Yes, we should and I'd prefer it to be on Rizon though I don't mind what server it is really.

What do you think?

wait, the reason that GB has a IRC channel is that a lot of people were making pointless threat?

I spend most of my time hanging around Japanator's irc, so I dunno if I'd really hang out there.

I know, but I'm not one for multiple chats.

Jewel, IRC is Internet Relay Chat. Think of it as sort of a proto-AIM. You log onto a server, which has a bunch of different chat rooms you can join (almost always created and maintained by users on the server). The chat rooms fill up with people, and you can private message them and whatnot.

It's mostly died off in favor of various IM services, but it's still pretty significant in certain geekdoms-- in anime it's major because it's still where a lot of fansubbers and scanlators do initial distribution...even most of the ones that put their stuff up as torrents still use IRC as well.

If people want it, I'd make an IRC channel. But what server? I know the Jtor folks will be biased in favor of IRCHighway, since that's where the jtor chatroom already is...I'm thinking Rizon might be a better choice since that's where more of the anime chats tend to be.

Thoughts?

ugh..... a site where i go to still has that system it takes forever to load a simple link page and on top of that the idiots also put on lots of pop-up adds ><

Rizon is a good one. I'd join the channel if there was one since I have no life and can afford to be in multiple channels at a time.

If you are going to do one Gia I'd go with Rizon too, you're right that it has a much larger anime focus.

That's because the site or Java running on your computer is slow. Don't use site irc links use irc in an irc client like mIRC on Windows.
@Gia: I'm all in favor of you making the IRC channel on Rizon and everyone else who has a preference has posted that here. :-P

i have not used irc in years. spent a lot of time on it years ago in some 80's cartoons channels. i do agree that a channel for anime vice would be good to have but the priority at the moment should be trying to get more traffic on the forums.

An IRC channel is very easy to make and doesn't take much effort to mod(I've made one and maintained one myself before).

Interesting.  I haven't used IRC a lot for a while, myself.  Mostly, I floated through the various warez channels.  If AnimeVice got an IRC channel, I think I'd pop in.

I'm biased towards irchighway. Even if Rizon has more of the anime fandom, one look at the majority of your active forum users should tell you that isn't much of a concern.

yeah i know that i more meant that if there was an irc channel then the guys that are active on the forum might spend all their time in irc chatting
as opposed to posting on the forums, and the forums would be quiter than they are now. an irc channel would be good just as long as people still try to use both
