IRC/Chat
« on: February 06, 2013, 09:25:47 PM »
My bad if this is the wrong part of the site to post this in but I REALLYYY want #GU back. Is there any way we can make this happen? If I can do anything to make it so, I will.

Edit: Yeah so I made an IRC channel and I can sit my butt in it day and night if need be. I have next to no IRC experience, though, so I can definitely promote people who are more knowledgeable than me to ops. :P

IRC Server: servercentral.il.us.quakenet.org
Ports: 6667
Channel: #GU

If this doesn't work out, I'm open to other ideas! ^^ I just wanted to have SOME kind of chat up and running.

Edit 2: Yeah, like one person ever showed up in chat in two days and that's someone I recruited to the forum a couple days ago so I don't know if this'll work. :/ It's sad cause I thought it would be neat to talk to ya'll but I guess everyone's busy. We'll have to stick to the Steam group chat if we ever want to chat...

On steam, go to "join group chat" for our group.
It's as active as #gu :P

Haha good point. :P I just rarely log on Steam I guess, and when I do, I'm usually appearing invis. Just thought it might be nice to have a chat again where people wouldn't have to have a Steam account/be part of the group to join.

BUT it seems like I'm the only one interested in the chat anymore, so I dunno. :(

I'm guessing #gaminguniverse on Freenode is dead then, too...

EDIT: Now that I've poked around Steam, I see a big problem with using its chat- Steam users can't use group chats unless they buy a game. I don't tend to buy games through online services like Steam because I don't want to wait on the download (and I don't play very many new games, but usually play a lot of old ones on DOSBox), so this locks me out, and I doubt I'm the only one. (Plus, I find Steam irritating; half the time I start it the 'logging in' dialog turns white and stops responding... since I got this Win 7 machine almost nothing I run behaves like that.)

That seems....odd.  Steam has a lot of F2P games.  Maybe trying to "add" one of those to your account would allow you access to the chat.

Yeah, maybe if you "had" one of the games even if you didn't install it it might work? That sucks of Steam. I've never really had any issues with them, though, like the logging in one mentioned. It's never done that to me. :(

That's what I'm thinking.  If that doesn't work I've got a giftable copy of Virtua Fighter II I'm willing to part with.

I'm biased.  I'm logged into Steam whenever my computer is on (which is like...all the time)   :lo_o

I was fine with that but since Aezen was the only person that logged on in the 2 days I kept IRC open, I figured no one was interested in chatting. :P

[Also sorry, Aezen, I happened to be AFK and you were gone when I got back. :B]

Heh, that's ok.  I popped back on IRC yesterday or the day before and no one was there.  I mostly chat 1-on-1 via Steam or Skype

I usually stick to Skype/Steam chats for the most part nowadays, Skype being the prevalent one. I just like how group chats on Skype (for small groups of less than 15 people) work.

Nope... I tried it and I'm still getting the message. I attached a screenshot; the "View Steam support for more information" link takes me here.

When given the chance, accept my Friend request, and I will gift you a copy of DOTA 2, this should open up your account so it's no longer a F2P account, and give you access to other things.

On the subject of steam names, my account is kulthran. If that doesn't work, then try "aegisrunestone".
