And this is why the echoes are dead.
Are you saying that IRC is discouraging posting to the
echoes? I dunno.. perhaps IRC satisfies the appeal of being
"live" online with other people. There is nothing that
precludes those same people (or others) to post in the echos
in the meantime.
Possibly. In the world of instant gratification that the
internet has provided us, why bother posting and waiting
possibly days for 1 or 2 relies, or maybe none at all? Just
hope on IRC, talk real time, idle in a channel and catch up
with the chat later.
How are IRC folks here accessing IRC? Is it via smartphones/
I use mIRC and I'm only in the #synchronet channel in
irc.synchro.net though I use other networks for other
purposes...like instant gratification :)
Maybe Micronet could experiment with a Telegram presence
(linking up an echo or two) as an adjunct to IRC? ;) The
result would entertain the live aspect of IRC yet still
retain the standard messaging experience too.
Lord no. Still, if I said "make them do it the old fashioned
way" I'd be told to pull out my modem and dial up to a BBS
rather than posting via an nntp usenet client :)
