#winamp launch =)

I'm pretty sure some of you have heard of #*******, for a while now its been up and running, it's been going on for almost 3 years now. But now that channel has strayed far far away from the Winamp Forums scene. The "founder" is an ex-mod of these forums, some of you may know him, some may not, but now he's taking it upon himself to literally throw out some of the longstanding and better members of that chatroom, along with that he clearly does not give a shit about the forums and its members, along with about 2 or 3 other ex-winamp forums members flaming other members and making them feel not welcome, is that what a winamp forums-related channel should be about?

I didnt think so either.

So, for that reason Me and a few other members went off and created a new channel, for you, the members of the winamp forums.

For now, the channel will reside on ****, until we find a new home for the channel. Regular respectable members of ******* that still care about the forums are welcome, as well as any newcomers, and thats the way its supposed to be.

So, this is a formal invitation for you, the Winamp Forums regulars, to come join us in #winamp.

#winamp (Mirc)

#winamp (Java)

or if you use another IRC client just point it to irc.****.org and join #winamp

hope to see you there

Well in order to maintain peace in the channel, there were certain "*******ters" who have been akicked from the channel.

All of whom are ex-winamp forumers anyways.

no, arse and weedsatan can come if they want, if you have a problem with them use /ignore, if don't like using ignore then you'll just have to grin and bear it then

Mostly I would like some of the newer forums members to join.

Ive been seeing a lot of new faces here lately, unfamiliar ones, that are making this forum worth coming to again.

#******* was never a forums chat. It was a place for fans of AVS and part of bt's website.

How will this new place differ from #*******? It won't, unless you manage to get lots of new people from the forums in there. Well done for creating a forums chat anyway

Just note that #******* is not limited access. No forum member is banned. No one was driven out, they left by choice.

As for the Incubus_chick thing, she kept banning, kicking and de-oppping people she didn't like. You can't go doing that in a chat room open for all visitors. Forget peoples modes and just chat will you. Anyway she's always welcome there.



ahahahahaha. 'assholes' banned yet the channel is operated by the biggest fucking retard on these forums. Hilarious

i believe now is the time i should make my feelings clear:

I like bizz and seer (the two people who greeted me in #winamp). and how could i not like IC?

BUT, i like the way matt runs #*******, if anyone had a problem, all they needed to do was say something and it would be fixed. I liked the whole "you are an op unless we decide we don't like you" ideals of the past #*******. #******* was good and pure. the flooding was good, the staff few. now it all seems to have changed, and i don't think #winamp will help, due to the time it was founded (think communisim, it'll work under the right circumstances).

ok, so i'm still trying to understand what's going on...

your old channel was evil and corrupt, with the leader making stupid rules, etc. etc. and trying to kick people out.

so you're going to make a new channel, where you'll make everything better by making new stupid rules and trying to kick different people out?

if your beef with #******* is rules a and b, why start a new place and use rule a and rule b once again? wouldn't it be better to allow ANYONE in, even if you don't necessarily like them or get along with them? that would certainly give you a little bit of an edge with the moral high ground.

I trust Matt and his judgement...he has done a better job than what I ever did....simple reason...I let alot of people off with things and if anything...Matt made ******* alot better for control

I'd like to welcome the #winamp room as you will find out how tough it is to run it and to keep members there and not having a idle room

But never the less ...******* has been around for years..and will forever be imfamous for good times bad times and naughtlyness

******* has changed...yes and know...its a chatroom and for it to live it has to change .change is sometimes goood and can be bad but we still have some great users there and I hope they enjoy there stay

I've known alot of you for a long time...and whatever happens...I don't want to fall out with any of you guys and girls

This thread was stickeyd so that the people who have never knew about a forums-based IRC channel can know about it.

I never had anything against *******, I still dont, I just dont like some of the members that go there. But how can a channel that was once filled with only forums members not have anything to do with the forums? ******* had something to do with the forums obviously at one point, but now it doesnt, its just filled with bitchy ex-members that hate it here and idlers from the **** staff, as well as useless drama bullshit that almost always ends up in some longstanding member(s) leaving.

Quote:

Well think of it this way, 2 years ago when I started coming to ******* there was maybe only 20 or so members and the chatroom would be empty by about midnight my time. Well right now thats the case, but the chat room is hardly ever idle until after midnight when the members from over here in the states are sleeping.

Which brings it back to the point in why this thread was stickeyed. We're trying to get some new members in there, for this chatroom was made for them. I dont want this chatroom to be another "branch-off" of ******* like the attempts in the past once made it.

I thank #******* for making me discover IRC in the first place. I visit it regularily, but I being a foreigner makes me not undertand all these hostilities and harsh going on there.

I thought everything was fine.

What happened with Matt and IC? i thought they were friends.
What happened with Bizz and the others?

who are they?
when i first came there i felt welcome from the very first moment.

please, don't tell me i am offtopic. i would be offtopic if the firsp post was along the lines of "hey, there's a new chanell called #winamp", but it was not.

i welcome the newborn channel anyways, welcome #winamp.

the only people i have ackicked/banned are people who would be a known hazard to the fun enviroment i am going for in #winamp. and i trust my s/a/hop's to not abuse their power and to ban responsibly, and would never ban someone simply because they dont like them.

funny how i am so kind as to leave matt un-akicked and he repays me with a nice little flame. gotta love that matt.

Ahem...most of us are teenagers and college students!

Also I would like to make an opinion that its a fluke that I'm in 6 spinoff channels that are associated with #*******, the Winamp Forums, and one that is from another bulletin board.

I'm glad we are separating the flavors of the Winamp Forums into different channels.

Winamp3 Skins and Scripting - same as stated
WinampTech - Winamp2/3 Technical Support
Skinlove - General skinning
******* - General chat
Winamp - General chat

Of the two that are similar, there are differences between both sides of how things are run
