We have a discord, but no one likes talking in it.

Compare Discord to IRC.
It's like Parliament vs a Freemason chapter house, sure the seats at Parliament are better but we're more comfortable discussing important matters of world domination in our own little men-only space.

Chambordini suggested it, so we just requested and got the quakenet bot D that logs various chat statistics. This will be interesting to watch over the next few days.

It tracks who interacts with who, how much people ask questions. Even tracks how much people swear and use smilies! It also gives me random quotes from people.

I'll post some funny statistics once they have started accumulating a bit.

Since chambordini is on top of who has spoken most, he gets the honour of being the first one for a stat dump!

No idea what to make of this, but here's the "social graph".

The following setup tutorial has been added to the first post:
Deathgrowl wrote:
TUTORIAL FOR SETTING UP AN IRC CLIENT (IN THIS CASE, ICECHAT 9)


1. Download IceChat 9 from the following link:
http://www.icechat.net/site/downloads/d ... category=3

2. Install it.

3. Start it up.

4. Click the add button under the server list.

Image

5. Type in the necessary information. Closest server and its URL can be found here: https://www.quakenet.org/servers

Image

Here is an example of how it looks to me:

Image

Display name can be added to give the server a more recognisable name.

6. Go to the autojoin tab, and add the channel by typing in #bgtscc in the input field, then click the add button.

Image

Make sure to also Enable Autojoin.

Autojoin delay is optional, but recommended if you also will authenticate when logging in. More on that in next step.

7. OPTIONAL. Go to the Autoperform tab. If you have authenticated, as stated above, you will have a password in your stated email inbox. You can add this to automatic login every time you join the server by putting it in autoperform. Like this:

Image

The /mode [nick] +x is again optional, but this hides your hostname, setting it to [your login name].users.quakenet.org. This is recommended. And this is the reason you'd want to delay autojoin by 5 seconds, in order to hide the host before joining the channel.

Authenticating is done like this (quoting from above)
Hidden: show
Authing; when you join the channel, please type /msg Q hello (email) (email) to let Q know who you are and to register your nickname with the QuakeNet server. You'll get a confirmation email and a login you will use every time you connect to QuakeNet. Just type the authorization message you get as an email every time you log in or..
8. Click save.

9. Join your newly added server by either doubleclicking on it or selecting it and clicking the connect button under the server list.
If there are questions or something that needs to be clarified, let me know.

I miss IRC. It was a cozy thing.
"The desire to build a house is the tired wish of a man content with a single anchorage. The desire to build a boat is the desire of youth, unwilling yet to accept the idea of a final resting place."
"The wind and the waves are always on the side of the ablest navigator."
