Megatokyo chat

Post by Okashinamaru » Mon Jul 24, 2017 7:41 am

I decided to create a chat for the more casual followers of MT since there (more or less) isn't one. Technically the irc channel exists and is good for following fred directly, but it's not very user friendly and doesn't give you many features for casual chat (like fonts, user icons/profiles, the ability to post images and so on).

Unofficial Megatokyo Chat

It's basically just something I decided to do on a whim, but if it gains interest there is a code so that it can be embedded on the MT site, and if any forum mods decide to participate I'll extend moderator privileges by default. So pretty much have fun, don't be a douche and hopefully I'll see some of you there.

Obligatory "There's a comic?" here.

Also, I'm surprised that nobody's thought to set up an MTF Discord by now, given how many of us actually use Discord (as opposed to IRC, which is constantly never active anymore).

Fred did set up a Discord for MT.

I don't think anyone has used it yet though.

It's a long-standing joke in the Megatokyo Central to pretend like they don't know there is a comic. :)

We'll have to see what becomes of MT Central now. I don't know how much the old forum's instability had to do with it and how much was just time and attrition, but the "haven't read the comic in years" crowd seemed to have died off.

I know in my case, it had everything to do with it. But that's just me.

Okay, I'll go ahead and say it:

"There's a website here?"

Happy now? :roll:

Well, the MT Discord seems to be attracting a fair number of folks since Fred tweeted the link. Nice to have a chat in addition to the forums.

Thanks for spurring action on this, Okashinamaru.

With regard to the original chatango idea, I believe I just popped its figurative cherry. I'll leave it open for a while or so out of curiosity.

Strictly speaking, would this activity (waiting to see if anyone else bites) be "trolling"? :?
You know how when you do laundry, you have that one sock left that doesn't match any of the others? That's me.

Can't access either chatango or discord from here, so I'll just have to leave my foolish thoughts and ideas here..... :roll:

Where is the #megatokyo channel these days? I remember when it used to be on Rizon, but it seems to have moved since then.

Years ago? Perhaps I'm totally misremembering. This is 8 or 9 years ago for me, I think. Memory is not what it used to be, and it was never too good =] .
