Original Info: For about a year now, I've ran an extremely secluded and invite only iMessage Group chat (and have made some great friends through that). We have finally decided to open it up a little more, an to do that, we are launching the MR PPC AIM Group chat! This will be a much more open group chat were (as long as you are approved) anyone can join without an invite. Our iMessage chat will still keep going, however, it will be secluded. If a particular user really earns my trust like the current members have, I'll send an invite your way. However, this will be very limited and rare for the sake of keeping the iMessage chat peaceful. Anyway, being that it's AIM, it will work on Android, iOS, Windows, online, and any version of OS X and OS 9!

New Reboot Info: The iMessage chat has grown more and has since move to Slack and is still a private chat that is invite only by myself. Thanks to newfound interest, the AIM chat is now being rebooted into Slack. Please read the info below before asking to be joined!

I haven't used my Intell AIM account in a while. Still use AIM for monitoring older remote servers though.

I might as well join. My AIM is IntellMR. Saw "OS 9" and though it meant iOS 9. It's been awhile for me since I used Mac OS 9.

I'll join, send me an invite if its ok, name on AIM is Surrat MacFan.
Does this work with iChat? roadbloc@roadbloc.co.uk if so :)
That's an awesome idea. I'd love to join the group! My AIM ID is mikyotty:)
Thank you!
Thanks guys! Adding now.
Also Roadbloc, it does work with iChat, but being that iChat doesn't save or load transcripts, I recommend against using it and instead use the official AIM client (version 2.2 for OS X, 2.1 for OS 9). But yes, you can use it.
