A permanent IRC channel for all Expanded Universe discussion has opened up on holonet.org, anyone who is interested in chatting about anything EU related is welcome to join.
That’s #eu on irc.holonet.org for the IRC know-it-alls. Set it up your favorite IRC program or point your browser at http://holonet.org/chat.php/eu.
Dunc, Broox, McEwok, Rohniss and Havac have auto op on a trial basis. The chat is not heavily moderated, they are there mostly to take care of the trolls.
Hope you drop in.
