#construct on EsperNet

Chat about anything not covered in these forums, but keep it civil!

Post » Sun Jul 12, 2009 10:20 pm

For those who prefer IRC to AJAX chat and such, I set up an IRC channel. Click here to chat using Mibbit, or use your IRC client to connect to irc.esper.net and join #construct .

This isn't intended to replace the AJAX chat, just as a backup and if you prefer chatting on a separate, dedicated client ;) .

If any of the devs has a problem with it then I won't press it, feel free to delete it. Hopefully it can co-exist with the ajax chat okay. Hope to see some of you there!

I'm not a dev, but isn't this going to fragment chat?
I mean, if anyone is using it, it must be, because I'm not, and neither are the people I'm usually chatting with, so that means we're splitting up chatters

not to rain on anyone's parade
just saying

this is like sega releasing the 32x

nevermind, after tonight when chat totally froze to insane levels
we should go ahead and fragment
it's convenient to just click chat, and most new users will
but if we could add a link to java based irc chat, and/or regular irc chat
to this #construct
it's so nice to just type something and have it appear there within the same century

Good as backup when Ajax is having huge lags.

Well I'm in there but nobody's talking :/

And who's YHT? I don't like not being able to ban people I don't know!!! I've been spoiled by power.

Actually I'd prefer to use IRC over the current chat, which is slow, high latency, bandwidth gobbling and unstable :P

Heh, remember, we had an irc channel for few days, before chat was introduced :P (I like IRC more too, since almost all my friends use it for daily communication :D)

If you're a moderator or administrator here and would like op in #construct, I'll be happy to provide it. But to prevent impersonation, please register an EsperNet nick and PM me here to confirm that that nick is indeed yours.
