Talk:Chocolate-doom (IRC channel)


Mewse isn't on the channel anymore[edit]

Hm ... Even though it's "only" an IRC channel, I am not a huge fan of throwing information away just because it's not current. Just because something once was fact doesn't mean it should be forgotten. I mean, we're retrogamers, aren't we? :)

Would it be acceptable to list the current moderators and then list "previous moderators" or something to that effect? Zack 01:23, 13 January 2008 (UTC)

The current and former channel regulars are now both listed in the article. I'm not entirely sure what you mean by your moderators-related comment though. There are only a few moderators (which are actually called channel operators in IRC terms) on the channel, but I guess we could mention who they are/were in the article. If that's what you mean. -- Janizdreg 06:24, 13 January 2008 (UTC)
On second glance at the page I realize I misunderstood the list entirely. I thought it was a list of ops. I feel that current and former channel ops would be suitable content for the article. Listing regulars is pretty insignificant, especially when you consider how often someone might become a regular or not. For example I certainly wouldn't want to see a list of all Doomworld forum regulars in the corresponding article. Zack 23:37, 13 January 2008 (UTC)
I've personally never been a fan of having "channel regular" or "moderator" lists in the IRC channel articles anyway. Fraggle 16:14, 13 January 2008 (UTC)

Nominating for deletion[edit]

This channel has been dead a long time and at least one search engine appears to be still recommending it based on the existence of this page. Fraggle (talk) 10:57, 12 December 2023 (CST)

I dunno, while I'm not familiar with the channel, there is info in this article that may be worth preserving. Perhaps just update it to note it's gone, as has been done with e.g. DMClub (IRC channel)? --Xymph (talk) 03:52, 3 January 2024 (CST)
I agree with Xymph. The channel is dead but that doesn't mean it's existence needs to be stricken from the record. Updating the page to reflect the status of the channel would be more appropriate in my opinion. --Gregor (talk) 19:24, 3 January 2024 (CST)
