I'm sorry if this was brought up before, but I was wondering if we have a dedicated IRC channel for Mogre?

I know there is an Ogre one, but I was wondering if we have one specifically for the Mogre sub-community?

since the mogre community is quite small, there is no irc channel that have been set up. Dunno if people could be interested by one, could be a good idea for simple question related to mogre / .net or just as a hang out spot for mogre user :)

OK, so I've created a channel for us then :-)

irc://freenode/#mogre

I think in the Ogre channel Mogre stuff can get drowned out. A dedicated channel for Mogre can be useful.

Thanks for creating the channel. I registered a nick (MogreMST) at freenode today, but the channel is invite only, so I was not able to join it. I think the channel should be open for all users, so everybody who has questions about Mogre can ask them right away without waiting for somebody to invite them to the channel first.

OOPS! Did not mean to make it invite only... explains why I'm all alone in the dark there... lol

Will fix that now :-)

I only used IRC in the time of playing an online game.
In other cases I never used IRC and have no huge interest (just my point of view).
Even ICQ I don't use. I don't like chats so much.
But in general this could be useful in some cases, if people are interested. (For common chatting or tiny questions.)
Is it possible to change the IRC channel settings, so that visitors can use it without registration?
If this works fine, we could add a notice to the Mogre wiki page.

OK I think it should be fixed now...

I think the channel should be completely open. No need for invite, registration, etc. Anyone can pop in and ask a question.

I clicked to irc://freenode/#mogre and the site chat.mibbit.com opened.
But I couldn't figure out how to join the channel. And a freenode server was not listed.
A more easy solution would be nice:
Click a link (e.g. in the wiki), enter your wanted nickname and then you are in the channel (by use of a website display).

Mibbit is a pile of donkey poop.
If you use FireFox install the ChatZilla addon, otherwise use something like PChat or the freenode webchat interface.

I'm using Chatzilla two. It's very user friendly.

OK, can everybody GET INTO THE CHANNEL? :-)

Gatz, Buety, Smiley - and everybody else.

No excuses accepted.
