    Default Yes we have an IRC channel. And yes, we've been waiting for you

    In continuation of NEO|Phyte's IRC threads such as this one, I'd like to take the time to remind people that, yes, we do indeed have an IRC channel! In order to alleviate concerns about the complexity of setting up an IRC client, we've simply set up a widget that allows you to connect to the channel in two clicks, so that forum-goers who haven't even heard of IRC can join in.

    1. Go to the widget page here.
    2. Pick a nickname, preferably similar to the one you use here for easy recognizability.
    3. Hit Connect. Let the widget warm up, and you're in!

    It's a great community, with recognizable members such Fax Celestis, Gralamin, AstralFire, NEO|Phyte and SweetRein, as well as many other frequent visitors to the forum. Ongoing games are semi-frequent if that's your thing, and we've got an in-channel dicebot to help with such things.

    Probably best of all, you get to interact with other GITP forum-goers, even if the boards are down, without having to worry about furious debate over the monk's merits, and with more freedom to work with - less moderation, no scrubbed posts, and no locked threads!

    If you have a traditional IRC client, you can reach us at the server irc.gamesurge.net, channel #giantitp.

    With that, join us here at the IRC chat, and have fun!

    We also organize and run many games, D&D or otherwise. Real-time is so much better than PbP. Better enough that you should drop by.

    How often are these run? And is it the entire IRC, or only a select few?

    Games usually run weekly, almost every day of the week in fact. The games themselves don't happen in the channel itself (usually on another channel or MapTool) but they're organized through the main channel.

    As the owner of the channel, I suppose I'd better post here too. Not sure the exact date I registered the channel, but it's certainly over four years since my first IRC thread. Maybe we'll come up with something fancy for the 5 year anniversary. Assuming we don't forget by the time it gets here.

    The channel becomes most active between from about 1700 to 0200 (GMT), since a lot of people there are American or Canadian.

    There are usually a couple of people with their eyes on the channel no matter what the time is, however.

    MSN has sooooo many people in the chat and like 50 conversations going on at once it is so confusing. And no one noticed me when I went in there.
    AIM's got at most 10 people in the chat, usually more like 5 or 6, it's very cozy and personal.

    When in doubt, you could find a few of our signatures - we leave links in there.

    As for games: Generally we end up with around 7 people in a game. Some DMs might allow more or less. But we always need more DMs.

    And Mauve is usually the only person around when I log in. If I'm lucky. It's usually dead when I'm on it (which is rare, I'll admit)

    MSN chats are confusing though. And usually end up in discussions about FFRP, leaving me completely lost. Pros and cons of both!

    Anyway, I'm glad you posted this thread, Starsinger, because the last time one of these threads was around I didn't have IRC. So by the time I got one I'd completely forgotten about this.

    GameSurge is a big network - there might be another Balford somewhere. Alternately, it may not have disconnected properly, which means that you just have to wait a bit until your ghost pings out (a few minutes at the most).

    I agree with this. However, MSN chats are easy to derail.
