To help members connect more often on our website, we’ve added both a chat feature, and a shoutbox to the site. Both can be found on our chat page: http://go.starbase118.net/chat. The native chat panel connects to IRC, so you can connect from other ways beyond our website, like Trillian or mIRC. More information on the chat page. The shoutbox can also be found on the Members page, on the right-hand sidebar. The shoutbox is different than chat, as messages in the shoutbox remain even after you log off. Leave a message for other members around the fleet! We’re attempting to integrate the shoutbox into the forums, and will update here if we are successful.
