Does GCL really want its chatroom?
« on: March 01, 2008, 10:38:45 pm »
So here's this chatroom. We'll call it #glitchcity. You can go there by clicking "Chatroom" up on that menu there. This chatroom has been known by various names, including #superglitch and #elchampinon, throughout its relatively miserable past which goes back all the way to 2005, in the days of the Old GC. There used to be ACE91's glitch trivia game (page 2), but that didn't last long.

It was mostly dead, though. Then came early 2007. The chatroom, although at first an appendage of GCL, slowly developed its own secluded culture and is now "owned" (metaphorically) by an "IRC cabal" who, although being members (and indeed, mostly staff) of the site, have resisted my previous attempts to bring the chatroom back in line with the site.

I've decided that making unilateral decisions doesn't work out well, so I'm asking you, the GCL community, guests, members, current IRC users and non-IRC users alike: Do you want this chatroom back?

I don't really see what the freaking problem is, really.
I mean, it seems fine the way it is now, or is there something that I'm just not seeming to get for some reason?

I'd like to point out something: remember, most of you rarely go to it.

The problem is that the channel has become too distinct from the site. Although some of the members and the name still remain, I find it staggering that you don't see it as a problem if users of this site and forum are being deterred from the channel because of cliqueism.

And no, I'm not talking about perverseness. That's a separate issue (btw, I don't have a problem with perverseness myself, although if the community does, then well...)

I'd like to point out something: remember, most of you rarely go to it.
I'd like to point out something too: perhaps my post explains why people don't go to it.

True, but perhaps GCL people don't care about chatrooms.

And if they don't, well, nothing's gonna change.

Abwayax is right on the reason most, ok well I, dont go on the chat room. It has nothing to do with anything on the site. Not only that, its nothing intresting. Mostly just all talk on some new manga or teachers or school. That sucks. Main reason why chatroom doesn't see me all that much. The pervyness doesn't help eather, but thats not my major issue. I would like the old chatroom back. Because Abwayax is right, there is not really a glitch city chatroom anymore. Its just too diffrent and it sucks really.

I have a Youtube account, pass it on

I think that a reason that a lot of people don't go to the chatroom is that a lot of the members are about 8-13 years of age and their parents would ground them if they were on a chatroom.

Oh hell, it doesn't seem like it'd make much difference if it was more related to the site, since we'd continue to talk as we normally do, then people would again stop coming on, then it'd be back to the way it is now.

So yeah, there wouldn't be much point in it.

Me and Gary used it for discussing glitches, of course a two person discussion is a bit short.
Yeah, if you want to, get rid of it, the people who do go on don't use pjIRC anyway...

If you want to talk one-on-one just PM back and fourth, simple.

I don't go on as I am probably not allowed on chatrooms, but I might give it more consideration if it were actually about ( :o) glitches. It is now more or less a completely seperate thing, so yeah, I want it "back".

Erm... IRC channels are generally notorious for developing their own separate culture from their website of origin, without exception. With that in mind, this isn't really that big of a deal, and I'm surprised you're making one out of it.

WE HAVE A CHATROOM???  :???:

Jk.

The chatroom is, in the basic sense, 'Off Topic'. But, really, just ignore it.

Why? If the noobs didn't have a place to spam, they might overload forum games.

Or, spam the Glitches Boards, where the real people do stuff.

It boggles the mind... Maybe keeping it is saving us... Though not our sanity.
GONE.

So there are only n00bs on it? It is mainly Admins and Mods that go on it :P
