IRC Channel Schedule

The official IRC chat time is at 8:00 PM ET (http://www.timezonecheck.com/) on Sundays.

However the channel is open 24 hours a day, every day and we're going to try to get people to spend time in there whenever they can so hopefully they'll be people there to talk to.
-------------------------------

#Mac-Forums Rules


All Mac-Forums Community Guidelines (http://www.mac-forums.com/forums/news-community-announcements/announcement-community-guidelines.html) also apply in the channel. The exception will be around the profanity rule. We will allow mild profanity in the channel, but keep it under control. ;)

Op Status: Operator status is reserved for the mods of Mac-Forums.com alone.

Voice: Voice status is given to those members who are active in the channel and are not only positive influences in the channel but also on Mac-Forums.com. DO NOT ask for voice, you will be granted voice once the mods see fit. In order to be added to the voice list you MUST register (http://freenode.net/faq.shtml#userregistration) your nick with Freenode. Once you're added to the list, chanserv will auto-voice you when you enter the channel after logging in.

Registering is not mandatory, but it is a requirement to be on the auto-voice list with chanserv. There is no way around it, it's how Freenode's service works. However you can continue to participate without registering your nick without any problem, although we highly recommend you register (http://freenode.net/faq.shtml#userregistration).

Impersonating the nick of an op or another user or creating any variant thereof is grounds for immediate banning on the channel and the forums.

Helping another user with a problem is great, but if it becomes very indepth or you notice you're monopolizing the channel with your conversation, please take the help to a private discussion just to be polite to everyone else in the chat room.

The ops in the channel reserve the right to modify any of the rules as they deem appropriate at any time.


By joining the channel you are agreeing to abide by these rules.

For those of you thinking of purchasing Linkinus, I'd encourage you to compare the price difference between the App Store and the store on the Conceited (developer) website. For me at least, the MAS version is $10 and the Conceited store version works out to $27.84 (which would probably be higher given that there would be a currency exchange).

If the Admins in IRC want to update the Stats link, it's McYukon's IRC Stats (http://mcyukon.oc.tc/stats/) or #Mac-Forums @ Freenode stats by McYukon (http://mcyukon.oc.tc/stats/macforums.html) now.
The old stat gen stopped working because the server owner upgraded to a 64 bit Ubuntu and I couldn't get it to recompile, so I changed over to pisg - Perl IRC Statistics Generator :: Home (http://pisg.sourceforge.net/) (Which is awesomeness compared to the other gen I was using, it's sooo much easier to setup and maintain)

Done. I'll send my bill. :P

My Mac never sleeps though! You come at bad times. People are either sleeping or busy. Sunday at 5 PM PST is the official time. Any other time you might or might not get a reply. Nothing personal. 5 PM PST is 8 PM my time, so I guess I have been coming pretty late. Don't worry, I didn't take it personally.

Van, Anyone, IRC tonight? I am starting dinner early so I can be at the computer by 5PM PST.

We would only accept your apology if the answer was yes. ;)

We would only accept your apology if the answer was yes. ;)Then my answer is a resounding yes (which wouldn't be a lie either).

I'll be there this Sunday though - someone has to control the hooligans that dwell in the channel. :P

Does nobody use irc much now? Or is it just quiet? Or did I mess up joining the channel? :-)

I used to keep Colloquy open 24 a day and keep an ear out when I was around. People stopped wanting to chat, even on Sunday nights, so when I got really sick this last time I gave up. Will try and check it more often.

Slydude

Is anybody else having trouble getting into the channel using the current version of Colloquy. Fir several days now when I choose the Mac-forums channel from the favorite list no window opens.

I am not sure if this started before or after the last Colloquy upgrade.

Same here, I've logged in at various times and there wasn't anyone there, so I just stopped as well..

dtravis7
04-24-2013, 03:17 PM
When did the upgrade come out? Have not checked in a while.

Edit, no I have the latest and it goes right in.

macuser1232

Colloquy is terrible in my opinion. It has way too many freezes. I would highly recommend Textual. I have tried many different IRC clients for the Mac and this is by far the best, and I continue to use it today.

dtravis7
08-04-2013, 10:05 PM
I have never in 8-9 years ever had a crash with Colloquy. I used to use it 24 hours a day here on the Mac Forums IRC when that was going strong and it never once crashed. IMac G5, Then Intel Mini, 2008 iMac Intel, Macbook and many other Macs and 10.3-10.8 OSX. Unless some more recent update has ruined it, not one issue.

Slydude
08-04-2013, 10:36 PM
I was using it until recently. The last few updates have borked something up for me so that it does not open the connection window as it should. I had been using Newspeak since it seems to give me a way to know about chat activity if the window is cooed/hidden.

Just tried Colloquy in the chatroom already and it seems to be working OK now.

Ok, that's over with.

So, is the channel dead? Cant even find it anymore. Not in the channel list.

Craig, it's still there. When I had to move I had not checked it over here but just installed Colloquy. Server is irc.freenode.net. You then join #mac-forums.


Right now I am there as well as Mac Yukon.

Found it! That's what happens when you get old. Never used IRC and I miss Palace for chatting.
Going to try hanging out on some channels maybe.
