Default sc chatroom?

I think it would be a cool idea if SC had a chatroom so all of us could talk to each other instantly about sports and stuff. It could be on icq or mirc or something. Has SC tried it before? What do you guys think?

Very, very few site chat rooms are "populous." We've had chat sessions in the past, but time was more available then. I wouldn't be opposed to it now, however. You guys can setup a chat time if you want to talk in realtime, it's fine with me. For what it's worth, that chatroom is totally IRC-based with all the standard IRC commands, channels, etc.

Default Chat room

To anyone of the moderators here...

Does anyone go in the chat room here ? I've been in there a few times, and no one has ever come in. Are people aware of it? Maybe you guys could do something to let everyone know about it. Maybe people know, and don't care. Well, whatever the case, let me know what you guys think cause I think it would be interesting to have an active chat room on this site.

Nothing is stopping you all from setting up a chat time and everyone meeting in there. Obviously, unless you are an IRC chat channel, it's unlikely you'll have constant users in there.

Have we made an attempt to use it? Sure have, but before most of you were here. We had scheduled/announced chats even with special guests and while they were somewhat successful, I just don't have the time for them anymore. Feel free to use the chatroom, though.

Nick, you say you guys tried the chat room, and it didn't work ? How long ago was that ? Well, if anyone else is interested, I'd like to use the chat room. We could set up times and topics or maybe everyone could just go in when they come in. It didn't take me long to get in, and my computer is so slow you would think a mouse was in there running it. Well, I'm interested, and would like to chat, I'm going to be stuck at my computer for the next few months, so I might as well try it. If your interested, go ahead and reply in this post or just pop in and I might be there. I'm usually in here weekdays from like 2-7 and sometimes after 10 pm.

There's no harm in starting a thread in The Lounge or another board and say "join me now if you want to chat." Or you could start a thread and figure out the best time for everyone. This is certainly a busy time of the year for me with midterms.

That's a good idea Mark, starting a thread. I think another good idea is just going in the chat room and minimizing it. That's what I have been doing. It takes no time, and you can check and see if someone comes in while you are on these boards or even if you are somewhere else on the net. Unfortunatly, no one has come in while I have been on, but I will still be in there if my name is on the boards to anyone who cares.
