    Many large communities these days run what is called an IRC server for their clients/customers/members.

    I have set up my own community before and I've been a member of many in the past, all using IRC as a tool to communicate surplus to any forums!

    I was hoping this community had something similar or would consider getting it, the process of setting up an IRC server from scratch is somewhat laborious and even tedious but I've been there before and done it so I would be more than happy to lend a helping hand. I was even considering hosting one for you guys myself if the higher powers up there would allow it, I will have to see how my time here goes first though, I've only posted 3 times and don't even physically own my ipod touch yet so maybe in a few weeks time when I'm settled it could be a very real possibility.

    IRC is great for any community, just an idea I'm throwing out there though.

    Peace

    just for the record, there is no "official" channel. however, the unofficial channel mentioned before was set up by members and from what i hear, has been pretty active (though I don't know, because I NEVER log on to IRC - so beware of any impostors).
