Here's an idea... create an infobox template for channel pages. It could have fields for server, admin (or founder(s)), channel premise, rating (as in PG-13, XXX, etc), website... that sort of thing. And maybe a link to direct-connect to the channel, using an IRC:// browser link. Like . KaloFoxfire 01:45, 15 February 2006 (UTC)
irc channel pages
I was attempting to create a page for the #mifur channel, but # is a special character. What should the page name be?
- Counterpoint. Missed the day of furry BBSes, but when I got involved in internet furry fandom, and even thought I caught the tail end of it, IRC play a tremendous role of communication between furs of that time, along the furry newsgroups. Furnet channels, specially #furry, would host 100s of user connections, which help coordinate furry convention data, art exchanges, furry gossip, and just fandom information being exchanged in real time.
- The BBSes died, The newsgroups atrophied, and furry IRC use declined after the advent of the Burned furs debacle, and the split of Anthrochat from Furnet, but a recent visit to both servers still show quite a substantial use of the service, strangely enough, and many furry related groups and websites still have a presence there.
