confused IRC Down? (slashnet.org)

Post by STACKER » Mon Jul 01, 2019 4:16 am

Down at the left sidebard in the links, there is IRC chat listed. But the IRC network that it connects to is down. Isn't it a good idea to just pop on a IRC server next to the hosting of this site?
Or did the IRC channel not get any traffic to begin with...?

The IRC didn't get enough traffic so by now my registered IRC nick is gone, and I can't register it while you're idle in it.


I could make a private IRC server but part of the idea is to leave SOMETHING hosted off-site so there's a way to communicate if the site ever goes down.


As far as the web applet, I have no idea why it's broken.

I would suggest a secret forum you can lord over the new users that is only for trusted users.

I don't know. Spite? It doesn't matter to be honest. We don't have enough members for people to care.

Yeah, once we get more members I could maybe do, like, a VIP section.

This place is it's own oldfag VIP section, but a 'user-only' page would be neat for that. Or like board where only X-day old accounts can see and post. Could keep the bots out.

The only thing that will keep bots out is closing reg or making it administrator approval, neither of which are worth doing. I can ban the 3-5 bots a week that roll through here.
