Skype the new IRC
10:53:54 May 16th 10 - Mr. Doctor:

Well since Skype has made IRC obsolete, I have made a 'public group chat thingy' for all to join!

10:59:35 May 16th 10 - Mr. Zero:

>.>..... IRC obsolete? what blasphemy is this? :P please put down your hand so i may cut it from your body! :P IRC is still alive! :P Skype sucks :P >.< muahahha

11:08:26 May 16th 10 - Mr. Yawn:

skype is a clusterfuck for text chat and when i joined 2 other VU replated groups nobody was talking. What's the point of using skype if you won't use it to talk.

11:17:07 May 16th 10 - Psychotic Scientist:

Skype is useless, not everyone wants to talk and to use it for text chat when you have IRC, which alot of vets are on and are always available for tips and advice, seems pointless......
IRC is and always will be VUs best chat option......

12:46:25 May 16th 10 - Mr. Osiris:

agreed i dont want to sit at my comp with a mic on talkling all day when i can do other things and just type occasionally :P

12:59:01 May 16th 10 - Mr. Doctor:

Lol, Skype group chat is exactly like IRC HOWEVER you do not have to be online. When you get online, all stuff that was said before gets send.

You can make channels, op, deop, kick, voice all IRC can do but you dont have to be online and idle 24/7

And no, I dont talk to pple on skype, I chat!

12:59:18 May 16th 10 - Mr. Doctor:

ps. All 'vets' I know are on skype...

13:08:08 May 16th 10 - Mr. Heroix:

Yeah. That some former legacy members uses IRC doesn't mean that ALL vets does.

13:14:26 May 16th 10 - Mr. Osiris:

no it doesnt but the vast majority of what i consider Vets do. depends who you think are vet :)

13:17:26 May 16th 10 - Mr. Osiris:

can you "mute" the chat? i dont want to be playing a game and hear random people talking in the background :D

13:20:48 May 16th 10 - Mr. Dargoth:

The vets I know all chat here:

13:48:07 May 16th 10 - Clown Penguin Idontgiveasharp:

you can make the status of skype " do not disturb" so there wont be any sounds from skype, or popping windows. If you are in conference(talking) you can mute, or just drop out. when you will get back, they can add you back to talking. 
Skype is way better

16:31:41 May 16th 10 - Mr. Doctor:

And by talking you dont mean produce sounds, you just chat with 30 pple...

16:41:16 May 16th 10 - Lady Katie Holmes:

07:17:26 May 16th 10 - Mr. Osiris:

can you "mute" the chat? i dont want to be playing a game and hear random people talking in the background :D

Well, yes to your question, but also the chats mostly done unless people are really bored is just text, no voice, 2/3rds or more of the people in the chats do not even have mics

20:15:17 May 16th 10 - Mr. Hema Fanboy:

All scrubs who think playing 10 eras constitutes them as vets use Skype.

Good players use IRC.

20:35:27 May 16th 10 - Mr. Hema Fanboy:

Come to think about it, the problem scrubs tend to find with IRC is that it requires thought to set up.

A lot of the new people [non-vets] are stupid. Therefore, stupid people have a hard time understanding how set up server details, join channels, make their own etc.

It's a bit like Darwin's work. Survival of the fittest. The fit, able and intelligent species work out how to use IRC. The stupid mongrels use Skype. And die.

18:59:48 May 17th 10 - Mr. Doctor:

Ok, right now:

#VU on IRC: 

+Osiris +Thomaas +Mac ~Swifty Stirlin Ixis path Scientist +Salamon +onslaught +onslaught_almighty @Ez +roxbury +Cobra 

Ok, right now on skype: 30 VU pple online, all good and experienced players in my list. So go drop dead somewhere will you swifty!

19:08:23 May 17th 10 - Mr. Ois:

wheres your list?

19:08:47 May 17th 10 - Mr. Ois:

and yeah there are many more people in the kd chans on irc :P and its 14 ppl atm :/

19:19:14 May 17th 10 - Mr. Lollylops:

As I already said. It's survival of the fittest. The strongest, smartest invidiuals work out how to use IRC.

Those who are too stupid to work out how to configurate IRC use the ingame chat, MSN, Skype and all those other simpleton programs.

 Good, intelligent players use IRC. Enjoy your scrubs.

19:30:25 May 17th 10 - Mr. Heroix:

It is nothing about intelligence. There are only a few kids in VU who may not configure that your IRC. If you are telling that you are one of  "The strongest, smartest invidiuals" only because you configured your IRC - I am sorry for you. You are not smarter at all - you're using uncomfortable program and think that those who are using new technology are dumb? For example: Do you also think that those who takes medicine when they are ill, instead of making religious ritual (as good old days) are stupid?

Skype is newer more efficient and much more comfortable messenger. Also for many people messenger is not only for games. I personally prefer Skype, because all of my contacts and friends uses it. So why should I have second messenger eating my computer memory just for VU?

19:55:20 May 17th 10 - Mr. Lollylops:

22:27:51 May 17th 10 - Mr. Ois:

if you need to worry about something like irc "eating" your comp memory then you need a new comp ^^

07:40:32 May 18th 10 - Mr. Heroix:

Well I have pretty good comp, but that's not a main reason for me. I just hate having lots of programs running in background. I have minimal numbers of programs and I'd like to keep that.

09:11:01 May 18th 10 - Mr. Yawn:

lmao, IRC eating comp memory, either you're running on a 386 or you're a moron.

10:24:50 May 18th 10 - Duke Wraith Hearts Wwr:

Why make life harder on yourself?

Using IRC is like going to milk a goat so you can drink your tea.

11:48:47 May 18th 10 - Duchess Amon:

I have nothing against IRC tho I think its old fashioned. It reminds me of the days of pacman, and pacman isnt even there.

Ive been using skype for least 3 yrs now, where I live its used for many things,  Ive been using it at work, staying in touch with ppl far away, for gaming etc.

Skype is easy operational, what I like about skype is the sbility to read through the chats if u actually want.

yes its possible to spam the chats on skype, but its also an alternative for any alliance that wants to make one KD room just for posting and one where ppl can chat in same alliance. Having said that. Not many likes that much organisation anyway and wont use it.

this " omg ur so dumb cause u use IRC /skype" discussion is idiotic, skype takes more space on your computer, but has more features than IRC, You can have group calls, videocalls, play games, the multitxtbased chats that are used in alliances now, and pm's.
so in many ways like MSN. skype is slightly quicker tho imo

If u however wanna try it out there is options to make it lag lessunder the main frame window (tools/options/im-sms (advanced options) where u can choose how long u keep ur history for. u can also regulate this by only clearing certain chats by rightclicking them in the main window.)

If u want the sound away again, main frame window tools/options/sounds.

yea we might have killed of IRC but then again, some like black n white movies, some dont..  shit happens

that menu there is pretty useful. and as its been said there is possibility to set your online status from receiving new popping windows.
