I'll use a shoutbox but I won't use the IRC.

Feels more homey and friendly, more like a platform for a daily "Hello!" than the void that is the IRC. No offense, I just really don't like IRCs.

My tulpas and I have a Q&A thread, which was the first (and largest) of its kind. Feel free to ask us stuff.

As a person that uses both the IRC and the forum regularly, I can see some issues with the way things are set up. The one of most importance, I feel, is that it separates the Tulpa.info community into two groups. I've already seen the problem it causes: the two groups have a tendency to either look down on, regard with contempt, or stereotype the other. Over time, it turned in to Forum vs. IRC, and bitterness was all over the place when it really didn't need to be.

 

At this point, the irc and forum are separate groups of people, and trying to push them together would be difficult, especially those who have had scuffles with those on the other "side".

 

That said, I can't really argue for a shoutbox effectively, so I will not. The server issue does seem like a legit concern. I just wanted to weigh in on why folks don't like the idea of going to the IRC now.

My only problem with a shoutbox for the forum is people will use it like the IRC. Shoutboxes are supposed to be drop-in quick conversations or discussions, but for some reason I just know people will have huge textwalls of conversations on it. Maybe the IRC just needs to be more easily accessible or something, it doesn't seem very inviting as-is imo.

Seems like the two communities just need to know whats going on... maybe just start up a thread called "The best of IRC" Where people can post interesting quotes from IRC, to draw more interest in it, like reporters or something :P

I recall that there was a thread like this in the past.

 

Eh, you could probably c/p some stuff from the #tulpa.info channel whenever someone explains something interesting in a coherent way. Examples of how people help each other, generally.


A wise man once said: 'Before judging a man, walk a mile in his shoes. After that, who cares? He's a mile away, and you've got new shoes.'

 

Graced are those who could avoid this phenomenon. This is perhaps the worst expression of evil in humanity's history, but who am I to judge?

We already have one. I am quoted in it somewhere, of course. https://community.tulpa.info/thread-irc-quotes?pid=131767#pid131767
