I'm not sure if this has been suggested yet? Or maybe it's impossible to find a working solution given that Tatsuya isn't super-involved with the forums? But if this hasn't been discussed then what are your thoughts?

it wouldn't be hard to set up an irc or something but I don't see much need for it and it would pretty much always be dead unless we scheduled meetups in it or w/e people do


also the only thing Tat's done recently as far as the technical end of things go, at least that I'm aware of, is remove viewonline_body.tpl, which, naturally, broke the viewonline page, but that's not really significant to whether a Sinfest IRC is workable or not

Isn't there a fester who 'lives' only over in the IRC room and doesn't come to forums anymore? I

Yeah, the IRC room was a fun time.

It's been a while since I hung out in a chat room, that's for sure.

Yeah, we had a constantly busy IRC channel, but that must have been... Six or eight years ago? It's been tried since with no luck. I think we just had more users back then, and they were deeply engaged. People would drive hundreds of miles for Sincons. Now I can barely keep in touch with the festers in my own state.

There are times I really miss those days. I had so many laughs in my dorm room over that stupid channel. I made a lot of great friends in there. I consider many of them lifelong friends.

Oh yes, there were many a Sincon. They still happen occasionally.

Except we rarely refer to them as such. When you, me and Patty hang out I just call it hanging out with friends now.

We had a lot of stuff happen in the past. Hell, Desire married a Sinfester. I almost did. We were all pretty tight back in the day.

And TM married Lilith. Tons of people hooked up or dated. We were like a college dorm.

FYI, TM and Lilith have parted ways.

I still manage to keep in touch with a few former forum goers.

RadioEyes and Jon_Doe are planning on getting married soon, I hear.

Oh jesus, now that you mention it, at least one of my boyfriend's was a 'fester and I met another guy off the forum (he visited, creeped out all my friends by being super clingy, and then I flipped out about possibly having cancer. It was not my best week.)
