Hi everyone, our chatroom is now available on IRC. You can get an IRC client if you dont have one already, such as x-chat from http://www.xchat.org (download for windows from http://xchat.org/files/binary/win32/xchat-2.0.10b.exe )
The server is irc.freenode.net The room name is #wrongplanet
We will be having a link from the site soon, with an applet.
See you there!

The new chatroom uses Java yes ? not to sound ungrateful but java as a net tool i found to be very buggy and secure as having an unlocked door in a house.

Hi V111, having consulted an expert on Java I have been reliably informed that Java is more secure because it runs on a virtual machine. Sadly the old chatroom was very buggy, so the new chat is much better. Many hundreds of thousands of people use IRC every day, its a great method for talking to one another thats free :)


This is very true. The Java virtual machine creates a sandbox and does not allow access to anything outside the sandbox. As a result, your machine will not be able to be hurt.

Just use mIRC to connect to the chatroom - it's ALOT easier in my opinion. :D

Lately, I've been worrying about privacy in the chatroom. Does anyone log the conversations taking place there?

Yes, the chats in the chat room are logged.

I would warn anyone not to say any private information in them anyways because anyone in the room knows what you said. There are more private ways to talk to someone than IRC.

Aye, I automaticly log ALL convos, for the purposes of legality. That way, if anything is said in there that violates the law/WP rules, I pass it on to bouch or alex (who, far as I know, also log the chat)
