I don't know if this has come up before (I'm sure it has), but has there been any thought into creating an IRC channel for this board? Does one currently exist for any of the tbird/cougar websites/message boards? I know from past boards that it usually works out quite well and in the long run, the communities built up seem to stick around, even after things move on (although in the case of cars, its unlikely that'll happen). Anyone have any input on this?

For the people who prefer not to use an irc client, java applets seem to work well and require little bandwidth. The only problem that is always run into is always having someone in the channel to moderate but I doubt it'd be an issue for a place like this.

I liked having the cheap lil' chat room on the old board.. but I really really really detest IRC.

there was a chatroom? heh

Nowdays chances are chatrooms are on irc, you just don't know it through the java applet. Was the old one server-based?

It's in the upper left corner once you're logged in. "Join Live Chat" or something along those lines.

Nope. Looks like it gets disabled if you don't pay the ransom on time.

I will be looking into adding features such as chat and an arcade, but right now it's deer season. Between that, work, and life I won't have much time until early December to play with that sort of thing.

I think the arcade is a waste of time and space, but whatever.

I think the internet is a waste of time and space, but it's fun.

Seriously, though. The arcade over at Cougarnuts was really successful, back when cougarnuts had active members. What might you suggest instead of the Arcade?

Nothing, I just saw it as a gimmick. It was fun, but I didn't think it was worth the effort. Of course if there is an arcade put in here i would use it, I'm just saying that its not a high interest thing to me.
