I think I accidentally reset the poll. I think two people already voted if they want to revote

Might I suggest a Discord server? free, easy and 'cleaner' than irc, VERY easy to use and one of the more popular chat programs currently next to Telegram

I would second a vote for Discord. Many more people have that installed than an IRC client. I also just finished migrating away from IRC and don't feel terribly compelled to go back.

I've never used it but I'll go along with Discord.

Looks like discord is pretty similar to slack. I'll set one up today and post the link. If it doesn't seem to work out we can fall back to irc.

Hmm, it says that the instant invite has expired... There should be a way to set up a permanent link to a chat, like a button next to the invite button or something like that IIRC.
