For me personally, I'm happy for the Lexicon to stay in its current format which is both functional and easy to use in my opinion. I don't know how much time such an unwarranted transfer would take but I heartily applaud those willing to undertake it!

Anyone know what's up with IKM? I hope it's just some temporary downtime...

Oh man! My bookmarks haven't been working all week (still aren't) and I couldn't connect to chat yesterday, so I thought the whole thing was offline, but I see the website *does* load if I remove 'www' from the URL. How odd. And there is a chat log from yesterday, so it must have been working for everyone else, but still doesn't work for me! What am I doing wrong?? It gives me the message "irc.knightmare.org.uk: Could not resolve hostname". :(

I always use Mibbit as the ones listed on IKM don't work for me. Pookaaaa, any ideas?

Works like a dream usually, unlike CGI::IRC which kept disconnecting me (without even telling me) every few minutes.

So, um, is it just me again, or is most of IKM not working at all now?

I had a word with Forester and both IKM and Knightmare Chat are working perfectly from my end now he's fixed it.

With regards to Mibbit, I set up an independent widget here whereby you can access the Room every Sunday night (or any time, really, but people are usually only there on Sunday evenings). You're right, the ones on IKM aren't great, especially CGI, but it'll do in a pinch.

Yup, 'tis all running beautifully now... things are even working that have never worked properly before! Hope to see some new (and old) faces in Knightmare Chat once the Challenge episodes begin! :)

IKM (Interactive Knightmare) now has a new feature entitled "Lexicon". It's rather obviously a Knightmare Lexicon designed to provide a dictionary / encyclopedia style reference to everything even remotely related to Knightmare.
Happy 10th birthday to the Lexicon. Maintained and contributed to for an entire decade, its 1000-plus entries are continuing proof that Knightmare devotees don't know the meaning of the phrase 'too much information'. ;) Thank you very much to Forester for creating it.

I concur with Drassil. Happy birthday to the Lexicon. A fantastic bed of Knightmare information and I always enjoy exploring it.

Thank you to Forester for creating this.
