Just wanted to say I've been coming to the site for awhile now and just started posting on the forums. I remember going to the chatroom once and it being totally hectic making things hard to actually talk about. As I saw in another topic here though, I think users would enjoy a chatroom that wasn't so.... crazy.
So I thought I'd run this idea by both Users and the Administration of this site. I help run and IRC (Internet Relay Chat) Network, we have a pretty good community and strong dedicated servers, and we'd more than happy to have you guys make a channel on our servers. IRC allows you to make and run a channel. You can appoint users to Operate the channel, kicking or banning disruptive users. The administration has FULL control over the channel (aka chatroom) and can add or remove Operator or other access levels. Also IRC allows you to REGISTER your nickname, stopping any type of identity misunderstandings.
If you guys are interested I can get into specifics about how (some of you may already be familiar with IRC) it works, a list of commands, and our network/server statistics.
Well I hope you'll like this idea. All feedback is appreciated. Feel free to PM or Email me with any questions
