This still works though:
CentralChat got moved to VoltIRC. Either use the webclient on their website or direct your IRC application to 'irc.voltirc.com'. The channel is still '#gamingsteve'.
And it's nice to see more people coming to visit our little channel, it can be pretty quiet.

Come hang out with us!

VoltIRC seems to be blocking any text entry that is in all caps.

It means I can't come into the room and say "HELLO!", because it gets pruned and I get warned. I think we need a new chat again. :U

There's already so few people that stop by the IRC channel, at least during the European day. I hope switching again doesn't reduce that number even further.
But you're right, blocking all-caps messages is ridiculous. I'm open to suggestions for a different server.

I think the IRC crowd is more or less static and will go wherever we move it to. All we gotta do is change the address. :D

As for servers to try, I dunno. When I found CentralChat all I did was pick one at random. u:

I would totally use IRC more if I didn't keep forgetting about it.

In any case, couldn't we use freenode?
Kiwi IRC already has them set as their default server:

https://kiwiirc.com/client

All anyone has to do is type their screenname, type #gamingsteve for channel, and we're set.
Unless I am wrong about this?
What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.

*Bump*

No but seriously, does my suggestion work, or not? I legit don't want to lose our IRC! It is important for things.

If so, can we edit it into the head post of the 'chat room' topic so everyone knows where people are at?

I'll just go wherever so whatever you all set up is fine.

That's enough of an endorsement for me! Here's what one of the mods can edit into the chat room thread, if they are willing:

All anyone has to do is type their screenname, type #gamingsteve for channel, and we're set.

No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

Then not switching it is!

Honestly I'm just trying to be helpful for whatever people decide they want, ultimately. If not being able to do all caps is a big issue, then switching is an option. Otherwise, we can keep it the same.

Edit: Apparently VoltIRC is fine and all is fixed! Never mind then! :D
