I'll vouch for this.  Chatting with folks would be great!

I'm ambivalent about this. It's not something I'd use.

In my admin experience, chats normally cause decent conversation concepts to devolve into mindless drivel in record time.

Forums are a nice neat way to separate what you do and don't want to read about.
- Are you going to have a separate Chat session for every forum topic?
- Just every grouping?
- Just one big Chat for all logged-in users?

Seems like a lot of effort, for little reward.

Well my whole purpose would be so that if someone replies to your post with something you don't understand you don't have to go through 6 pages of one sentence posts to finally get it figured out.

Nope, instead you can wait a day until Time-zones match, and in the meantime deal with other users hogging the chat lines.

Or you might find that person B) understood your post, and corrected person A) before you even realised.

Every communication medium has flaws....

Find an IRC client (Google for one).
Find an IRC server (irc.slashnet.org).
Create a Shadowrun channel (/join #shadowrun)
...
Profit!

Absolute power is kinda neat.

I'm always amused by the Ferengi mindset common to most Shadowrunners  ;D

Yes, but Slashnet has all of the IRC with none of the Dumpshockness.

Well.  It's still Slashnet.  :)

And honestly, there's not much DUmpshockness to the DS IRC server, really.  I don't even think DS has a link to it anymore anywhere, for some reason.  *shrug*  Basically, it was set up by Jackal, an old school Shadowrunner, and he runs it on his own.  It's got a pretty light SR population, and no "outside" population to pollute it.

Yeah, keep the Jackals out... no ...wait. Crap...

yeah but even that takes time sometimes, really i feel its a toss up, there are times like tonight when i want the IRC working and people on it, an then there are times when i'm happy that they arent because it would make things so bloody confusing
May god grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, to change the things I can, and the firepower to make the difference.
