    Unofficial Affiliate IRC Chat Channel

    Hi Guys,

    I've mentioned before about an official SitePoint IRC channel, but the staff weren't too keen. They did say that I was allowed to make an unofficial one as long as it didn't use their name/trademark.

    The details are

    irc.quakenet.org:6667
    #affiliate

    If you don't already have irc check out www.mirc.com or www.xchat.org. They are both pretty good.

    I look forward to seeing you there

    If everyone joins in, we can make it a really useful resource and share our knowledge in real time.

    I'm very much of an IRC guide myself, but I don't really see the usage of this channel for various reasons. I think this place, with its activity, is the perfect forum/medium/whatever for these types of discussions, and I don't really see too many advantages with doing it in real time. The way I see it, it would either be too inactive to be of any use at all, or too crowded to keep track of different things. Not sure there's an "inbetween".

    I might stop by though.

    Well last time we had about 6-10 people in it and it was really great. We covered a lot of things and helped each out a lot too. It's definitely worth stopping by.

    This place is so busy it's like a live chat room anyway.

    And best of all. It's SEARCHABLE!! Something that IRC just can't compete with. I can log on any time I want and see what I missed. Don't have to stay logged on like I do on IRC just to have chat logs.

    It's also easy to reference old threads so when weirdo scammers try to pull a fast one in the marketplace forums you have solid proof to expose them.

    I think it is a ok idea but i dont see how it would be useful as previously mentioned what is the point because you can aska question and discuss it but you dont necasarily have the people that can really help the best there. In reality can you imagine if all sitepoint members jumped on there it would be total bedlem.

    Well the good thing with such a channel however would be that you could just hop in and ask the people there how they like your new layout, or how you could improve your ad placement.
    At least if there's not to many people there... chat rooms get unusable then imo.
