Many people say that the NES is dead. They want nothing to do
with it. But there are a suprising number of people who still
have great interest in the NES, particually due to the rise of
NES Emulation. Up until a few years ago, these "old
skoolers" just stuck to themselves, and played their NES
when others were obcessed with the PS-X and N64. But 4 years ago
when the (now-deceased) NES Nation was created, its members
formed a chatroom. It was #nes on Parachat. Alot has changed
since then. The chatroom moved to EFnet and was renamed #nes98.
Markm created a bot named "Samus" for the room. But
when the N64 Drones and emukiddies started pouring in, the ops
(operators) decided it was time to move to DALnet, which has
better channel control. Markm didn't like this idea at all
(DALnet doesn't allow many bots), so fights broke out, feelings
got hurt, and people left the NES community. But the chat ended
up on DALnet. This lasted for about 10 months. Now there are two NES chats. #nescene and #nes98. Check em out and see which is best for you.
