So, you may have noticed in my sig recently that I mention a Chat

Ultimate-Guitar has a nice irc-based chatroom that for most of the site's tenure, served the purpose you lot try to serve with threads upon threads upon threads.
One would log in, find some other random UGers, and chew the fat for a while. Hell, for a while there was a good presence of the mod team.

The point is, we could still be doing that and for the most part we aren't. I think that's a problem. Let's get some more life back in this chat.

So, here's the old chat info thread which has a lot of useful stuff in it.
One note, There's a list of rules in that thread but in general chat only has one major rule:

Don't be a total dick. That's really all we ask.

I know there are some problems. For some of you the link doesn't work, but there are ways around that with minimal effort. One such method is ircster which runs in your browser.
You may get there and there aren't very many people or it's quiet. Chances are if people there, they're willing to talk, just give us a minute.

Anyway, for those of you who are interested but can't get java chat to work for you, here's what you do for ircster. click chat and when this pops up:



Put #ultimate-guitar in the "Channel" text box like so and put your username in the "Nick" text box.


tl;dr: UG has a chatroom that could be really fun again if people came and hang out/chatted. You know I'm srs cause I'm not using comic sans for once.

EDIT - For those who can't get java chat (the link up top) to start up properly. Here are a couple of possible solutions.


First, I would suggest everyone make sure they're up to date for java and make sure when you go in:

Also, anyone trying to access the chat through Java will have to make sure they click NO and don't block the application.

I prefer mIRC for chat myself.
I don't use it much these days though, but I used to use it quite a bit.


The server information is in that image, btw. irc.ircster.com for anyone who has an irc client sitting around on their comp.

None of the old chat regs use that.

I didn't know our chat thing was through irc. Guess that's excuse enough to get my irc client set back up.

Yes I approve of this. Please god, get that chat back up and running. And the new Chat thread just takes away from the rest of the Pit and potential quirky threads.

The chat can be quiet at times, but give it a few tries if it is. It can be fun when it gets going though.

Just for a minute let's all do the bump.


On-topic: Look, if you prefer doing your thing, that's cool. Pseudo-animosity aside, I don't really care. I'm just trying to get people on board with something that could be pretty cool in the long run.

Why does your signature link to a chat thread when it could just link to chat?

Because the Java chat (the link up at the top of the page between "new posts" and "log out") doesn't work for everybody so coming here is more helpful?

But if it doesn't work for them by clicking the link, it's not going to work if they come into this thread and click the link into the OP. And by having a thread, you're already defeating the purpose of not having a thread.

And a chat thread is far superior anyway.

They removed it from UG like a year and a half ago because it was glitchy. You can still use Meebo, just not through UG,. There are better IM services so nobody would though.

Well, if they come to this thread, click the link, and the java chat doesn't work, I've provided alternative means for them to get to the actual chat. The point of the thread is to raise awareness and useful info for the time being.

Also, bolded is where our opinions differ, sir. Chat doesn't exactly have to abide by forum rules as they're only loosely affiliated. Also people reply in real time instead of 3 hours and 60 posts later.
