I am helping run a IRC Server. For those who don't know what that is it is a network that has several channels. If you guys want any type of chat channel contact me and I will set you up with it! Also this could be a good use for AoF!

How does this work then Toad - I use skype for chat with members on other servers, which is quite good because the history of discussions is kept and if you haven't been involved in discussions one day, you can still read up on it several days later

IRC is just a internet channel that does not need to be downloaded and is for several uses and has lots of options... its a way to meet new people

We had a IRC Channel earlier( 2 actually) but nobody used it.

Imo,Skype is better than any IRC. Or one can use XFire.

And XFire is better than most other chat systems... because usually it automatically logs you in when you turn on your computer (unless you disabled that feature, in which case you have officially annoyed the hell out of me).

I do remember using IRC... I just wish it had a commands list. Took me forever to figure out even a few features, which is a shame because it has a lot.

I do find that xfire is limited in some ways, and it slows up my system incredibly - if you are not logged on to the live chat, you have no way of catching up later on - the benefit of skype (which is free too) is that you can go back through the history of discussions - 30 days back at least - we use it on another server and it is excellent because you can set up different rooms, even if only temporarily - like if there is an epic battle going on you can skip into that room, with restricted access for only those involved - our main room we have called 'the bunker' and a lot of active players go in there regularly - we often just send out a circ in-game and tell people to visit the bunker, and it is used far more than the forum - you can 'star' up important bits of discussions so that someone coming on even days later can pan down the chat and pick upon the important bits and skip the rest if they wish

My skype logs me in when I fire up the computer, so no problems there either

Yeah Skype is really good but when playing games I still think Xfire wins hands down but when discussing Ikariam etc then Skype would actually be useful due to the benefits discussed above.

Especially being able to 'catch up' on conversations.

This IRC has too many commands... bans, op, voices, hundreds more

Cant access the the java one bro...Anyway i dont like the other one, it seems like it kinda share with the public, no security. We want a chat that is both convinience and secure from moles from other alliances.

Im kinda rooting out for skype.

SKYPE SKYPE SKYPE..... Thumbs Up


Go for Skype.

AoF's Discovery branch will use Skype. It is better that we all use Skype.

However,we will continue to have a presence on XFire.
Maybe for some other game we will use XFire. For those who want to join AoF on Xfire please contact Titan.(There is a block on Portal that shows AoF presence on XFire. If you already have a Xfire account then you should join AoF on Xfire.)

@Kaz:
I can add a password and this server for the channel. This server is new and has only 75 users. I am trying to help a friend get more users... I believe it is aged 2-3 years old and my friend is losing users and wants to continue his channel... All channels are free and unlimited. You can name a bot that adds you to the admin when you return to your channels.


@Geromix:
Skype is good but for those who don't and can't download IRC is completely downloadable free. So you can communicate with players other that AoF people and invite them in.

Ok I have made the changes.

You can see a link to the IRC Chat server and Skype download link below the Xfire info.

I request that the leaders of Ikariam branch create its own Skype channel/group and create a new thread where all members can post their usernames so that they can be added to the AoF Ikariam Skype group/channel.
The link to this thread will then be given on the Portal.

AoF Disco branch will do the same.

Arch_Vile,I will still say that you should use Skype as well and list usernames in a secure forum.
