    Default IRC Chat! And now Discord too!

    link

    That's right! We now have our very own IRC chat just like the one from back in the old days. I'd like to thank Telume for setting it up for us. Enjoy!

    Edit: For those of you who don't have an IRC client program installed on your computer and are having trouble getting the Java one to work, you could also try mibbit or your favorite IRC client.

    Gabi edit: more details here.

    Just thought I'd let everyone know that I've been making it a point to get on IRC whenever I'm online. So if you see me online here or on AIM, chances are I'm also on IRC. Telume and Pokemaster Ash also frequent IRC, so if you go on, you'll most likely not be alone. Of course, if you need any help just ask here, or there if you get to that point .

    I dont even know what IRC is, but youd think it would be as easy as putting in a username and pressing join. It didnt work for me unless Im supposed to be seeing a red x :< lol

    IE 6, Im not sure what all else my computer has on it since I had to reload windows recently >.> so I guess Im starting with a fresh computer practically. Does that mean I have to download Java sun or something like that? I remember getting that once before for something else.

    That could be it. Apparently Microsoft doesn't include Java with new installations of Windows because their .NET competes with it. Anyway, try downloading it. You might want to try the "Do I have Java" thing first though.

    If you can't sign in using the java client just sign in using ChatZilla or mIRC (if you have them). The address is irc.bitsjointirc.net and the room name is #TPM.

    If this is an inconvenience there's always plan B which I had to give to Bulbasaur4 since the LAN she's on hates the applet.

    Why don't you people try #pokemon at irc.darkmyst.org? That one's quite active.

    Java is a pain for me at the moment because my internet security is broken and thinks is blocking Java. Will need to fix that before I join.

    Also, Lady G, is that a TPM related chat? Because I'm fairly sure that's advertising if it isn't.

    It's semi-related to TPM. We've had conversations about TPM in the past. But no, it's not made for TPM if that's what you're asking. I was suggesting sharing that room until we get enough activity to have our own.

    If consider that is advertising, feel free to delete that post.

    Atm there's not too many people because it was just released, Rome wasn't built in a day. I'm pretty sure when the site comes up it'll become active.

    I'll let it stand, it was at least TPM-related.

    It was pretty active last night (well last night my time). Surprisingly enough, we actually talked about pokemon.

    #pbs as in "up with pbs, down with tpm?" (not that I know anything about it now but that is a direct quote from someone).

    Also is #pbs welcome to everyone?


    But really, does #pokemasters even still exist?
    In 20 years, YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook will merge together into one super big time-wasting site called YouTwitFace.

    Which is why this new one was made, besides that people from this site are actually in control of this one.

    Yes, mibbit is for those people who can't use Java. It should make it 10x more accessible to everyone now.

    Hey guys, having some trouble here, I can't log into the chat, it's telling me there are too many connections from my IP. It's probably because I made a typo on my first attempt, so if a "Jef" is on there just kick it.

    Any mibs?

    Edit: Got in through the Java applet, but Mibbit still locks me out. If anyone else is experiencing trouble with Mibbit (the applet used by the chat links here and on the main site), use the Java applet instead, which is linked in this thread.

    So Mibbit is causing the problem then. It's most likely something that they'll have to sort out. In the meantime you can use this link: http://www.pokemon-trading-cards.net/chat/tpm.php

    Edit: Already posted this on the main site but figured I'd put it here too, Mibbit's working again.

    Sadly, noone is using the chat, I'm always alone there... *sits in emo corner*

    EDIT: This isn't the Mibbit I use from the main site... O.o

    I'm glad at least you use it . Some people come on from time to time but usually leave when they see how dead it is.

    WELL. I try, but it's usually so quiet, and huge chats on MSN distract me.
