    Restoring IRC, and an offer.

    I am a huge fan of IRC. No other chat client can match its simplicity and general awesomeness.

    As it so happens, I own an IRC network. I'd like to invite MPGH to restore its IRC channel there. An administrator can own the channel and they can give op to MPGH staff as they wish.

    My role would be only that of a systems admin, making sure no users are being abusive to our network resources. The channel would be completely run by MPGH staff and I would not interfere with that.

    Until we get some sort of official approval everyone is welcome to join me in the channel.

    Server: irc.strictfp.com (in case you're wondering 'strictfp' is a little-known Java keyword)
    Channel: #mpgh
    No IRC client? No problem, we have webchat.
    StrictFP Web IRC

    Hope to see some of you there. I know there must be at least some irc fans out there.

    I look forward to seeing what the staff have to say about this.

    See you in IRC,
    Tekk

    We always host it on irc.mpgh.net. The main problem is it's not worth the hassle. People will spam the channel with bots, mass-join/mass-leave with botnets, send viruses to everyone in the channel, etc...

    Basically not worth the trouble, on a forum full of script kiddies. =\

    That's what channel bans and k/g:lines are for.

    I like this idea, maybe someone can write some kind of bot that you log into with your forum username/password and upon successful login gives you +v so you can talk in the room which would be +m.

    Edit: new developments! First conversation XD

    Good luck lol. If you ever write an auth script ask Arun if he wants to try and set up IRC again, I doubt anything else will work /

    With the site a lot larger now, it might be worth a shot... I'd only be on board with some sort of forum integration, even klines take time when there is a mass join from botnets, best method would to require a forum account.
