    Hello, first off let me begin this post by announcing the new Site Feedback board! You can post your thoughts about the site and any complaints you may have about this site here.

    Now then, for the first topic of the board, there has been some debates about the current Brawl Minus Xat client, and requests have been placed to go back to IRC (internet relay chat), which is what we had before our url was moved from .tk to .net. I figured I should ask everyone what they would prefer to chat with, as well as state what each has to offer.

    Xat
    Pros:
    Our current chat client.
    Allows for Emoticons and Avatars
    Easy username registration that automatically logs you on each time you enter the chatroom
    makes an notification sound every time the chat has a new message

    cons:
    It can be really really really hard and annoying, if not sometimes impossible, to link things in Xat
    I believe it runs on shockwave, which eats up RAM
    Makes a notification sound every time the chat has a new message

    IRC
    Pros:
    Easy to use and simple interface
    Allows for useful userscripts (like typing out "/friendcode Pin" would return "4043-2694-0776")
    Can have multiple IRC channels open, and IRC is a wider used platform than Xat

    Cons:
    You'd have to check the client manually for new messages
    You'll have to resigster your nickname and log on every time you enter the chat

    So, which chat client do you think would be a better platform for the Brawl Minus community to chat with? You decide!

    I voted Xat. Our community isn't large enough to warrant an IRC at the moment. And having the sound for a message notification isn't a con at all. If it is you can just mute your computer or turn off the sounds IN the xat. It's more accessible and seems easier to manage as well.

    Xat doesn't work on my ipad, but Skype does. I can use Xat, but it's annoying if I'm not playing in the same room as my computer, which is usually occupied.

    Also. Skype is the best option IMO. Easy interface and easy to find people as long as your name isn't generic.... I made that mistake :D

    It's the model 1 Kindle Fire -- not the HD model, which does support Skype.

    I actually can't use Skype, as I have no multimedia devices. And Skype takes so long to load on my computer anyway.

    I have Skype on my phone, just not on my desktop.
    I also couldn't get Xat to work on my phone (which is a shame, considering I have the S5 and it used to work on my S1..). But, my desktop is like right next to my TV, so I just swing the chair between the two. :p

    I vote for Xat, since we've been using it the longest. :D
    (unless we switch to Skype.)
