    It would be really neat to integrate the iptf irc channel into the site. It could be done with a java widget. It would give the irc channel a few more users, because it is pretty dead unless there is a contest that involves the irc in some way. It would make iptf all the more better and easier.

    The #ipodtouchfans channel on freenode is UNOFFICIAL.

    A live chat feature on this site is not feasible because it cannot be effectively moderated.

    How does it being "official" or not affect your (or anyone's) use of it? If you want to use it, go ahead.
