Coming soon: MobileRead Chat - Testers wanted!

We are soon ready to launch a new chat system. It will replace our little shoutbox, which has never been of much practical use.

A few facts about the new system:
  • It's based on the popular IRC protocol.
  • Nickname registration, chat channel registration, and other services are available.
  • Forum integration: Your forum name will be automatically reserved as your nickname.
  • Host cloaking: To protect your privacy, your IP address or hostname will be "cloaked" behind a pretty mobileread.com address.
  • Webchat is available. It communicates through secure layers with the chat server. Any other IRC client works too.

We are now looking for a handful of testers. The only requirement is that you are an active MobileRead member and that you are familiar with IRC.

If you are interested, please send me a quick PM.

This sounds nice, though it's been a while since I used IRC. Still, it's good to see it still being used instead of web-only site specific stuff

I like XChat, and I cannot lie.

I would like to add that webchat is an EXCELLENT product:
for those requiring it's firewall circumvention abilities and also not wishing to install a local client / On the go.

many instances where it would be great.

For me though a slightly more complete solution was a better fit.

Thanks MobileRead!

I also added a screenie that shows how to setup an alternate default channel and auto-login password location (when you have your password)

Added some screenies of the various channels and Xchat.

Code:
    _____        ___.   .__.__        __________                   .___
   /     \   ____\_ |__ |__|  |   ____\______   \ ____ _____     __| _/

I mostly use mibbit... Every time I finally decide to install a client, I re-install my PC soon after.

And we just tested that the Windows XP build of XChat works here.

Agreed. Given a real box under my fingertips, I prefer Xchat over everything else too.

The server also supports SASL logins which is directly supported by some clients and via scripts for others so you don't need the nickserv scripts.
