I've been getting '502 Bad Gateway' for about a week now. Is it just me or is it down for other people as well?

The IRC channel and server still exist, guys. The server is, and the channel is #scrumbleship on that same server.
You can connect to it from your browser by following the following steps:
1. Go to
2. Click the 'server' button. A server write-in thing should appear.
3. In the 'Server' write-in, write in everything between the quotation marks: "".
4. Put whatever you like into the 'Nick' write-in. Then in the 'Channel' write-in put in everything between the quotation marks: "#scrumbleship"
5. Press 'Connect'.
6. You're in.

Huh, and here I thought the Bad Gateway message meant the whole IRC server was down. Good to hear it's still up!

Do people still hang out there?

Why not have a gander for yourself?

Although I am a little hurt that you think I wouldn't report if the IRC was dead, in any of the applicable meanings of the word.

I asked because I did spend a couple of days on the IRC and haven't seen a single sign of activity, nor did anyone reply to anything I said. Maybe I'm in the wrong timezone, being based in Eastern Europe, but even then not seeing a single message in an entire day is alarming.

I haven't seen anything from Dirkson in a long time either. Nobody's bothered to fix the IRC link here on the forums, or at least put a temporary explanation that it's being worked on. For all I know, he could be dead in the most literal sense. I certainly hope that's not true and that's he's doing well, but there seems to be zero reliable ways to contact him, if he's still even in contact with this community.
