Tomorrow (Tuesday, September 16) we're goign to have a live chat at 8pm Eastern Standard Time in the #galciv channel on irc.stardock.com.
Here's the way we currently plan on doing it.
There will be two channels:
In #galciv, no one but ops will be able to speak. I will answer questions posted in #galcivQA.
From 8:00pm to 8:15pm I will answer questions from #galcivQA in the #galciv channel.
Then at 8:16pm we'll open it up so that everyone can talk in #galciv and I'll answer questions and participate in dsicussions as fast as my little hands can take me.
You can get onto those channels from either an IRC client like mIRC or from Stardock Central and clicking on chat and then joining #galciv by typine "/join #galciv" and "/join #galcivQA".
