    I was wondering if any active xenforo users would be inclined to gather and mingle at an unofficial Xenforo IRC channel?

    I think this will proved to be useful as it will:
    - move lots of short conversations posts to the chat channel instead
    - allow ppl to get off-and-on topic
    - allow ppl to engage in live conversation about the lawsuit and everything else
    - help ppl be direct with one another
    - create a positive and civil atmosphere.

    Xenforo unofficial chat channel
    Website: http://webchat.freenode.net/
    Nickname: yourname (it is free and there is no signup required)
    Channel: #xenforo (yes include the # symbol)

    Just an FYI, If you're using a client you'll want to connect to irc.freenode.net.

    Can't say I would favor or use this. I'm more into keeping conversations on a community and not into a chat room.

    But I wish you luck

    I see a bunch of freeloaders trying to get support through it, on top of that response time on the forums for support is ridiculously fast :).

    Not that it's a bad idea, just might get used in the wrong way

    I idle in many rooms and will idle in a XenForo one if it is on the node.

    I appreciate the idea although I do guess forking xf discussions over multiple platforms would not help xenforo.

    irc seems soo 2000
    I wouldn't use it, I barely use the support forums ;)

    For developers, IRC is vital. You will be surprised how many brilliant minds are chatting daily on it.

    "IRC is so 2000"

    Oh yea I agree Brandon Sheley but Ive seen it having a big comeback to Video Game sites and other media sites. Heh... I remember back in 2001, before AOL messaging, us geeks used IRC. Fast forward to now and you will see lots of big communities, like Minecraft, utilizing a IRC channel now.

    The channel needs to be ##xenforo. Freenode policy is one # for official and 2 for unofficial.

    I definitely think we should forget this IRC idea and just meet in the middle of the ocean. We can throw USB sticks containing the latest resources between the ships. It's basically the same thing.

    I idle on many IRC channels! Leave it alone!

    It has also created business opportunities for me (which none have worked out D: ) as well from the people I meet.

    We used to use IRC a hell of a lot.

    Being a gaming community, it was sensible thing to have an IRC channel on irc.quakenet.org.

    I think we still have, actually... probably #halflife2

    However, being heavily focused around Half-Life 2 in the early days and now generally any Valve Software game/product our chat presence is all on Steam.

    Still holds a special place in my heart.
