Can we consider changing the network then, if our community and FreeNode
can't get along?

Usually admins on en.wikipedia. Several people used #wikipedia to
contact me for help, as I'm an admin on sh.wikipedia, and our channel is
mostly empty. It's easier to have a centralized place where people can
both direct you and help you.

I am bold enough to go and reconstruct AfD on en.wikipedia. But I don't
think changing the rules and desysoping all the admins that took part in
it would be a way to go.
