If you're able to implement it, then I'll be all for it.
just go to https://kiwiirc.com/embedding
generate the iframe and add to html

I'm thinking a nice implementation could look like the old shoutbox but simply connect to an IRC server on our side. Users looking to connect from an external client would use their obsrv credentials.

AliTheZombie, what do you think?
I never used IRC, so I don't know how it works.
I did suggest making another Shoutbox back when the old one started to fail, but fog told me he was already making a new one himself, but that never got out of paper.
I was going to use a modern protocol called WebSockets and PHP to make a shoutbox that wasn't dependent on MySQL and was going to make it a hell lot faster, but if IRC can be lighter than that, I'm all for it.

A lot of people, specially our vast younger audience, wouldn't know how to use IRC, myself included. Would this be a good idea after making everyone move to Discord?

Also, have you guys found a way to implement iframe widgets here yet? Last I tested, phpbb doesn't exactly accept it, so this issue applies to both discord and irc forum implementations...

Alinho's idea of a newer, faster and totally responsive shoutbox looks way more appealing than IRC imo.

However, shouldn't we give it a little time before making rash decisions? Time for people to settle in. Jumping from one chat software to another in such short time would certainly crush credibility.

And then, only then, maybe make a poll to let the majority decide which chat option is better suited for them to communicate with their fellow OBSRV members before deleting yet another place and telling everyone to move somewhere else?

IRC it is, thanks Leo!

But to be serious, we'll let Alinho come up with a new shoutbox and then ask people which they'd prefer.

Also, to address your concern, we weren't ever thinking about adopting a solution that requires users to learn a new chat protocol. The idea was to use IRC as a backend, which wouldn't be relevant to the user at all, and would be relevant only for the person implementing the shoutbox. For users, the shoutbox would look and function exactly the same, save for actually working quickly and being more modern. IRC just has the *added* advantage of being a protocol that's been so widely documented and used, that if you *wanted,* you could use our server from anywhere and any device. This conversation is pretty much moot anyway, since Alinho wants to just build something from scratch and use a different kind of backend.

I dont want to use that spyware... I mean discord... We need a solution that does not involve that... Playing with NO chat is a big turn off...
