it is possible with a script. but i think its a feature for original command:

my $SCRIPT  = "global_join";
my $AUTHOR  = "nils_2";
my $Version = "0.01";
my $LICENCE = "GPL3";
my $DESCRIPTION   = "join a channel with servername";

use strict;

weechat::register( $SCRIPT, $AUTHOR, $Version, $LICENCE, $DESCRIPTION, "", "" );

weechat::hook_command($SCRIPT, $DESCRIPTION,
"[servername] [channel] [key]",

"servername: internal servername\n".
"   channel: channel to join\n".
"       key: key for channel\n",
"", "get_args", "");

sub get_args{
my ($getargs) = ($_[2]);

my ($servername,$channel,$key) = split(/ /,$getargs);
    return weechat::WEECHAT_RC_OK if ( not defined $channel);

my $server_pointer = weechat::buffer_search( "irc", "server." . $servername );

  if ( $server_pointer ne "" ){ # server buffer exists?
    weechat::command($server_pointer,"/join " . $channel) if ( $channel ne "" and not defined $key );
    weechat::command($server_pointer,"/join " . $channel . " " . $key) if ( defined $key and $channel ne "" and $key ne "");
    return weechat::WEECHAT_RC_OK;

Hello Sebastien,

it would be fine to join a channel from every buffer i am in. Also a channel on a different server, like:

/join servername.#channel

merry christmas
