[♫ The Bridge People No Longer Cross] So Krista showed me this tool called Sameroom ( https://sameroom.io/ ) that could bridge between IRC and Skype I've tested it out on my own and it works fine enough, although we would probably run into the same issue we had when we tried bridging the two in the past (i.e. some people will be annoyed by the constant barrage of messages on Skype, needing to prefix the name using the "bridge user") What I mean by the latter is that a message from IRC -> Skype shows up like this: and a message from Skype -> IRC shows up like this: So it's a pretty neat tool. I think it'd be good for people who might want to use Skype to keep in touch with the IRC people, but I want to confirm with both sides that it is alright before I go ahead and do it. My plan currently is to use my old Skype account (eebit.tibee) as the bridge from Skype, and I'd create a dummy account for the IRC side of things so it'll be evident when I'm talking vs. when the bot is talking. From the IRC side of things, I don't think it'll be too invasive. It might take some adjusting, but I don't think that it'd overwhelmingly disrupt the flow of things as long as everyone is okay with the format of the conversation. I feel like the main issue we had last time was that the experiments were conducted without warning and in the main chat. One thing that we would need to do is set up a new Skype group. The current one would not be supported by Sameroom as it was created before Microsoft acquired Skype according to the "/get name" command. The current Skypers would undoubtedly need to adjust their settings on the new group to not notify them on every new message. I say this because I know it really annoyed people last time we attempted it without warning. People could be added to this new group on request, since not everyone is going to want to be in it, and obviously, we'll also have people who use both IRC and Skype. All of this said, I want to propose this idea to the group-at-large. I know we're not (currently) the most active, but I think that allowing people to chat on their preferred platform using a bridge is ideal. Let me know what you think, if you have any questions, etc.
