Chat room seems to have been removed

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

Why was the chat room removed? 

A few people hang out in there, and while there's the occasional coding question, we mostly use it to socialize, which doesn't subtract much value at all from the forum but adds some to our lives. 

Is it a permanent deletion?

chat [*][*][*]

@rich it would be awesome to have the chat rewritten, because it was randomly kicking ppl from time to time, also there were some troubles with users list in chat, but we miss that place, even with those bugs :(

It was a feature provided by IPB (the forum software we use). The upgrade to the latest IPB release yesterday disabled the Chat room. I was going to bring it back today, however, all hell broke lose with the DDoS attack, and now we're having to move to another host and it doesn't include Chat support I'm sorry to say. I will ask them if they offer it as an add-on, but I suspect not.

Well, your post answers both questions very well: 

Thank you, rich. Sorry for what you're going through and strength to you. 

AFAICR I'm not one of those who ever got in a fight with TV, but I'm certainly neither going to miss him. 

May I suggest to register and include a reference to an official IRC channel, maybe on freenode, in the future when things settle down and you have some spare time? Maybe even a link to an external web client such as http://kiwiirc.com, so it won't disturb the traffic here nor pose a new risk. The downside would be identity theft or mismatch from the forum, but oh well, you can't have everything. 

Thank you if so, and again best luck!

Well, surprise, surprise! As it is, there happens to already exist such channel. I found out while trying kiwi IRC url parameters, and here's the link:

https://kiwiirc.com/client/irc.freenode.net/html5gamedevs

I don't know if this is official, though.

 

Edit: it's claimed to be official, but a confimation would help. I guess after all this will be the way...

I just want to throw in Discord as it allows to create a server for free and fits most needs. Personally i use it quite alot as text chat and also as alternativ solution to Skype/TS3. It works well and im pretty happy so far. The down thing is that you cant host your server yourself which makes it third party dependent, but in return you dont have to pay for and can customize your servers to fit your needs.

Another plus is that it runs on Win, Mac, Linux, Android, IOs and got a Browser solution too.

Yeah, ScummVM is great and so is DOTT. I love other adventures too, but that one with the time thing and multiple character impersonation was really something! And that little cone screenshot when he goes he'll take over the world, both terrifying and funny LOL Yeah I wish I could play it soon too, I had so many others I want to play too but I just have no time, tsk
