lmw has been growing more as of whoever knows, and imo the shoutbox is a shit way to communicate. for those who dont know, irc is basically texting but not shit and you can do it on any device that is connected to the internet and not ios. the issue of how there is no backlog of irc unlike shoutbox can be solved because of a friend of mine who has a logging thing on a dedicated server, so you can read the backlog shit there. if you have questions about irc or whatever post them here.
I used to moderate an irc with my own bot that recorded everything ages ago, so I know of its merits and that creating a log is more than possible. However, shoutbox seems to be doing just fine for what we use it for. Any particular reason why IRC would be a more worthwhile chat method?
