Are there any MSFN Idlers? ...

Recommended Posts

Do we have an IRC server to idle on? I wish I could speak real time with some of our community members. Please let me know. :)

Qz :huh:

not that i know of, pretty much all of us have some type of instant messanger so if there is someone that you rly want to talk to then look in their profile for their IM.

Roger that... thank you very much. So, if I started a channel on EFnet or ANY other network on IRC, would anyone be interested? Just wondering if I should bother. Thanks, later.

Thats true.... Anyways, I vote for the IRC room.

I'll check if its possible to setup an IRC server on this domain itself.

Having an MSFN chatroom on huge networks like EFnet or DALnet, just seems tacky, when we could have it right here itself.

Moreover, if the person that originally created the channel exits without passing on the channel-op powers to someone else, control of the channel will VERY SWIFTLY be lost to hackers.

the should there be moderators for the channels like there are for this board? not just the person who created the channel.

Yes, there will have to be some person or bot, to moderate or over-see the goings-on.

Only difference is, they aren't called mods, but rather - Ops (for channel-operators).

i think an irc room would be very helpful indeed. its always nice to talk to someone in realtime when you have a problem.

I second that. I spend most of my time on IRC anyway. I idle on 2 differnt network at once. I'm an op on one of 'em. It's a small channel for our forum community at bubbas-world. Well, if you can set up the channel prathapml, I'll moderate it. :) Let me know... this sounds like it might take off.

Qz :huh:

I'd most definatly like to speak live on IRC. I think it'd be yet another great asset this community has to offer. Like prathapml said, possibly an IRC applet over HTTP like you see on some sites would be great.

Opinions please.

We'll setup an IRC server on the msfn domain itself, and then the ops & us can enter it. For the rest of the non-savvy public, pjIRC is good i think - It gives a web-interface to access the IRC room. We can set it up such that only members can access the web interface, and they can be all sent straight to a pre-set chatroom.

In other words, when its done, the experts can use irc://irc.msfn.org/#chatroomname (via mIRC, trillian, etc) and the members who just want to enter quick, can chat via web itself, at http://msfn.org/irc

Sample - http://www.pjirc.com/chat/SimpleApplet.php?nick=Guest???

You can see it LIVE in action here: http://broadbandforum.in/irc/
