So, with the recent mini-drama of the forum going down (which has happened in the past), I realized just how hard it was to get in touch with the majority of the user-base here, in case the site suddenly shuts down for good. That is why I propose we start a AIM or other IM service chatroom so we can keep in touch in emergency situations only. What does everyone think?

Sounds like a useful thing to do.

What about LINE or maybe we can make an alliance or team on another app or something.
OR YOUTUBE discussion.

I have absolutely no clue what you're getting at, Kfpc. YouTube is not real time, so that won't help, and I have no clue what LINE is. I think either AIM or Slack would be the best options if we were to do an emergency outside chat.

AIM sounds good.

But if anyone else has any better suggestions, that's fine.

Also what the hell happened to the forum anyway?

I don't know what happened. That's for DS to know.

Personally, I think AIM is the best place to go for a backup chatroom in case things go wonky. I'd need to know AIM usernames so we could possibly get a group chat going, if people want to do that.

Maybe a skype group chat? not calling each other but just a text chat. I don't have an AIM, or at least I don't think so haha. I have an AOL account though

I got a skype and I think this might work. Does anyone know how a teamspeak server works? If so we might make one of those.

Well either we:
1) rent a server. Seems pointless, no reason to waste money for something we'd use once a year (during maintenance); unless the website is shutdown completely. EDIT: it is really cheap, but like I said, seems like a waste of funds if it probably won't be used
2) find one and hope the owner doesn't kick us out
