Is their an x360a IRC channel? I use IRC a lot and i though it would be cool to see if you guys had one. If not, it would be cool if you guys could set one up, would be interesting to have random chat with some of the members on here.

IRC = Internet Relay Chat. You can download it from www.mirc.com (http://www.mirc.com). What server are you using? Dalnet?

IRC is internet relay chat, its a free to use service that allows users to create rooms (Or channels) for other people to chat in. its free to make these channels on most servers and the channel can be accessed using either a paid program/client such as MIRC or a free one like Visual IRC (the one i use)

Yeah, it would make for some quicker responses on asking for boosting and the like.

If the admins don't want to have anything to do with this, I could set up a dedicated IRC server from one of my servers. Either that, or we could just start a channel on efnet, or better yet, gamesurge.

x360a = Family site, modded to make sure it stays that way

IRC = Unmodded, or has to be manned 24/7 to protect the clean cut family image the site has.

IRC also = A great way for the site to get in some trouble

this is true, IRC is just an easy place to chat, and I like it better than MSN. I'm well acquainted with IRC because I spent many childhood days scripting for that gay shit.

also, DalNet is a very good server to use because they don't put up with spam and other shit like that.

IRC is actually very safe, if you use your own server, and set it up correctly. If it's bad language you're concerned about, it can be prevented. For something like this, I could understand the admins not wanting to join a public server, because you don't have control over what goes on. I also wouldn't run it on the same server as the website, and I'm sure the admins aren't going to get for another server. So unless someone would be willing to buy a server, configure it to the admins needs, they'll probably never go for this. I'm not saying they ever would anyways, but having it completely customizable and separate from the website wouldn't hurt.

okay ill give you guys the info
you can load up an irc client and type /server irc.efnet.net or /server irc.efnet.org then type /join #xbox360achievements.org

if you DONT have an irc client you can use a web based chat
http://chat.efnet.org
pick a name select other and type in #xbox360achievements.org

remember this is not official and has nothing to do with this forum


but if the admins of this site dont want us to do this I understand and we will shut it down
