Chat announcement!

Due to the surging level of users in the AIM chat, Diana [glaive goddess] and I decided it would be a wise idea to set up an IRC chat, as it's much more customizable and controllable than an AIM chat, which only exists at the whim of its creator. An IRC channel exists no matter who is online and generally doesn't suck balls like AIM.

As such, I've hosted a Java IRC applet for easy access to the chat for people without a standalone client like mIRC. This will allow you access to the chat through your web browser. To do so, go to http://www.swallowbleach.net/IRC.

For anybody with a standalone IRC client, here's the basic necessary info:

Server: irc.drifterz.net
Channel: #mazda3forums
Port: 6667


Anybody wishing for help in setting up their IRC client, well, you're pretty much on your own unless you use mIRC. I can help you with mIRC, IM me on AIM at AirDC14. Sometime soon, I hope to get around to making a walkthru complete with screenshots, but that hasn't happened yet.

So anyway, get chatting!

^^^I agree. I think we should just keep it the way it is. Im not sure if it would work as good as the one we have now. DONT CHANGE IT.

Hm. Work firewalls were something we did not consider as issues.

Also, as Diana will be quick to point out, this is not putting an end to AIM chat. It's another option for people fed up with AIM and huge text sizes and any blathering idiot spouting off whenever they want.

Enjoy your spahgetti, you're very rude.

Finally ... my AIM programs can't handle the 3forums chat. IRC is the superior choice.

for u guys that want to test it out, i am in the irc chat right now so if need some help find me there or find me on aim.

like dave already said irc is not replacing the aim platform, the aim chat will still be going on nightly so don't worry--the main reason behind the irc chat starting is becuase irc cna handle the chat more easily then aim, aim is fine when there are a few people in the chat, but when the numbers start to go to gets more crazy--

dave and i wil be around online to give u guys a hand so we'll poke around with it later, like i said already i am in the irc chat now if u want o give it a try.
