Well before you start on at me about there already being threads on this dont, I feel this deserves its own.

Those of us who go on IRC will know that as of late its become rather boring and only a select few Australian memebers usually talk for any length of time, some I wish would shut up, hi Jet. :D

Anyways IRC used to be the hub of KKW activity and I want to try and restore that sense of community in an attempt to improve the board as well (that has gone down hill too but thats another story).

So I was thinking maybe organising an 'IRC Day' or something where we get a many people on as possible, break the record attendance and get to know each other better, its my thinking that interaction on IRC will improve the level of discussion on the board.

Nothing is set in stone yet and I just wanted to put this out there to all you memebers to see what you think and if you had any better ideas or constructive criticism.

Think this could be a good idea...IRC certainly DOES need a kick up the arse...I tell you what...I'll even promise NOT to turn up on "IRC day" so as not to spoil it ;)

Hey look, apoggy remembers me!!! HEY!!! And yeah, if you did set up such a day, I'd probably won't be there, unless its late night my time since i've got school, so no more hanging around irc with you people :P Many of you won't miss me :) Just get everyone to turn on irc and idle there... I mean its basically what people besides the Australians do.

I think an IRC day would be good. If more people we on IRC it would definitely help improve the quaility of discussions here on the boards.

IRC day is a great idea. We need to get IRC back up to what it was in it's heyday.

mirc day is a good idea, but not many people now how to work whit mirc why don’t ask Barrington to include a realtime chat box in the forum,
it would be allot easier, and there would be allot more people on it,
here a link for the administrators:

I can be on there in the evenings, although I doubt anyone cares.

*Mags the IRC Pimp comes rushing through the door*

My apologies dear members. Due to circumstances beyond my control (and evidentally my credit card) my home internet service has been disconnected until those fucks at SBC figure out how to reconnect it (it doesn't sound too difficult to me, but these guys could make blinking seem strenuous). You would also think that because I work in a huge office building where I have my own computer I would have internet access there, but alas, this company's IT department is run by a despotic nerd who litters his office with the corpses of computers that have proven themselves useless to them. Said supernerd monitors EVERY single webpage employees visit and often has popups on the screen to tell employees that he knows they're looking at a website they shouldn't be looking at (read, anything but work related sites).

Anyway, as a result of this longwinded series of events, I have been MIA for about the last three weeks. My pimping duties have been neglected and for that I sincerely apologise.

Therefore, to IRC with you....

go, I say, go.
