    I know IRC doesn't have the BIGGEST presence on the site, but it still could benefit from having a small subforum (I guess it would fit in smogon metagames?)


    mainly because banned users have no way of appealing their bans besides PMing us, and that's rarely a successful endeavor for the ban(ees?).

    You could also fit a SQSA answer in for people with questions pertaining to IRC.

    I know it wouldn't come close to being as active as other subforums, but it could still be useful.

    I guess it would fit in Smogon Metagames (since the tag for the forum's description mentions #pokemon)

    But it isn't really a Smogon Metagame. We don't have an IRC metagame (the idea is intriguing though). Something under Sites & Projects would probably be more sensible, no?

    yeah, I guess it would fit better in S&P

    irc metagame sounds fun though!

    IRC really doesn't need a ban appeals forum. It's rare enough users get banned on #pokemon, and anything involved with the splinter channels is really nothing to be concerned about.

    EDIT: hell splinter channel policy is "not affiliated with smogon rules at all besides extreme circumstances." Usually getting banned from say #grammar is nothing to appeal about in the forums.

    This is being discussed internally. IRC AOps and SOps, you can talk with Aldaron about this if you're interested in the current discussion; he should be contacting you about this anyways. Good idea to start us off with, jon. We'll see where we can take it =)
