IRC Questions

Now I know that it was just recently made a rule to not talk about this here, but I do have a legit question. I don't frequent IRC, so I don't know who hangs out where, so I figured this would be the best place to post my, what I feel are legit, questions.

I hear things like #winamp and #avs thrown around. I understand that those are different "rooms" that people chat in. That much I get. What I don't get is this: I don't ever post in the AVS part of the forum here, so would it be a big deal if I popped in to #AVS? Basically is #AVS only talk of AVS stuff or is it kinda like the AVS people with a GD style or what? And is #winamp for everyone, or just people from GD?

I get that no matter what forum you frequent you'll be allowed to enter each room, but is there one that you "should" go to because more people from your forum go there?

I hope this is clear enough, I am kind of confusing myself. If a mod feels this needs to be locked, so be it, I really just had some questions that I felt would be best answered by multiple people, rather than an individual by PM. (or many individuals by PM).

Thanks for the help (i hope)

You're welcomed to both #******* and #winamp. Just get mIRC and click on the links in my sig. It'll direct you to the rooms. #******* isn't really involving those of the AVS forum, mainly just people from the forum, same for #winamp.

the differences between the 2 chat rooms has been clarified in this thread: http://forums.winamp.com/showthread....hreadid=128024

Is one better than the other? it really depends on what your opinion of the winamp forums are. if you hate them: join #*******, if you dont, go to #winamp.

But the rules state that keep whatever goes on over there over there, basically.

So dont be bitching that you got kickbanned from one of them and bring it to the forums

#******* to my understanding has nothing to do with avs the visualisation. I dont even think it's been mentioned while i've been in there. It's like #winamp, in that it's an off topic kinda place where you can just talk about whatever...The only difference is the people in them. In #******* you'll find a lot of ex members along with current members, in #winamp it's mostly current (and active) members.

[edit]Why is it that when no-one replies to a thread for nearly half an hour, as soon as i hit the submit reply button 2 other people do...[/edit]

Trillian is the worst program you could possibly use to connect to IRC
