Jaxboards now has an IRC server! I'm thinking critically about possible ways to integrate the IRC server with each board, but for now at least there's a place for everyone to join and chat. I will be working more on this over the next few days to see if I can't get user account integration with Jaxboards and an automatic channel created for each board.

Point your IRC client at jaxboards.com and head on over to #support to help us test everything out. Thanks for your continued support!

3 AM update: Services are now working. Woo!

Sound neat, I guess, but what's the point when we already have a shoutbox?
Course clear! You got a card.

He's planning shoutbox integration too if possible. If he can get an IRC server up and running that's fairly integrated into JaxBoards I'd say that's a neat benefit for the service.

Since I had to disable the auto-refreshing for mobile users, having an IRC server integrated with the shoutbox would at least give them a chance to instant-chat with whatever community they're in without having to refresh over and over.

Plus, I have some board owners that would prefer NOT to have the shoutbox on the forum, because it discourages posting - but would still like a place for everyone to get together and a chatroom-like environment.

you could always do +i on the room or whatever and no one would be able to access it from outside the forum

i don't think sean would make the irc components mandatory anyway though

I could understand why you might not want a shoutbox on your forum, since it can discourage people from making topics, but why wouldn't an IRC have the exact same problem a shoutbox would?

What I'm basically saying is that I don't want an IRC on my forum, and that there are more pressing things to deal with, in my humble opinion.

Yep. It took about 1 hour to install and set the IRC server up, so no real loss there. It was just a feature that I've had a few requests for, and it didn't take long at all to set up.
