If it can wait a few more weeks, I'd be happy to help.  I have 1 more week of instruction and finals week after this week is over (yay for thanksgiving break!)

Another reason against it: those of us who only respond to the shoutbox conversations because it is 100% independant of time. IRC is HIGHLY dependant on time, therefore a conversation will die prematurely due to the time elapse.

this is the point of using the logs from the bot it makes the same thing as the shout box viewing the log of like the last 5 or 6 lines said.  you would see what was said last.  But making it IRC also mean if there are 2 or more of you guys on the forums at once then you could have the live chat.

logs is what kills it.  People are lazy by nature, and we don't like having to do more work to see the same thing.

To get the desired effect of the topic thats what would happen.

The whole point of this is to make it so the lazy people can stay lazy and be on irc at the same time and maybe they will enjoy the community a little more because they might get a live chat in here and there. It also might spark a interest in playing the game again.


offtopic moved hehe please continue
