Organized Chat

Unread postAuthor: CS » Thu Jun 26, 2008 6:52 am

We have had organized chats for the community to participate in in past, but we haven't had any in a while. So here I will try to organize yet another. Big changes, stay on your toes!

When:

Previously we have had one set time on a Sunday evening. Perhaps we could have separate chat times for the US, UK, and Australia? Each targeting Sunday afternoon for the chat time. Eh?

Where:

Initially we chatted over AIM, but PC added a chat room to SpudFiles. So we started having the chats here out of convenience, but I mean that thing sucks after 3+ people get in there. So perhaps this time 'round we should give AIM a spin?

What:

In the past we have had chats with a spud related topic in mind. However to stay on a topic proved really hard. So maybe we should just drop the whole themed idear? In any case I would suggest everyone be reasonable in there behavior.

So what you think?

[I don't know if anyone recalls, but back in the ST days someone made a icon to launch the AIM chatroom. Could that be done again?]

Most users outside of America don't use AIM. MSN is the big one for us.

I'm with Larda, IRC all the way. Technically MSN, Yahoo, etc... is a form of IRC, but I like the old school ones.

If I can get SpudFiles moved over to my new server by this weekend then I can make the built in chat here much better.

Yes, I am the guy that owns & operates SpudFiles (along with our extremely helpful moderators).

Well for the time being I'll try and keep the FlashChat open while I am logged on the computer. Beyond that lets just wait out PC's switch, I am in no rush. From there we can see how things have played out.

But from now on lets try getting in the chat room more. I am in there right now, head on over!

PCGuy, take a look at:

CGI:IRC - http://cgiirc.org/
Here´s the CGI:IRC Running: www.rizon.net/webchat

The channel at Rizon.net still "open".
