Loved ya, dawg! I'm gonna miss that "Coming Soon" chat page. Although I'm still open to the idea of there being an actual chat.
I doubt there will be. They haven't taken the two days I'd imagine it would take to add an integrated IRC channel, so they probably won't going forward.
Part of the problem, I'd guess, is that they'd probably have to run their own IRC server to prevent nick overlaps between NG users and users on whatever server they run it on, which I suppose could be more resource-intensive than they feel like putting up with. I heard a rumor a while back that it was because of authentication issues, but if they're running their own server, they should be able to run NickServ and plug that into their login system here. But I'm not an admin, so that's all just conjecture.
