Default IRC channel has moved

Update:
As regular IRC users will know, we have had a free changes related to the channel recently. At the original time, WyldRyde, the original network the channel was on, was down for about a day. Afterwards, several messages (1, 2, 3) were posted on twitter, interpretation of these at the time and discussion with owners of other channels on WyldRyde made it seem that they would be closing to channels other than those for the owners' websites and software. Based on this information, we moved the channel to GeekShed, another IRC network.

Wyldryde have now posted an update on the future of their network: http://www.wyldryde.org/2011/11/future-of-wyldryde/
In short, previously founded channels can remain but there will be no new ones. While ToS' channel is still registered along with various other meta-channels (although many of those are jokes and/or unused), it means that any new channels, including personal ones, will not be possible. In addition, while most unrelated channels have now left, the downsizing of the network does create potential stability issues depending on the level remaining, as well as the consideration that the owners will not be focusing on it as a public network so very little support could be expected - existing channels are merely being grandfathered in, so to speak.

Currently, both IRC channels remain open, aith the majority of actual activity happening on GeekShed, but we need to make a permanent decision one way. This is not a decision to make easily, so we are giving users an opportunity to be considered in the decision for the IRC channel's permanent home. Obviously, this poll is only of any real interest to IRC users, and there is no requirement to vote.




Original post below:

ToS' IRC channel has now moved to GeekShed.

irc.geekshed.net #TreeOfSouls

Mibbit users, the same as before, but select GeekShed for network.
Web client users, you don't need to do anything as the web client will be updated.

This should currently be considered a trial of the new location, but what is for certain is that we will soon be unable to keep the channel on WyldRyde.

I'm not going to publicly give my opinion on it, but it seems wyldryde will soon not be supporting channels for outside communities - we are not the only site to be moving our channel today. Thanks for your patience with the recent IRC disruption.

Edit: Just to clarify, we do not have a choice in this. We will soon be unable to keep our channel on wyldryde, so this move is necessary to have a channel - it was decided to do it now to give everyone a chance to move. That said, if anyone does have any feedback on this, please post it here and we will consider it to the greatest extent we can.

A few people have raised issues with the move - again, sadly, we will not be able to remain on WyldRyde - that said, if anyone has any comments or suggestions, please post them here. For now, consider this move temporary until a full decision is made.

Edit: This post was made before the details of wyldryde's changes were made public and no longer strictly applies.

I don't see a huge problem in this at all. Now that I know where the new channel is, I can just make adjustments to my clients and go on about things.

Looks like #TreeOfSouls will be grandfathered in: WyldRyde IRC Network - The Future of WyldRyde

well, i dont really see it as problem if we stay at wyldryde or move - as long as people are able to join the tos channel, it really does not matter

But what would really be cool - to put up an own irc server here

At the time, we didn't know what was going to happen. This is why now, we need to decide.

-Wyldryde will not be allowing any new channel registrations.
-Wyldryde will be reducing capacity in the future, which may affect stability.

However, we're fine with running the channel in either location - people need to decide where is preferable. If necessary we can add a poll here.

I don't care which network. But this needs to get resolved because right now everyone's spread across 3 servers.

Yeah, I think either works. We just need to pick one.

I agree with what most of the others have said...as long as people can still connect, what is the big deal if we switch networks? Glad I saw this or I would have gone to connect to WyldRyde and been all WTF??? Lol
