IRC Channel (Chatroom)

Post by leftylink » Sun Oct 12, 2008 7:40 am

EDIT: New IRC channel details here.

Server: irc.geekshed.net
Channel: #metropolisdawn

Old post: below:

Hey,

I keep hearing requests for some sort of chatroom for the members. We were concerned about spam and clutter if we put some sort of "shoutbox" on the main website, so we decided on an IRC channel.

Network: DALNet (Website: http://www.dal.net)
Channel: #urbanassault

How do you use IRC? Two ways:

1) Go to http://www.dal.net, and look at the Chat Now! Box on the left side of the screen. Type any username, and click on the Go! button.
2) Download any IRC-capable client such as mIRC, Pidgin, Trillian, Miranda, or Chatzilla for Firefox, and set it up to connect to DALNet.

Connect to one of DALNet's servers, or the default server irc.dal.net
Then, type the command /join #urbanassault to join our IRC channel! Easy!

Jan 7, 2010... nobody uses IRC, do they...?

w00t

I can't use Alfa there since it's being used by the server enforcer, so I'm known as Cannabitch over there.

I can't get into it, the pop-up comes up but it has the address bar as about:blank, and has that white picture with the red X on it.

Use an IRC client. I prefer mIRC. (Reminds me of old times with big brother.)

Also did you guys now that IRC was invented by a finn?

Yeah, sorry, I had too many issues with the shoutbox, and I don't want to have to deal with any spamming issues. Here's my thinking...
The point of asking for the chat was to be able to talk in real time to anyone else who is online, right? But if you just wanted to use the chatbox to leave messages that others can reply to later... well, that is what the forum is for. So I picked the medium that was easy to manage and that also met the goal of being able to chat in real time with other members - IRC.

Sorry, maybe I was unclear on how to connect to DALNet's servers...

I am adding these instructions to my first post..

Connect to one of DALNet's servers, or the default server irc.dal.net
(if you already have chatzilla you can try clicking on this link... [url=irc://irc.dal.net]irc://irc.dal.net[/url] )
