As the error message "Cannot send to nick/channel: #mediawiki-i18n" hints, your message was not sent to the channel or channel users, I don't see it. Probably some kind of antispam measure from freenode. Try an IRC client like HexChat.

strange because the connexion to the channel is accepted; so how can we be made "identified users" instead ?

= End of /MOTD command.
[12:29] == Usermode change: +i
[12:29] == gateway/web/freenode/ip.XX.XX.XX.XX is now your hidden host (set by syn.)
[12:29] -freenode-connect- Due to the persistent ongoing spam, all new connections are being set +R ('''block messages from unidentified users''') and will be scanned for vulnerabilities. This will not harm your computer, and vulnerable hosts will be notified.

--> If a channel is set to mode +r, you won't be able to join it unless you are registered <--

Unfortunately due to large amounts of spam, keeping it all open was not possible.

... so no possible usage of IRC ( as recommended in "See also the FAQ or try to catch us in IRC." for the time being.
