use a web client; this means you don't have to install any software on your computer. Just click here to join in, and then choose a username when prompted: http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=wikimedia-uk You may be prompted to click through a security warning. It's fine.

For more information about IRC software you can install on your computer, go to the Wikipedia entry on IRC or the Meta page on Wikimedia IRC. If using dedicated software, connect to the channel irc:wikimedia-uk connect on the freenode network.
