    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!

    Do not discuss politics, religion, world views

    Rule breaking will be based on a 3-strike system. If you break 3 strikes, you will be temp banned for a week. For every offense after those 3 weeks, you will be banned for an additional week (ex: 5th offense 2week ban)
    If you managed to rack up a month long ban, you will be permanently banned.

    Qualifications:
    Must be a known user in the PowerPC subform (post often/reply often)

    Online information forums are as close to any form of "Social media" as you'll ever get me.

    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.

    Maybe Adium is messing up for me. Doesn't show I'm in a group chat.

    I said no initially, but I'm thinking I may need to dust off my old AIM account...

    When Gamer9430 started bouncing the idea around, I mentioned that I think the last time I used AIM was before he was born :)

    I don't think I meet the rank thing:

    "Must be MR RANK 6502 or higher"

    Well, I guess I'll fix that rule for it to be more open. @iModFrenzy though that too, that my 6502 choice was too high. MR Regular it is!

    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.
