Welcome

Global Gamers is an IRC network that was formed on one simple concept: gaming should be fun! Whether you live for annihilating the competition in a free-for-all FPS or you sneak in a game of Solitaire when your friends aren't watching, we understand. We know games are there to be enjoyed, and we don't want to complicate something that's supposed to be a source of entertainment...

Getting Started

Join us on IRC! If you have an IRC client already simply connect to irc.globalgamers.net to get started. You can also join us from the comfort of your favorite web browser using the Webchat. The New User Guide has additional tips to help you get started, and the navigation bar at the top of each page contains links to everything you may wish to know about GG.

Global Gamers: 7 years and counting! - Posted by ButtaKnife on November 16, 2013

On Monday, Global Gamers turned 7 years old, and today we're happy to host our annual anniversary celebration. At this very moment, there are games being played and prizes being won, and we hope that fun is being had by everyone involved! It's a real privilege to be able to host fun events for such an awesome community, so thank you to everyone who hangs out in any of the communities in our GG family. From people who only know us as Global Gamers to everyone who came to us through UTChat, GameRadius, ReplayIRC, and other communities, we have built up a great community of communities that is a lot of fun to be a part of.

The last year has been an interesting one for a lot of us, and though things may some times seem quiet, we're still working to make sure that Global Gamers remains a great place to call home, on IRC at least. We have many projects that we are working on to help you have fun and enjoy your time with us. Progress has been slower than we would have liked, but that happens!

Even so, we have recently made changes to GG which, thankfully, no one noticed - because you weren't supposed to. We changed our DNS system to use Amazon Web Services so that we never run into an issue again like we did earlier in the year which left the globalgamers.net addresses unable to be looked up. Now, when you type www.globalgamers.net in your address bar or your IRC client connects to irc.globalgamers.net, a nearby Amazon server is ready to give your computer the information it needs to get you here, and that's a very good thing.

We also, thanks to the hard work of several GG staffers, have opened up a Community Feedback survey that a bunch of you have already been gracious enough to fill out. We do this all for you guys, so if we're not doing something right, we want to know about it!

Other changes are forthcoming, and although I don't have a timeframe on any of them, rest assured that we have fun plans for the future of GG.

I want to conclude today with something a little different. Our resident traveling Dutchie, iknietjij, is trying to get support for an interesting fundraiser. Essentially, if ikni and his friend "win", they get to take a trip from the Netherlands to Norway to raise money along the way for charity. If you're interested in supporting that, you just need to visit http://www.noordkaapchallengegame.nl/finalist/view/434 and click "Stem via e-mail" to vote by email. You'll get a confirmation email afterward to verify your vote.

Whew! Anyway, tl;dr: thank you all for the last 7 years, and we look forward to even more fun in the years to come!
