The state of the chat.

I do not like the new chat. That is common knowledge. What does bother me however is the drop in numbers of those using the chat now. Since the old chat was totally removed the shoutbox got used a little and then died. The new chat is dead and has none of the homely the old one did. I know I am the one that started the who call for an updated chat but I am sitting in the "Careful what you wish for camp". I just wanted an audio update on the old chat. Even if that can not be done I would like it back or at least the choice to use it. Like when the two chats where one the same page on top of each other. I just do not want to see the chat die and I think it is.

i agree... i want my old chat back ;(


I say what I want to say and I do what I want to do.
There is no in between.
People will either love you for it or hate you for it.

Riesig seems like the type of person that would jack off in public and think nothing of it.
He does. And people join him anyways.
What, NO!

And then later:

Fapping and lifting 5 gallons of water is dumb.

Also, because i'm skinny asian.


My worst fear is not being able to make any more threads.

Having never used IRC before, Adapting to this new one is not fun =[

Also it does not look anywhere as clean. It feels to industrial whereas the old chat felt like it belonged here!

Thing is the IRC setup couldn't possibly have been done worse.

But this whole "IRC sucks" thing is soley based on the fact that the webchat doesn't look as nice as the HTML chat right?
The IRC applet can easily be replaced by a different one.
If we disregard looks, IRC is more stable and has no lag. It's technically clearly superior.

Having two chats is totally idiotic. In the best case one chat wouldn't be used at all and in the worst case people would use one of both and half the conversations couldn't be seen by any given person.

If we migrated from freenode, which sucks anyway, we could use the mibbit plugin I think. I'll assume the whole "Mibbit didn't work" issue was because people didn't realise that freenode sucks blocks mibbit.

Example of how mibbit looks and is used:

An IRC network that I really like and where we can use mibbit would be
It's quicker on startup, better maintained and also less populated, which means less random stuff happening and more free nicknames.
For example I know for a fact that the nick Dice is free on Sorcery.

First of all we should make a mobile version of the site. I have huge fingers, and I'm tired of tapping the home button when I want to log in.

No Contortrix. It has to do with:
Needing to log in
Ever changing names.
Overcomplcated commands
Captch to log in.

Colours and lights are not the issue. Ease of use and knowing who is who is the issue.

I'd suggest a setup on irc.imperium.CA
I know the server admins and I hosted my Channel for 5 years there. No problems at all, there's even bot support for kicking, filters, aop, hop etc
