    Hey everyone,

    On Pokemon Online's server, they have a little link in their little welcome message at the top of the window (ours says "Welcome to the Smogon University Server") where you can click on it and be taken to their irc. This is incredibly convenient, and considering there are already a few links in ours, why not add a link to #dreamworld or a more applicable channel?

    Thanks and have a nice day!

    I do not really understand the need to advertise another Smogon chat when there is already one built into the program. The "brain drain" on the chat by IRC is bad enough as it is. Anyone with a respectable level of intelligence will flock to IRC rather than our simulator chat.

    Also, pragmatically it is more useful to use server topic space for announcements that are actually relevant to the server (such as suspect testing, updates, rules, etc.). Other announcements are better left on the forums or main site.
