When I said it's probably okay to invite some friends over, I didn't assume you were planning on transferring a whole community over. For the curious ones out there, the room is an open source package
that simply needs a PHP server and database to work. If you're looking for something less buggy I recommend setting up an IRC channel or connect from the browser with Kiwiirc
. You'd imagine it makes more sense to have your own moderators than someone else's anyway.
PS, since Smart Guy's description of the chat room was more than lacking, the domain belongs to one of the forum's moderators and is in varying use by the members as an extension of the forum. It's by no means deserted, only used less often than it's been earlier.
PS. Feel free to drop in if you like, that's not what I'm saying, but let's leave the invasion ideas at the doorstep, okay?
