FT IRC Abandon?
« on: January 15, 2016, 12:26:45 am »
So I recently checked out the FT IRC channel and so far in the past 28 hours I've been the only one there besides the owner who is afk... Does anyone even use it anymore?

I went on it a couple of weeks ago but since no one was on it I went off. I been on some other IRC channels but most of them were fairly quiet but at least they had registered users. But IRC generally aren't used so much I suppose.

The IRC channel has been mostly inactive for a while now. I've never been on it myself so can't say much about the activity at specific times but generally it's pretty inactive unfortunately

None that are official or associated with the site. Sorry!

I would love to get an easier one (Like teamspeak or curse) up and running. I can do it all for you. Only problem as you had said in an earlier post is that a mod/admin needs to be on it and there are none available right now.  :fox-:P:

The problem I could see with TS and Curse is that they are primarily voice clients and so that becomes even harder to have a constant moderation on.

I recently got Discord and I gotta say I'm impressed by it. I'm still new to it of course but so far it seems, well, perfect.

Discord raises a possibility, whilst still giving tools for moderation.

Once again though, the problem arises that there would need to be a moderation team for it. A moderation team who is able to sort through hundreds of messages very quickly, while they were gone for 8 hours to sleep and/or work or go to school. It's possible in theory, but would take time to implement, if we did at all.
