On another site I post on (not specifically f1), we had a chat on a irc server. I thought maybe you could get a chat plug in for the forum and we could like have a chat during the F1 races.
What does everyone think? (And Iceman of course :p )

I have been active in the IRC scene but it does not beat a forum where you can read back the posts.
During the Race the official Thread is open , you are welcome to Join it

Thanks

Very good idea. Info during the race would be good. But iceman1 is right, in IRC you cant read back the posts.

IRC is a good idea .. But the problem is too many people at the same time would make IRC irritating .. The messages will keep flowing in a super quick speed and we will not know what kind of conversation is going on !

You can always log messages in IRC so it's not really a problem. :O IMO IRC would be better in race discussions because posting to forum is difficult when there's like 10 messages coming at the same time and everyone's basically just saying the same thing. For instance when you're posting something and press reply the forum says that there's 5 new posts... you press reply again and it says that now there's another 2 new messages within that 2 seconds and it's kind of irritating. ''hmm''
