We are now trying out Discord for the venue of the IDMF Chatroom. It takes only a second to set up your name with an email address, and you also will setup a password. Thomas has set this up for us, and we will create Op's to help manage the channel as we try it out. There's lot of cool features, including streaming audio, fast linking to files, uploads, Youtube and Soundcloud links, etc. Come check it out!
The place isn't all that dead as you make it to be, but most people join the channel and leave within minutes again, which is definitely not how to make anything happen in irc. Drop a line there and then idle, that is the way irc is used. Unless you got a channel with eleventeen thousand people.
half the issue of the IRC for me was/is it's far too much of a clique in there and tbh it's full (oh the irony of that word) of members that aren't on here anymore and haven't been in a long time either. and fuck all happens in there. i'm not gonna log in say "hi" and then wait 12 hours just to get a "hi" back. that's arse.
I went in there once and it had like 3 people and that was it, who weren't talking. Thom was on yesterday and was talking to a couple of people but then right as I get on he was leaving. There are a few ppl that stopped going on that were often there like Thom is one example. Garrr!!!!
