Comment 0 for bug 392799

2000 people is 10 times too many people to have in one IRC channel and expect people to be able to get the help they need. Symptoms of this problem include people constantly asking in the wrong IRC channels after being lost in the noise on #ubuntu.

Any channel that reaches 200 people should have a plan set up to split it into more specific channels.
