##### Dropping support for OmnomIRC and Efnet
« on: June 01, 2020, 06:09:41 pm »
Due to OmnomIRC no longer being maintained by @Sorunome, we have removed it from the forum. This also means that we are no longer linking to Efnet.

We have replaced OIRC with a discord embed for those of you who prefer to chat from the forum itself.

Darnit! I was using that!
Now I won't be able to connect to omnomirc on my stupidly obsolete devices, nooooo!
Well, it's not something that will kill me, I guess. Where can I find a link to the discord server (and I also think the embed thing is a good idea)?
By the way, this explains why omnomirc has been acting funky recently, right?

I mean, you could always connect to omninet since it's IRC which is an old protocol

You can expand the Discord chat embed in the header and it should supply you with a link to the Discord server.

Yes, it's been refusing to properly connect to efnet and omninet, and when it does it's been failing to properly relay messages anymore.

Oh, so you're not getting rid of the server itself? Cool! You got me worried there.

Where? I don't see a discord embed on the site. I thought this was the transition period or something.

No, we got rid of OmnomIRC along with our Efnet channel.

It should be there at the top, as per the original post I said we have already replaced it and didn't announce a transition period. I've attached a picture of what it should look like.

Now it works. IDK why it wasn't visible before. So, just to be clear irc.omnimaga.org is still up and bridged to discord, right?

Could have been a browser cache issue.
Yes, Omninet is still up and running

I'm kind of amazed at how fast TitanEmbeds load here. When I last tried it a few months ago, it either took 30 seconds to load or showed a 500 error message.

They must have stabilized their infrastructure since you've tried it. By the looks of their status page, the embed is the thing that goes down the most, but that said, it doesn't seem to be down for a minute or two when it is down: https://status.titanembeds.com/781045173

Actually, it's still slow on my website. Not sure what is happening. On Omni it loads instantly. I also cannot open the status link (connection is not secure)
