Does FT still have an IRC channel?
« on: February 22, 2017, 08:14:45 pm »
I was curious if FT still had an IRC channel as I was thinking about frequenting some IRC channels after not being on any for a year, if not that's fine I was just wondering.

I think it still exists, but its basically a void. If people are interested in reviving it then that can be done, but we'll need to find a new mod(s) for it.

If you ever need mods for the IRC, Normally I have it open with the FT website tab.

I appreciate the interest, but you would definetly need to apply to become a board moderator first, since you'd be dealing with the same kind of info and held to the same standards. Actually, the reason we don't have an FT chatroom is because of how much time and maturity moderating it would take (since moderating real-time conversations is substantially harder than forum flame wars). But its within the realm of possibility.

So, I guess if others are interested in getting the IRC going again, please post?

It seems like the staff would need to take shifts, and even then, there would be times where no staff is on, unless there's a way for staff to "close" when none are present. It just seems like so much work to maintain.. I mean if it happens, I wouldn't be upset, but whew, I wouldn't want to start it back up if I was a part of staff.

I'm with Enso omg

Plus, even if there WAS a way to get a mod on there at all times, things can escalate sooooooo quickly, especially in a real time chat. I feel like it's more work than it's worth, and a lot of people seem to already exchange contact info and make their own private groups outside of them being FT specific.

The staff team is pretty small right now (considering some of them are rarely active due to stuff they have to deal with IRL since a lot of staff are adults) so I think running a chatroom would be a lot of stress. Especially during the school year and stuff.
Plus let's face it
A bunch of teens in a chat room
Something is bound to go wrong honestly and staff won't always be there to watch it

I have it open and the only one on is someone named ""~Lowie"". Everytime I open it they're there. Is it broken or something?

I can't seem to connect, worse case scenario my school blocked IRC from this computer, but idk, I'll try getting on because I like IRC.

IRC is pretty old school now though some still run
skype, discord, telegram and kik are popular things people use
But I would be interested if there are enough people on it

Lowie is a mod for our IRC, so I'm assuming he always has it open/is always shown as online  :fox-:P:
