Dan, I've corrected the version number of this upcoming update. It will be known as The Hotfix 4.0, as we've already been at TheHotfix.net v2.0. It would be kind of weird to regress...

Oh I'd just like to add, the new theme performs best on 2D accelerated browsers such as IE9 (Beta), Firefox 4 (Beta) and Chrome 7 :)

Welcome Mike!

Just wondering, how did we jump from 2.0 to 4.0? :P

I had an IRC channel registered at one time.

I suppose I can register one for us on the IRC network I ususally lurk on. Coldfront.

Update: Just registed a channel now actually.

IRC Network: R-TypeNet (irc.edkoindustries.com) (SSL Port: 6697)

Channel: #thehotfix

I'm the only one lurking in there right now. I'll bring in my IRC bot when I finish the overhaul I'm doing on her (yes I consider my bot a girl because of her nickname).

Integrate IRC Chat with an IPB Forum

Our THF usernames/password from the site database could be used to authenticate us into the IRC channel, and it would prevent anonymous users from flooding it.

While that is possible, I don't recommend it to be honest because people can then gain access to your IRC nick and be an imposter of you and get you in trouble. That is, if you use the same password for IRC and THF.

Also, I already have an IRC app in mind for the forums if we get one.

The app looks good.

But what's to stop me from let's say, registering the nickname of a less active THF member in chanserv and putting that member in trouble?

The host masks. If the host mask doesn't look right and it matches, or is very similar to another persons, then we'll know something is up.

Also, it's nickserv that registers nick names and deals with people. Chanserv is the service that registers channels.
