(For the record, you were not the one arguing on semantics, you had a
genuine question and I was happy you asked it.)
I said #wikipedia *should* be the mother channel, but it's crap now. :)
That's what we are trying to change. By all means, discuss anything you
want about it. :)

Okay... I thought I cleared this up, but obviously
Now it's a bit more clear :D
But please, can we stop arguing on semantics and get
the guidelines? They
only apply to #wikipedia, so you do not need to think that you are going
get attacked by them in your local language's
Could I propose, also, an OT brainstorming?
You say: #wikipedia is a "mother channel", a IRCchannel that should
represent all the languages.
It is not perceived so.
It's perceveid like a (messy) english-language channel.
The problem is: we have a lot of localized channels that works well.
What's the meaning of #wikipedia? Why does it exist? What should it
offer to the visitors?
I suppose we should rethink it...
