    Default IRC client

    Do you think that we could get an IRC client on the website? I know that this is a forum, but having live support that users don't have to pay for would be nice. I'm always on the computer so I could manage and make the chan. I also have experience writing IRC bots. My IRC game bot has 18K+ users. (in about a year) I know all of the protocols for IRC servers so I could even make the client.

    Yeah sounds good to me. We did actually have a chat client for a short period when the forums first started..

    I'll look into it.

    Do you have any servers in mind?

    It would be good to some how intergrate it with the forums. Let the users know of new threads etc.

    That's a good idea! I could program the bot to do that.

    I'm looking into irc clients.

    I used to have a jirc license but its for another domain

    I'll check the vBulletin mod forums and see if there are any IRC plugins.

    Thanks for that.

    I'll look into it. I need to re-license the forums asap so I can download stuff from there again.

    Yes I still have this in mind.

    I need access to the vBulletin mods forum so I can download plugins but as we are currently waiting to upgrade our license, I can't download anything

    I will update you as soon as possible.

    What do we need to do to register at irc.swiftirc.net?

    Do you believe this to be the best irc server to suit our needs?

    If we can host servlets we could easily write own own from scratch giving us great flexibility and intigration

    That would be great! Do you have experience with this?

    It would be brilliant if we could some how make it so when you sign into the forums, you also sign into irc with the same username.

    I may look into getting this on another server. Do we need anything special installed for this?

    For my method just need a server which can run servlets. On top of that it would need access to the login database for the forum so to allow the login to work. But communication between servlets & applets for something such as this is easy enough. I'm not sure about how we could get the login to work because it will sit behind VBulletins API's which I personally am not familiar with, but I'm sure we can hack something together.

    OK cool. I will look into this asap. An Apache server will be OK right?

    I think the login may be an issue but it would be good if people can have the same username on irc as they do on the forums. Maybe some kind of email address verification would do the trick.

    Ye possibly or just get the username which would suffice. Does Apache allow servlets? I use tomcat or glassfish.
