I was wondering what folks on here would think about having a Chat Room for the forum so folks can join the chat room and talk to each other about the game and just general conversations.

 

You could have rooms for GTAV/Online, San Andreas and a general chat room to just go and shoot the breeze.

 

Is it possible to have chat rooms for this site?

 

What would you guys think of that? Would you use it?

GTANet already has it's own IRC network.

Have a look here. Connect to GTANET [webirc], choose whatever nickname you want and then choose one of the channels you want to connect to, e.g. #gta5.

Then how about advertising it on here so more people know about it and use it?

 

Like myself i've been a member here for almost a year now and had no clue about the GTAF IRC chat and i'm sure i am not the only one.

 

Is there a list of IRC Channels connected to the forum?

How about actually looking around instead of blaming us because you didn't know about it?

I'm not blaming you sorry if it came off that way.

 

i was just merely suggesting to advertise it since there is nothing on the forum that tells people about it since it's on a completely difference site that many people don't know about.

 

I did look around the forum for the IRC chat before i made this suggestion and i had forgotten about the gtanet.com site but still people don't know about that site either or if they do they aline it with the modding part of GTA and don't realize that it has an IRC chat too.

 

I was just suggesting letting people know about it so more people will loo to use it.

You guys are like vultures, this is the support area and he's right in saying it isn't advertised on GTAForums..because it isn't. Admittedly I thought it was common knowledge we have IRC, but you don't know something unless you ask. 

 

We're working on some issues at the moment, and fixing the www.gtanet.com/chat page is on the to-do list. I'm sure once it actually works we can think about placing a link on the forum footer.

 

In the meantime use a browser based client like Mibbit or an IRC program like mIRC and connect using server irc.gtanet.com. A lot of them aren't that active, but the main channel is #gta5 and I believe if you use a command like /list it lists all the channels available.

It's not advertised at all, yeah. The problem is we've tried on multiple occasions [even during promotion of GTAV] to promote active IRC channels and it's always ended up with people coming in, waiting a few minutes for someone to say something and then leaving. 

 

This might not be specific to GTANet or GTAForums, but I feel as though IRC in general is a dying thing. Then again it's been dead for a long time, and I doubt the people who are on it will ever leave voluntarily.
