If I could mass-email the forum users, i'd make e-fliers for it and everything, but it has been made very clear that mass-emailing is not okay to do :/

I'd have to say, if I got an email about this I would totally show up.

A lot of people would, but the forum TOS (as it was written for the old forum anyway, I haven't seen if that was copy+pasted over) specifically says that we will never mass email people.

We could just make a chatroom on quakenet or something ? We used to have our own server, but we used a public one in the start i think..

In any case, I'm no expert, and maybe there is a quick fix to the chat issues, we just need one of the mods to fix it. Has anyone tried sending a mail (In case they dont check here)

I admit I don't actually know who was managing the chat. But it's worth a try, do you know who we can talk with?

Hooman or Galactic I think.
BlackBox seems to have taken a permanent vacation ?

Alright, looks like there's not much of an alternative. So, who's going to send them mail? Do you know them better?

Can you try sending them a PM ? Unless you have their e-mails ?

I tried sending a PM, but not sure I actually managed to get one sent as the send button doesnt seem to load properly..

Galactic's account seems to allow sending him E-Mails. I just don't know if I should.

I've gathered up a lot of server management and development skills over the past few years. I can lend a hand and set up an IRC or XMPP based chat system on my server if the official one is permanently out of commission.

I've sent a mail to galactic a few days ago, I haven't recieved an answer yet. So we'll have to see. However, I'd really like the chat to be back, you just can't organize matches like this.

Let's just wait a week.

Sounds good. Shoot me a PM if it's needed.

[Edit]
I've got it up and running, and I've tested it with Spark. Seems to work flawlessly. For now I've got two rooms set up: General Chat, and Match Making. If nothing else, it'll be good as a backup server. :)

That'd be fun. I have a few things to do that morning, but I'll probably be free around 2:30-3pm EST.
