Classical Music Chat Room
« on: January 13, 2012, 03:37:42 PM »
I decided to give this its own thread, since most people probably won't see it in the chat thread (just a copy-paste):

Hey, if anyone is actually interested in joining a real classical chatroom, I'm an operator at an IRC channel that is originally affiliated with another music forum, but we just invite everyone now from anywhere (since its now kinda dead). If anyone knows how to use IRC and is interested, we are on the PSIGenix network (irc.psigenix.net) at the #concerthall channel. Stop by if you want! I'm trying to get it going, and we can use more musically interested people.

If you want to chat, but don't know much about IRC, here is a quick link to a web-based version so you don't have to download anything and just want to pop in:

http://mibbit.com/#concerthall@irc.psigenix.net

My nick there is Buckwalt (in case you're having trouble finding me).

Really? Must not be working correctly. There are people in there and I have been watching it the whole time. I'll check out that link. There might be something wrong.

EDIT: Everything is fine on both ends. There are people in here. Come on in! If you don't see anyone talking, or anyone there, say something and see what happens. There are always at least 5-10 people in.

When I use that link: 1. what do I choose to connect to? and 2. what channel do I type in? I'm pretty clueless as to what to do.

I was in, I left 10 lonley notes to myself over the hour, then left.  So I did say something.  I said 10 things!  I will try again, but if no-one is there I will boil all my Saint saens symphonies in fury.   >:(

In the 1980s there was a creative punk group called "Big Audio Dynamite".  I have decided to apply the term to you, my man.  And I still haven't properly finished your Screenplay yet.  Too bad.  Take care anyway old chum, I'm off to listen to Brahms!

Just click the link, set your nick, and hit Go. Don't touch any other settings. It will open it up in a few seconds, you'll see all the users on the right side, and you can just chat away.

Trust me, it IS working correctly. I have been chatting in it for the past while nonstop and I've been watching to see if anyone comes in.

I have cancelled the meeting with the Quakers.  That chat is working.   0:)

I have removed some posts from this which I made - they were inaccurate.  That chatroom is working fine, and I suspect it needs some support!  I for one think its great chatting realtime about music, and there is a 'jukebox' function on to which you can add from your music for all to listen to.

It's not working for me. I chose my nick name and I hit "connect" but nothing is happening.

Not connect, John, you have to click on the Go button which is to the right of channel's name. Connect is the tab within which you are currently located.

I've seen a few people come in for a minute and leave. Is there a problem with mibbit? I can look for another online IRC client if need be. Keep trying, though! If you come in and no one says anything, wait a few minutes. There are some idle times. Say something and someone will say something back!

Just bumping this again (until it can get stickied), with hopes that more people come in!

I did propose a chatbox a while back, but the admittedly logical response was "isn't that what the forum is for?". Consequently I'm not too sure that this will be stickied, although as it's linked in your sig, it should still get some exposure.

Well, I am hoping that this will do until there is a chatbox. I am glad that the people that have tried it out have enjoyed it.

Been a while since any GMG'ers have come in. Don't be afraid to just drop by for a bit to say a brief hello!

Okay, so I'm the only one who ever goes in the chatroom late at night (it's 11:30 pm now).

I haven't ever seen you come in. Are you sure you're joining correctly? Also don't worry about coming in late. I am a bit of a night owl, as are a few others in the chatroom.

I have no idea what I'm doing. I go and type in my user name and in under channel I type in #concerthall and click connect because there is NO go button.
