Chat service will be introduced on Codeforces on 24 of February, 21:00 (MSK). It will be alpha version. In short time there will be more functionality there. Please report bugs and your suggestions to me .
It is strictly forbidden to discuss problems of current contest or violate other rules of codeforces.com in chat.
did the chat service ever come to completion?
I like the chat service, too. If it does not come out, can we make a Codeforces IRC channel, maybe?
You always can.
Also, >implying automatically trusting what you see on the internet.
Nice to see another IRC users here! I have been wondering whether it is popular among codeforces users or not.
About the IRC channel, I think there are some details that should be discussed.
What network should we use? I have mostly been using IRCNet but I really don't know about the differences.
Who will be the channel operators?
Will the channel be "official" i.e. related to codeforces.com admins?
I joined to channel #codeforces in some networks (the first who joins usually gets the ops so just in case...). I wasn't the first one on freenode though.
BTW, there is also
#algorithmson FreeNode, which is quite populated.
Hey, I give you B, you give me C :)
"Humor, are you there?"
"No, it's just me, Fear_Is_An_Illusion"
Is it possible to have this feature running, it will be amazing.
