    i would like to know that, too.

    i'm not such an irc-fan, but i tried to come into the room and only one man was inside (CrookedRain).
    did i make something wrong?

    what's the point of IRC when there's forums?

    The most I've seen in there is 4 people =/

    Well, IRC does allow for a more rapid discussion, as compared to posting and waiting another few minutes for a person to reply. IRC is real-time.

    and it's the easiest way, if i have such "stupid" questions i'm afraid to post here...

    but when you all have only seen such a few people in there, i maybe didn't do anything wrong with the irc-client.

    Do any of the moderators have any information regarding this?

    I really do wish we had a large irc channel.

    I agree, it would be very intresting to have. I think a bigger effort should be made to promote it and keep it going since we have the large user base.
