I’ve created a Monkey 2 IRC room over @ freenode.net #monkey2
You can quickly join via: http://webchat.freenode.net?randomnick=1&channels=%23monkey2
I suggest using a proper IRC client of some sort, like XChat, mIRC or if you’re on Windows 10 – xoChat
UPDATE: Or you can use Ted2Go!
Come hang out, talk, share your work, or just idle! 🙂
And say hello when you join, that way we know you’ve joined! (Since IRC is all about idling heh)May 27, 2017 at 3:31 am #8291May 27, 2017 at 3:35 am #8292
Is kvIRC still going? heh
I remember using that many MANY years ago. 🙂July 25, 2017 at 6:08 pm #9506
The newest version of Ted2Go (from the Dev branch) now has its own Irc client built into it!
And it connects to the Irc room I’ve mentioned in the first post
Just click the “Chat” tab at the console, select the name you want and hit “Connect”
You can also jump into Ted2Go preferences and set it to auto-connect at start
It’ll notify you when someone’s speaking by placing a whit dot next to the Chat tab
And a red dot when someone mentions your nameJuly 28, 2017 at 12:59 am #9566
I’m there as Vidiot_X. Linux and IRC go together like peanut butter and jelly. 😀 Ted2GO rocks!July 28, 2017 at 1:20 am #9567
Hehe, we’re glad to have you!
You and Mark are the regulars. 🙂
The even newer Ted2Go has much better IRC colours now too!
The next change, which Nero hasn’t accepted yet, are better notifications.
You can get it from my Ted2Go fork though.September 2, 2017 at 12:38 pm #10208
ted2go should auto join people into that channel, make it something people need to turn off, not something they need to turn on, I know that might be a bit controversial but I think it would be best to get people into it otherwise hardly anyone is going to bother with it.September 2, 2017 at 2:16 pm #10211
This is something you’ll have to bring up at over in the Ted2Go thread:

Why not making a Discord?January 12, 2018 at 6:54 am #12828
There’s usually some people here:January 14, 2018 at 5:36 pm #12861
Why not making a Discord?
you have to register an account on discord and the application is very heavy on your system and uses a lot of internet on your phone
its also a locked system so you cannot make your own clients for it or integrate it into ted
its also very bad for sharing code because it replaces code with emoticons and other things
irc is easy to make your own client and works on older machines even amiga and atari!
a good irc client can look and act just like discord if you wanted it to and even be made in monkey 2
the only thing irc cannot do is voice chat but its not impossible to integrate that but monkey 2 does not handle microphones right nowJanuary 16, 2018 at 11:02 am #12884
#teamdiscord 😛January 16, 2018 at 11:07 am #12885
yes mark seems to have chosen discord
its a shame because discord will probably eventually cost money since nothing is actually free
its also a shame because there is no way to implement discord into ted2go like hezkore has done with his irc client and its a very unique feature to advertise with!
“get live help right inside of your ide”
irc also is able to embed into homepages so irc could also work on the monkey 2 homepage
i do not like to register accounts on things so i guess i will not be joining everyone on discordJanuary 16, 2018 at 11:40 am #12887
To me it’s compatible. IRC is more a instant chat and Discord is a kind of delayed one. I don’t try to get an IRC history for example.January 16, 2018 at 11:44 am #12888
you can get chat history on irc it all depends on the client and how it works
if its the client type that stays on while youre away you get history forever
irccloud is a good example
or you can set up your own with znc or quassel irc
i believe hezkore was working on chat history for the default ted2 irc client using his own logging system
the good thing with irc is that you can very easy make your own client its totally open so you can make it work any way you want
