Just a sugestion. Would be much better if we had a chatroom.
i’d hit it
Noted. I’ll pass the word along, but we have some crucial bugs to squash before spending time adding chat.
Do any of you guys use IRC? We had a #knowyourmeme channel on Freenode for a while that I just re-opened… "irc://irc.freenode.net/#knowyourmeme":irc://irc.freenode.net/#knowyourmeme
yea i understand bugs shal be squashed efore anything new, lolz
Nope, tried your url and dosnt work on Fire Fox
We need an Ideas/Suggestions sticky.
meh, sounds complicated
Just download and install the appropriate program, click the link, and Firefox will tell ask you if you want to use it, click on the program you have, then you’ll get taken right to the IRC channel. Not complicated at all.
is there a way to mask my ip for IRC? or is it all viewable?
also mIRC, is it free?
Use a proxy. Or 7 proxies.
I like Proximizer. Finding an open proxy that FreeNodes will accept is hard, though.
I just use my own IP when using IRCs.
mIRC is making me pay, I just checked, I dont have any money for this. is there any other recommendations?
Yeah, use XChat.
I’ll look, if it makes me pay Im just gonna go with Chatzilla addon for FF
Its probably better to embed the IRC chatroom on the website.
Is that possible?
Testing out some adminnery here…
EDIT: no dice. Put the embed here for the time being => http://jamiedubs.com/chat/
EDIT2: apparently Freenode blocked Mibbit… there’s a web client here: http://webchat.freenode.net/ -- join the #knowyourmeme channel
What about an embedded Twitter chatbox?
mIRC is free, you just have to wait a little before the “connect” button comes to life. You don’t have to pay anything.
That’s what I’m using and I reached the Irc channel without any problems.
when i try to open the irc it gives me this:
you say i need to download something to open it but im on my school’s computer so i cant XP
try this: http://webchat.freenode.net/
for “channels” type “#knowyourmeme”
@Tomberry hey thanks, @Shadowfury I was working with the ResHack yesterday, it turns out I have to actually extract the installer and go in and edit the mIRC.exe it’s self not the setup file, the only problem i face is utter corruption of the setup file and not being able to uninstall it.
so people can find the chat room url
its in jamies’ first post in this thread

Binary, I don’t think anyone cares to go to an extra effort to understand you when you’re speaking english underneath the binary.
He’s actually referring to that fact, Chris:
im not too good with chat rooms people get annoyed with me :(

Dude, dont say that about Jamie, or any other admin
It’s your own fault. If you’d just use English like the rest of us, Emerelds wouldn’t have to exploit your posts for comedic effect.
@People who don’t care to translate:
Binary: “it’s not like i choose to do this im cursed you see”
“dont poke fun it’s not nice”
Reminds me of what Jostin said about his username being in normal writing.
i call trolling on the binary
Yup. And it was Redspear.
That’s justsad, Redspear banned again? I guess he isn’t coming back this time.
Oh no, I haven’t banned him. You see, tomorrow, there will be a new system in place that will allow users to rate eachother’s karma. It’s going to be one of the best new features around. Once a user’s karma level drops to a certain point, then we know that some sort of further action ought to be taken.
Redspear, how are you feeling about your karma?
Wow! It seems that KYM has a lot in store for it tomorrow. I can’t wait.
Please, don’t feel so bad.
At least, he made some good meme entries…
That is true. I can’t disagree with that fact. Oh well, we’ll what we’ll see tomorrow in terms of how the users feel about different users. This is going to be done anonymously, right?
Yeah, we can’t say he didn’t contribute anything. But it would have been nice if there had been less trolling and more contributing on his part.
Every one of his entries has been terrible. I have done entire rewrites on almost everything he’s ever submitted, as I have done for most poorly written meme entries, especially since he’s so vocal about demanding help.
I have that as my wallpaper on my computer in Business Law class.
@Chris that was all you? I thought Redspear actually made some decent entries…
Most of you who have had meme submissions confirmed are familiar with the fact that we admins will edit your entries, correct? When an article is in Submissions and is being researched, that means what it says. It is literally waiting in queue for Admins to turn them into an article that provides as many verifiable facts about the meme as we can find about it.
Take a look at the entries of his that I haven’t gotten to yet.
On top of that, there have been times that I’ve just finished editing one of his entries, and he sends me a message saying “I just fixed this up.”
I’ve banned him before, and other admins had me unban him since he sent us email after email talking about how he loves the site so much and he promises he’ll never do it again etc etc etc.
I will not be updating anything else that Redspear submits.
