Hmmm... It's been some time since I've entered an IRC room... Job usually gets in the way.

Count me in!

Posted by: ll Sam ll Apr 23 2015, 05:23 AM

Come along and drop in from time to time, guys happy.gif usually 5pm/6pm server time is the most active time, plenty of talkative and friendly people in there too!

Will be nice to chat to some of you ~

Awesome! Glad to see some promoting going around! It'll be great to see more people there cat.gif

Posted by: The Majestic Mr L Apr 23 2015, 08:57 AM

Ohey, I'm a fan of chatrooms. I'll probably pop in once or twice now and then. happy.gif

Posted by: fensti Apr 23 2015, 09:23 AM

I might try swinging by at some point. Haven't been in an IRC room in ages though. lol

Posted by: Forget me now Apr 23 2015, 09:28 AM

I'm dropping by when I wake up and then at night :^) It's just that I'm having trouble picking a nickname (Forget gets me mentioned all the time, and Forgetmenow is too big... and it doesn't help that everytime I change my name it goes in the chat and it's embarrassing)

Posted by: Cycloneblaze Apr 23 2015, 11:01 AM

Thanks Raven, it's good to see the chat being promoted! I'm in the chat often enough and I hope to see it flourish and all that. grin.gif

A thread promoting the IRC? Woo! I'm happy to see new faces, I've been in a lot lately and it's fun, especially when we get goin'

Posted by: KatTheBard Apr 23 2015, 11:32 AM

I always forget to load up mIRC, heh...The next couple of days seem like they're going to be crazy on my end, but I'll try to be better about stopping by. cat.gif

Posted by: TogeticFTW Apr 23 2015, 12:15 PM

I don't think I've ever gone in there myself... I might have popped my head in curiously when I had just joined up, but that was a long time ago. I don't know how active I would be since I like to focus on clicking, though admittedly I'm no stranger to multitasking. Question: would it work on my tablet or would I only be able to access it when I'm on my computer? I got a Samsung Galaxy Tab for my birthday on the eleventh of this month and haven't really been able to put it down since. sweat.gif

Yes: you can download an app for irc on android. I personally use AndroIRC! Or, mibbit should work on your tablet's browser too.

Man I haven't been on the IRC in like 5 years. @_@

Posted by: Rhapsody Apr 23 2015, 05:08 PM

Come join us, everyone! Please. It's so much more fun when people actually talk.

I hang around pretty frequently, but if I don't respond I'm probably at work.

Posted by: Ravyne May 1 2015, 06:40 PM

This is probably a dumb question, but what's the link to access the chat? I clicked on the link on the GPX plus Chat page, and it simply led me to a 404 Not Found page on GPX Plus. I then tried removing the gpxplus.net part just to see if that would work, but then that page wouldn't even load.

This is the redirect link for the chat that I got from the Chat page on GPX Plus. Is it correct?

Are you sure? because I'm in there and I didn't see you enter.

Maybe try this instead: https://client01.chat.mibbit.com/#gtsplus@irc.synirc.org

Thanks for letting us know! And thanks Sam for the link!

I think I started using the chat last year in some month that ended with -ember.

Haven't been in recently because my semester is almost over and I've got projects to do.

I'll come in when I can. :]

Posted by: Numpty May 20 2015, 05:15 PM

I'm banned from GTSPLUSCHAT. I severely apologize.

Posted by: Lord Raven May 20 2015, 05:29 PM

Do NOT complain about bans in public. You will PM one of the Chat Ops that were around when you were banned - in this case, me, Rhapsody, or Letan.

This topic is about the IRC channel; you want the section for site and forums questions http://forums.gtsplus.net/index.php?showforum=5, where you'll actually find how to change your banner [url=http://forums.gtsplus.net/index.php?showtopic=4314]. Please take care to make sure you're posting in the right part of the forums when asking your questions.

Just another post to remind people that the IRC is still alive. It hasn't been as active as of late but please come in, say hi, and converse a little bit, and feel free to make fun of certain users in chat *coughthebirdcough*

Posted by: Lord Raven Jul 11 2015, 03:51 AM

Quick update. If mibbit gave you problems before, then try Kiwi by the recommendation of user Doom Hunter.

https://kiwiirc.com/client/irc.synirc.net/#gtsplus

Its interface is better and it is still easy to access.

Hope to see you guys around.

Posted by: Soren Pixels Sep 14 2015, 09:28 AM

Um, is it just me, or is the IRC down? I can't seem to connect through either website, Mibbit or Kiwi. Mibbit just loads forever, and Kiwi can't find the server. Was hoping to chat some people up.

IRC is up, I'm on it right now. It might be you're having trouble connecting to the server yourself, or it might be on Mibbit / Kiwi's end. I dunno what to tell you except that it is up. bucktooth.gif

Have you tried going to kiwiirc.com or whatever and manually entering login details? So instead of the links I provided, you connect to irc.synirc.net (or irc.synirc.org) and channel #gtsplus.

It's working perfectly, if it weren't I'd post an announcement.

Posted by: Lord Raven Oct 23 2015, 02:26 PM

Hey guys, I've noticed a bit as of late that there hasn't been much activity in chat. I'm wondering if there's something we're able to do or something wrong with chat that we should look into?

Posted by: zigazav Mar 16 2016, 12:25 PM

Ummm...Chrome detects Mibbit as a threat to my PC, which it has never detected it as such before... Should I go in anyways...?

Posted by: Tyranisaur Mar 16 2016, 12:31 PM

Depends. 1. Do you want to follow Google's recommendations about what sites to avoid. And 2. If there are exceptions, do you trust Mibbit?

