Topic: IRC channel

today i logged in to #opensonic for the first time... but it was empty! and the topic still refers to 0.1.3...

is the channel dead or does it have special purposes like meetings?

We need to have another meeting, for sure. We haven't had one for over 6 months, I believe.

But as to it being dead, I'm not 100 percent certain. It certainly has been inactive...

Re: IRC channel

We have and IRC channel? Mmmm... And do we do meetings? Lol. I think we can use for more things than the meetings, like a chat, for talk more big_smile big_smile. The forum is some slow, and communication between members is important smile

Piece of cake...!

Re: IRC channel

well considering our most active members, maybe the forum is still our best shot, because we have people from many different time zones. of course there are times that we can all meet, but still, the IRC channel would be pretty much empty.
maybe if we give away free cookies in the channel... tongue

Re: IRC channel

IRC is rather old, but still makes a great meeting spot. those who don't have or don't want to download an IRC client may try this:

http://webchat.freenode.net/

Freenode's own Web-based IRC client. smile

skype is a kind of online call but then free, and there is also a possibility with the webcam.

You can do group conversations and calls. And also screenshare your stuff to one another. Plus, you don't have to find a client for it like IRC.

Re: IRC channel

I hope this is one case where reviving a topic after 5 years (especially by a new user such as myself) won't annoy everyone smile Anyway:

I play and occasionally contribute to several open-source games for almost a decade now. For projects I'm very interested in, I permanently join their IRC channel on Freenode as well. This makes it easier to keep in touch, discuss ideas, etc. Since OpenSurge looks like a great engine and idea for its genre, I certainly plan to stick around. IRC would be pretty helpful and nice, and I support the idea of a channel.

I noticed that #opensonic is still registered and working, but no one is currently there right now. I decided to add it to my auto-join list, at least for the time being... in case that's any encouragement or someone might pop in occasionally. I don't tend to chat a lot unless someone highlights me, but I'm always around when I'm not away from my computer. Cheers.

Re: IRC channel

Good idea. I'll try to join the IRC some days, let's see if I find you there. Maybe that encourages our users to use that excellent tool n.n
