    - Added IRC server thanks to @iso

    - Test with server has been completed.

    - Chat tab has been added to the navigation bar.
    Note: Some Chrome browsers it won't load.

    - We invite people to join our live chat (feel free to idle and say hi).
    Note: irc.omgboards.com on port 6667 (SSL on 6697) in channel #omgboards

    What's IRC? Internet Relay Chat, it's a way to live chat with other online members.

    - Whoo, it's a new year, and in the meantime the forum has been running as desired.

    - Spam accounts have been manually reviewed, the spam filter did it's work: They were all justifiably banned.

    - Naughty posters have been manually addressed, and everybody's posting as we want, all is well.

    - 25,000+ members registered and while it's going slow: it's going!

    - I will soon archive this thread as a 2017 post and start a new one for 2018 this Spring.

    - Upcoming maintenance: The Spring update will include newer server hardware, a long-term resolution for the mail server, and an update to the software powering the forums and the services it requires to do so.

    - Thank you all in the last decade for sticking around and don't hesitate to contact us. Make some content, we welcome it!