Personally, I don't think it's that much of a risk. That being said, you could access the chat using a different chat client. Other online clients and standalone chat clients are both options that can be used.

I already have a mobile irc client I use for on the go, but I'd like to use an online service for the chat room, as my SSHD does not have allot of memory left, my two halves of the SSHD I mean. The storage space is split between them, and I'd hate to install something to my computer I will barely need. Plus, I don't want to rely on my mobile version for that chat room all the time. Btw, I accidentally gave a down vote on Mibbit on my antivirus extention to Chrome. So that may be also part of the reason it happened. Dunno. Some virus protection services has the habit of overreacting to simple things, thinking it's a virus. Heck, a completely safe unofficial theme was detected as a threat, and a fangame I tried to run of something was detected as a threat when downloaded through my browser. I'm pretty sure you cannot help me with those last ones though, as they are out of the context of this site. I was just speaking of some examples of an virus protection service making random false positives for threats.

Posted by: Cycloneblaze Mar 16 2016, 07:34 PM

Well there is always kiwiirc, linked somewhere in the first post, I think. If you're not downloading a client then it's better than mibbit. Although I don't remember, you might have used kiwi he last time you were in chat.

Posted by: Cycloneblaze Mar 30 2016, 02:33 PM

I am double posting but this message is brought to you with the permission of Lord Raven.
We have some new features in the irc, thanks to the efforts of myself and http://my.gpx.plus/Galaxy!

1. Youtube links
Now, whenever you post a youtube link in chat, Porygon2 (one of our two channel bots) will respond immediately with the title and duration of the video! You can spam the chat with youtube links and we will all know what you're watching.
(note: please do not spam the chat with youtube links. or anything else.)
Notes:
- You can post desktop (http://youtube.com) or mobile (youtu.be) links! Both will work.
- The script is only running if Raven is online on his computer (not his mobile).
- Galaxy wrote this script, so if you like it / something goes wrong, let him know.

2. Tells
This script lets you leave messages for other users in chat! How is that useful, you ask? Because Porygon2 will repeat the message the next time that user speaks - so you can leave messages for people who are away or even not online! They'll get your message the next time they're around. To use this feature, just say '!tell nickname your message here' (no quotes)!
Notes:
- The message is repeated when a user speaks, not when they join / are in chat. That way they're sure to be aware when they get it.
- !tell has to be the first word of your message: you can't misspell it, it can't be in capital letters, and it can't be bold or coloured. There should not be a space before it, either.
- The nickname of the user you want the message to go to must be the second word of your message. If you spell it wrong, they won't get it - for example, 'cycloneblaze' or 'Cyclonblaze' or 'Cyc' will not send a message to me, because my nickname is (usually) 'Cycloneblaze'.
- The message will only be repeated to the exact nickname that you give, so if you leave a message for 'Raven' and he later joins IRC as 'Hank_Scorpio' (or anything else), he won't get it. But when he joins as 'Raven', he will get it then.
- The message can be of any length after that. The !tell, the nickname, and the message should all be separated by spaces from each other.
- Messages aren't private. Everyone can see them when you send them and Raven can read them on his computer (because they're stored there). If you want to send a user a private message then you should use the forums' PM function.
- The script is only running if Raven is online on his computer (not his mobile).
- If there's any problems with this one, contact me (Cycloneblaze). If Porygon2 blows up tell Raven or another op who's in chat. (Don't worry, he won't.)

3. Channel Statistics
This isn't new, but I figured I would remind people. Our second channel bot is ChanStat, a bot that records various interesting statistics about the IRC! You can view them http://goo.gl/0fJ1x3. If you're in chat, you can ask ChanStat for the link by saying !chanstats or @chanstats, and there's a bunch of other commands listed on the bot's website http://chanstat.net/commands.
(As you can guess, we didn't make this one.)

Also, if you feel like annoying Galaxy when he's online, say 'What are you listening to Galaxy?' and he'll tell you what's on his Spotify. Even if he doesn't want to. :^)

I'll take a moment to remind everyone that spam is annoying and these bots / scripts aren't for messing with the chat or other users, but I'm sure you all knew that.
Now go try 'em out!

I made a discord server. I will post more details on it tomorrow, but this is a nice place where we can have various fun nights like movie nights, cards against humanity, etc with voice chat and things to that extent. Just follow the invite and make an account! This will not replace IRC, it'll just be a place for extra shenanigans.

Posted by: Gryphaena Jan 19 2017, 03:25 PM

The discord is fun, you can have an avatar and there are multiple channels to pay attention to if one is so inclined.

The people are interesting as well.

There's also a section for debates if there's a bit of a disagreement going on so they won't disrupt the conversations going on.

I am familiar with (m)IRC, ICQ and Skype but not with Discord. I don't own a headset, microphone or webcam, so would I even be able to use it?

you can pm me, buddy. i dont know why I have to reach out again when i already have. obviously you just dont want to talk about it, you'd rather ban me and move on. you've made it pretty clear that you dont respect me at all, so this doesnt come as a suprise to me. if you'd actually WANT to explain your reasoning behind banning me, go right ahead. im waiting for the pm.

You've been told multiple times to take it up in private, we are not responsible for requesting a discussion regarding a possible ban removal nor do we have any obligation to revoke bans from the Discord server as it is independent from GPX+ itself. I'm issuing you a warning for both refusing to take this up in private as well as flamebaiting, all further posts about this will receive the adequate spam warning.
