    No thanks. I think we'd rather spend our time chatting in the channel, not fighting for control over it.

    Start one and tell us which net, I will be there.

    I should clarify. I think the idea of a chat room for WHT has potential, just not on EFnet due to the high rate of takeovers, attacks, floods, and other problems that plague that network.

    Correct, Efnet... or any other network that doesn't operate with a chanserv/nickserv type setup would be bad, and even the ones that have this such as Dalnet can be bad. I might not be a bad idea for a smaller server or a Private server. I might be able to get a box that could get a irc server setup on it.

    Regards,

    Mike

    Heck, I have a private IRC server already set up that we could use. If nobody proposes a better method, I'll be happy to send the details out.

    Okay... in that case, connect to:

    irc.qwk.net

    ...and join channel #wht. I'll be gone this afternoon, but I'll hold the channel open. If it looks like it will get any use, I'll set it up with a bot and some channel services.

    Enjoy...

    an alternative, with browser support

    I've got a conference room server. It's not really open to the public yet because things are still being sorted out. The advantage is that, being conference room, it comes with a web based chat client. A disadvantage is that we're changing things and the server may need to be restarted now and then

    If you guys would prefer this instead, I'll drop the details here. Otherwise, I suppose Travis could put up a java client somewhere.

    P.S. no, it's not running on a windows machine on my home computer. It's running on solaris in a company's DMZ.

    Just to clarify this, conference room has irc support and integrated java chat interface. This means you can use your ordinary irc client if you prefer, or you can use the web chat if you don't need the hassle of downloading, installing and figuring out how to use irc clients.

    (some would say that justifies the multi thousand-dollar cost of conference-room. i don't really think so, but who am i to argue if a big company wants to spend the money)

    Travis' server

    Travis,
    I logged onto irc.qwk.net but it shows my IP address. I dont prefer this. Something that proxies on the server end? as in the dalnet, talkcity, etc? I think conference room also hides the IP address.

    No not talkcity - that's too proprietary. Just an example for my point.

    Hm... I've never thought of that as a very big deal in a non-public type of chat like this. I ran IRC server for a car club for a couple years (usually 30-40 people in the room at a time) and never had any problems.

    What is is that you're concerned about?

    alright, give this a go...

    EITHER:
    point your irc client to lists.mtv.co.uk port 9010
    OR:
    point your web browser to http://lists.mtv.co.uk:9012/

    Web users are automatically put in #lobby; irc users can just /join #lobby

    To allay TheWingThing's concerns, the first element of your ip is masked unless you do /umode -x.
