Yeah, well, if I hosted a stand alone chatroom, would you run it?  Would people prefer that over what we have?

As long as people with irssi and every other client under the sun can get in.

I don't know any of that shit.  I am willing to host a site, and provide decent software.  Someone that knows how this shit works will have to do all that shit.

I could do it easily enough if you funded it.

Of course, given our history on irc you might not appreciate my offer.

Yep.  We need a new chatroom.  One that, you know, WORKS.

IAWTC.

it doesn't even need to be IRC, something web-based might be even more suitable. the point is being able to interact in real time, right?

Yeah, and I'd like voice and maybe videochat options.

Preferably, videochat would look like the briefings from starcraft, but I'm not picky.

Voice and video are gonna be hard to do in a web interface though.

Do you mean like Team Speak or Ventrilo for voice?  Also years ago I used to play with yahoo chat, and they had both video and audio in their IM if I recall, but not sure about the rooms.  Bandwidth for some of those might be an issue for some, but as long as there is separate text chat I suppose that will give those people an option.

Are we trying to do away with irc completely and move on to something else?

Most new software has voice and video.

Hell, even the fuckers at GLP have it.

Usually, voice/text is kept separate from video, and you can disable voice.

Chat? Voice, video?

Wait, are you people seriously asking for Stickam?  :lulz: :lulz: I kid. But seriously, if you got something like that up and running that'd be awesome.
