Hey everybody.
I've been surfing on maemo.org for a couple months now and I love it but there is a small thing that could be better!
Why not integrate a chat on it? The reason why I'm asking this (there are plenty of reasons for everyone) is that I'm new to Linux and sometimes, I ask experienced users some help for something and we must work through threads and it would be so much easier if we could just get to the chat for a couple minutes instead of flooding an important thread.
Would this be complicated to do?
What do you think?
Thanks for reading my suggestion!

Haven't seen that, thanks for the quick answer!
Could this be done directly on the web site?

You can use Mibbit if you don't want to install anything. If you inserted it so that everyone would join when you go to the Talk page the channel would be flooded. Maybe it should just be exposed a little more?

I've re-stickied the "The maemo Community - IRC on Freenode" thread. I had temporarily un-stickied it for the duration of the community brainstorm as I felt the forum was overloaded with sticky threads, so you can blame me for the thread being difficult to find.

I'm also thinking that adding "chat" to the title of that thread would benefit those who aren't familiar with IRC. I'll do that.

Mibbit doesn't work with Freenode anymore.

There is however a webchat offered by FreeNode themselves.
