The times, they are a-changin'.

Good news, everyone! games.on.net has officially retired its IRC channel as our method of contacting game administrators. From now on, the games.on.net Steam Group is now the official method for reach out pool of tireless volunteer admins.
Why the change? The IRC has performed admirably, but has always been an unofficial method of admin contact that many players don’t even know how to use. As the vast majority of the games for which we host servers are on Steam, and nearly everybody has Steam open all the time, we decided that using the games.on.net Steam channel for contacting admins would be faster, easier, and simpler.
If you need admin help with any game — even non-Steam games, such as Battlefield 3 — you can pop into our chat channel and ask for an admin. There’s usually somebody idling in there at most hours of the day and night, and you should be able to get the help you need.
We’ll be using the Steam group to promote community games nights, prizes and competitions as well, so there’s every reason to join and stay on top of the latest games.on.net news. Please also feel free to use the channel for general chat, discussions of funny internet pictures, and the usual sort of banter that we enjoy. If you have any questions, please let us know — but for now, join the games.on.net Steam Group and jump in!
