    yes Trillian still allows you to connect to IRC. I have done but prefer mIRC.

    But I do get what Abu is trying to say. I know AO needs more activity but maybe instead of an one day of relaxed rules so to speak, we just need more things for members to do that isn't the same as what we have already done.

    IRC sounds good, but at the same time I question the staff's ability to be there in the channel 24/7 to prevent anything bad that might happen there. I mean are you guys going to constantly shut off and turn the chat room (if that is even possible)?? IRC allows constant name change with a simple /nick "insert name", so I actually think you are asking for more work by pushing IRC Tsurara.

    That's not nessecarily true, you know.
    Thinking Closer into a person's closer life, thery could have recreational sports or something along those lines. For Example, I usually (But not always) Have a Hockey game on Saturdays.

    But as for days open, I'd still have to agree. Saturday or Sunday would suffice more than likely.

    And I do find this idea quite well done overall.

    Well thats why it is handy that I am on IRC most of the day, GMT time. Plus there are bots you can use that will act as moderators while a member of staff is offline I think. Plus not every member will be on IRC 24/7 so I doubt it will be much of a problem.

    Re: Idea for Increased Forum Activity

    O.o is this like turning into a federal case or something? i just wanted people to have a sense of togetherness on AO... chat room, thread, whatever... i just want this place to have the same comrodery they had when then Chat thread was here...


    if it's not going to work or if it's too hard that's fine, i just think we're running out of options and there's really not much else we can do... we already have lots of competitions and insentives for posting and creative stuff, but it's not drawing enough attention...


    ^_^ but, whatever...

    Two history lessons people:

    * Chatrooms never worked in the past and they wont work in the present or future of AO, palin and simple. Back in the days of the true prime-time of AO (2002-2003) with several more active members, we set-up a few chatrooms and all of them failed. Those places where active for a few days and then they died, again that was when we have three to four times the activity we have today, and they just failed....

    * The spam-thread, well if it was that great, why was removed??? Again it was tried before and for some reason it failed, and caused major troubles and member desertion. There is no way to have real control of those threads unless you want some unpaid staff members to leave their own personal life to moderate the e-drama that will arise from it.

    Conclusion, been there, done that and didnt work...

    It failed because it took all of the activity away from the rest of the board not because it wasn't popular, if anything it was TOO popular.

    Thus the point of this thread was to say hey I know it would be bad to have the thread there 24/7 given what it does to the rest of the board instead just have it once a week, pick a "slow day" for AO and have it then. It will boost site activity and give members a way to have some fun again if nothing else then just once a week. All the while not hurting the board as the rest of the site still functions normally for the rest of the week.
