    So for instead of IRC I propose to use Discord (https://discordapp.com/)
    Im create Openapoc Channel there and create link for joining in chat in browser
    https://discord.gg/0nS950g1oltQvtll
    or exist link on channel https://discordapp.com/channels/142798944970211328/142798944970211328

    Here are the advantages:
    - You do not need any client (if you dont want) (The chat channel can be opened in browser)
    - The application can be installed on windose, Linux (soon), Android, Mac, IOS
    - in userlist shows in what game currently person play (This will help to find more themes for communication))
    - In channel be able to enter every person via the link (iwn if person dont registered or login)
    - Discord have multi role group system (for exemple i can be designer, translator, moderator)
    - Voice chat that does not slow down your game
    - The application will soon have an overlay for games
    - No need hosts any web or other stf
    - Application young and booming
    - The application is very simple and has all the required settings


    And next is coming soon:

    In-Game Overlays
    See who's talking, adjust voice controls, receive and respond to discord text messages; all without leaving the game.
    Game Integrations
    Connect your game account to Discord, sync your guild roster, etc.
    Discord API
    Truly make Discord your own. Create your own plug-ins for Discord using our API.
    Bots
    Set up bots to auto-post content in channels from Twitter, database sites, etc.
    Slash Commands
    Easily post game results, dps meters, and more in your text channels with simple commands.
    Two Factor Auth
    An optional added layout of account security that requires authentication on your phone.
    1:1 Voice Calls
    Directly call other Discord users without setting up or joining a channel.
    Premium Theme Packs
    Customize Discord with premium bling like skins, sticker packs, and sound packs.

    This was one short-lived channel...
    If anyone wants to reanimate it, I'll be there.

    I think the issue is that I *already* use IRC for other stuff, and have it available on pretty much every device, and idle in the background at work. Having a second service needs to be *much* better to be worth opening a second client...

    Understandable. I just wholly switched to Discord because Skype is no longer acceptable software (it's completely unpredictable, does whatever it wants, suddenly starts by itself in the middle of a day, takes up a lot of disk space without even asking, is slow as hell etc.), so I'm logged in to Discord most of the time anyway. And it is (at least for now) a pretty cool app, does everything I expect from a communicator.

    My only problem with IRC is that it doesn't retrieve history (you could do it peer-to-peer at least). This is painful for dev work since you may get your answer during off hours and you basically have to keep it running 24/7.

    Exactly this.
    IRC is fine, but just too simplistic to cover all my basic needs. Plus, it doesn't have VoIP.

    Yeah, IRC is *dead* simple, but you can build off it. Using a bouncer or something that keeps logs is pretty cool.

    I log everything y'all say, just for blackmail purposes :)

    Ah, so that's what you're all saying about me... and I thought you were my friends ;)

    Anyway, if there's a desire to move the forum, there's a feature that let's me download the forum data (and I assume there's a restore function somewhere, but I can't find it)

    I thought you people were logging IRC the way OXC does it?
