another starting channel
« on: April 14, 2007, 08:11:50 AM »
This is not actualyl a wish for me, but it might help people new to irc.

I got this idea that you could add another starting channel besides #icechat like #beginner. There isn't a lot of chatting going on in #icechat, and people new to irc might abandon the whole idea right away because no one is talking. I don't know if #beginer is a lot more active, but it might help new people get into irc.

Well, I would need permission from the channel owners, and they would have to deal with all the problems of newb's and such. I am sure its a lot more hassle then its worth. And some channels are quite strict, and could get quite upset if they start getting a large flow of users, that will start saying join 2on2, etc, because that happens a lot in #icechat.
Its best to leave it the way it is, imo.
