IRC Channel or Skype group

Post  Karma on Tue Oct 09, 2012 1:47 pm

FForums are useful for posting masses of information, but skype, and especially and preferably irc, lets us communicate and socialize on a more personal level, including helping and teaching.

I think an IRC or a skype would be awesome. It would definitely help with more immediate and personalized conversations, and people could get to know each other much better.

I was thinking about creating a post about this in the misc section, when i noticed that only admins were able to post in there, this has been changed now tough.

But yes, it would be really interesting to have more social conversations on the side of the forum. Is there anyway you could set up a free IRC server? Im not really all into IRC. Have been chatting some trough mIRC, but thats all.

We could set up a skype group for now, and when someone who knows a little more about IRC than us comes along, he/she can set it up for us.

Yeah, most people on this forum should be able to handle that. I myself, just havent laid down too much research on how to handle or set up an IRC server.

Anyway: my skype is Platon.Mephistoles

Feel free to add me and I can set up a group.

It would be easier to just set up a room on a free server such as rizon or mibbit. I have experience in both of those servers when it comes to irc commands and channel moderating.

i'll go ahead and throw my vote into the hat in favor of irc. though, in the interest of full disclosure, i've been on starchat, dalnet, and a couple others since the nineties. so maybe i'm a little biased.

I would also prefer IRC much more then skype, since well, I dont really trust that big of a company for not saving data about conversations and all that stuff.

I checked out the two links you provided real quick but I didnt see where to create an own room or channel. Altough its 12 AM over here and im pretty tired.

it's pretty easy; you typically just register a nickname on the server, then use that name to register a channel with chanserv.
