ZDoom IRC Channel

Postby Shadelight » Mon Jul 06, 2009 6:33 pm

What would you guys think of a #zdoom on EsperNet that is actually focused(or not focused) on ZDoom discussion? I tried this once before, but I could never get it populated or people didn't care as much.

Link: irc://irc.esper.net/zdoom

mIRC Download for an easy to use client: http://www.mirc.com
X-Chat Download for an alternative to mIRC: http://www.silverex.org
EsperNet IRC client: http://webchat.esper.net

Firefox users can use Chatzilla, which is even easier: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/16

This is for new users to IRC or people who have forgotten. To register your nick, you would use this: /ns register password email
To identify, or to login with your nick, you would use this: /identify password

For other channels: #ZDRant

Edited the IRC Channel link to not have the # as that doesn't work.

Indeed. Well, I'll sure be around a lot, even if I won't be a rather large contributor of discussion (I tend to shy out of large group conversation. <_>)

Is IRC still popular? I thought that it was dying out.

Depends. A lot of people use it but hang around in different channels.

I will hang around in this one when I can, see if it gets popular.

#notzdoomrelated? What happened to that?

Personally, I think a phpBB ajax chatroom addon to this very board could be a better idea.

IRC was one of the few things that amazed me about the internet when I first had access to it in 1996... it was pretty addicting (and me being a kid on top of that)... along with stuff like ICQ, instant messaging, stuff like that...

As I grew older I find that I've lost interest in these internet hangout places... however, I guess IRC for ZDoom is good if only for real-time support. Like leileilol, I'd rather see a built-in chat client bult into these forums.

I went once to #zdoom. It was moderated by people commonly running the doomworld forum. It was a bit after the KDiZD release, so naturally they were (slowly) talking about that.

But the chat was too random, people didn't seem to be at the computers, so I realized I prefer the forums for talking about Doom.

Sounds like you're talking about the #zdoom on oftc, the one we're talking about here is on Espernet.
