    What do you guys think about starting an IRC channel for this subforum of civ v, it would be a cool place to hang out and be able to ask and answer questions and discuss in real time.

    As there was some positive responses to the idea of an IRC channel where you can hang out, ask, answer and dicuss questions related to civ v strategy in real time, here is the new channel:

    Network: IRCnet
    Channel: #civfanatics

    Hope to see you there.

    Mods can delete old thread.

    Well I found the website. Tried to connect several times. Timed out after 60 seconds each time.

    Someone please let me know if this is worth the effort.

    For everyone having problems, this is a fast an easy way:

    Download Hexchat, this is your IRC client

    Open Hexchat and simply select network ICRnet and your username
    After connecting you to the server you can type the command /j #civfanatics and you should be connected to the channel.

    For Mac users, do the same steps above but with Colloquy.

    Klaskeren, you should correct your line to read "select network IRCnet and your username"
