I just wanted to post a reminder to all members that we have an IRC Channel for the SSX
In the last week or so I've noticed our numbers have begun to dwindle a bit for whatever reason (summer holidays have been suggested to me, which is a distinct possibility, but I thought I would make this post regardless), which is worrying to me as I see IRC as a valuable communications tool between members - helping keep friends and the community as a whole together in times where we perhaps aren't as active as we once used to be.
With the distinct lack of new MMOs whetting our interest, and/or multiplayer games for us to rally around, I am fully aware that we as a group are in a lull at the moment and have been for quite some time now. However, I am also aware that a number of us do have our eyes on future games, MMO or otherwise, around which we hope to build a group or two - Star Wars The Old Republic and Star Trek Online being two such examples. However it is important to ensure that in the run up to the release of these, or other games that any of you may be anticipating or waiting for, we do not allow ourselves to drift apart. Friends are important in life, and this community is nothing if not a place for friends to come together, have fun together and stay in touch.
I've frequented IRC for a little under five years now and I make a point of being around whenever possible. It's a great place for a few of us to come together, chat, exchange opinions, be ganged up on in arguments over many subjects (or is that just me?), and generally have fun. Everyone is welcome, even if you're not playing with an existing group at present, and I would hope that some of you who haven't visited us will drop by sometime to say hello, and those of you who have and have drifted away will come back to catch up with we idlers
We have an IRC Guide to guide you through setting up an IRC client here: http://www.shatteredstar.org/ircguide.php
, or alternatively we provide a web based client for anyone to use (without having to fuss around setting up your own client) here: http://www.shatteredstar.org/chat/
I hope to see some more people joining us on IRC in the near future. Let's not allow ourselves to drift into infrequent-forum-communications-only mode when we have such a useful communications tool only a click away
