Title: News: IRC chat with NWN winners - 20th September
Post by: BenWH on September 03, 2008, 06:36:42 AM
Hello all.  We at the AME are planning on a GDA winner IRC chat on Saturday September 20 for the NWN1 Award Winners.  The chat will be at 9am Pacific Time (GMT -7).  Anyone is invited, but we will be showcasing the winners of the 2007 Golden Dragon Awards for NWN2.  The chat will be on live.neverwinterconnections.com in #AME. 

We look forward to seeing you there!

As with all AME chats we look forward to receiving questions from the community at large for what have proved to be lively and fun events. If you have a question for any of the winners (or for AME), just post it here.


Here's the connection info:
Server: live.neverwinterconnections.com
Public Room: #AME

use any IRC Client, join the server live.neverwinterconnections.com

Steps to get into the IRC channel:
1) Download mIRC (or HydraIRC which I use)
2) Go to options, then connect, then server
3) click add, fill in Description and Group as AME, and server as live.neverwinterconnections.com
4) Log onto server, then join channel ame

To log in from the general window, type /j ame

Ben,

Did one of us get the dates for the NWN1 and NWN2 chats switched? I thought we had arranged the NWN1 Chat for the 13th, and the NWN2 Chat for the 20th. That's how I have it on my calendar.

Important announcement.   

The switching of dates will stand.  I got the dates mixed up and it's too late to change them now.  I didn't notice unitl it was too late. 

Sorry if this created any confusion.  It's my fault.

Yes, according to Tybae's post. He organized the chats so it's his call. (The discussion thread with the proposed dates on the AME private forums had them the other way around, so some of our membership got different information than what I assume was worked out with the invitees.)

Yes, Maddyanne.

Andarian - You assume correctly.

Wouldn't it be great if we had a "chat" button on this forum, like the tabs on top for search and stuff.
I've seen it on other forums.

Just a thought.

That suggestion has been made before.  I don't know what it would take to put a shoutbox on our site, but it would be kinda neat.  The only disadvantage is that it only holds so many lines before it goes to the archives and the logs are difficult to read.  I would be in favor of adding one here, but it wouldn't work for an IRC chat like we have had in the past.

I don't think IRC existed soooo long ago. We didn't even have CDs back then....

EDIT: OK, it looks like I can make it for the 20th. I wasn't sure before due to the switching of dates.

Good news, Andarian.  It wouldn't be the same without you.

Well, technically, it's Eastern Daylight Time, but who's counting. ;)  12 noon will be the time for all you East Coasters.

Hi Guys,

I must offer you my sincere apologies .... I suddenly realised five minutes ago that I missed the IRC chat. :(

Really sorry about that. I had every good intention to be there, and then I got tied up in something and it went straight out of my head.

Let me know if you intend to do another and I will try to make a big poster to remind myself.

Lance.

No worries Lance.  I guess you'll just have to win another award and be at the next one.  ;)

Hi Ty,

Thanks for that. I'm still annoyed at myself for missing it though. :(

I managed to join the AME channel shortly after that post and spoke to a few who were still around. That was fun. :)

Take care,

Lance.
