Hi users of Ozzu,

Just though i'd do a vote to see if anyone would like an IRC server for Ozzu not sure how it would be orginized but i'm sure something could happen. :D

Well i though if everyone could live chat, it could be a kool thing for start.

Would raise visitors not just for chat but the forums...

Please vote in the poll.

David. :P

David -- the search option at OZZU isn't the best...don't feel that bad...I just remembered asking the same question.

Other than the reasons in the topic ATNO linked to above, I favor the forums for the fact that I can always reference an older topic without having to log it like I would on chat :D

I think someone should write a php function that is set on a cron tab that creates takes the irc log and uploads it. Then the website should have a link on it to the log. That way any discussion can be searchable.

Well, the PHP script would need to pull that log from somewhere...

As far as perpetual loggin, the best bet would be having an Eggdrop bot in the channel logging the events to a txt file on the server. Then the PHP script does its layout thing, then calls the .txt file and echo's its contents.

I don't necessarily think 24/7 logging would be the best thing though. I think if an IRC channel WERE to happen, a weekly scheduled live chat, with Q&A or general open discussion, and have it log those periods, for publishing on the site would be the best bet.

Then just have it as a regular general non-help chat the rest of the time :)
