All too often I sit on game finder for more than 30 minutes offering games and having none accepted. Finally I get tired of it and go activate for some bash box.

I suggest a blast from the past. I suggest that those of us who feel like this is the case make a pledge to one another. A minor pledge that we will not only put teams on game finder, but that we will open IRC so that we can easily chat with one another and try to get games. I have looked in the chat room several times but daily traffic there is pitiful.

It is simple click on this link.
https://client01.chat.mibbit.com/?server=irc.fumbbl.com&channel=%23fumbbl

Bookmark it. Then pop it open before you put your teams on game finder.

If you would like to support this movement please signify your agreement below.

I plan to open a portion of my friend list and label it IRC so that I can know who has agreed to this and offer matches accordingly.

I keep joining FUMBBL channel when I'm drunk. When I'm sober, it's too depressing and I'm not high enough to talk to myself. It's a shame, really. IRC used to be such a cool place...

EDIT - I think the main problem is most of the new players don't join IRC. Most of them don't even know what it is. What about adding a "join IRC" badge to the site's header, linking to IRC help page?

I don't see what all the gloom is for? For example the #swl and #metabox channels are bigger than ever. And the circus that used to be put on in #fumbbl has moved on, and the clowns have now left.

Fumbbl on IRC is maybe better than it has been for 3-4 years.

Everyone that left can safely come back now (even the clowns, if they insist).

Nope, the main problem is that new people join it, no one talks at all, then they don't join again.

I use hexchat and am always in #metabox but let's be honest here - irc is a generation behind the times. It's great for us 30 somethings who have used it for 20 years but...

Also, name the channel #grieffinder

If the clowns came back you would be stuck with the same old problem.

There is maybe such a thing as too positive. Wink

OK. I'm looking at the chat log now.

A guy logs on. Asks a question.
He gets no immediate response and logs off again within 6 minutes.

I don't think young people have the patience for this kind of thing. Wink

Though I suppose in the old days he would at least have got an "RTFM" Wink

I'll try on my new device and let you know, maybe it was something wonky with my old laptop, some firewall ect.

And we are talking about Fumbbl community here, I don't really consider yall strangers.

For the record, the site is now linking to Mibbit rather than the very bad java irc applet:

https://fumbbl.com/chat.php

While this is functional, I very much recommend installing a proper IRC client. It can be a bit daunting to set one up initially, but once you get past that it's a much better experience.
