IRC chat added to the forum

Postby YellowGTO » 2014-Jan-Sat-15-Jan

I belong to a few forums that have an IRC chat box at the top, and think it would be great for this forum

http://qwebirc.org/

What do you think? Link to freenode #printrbot.

The forum had a chat option for a few months back in 2012. It wasn't particularly popular and was removed. A forum search for the word "chat" shows very few references, the OP might have been the last request, and this topic is within a month of being 2 years old.

It would be pretty simple to start something on that bird-like tweaty thing, or whatever's (whippersnap?) replaced it since I last paid attention. Poundsigh PrinterbotTalk or hashedpotatos something else?

Back when I was a Univac mainframe programmer all the OS commands started with an @ symbol, which the exec8 community called a masterspace. That's a lot cooler than taking a pound sign and calling it a hashtag.
