As I just posted in the news of the Mega Man PC Website: Dr. Cossack's Lab:

Quote:
The existing chatroom system, powered by an IRC server and supported by a Java applet, has been replaced in favor of a web-based system running X7 Chat. The new system has to be accessed through your web browser at the same address as before, and includes most of the features you'd expect from a common chat system: multiple rooms as needed, private chatting, user accounts, and so on. Several settings can be set to customize it, allowing you to have something matching your preferences.

While this new setup makes it impossible to connect using your favorite IRC client, there are some upsides too. One of the major points is that the user accounts are now linked with the message board data: everyone who happens to be a member there will automatically be able to enter the chatroom merely by entering their username and password! This makes it easier to identify people and avoid impersonation problems. The data integration also works in the other way, since the online users in the chatroom are now displayed on the message board's front page in the "Who's Online" block. That gives you a chance to know that people are already in there, so you can join in whenever you want.

Additionally, temporary extra rooms can be created by anyone for special purposes: discussion centered around a special theme, role play sessions, or anything else suiting you.


I'm also using this opportunity to relaunch the Saturday night chats. Those have been going on for a long, long time, but the last several months have been more quiet with the former regulars fading away as they get busy somewhere else. The idea goes as such: every Saturday, at 10pm EST or so, everyone available gathers in the chatroom to talk about Mega Man, recent events, or anything else worth a chat! I'm hoping to see at least a few of you participating every week!

I was skeptical of the move from IRC... I love the work you've done, Doc.

Did the chat die, did everyone go back to IRC, or am I just viewing the message board and chatroom at the wrong times?

Wrong times likely. ;o

If you're free have you tried on Saturdays? I think that's the day that people here get together to chat if they can.

I can vouch that the chat was active last Saturday, at least. :)

I'm still a big supporter of IRC, however, I -can- run that chat while on my DS Browser, so a win is for that, though I haven't tried it with anyone other than myself currently :P

For your information, the Saturday Night chats are still going on to this day! Don't be shy, stop for a little while, sometime around 10pm EST every Saturday!
