    Hi Tempers

    Did you know that GBAtemp has its own easy to use irc chat network which you can connect to via your web browser or irc client of your choice? Join the official GBAtemp chatroom and its relaxed atmosphere for 24/7 discussions ranging from the latest in hacking and gaming news to random silliness and any other subject you can imagine in between.

    Need somewhere to livechat with other members of the forum for any 3ds wifi based events or something similar you may be organizing? Want to have a specific channel just for a specific game or subject people can join and discuss with you? Join irc and we can help you quickly set up a private chatroom that you and others can easily join in seconds.

    So feel free to join our relaxed little community via your favorite IRC client using the address irc.gbatemp.net (default port 6667). And our main channel is as always #gbatemp.net

    You can also join us directly via your browser using :arrow: this link.


    Enjoy! :gun:

    There's also an Animal Crossing channel (#animalcrossing) where you can set up trades, visit other peoples' towns, or just talk about the game in general.

    Yeah! we need more people to log in and leave IRC minimized, forgetting about it until 4 hours later.

    To be fair, I have had some fun times on the IRC with the regulars recently. It's a nice chatroom and the silliness is rather amusing at times.

    I'd like it to be at least a little larger, though and hopefully, you would be able to make that happen.

    Believe me, that's been my wish for a couple years. And not just mine - many share it. The problem is, the guy who could do it probably won't do it. :(

    But it won't become larger unless more people join, like yourself. There's no reason to not just idle in the chat, whether it's keeping a separate tab opening, or getting a proper client, like most people use.

    If you want a free IRC client, check out these ones:

    I'm known as Humza on there, so you might not recognise me. Thanks for the suggestions, though, and for anyone overwhelmed with how to set a client up, Mibbit is also a great browser-based IRC client that helps make things much simpler.
