View Full Version : Official X360a IRC?

So, I did a cursory search around the site and, somewhat to my surprise, couldn't find any form of IRC channel or server for this site. As I'm sure most of you know, IRC or Internet Relay Chat is a webchat system that uses various programs (examples: IceChat or mIRC) to allow people to connect to servers and channels from which they then chat with other people of like interest. I think it would be great idea for us to have a server of our own. (or at the very least, a channel on one of the more populus servers) It could kind of be a live help deal, where people who are having trouble getting certain achievements can get pointers from folks who've already gotten them. It also works out as a good place for folks to just chat with others who have the achievement fever.

Then again, it's entirely possible this is already set up and I ust couldn't find it...

Here are two threads that explain why an IRC channel will never be on this site.

Basically it would be too hard to moderate and moderators do not have the time to do it. And the fact that this is a family site also has something to do with it.

As bishop said, we do not have the time to be able to do this. And if we did I doubt we will get that many people use it anyways!
