Archiveteam1.png Historical content

This page or section is not really edited any more, probably because the project got abandoned, information is collected somewhere else in a different form etc.

However, this is a good and important record of ArchiveTeam's ancient times, thus must be preserved, but merging it into an other article would be difficult and/or some pieces of information are missing for a new form.

So feel free to read this, but it has probably nothing to be added now. However, if you resurrect the project or find a way to move this data to a fresh place, you can remove this template.

This is a list of some older ArchiveTeam projects' IRC channels. Now we don't collect project IRC channels on a separate page anymore, but back then we did. This list is basically unmodified, as it looked like in June 2015, just the "Status" column was removed. This page should not be edited, is kept for historical reasons.
