Hello,

i just opened now a IRC Channel #AirVPN on the irc network  irc.freenode.org

 

this channel can be usefull for new users to get in touch with AirVPN services and just to talk about Anonimyzers in general.

if any administrator of AirVPN want to come, i will be glad to offer them the Operator status.

 

i hope that you will like it & have a nice day.

I like the idea of an AirVPN "chat lounge" of some sort. However, I wouldn't choose Freenode for two reasons:
- restrictive Tor policy (you can't connect via Tor unless you're registered, which they don't allow you to do via Tor).
- they've blocked AirVPN (and other VPNs) in the recent past:
https://airvpn.org/topic/9399-freenode-bans-airvpn-users/

The OFTC network - also the home of Tor's channels - might be a better fit, what do you think?

In any case, for such a channel to "take off" AirVPN would have to mention it on its site, so let's hear how staff feels about an IRC channel.

Why not use use the Airvpn Jabber server.You can have a lobby also and you can use otr.

I am not terribly keen on Freenode, either.  I "second" the suggestion we use OFTC.

IRC: I am against Freenode because they discriminate against Tor users. Oddly enough, "Anonops" has an even worse Tor policy! From the instructions on their site on how to connect via Tor: "You must have a registered nick which has been active for 3 days on our network."

OFTC has none of these restrictions, allowing channel mods to decide on their own Tor policy.

 

XMPP: My guess would be that IRC is still more popular, but I like the idea! I'll be idling in lounge@conference.xmpp.airvpn.org

I agree ,its an easy and save option.b.t.w. Pidgin is easy to configure for this.

I'd like to revisit this issue.  I'm okay with using the AirVPN XMPP server, but IRC is pretty convenient.  I'll make a point of visiting #AirVPN on OFTC, in case anyone is interested.

Spread the word across many IRC networks for advertising purposes! ;)

Be competent users who can answer most questions, link to forum posts, be nice and polite.


Always remember:
There's a guide to AirVPN,

Amazon IPs are not dangerous here,
running TOR exits is discouraged,

using spoilers for your logs helps us read your thread.

~ Furthermore, I propose that your paranoia is to be destroyed. ~

Instead of writing me a personal mail, consider contacting me via XMPP at gigan3rd@xmpp.airvpn.org or join the lounge@conference.xmpp.airvpn.org. I might read the mail too late whereas I'm always available on XMPP ;)
