    as far as i know there is no chat.
    i dont think it would be a good idea, maybe if we did just that, problem i see is people jumping in asking questions when most of whats said could be on the boards ... im afraid it would defeat the purpose, plus we dont have to be on at the same time.

    it could be intresting, but again it could be bad.

    I also think it's not a good idea...
    400 people all trying to get help for their own topics, for their own scripting language...

    Not fun...

    the only way an IRC channel for these forums would work, i think, would be if we did what i have previously suggested, and used it as a replacement for the Pit. otherwise, for the reasons that cg9com and Morgoth listed, it would be a Bad Thing.

    I suggested it as not so much off a hardcore HTML/coding/scripting/ resource, but more light hearted talk and chat, with the occasional venture into development matters.

    Also a good point...

    Maybe it might be a good idea if it were only that...
    And possible a java applet for irc linked off the front page so you don't accually need an IRC client.

    If we get something like that, I'm sending an application for Mod of that.

    hehe...

    But there would deffinately need an op to tell people to post their questions on the forums and such...

    thats the problem, i think because you could get a response instantly, to many people would ask questions instead of just using the boards, im up for trying it, but it may fail

    I would give it a shot too... We should try it atleast, but of course, it might just be a complete failure...

    LOL, I'll just do idle there (I always have IRC open...)

    If we were to have the IRC room anywhere, I don't think it would be ICQ.com... We could use one of those large dedicated to IRC types of servers...

    My suggest would be http://inteliinternet.com/ and get a channel with them...

    prehistoric!

    If you ask me we should forget about ever having the pit and move on, I mean this has got to be like the 10000th thread this year regarding it lol. . .


    Just the way I see it!

    Either way, it's one of those projects you need to test to see the results...

    & shouldn't that tell us something ?
    resistance is...

    MVC is the current buzz in web application architectures. It comes from event-driven desktop application design and doesn't fit into web application design very well. But luckily nobody really knows what MVC means, so we can call our presentation layer separation mechanism MVC and move on. (Rasmus Lerdorf)

    Tells us 2 things!

    1) The pit is something that everyone (mostly) wants.
    2) The pit is something that everyone won't get any time soon.. lol

    If that's true, then an IRC forum would almost be better.

    It wouldn't be hosted by WA, and he wouldn't have to worry about it consumming bandwidth!

    Really in all reality, it's up to WA, and now that I think about it, I am almost certian it wont work. This just isn't one of those communities!
