Default [IRC] Gathering talent in one place

When it comes to translation projects, I refuse to work with people I'm not familiar with. Reputation, personality, in addition to talent are extremely important. The problem is it's hard to get that information first hand if everyone's just a release page and a resume. It's also hard to build the momentum needed to get a project started in a vacuum.

So, today I've started a new IRC channel, #denpa on What I'd like is to gather as many people who actually work on projects, those who would want to work on projects, those who think "maybe I can do something, if I knew how/what", into one room. That way, if someone goes "Hrm, this looks interesting and I want to do it" everyone else in the room can go "Oh, that's interesting, and since I know you, maybe I can help with this".

Everyone else in the general public is welcome to wander in, chatter, lurk, whatever. Think of it as a casual hangout where potential staff members chatter about moe, games, books, weather, etc. Get to know random staffers from random projects, show off this or that, and so on.

The only rule I want to enforce is "Don't be a jackass."
Disagreements and debates, all that is natural, but being a jackass isn't.
Flamers and distruptive people will meet Hiyorin's magic hammer.
