Hi! We are in the final stages of the SRK forum migration. Soon, we will lock the forums so we can transfer over all the discussion threads. Please expect a downtime of a few days while we implement the migration. Thx for your patience.
With recent events, and resurrection of the Skype thread, more and more people want to join the Skype group.
Having to add people into the Skype Chat can make people feel unwanted or alienated if they don't get added right away, even if there isn't any malice intended. Not everyone is available to add people into the Skype chat and others may feel uncomfortable adding strangers onto their Skype Contact List.
With an IRC we can just send out the info to join, and anyone can join freely.
