Salam. I was a member of shiachat way back in 2007. Life got busier and I somehow lost track. Shiachat was like a family then :). I wonder how is it now? Btw I rejoined today n looking forward to meet

(bismillah) (wasalam) Explain to your sister that the similar way Israel has occupied the Muslim lands of Palestine, those two tyrants have occupied the resting place of the Holy Prophet SA. Astaghfi

How many members do we ACTUALLY have Ali?

P.S.

God; I’m getting flashbacks now when I first joined - I was the trouble maker back then  :angel:

(salam)

Well, I think we went up to 15,000 members, then I deleted all the inactive ones and went back to 5000 members, we're up to 10,000 members again and I'll probably delete all the innactive ones again soon.

You had a diff. nick?

Ali - Can you build a Voicechat system in the chatroom - Ya3ni something like Paltalk?

(salam)

If we find a VoiceChat room that works with our current forum database, and enough volunteers to moderate it. We'd go for it.

so what happened to #shia at irc.dal.net .. I haven't been on irac for quite some time .. but is it affiliated still with this site?

Nope, the founder (Hussein from Toronto) just pretty much let it expire.. Now it was taken over by Pakistanies who can't speak English, other than "a/s/l?".

Zain, LOL! Good find!

April 2003 - I remember a good friend of mine told me about Shiachat; she said the Sunnis were roaming here freely spreading their Aqeeda and Shias were falling for it - Even though that wasn’t the case - I think it was her way of getting my attention and basically 'forcing' me to go on line and have a look.

It was a good thing that I looked :)

Though it seems I've been a member since 22nd of May 2003, it's only been in the past few months that I've become an active member. My sister actually introduced me to shiachat. And my BIL (he used to be a member back in he good 'ol' IRC days).

Wa`Salaam

Assalam alaykum,

Wow.. cant believe it's almost 3 years that I've been here.

I joined April 2003, quite frankly because alhewar.com was down.. (and has completely and gracefully ceased now :cry: ).. I remember sis jlainqatar (Um Ali on alhewar) mentioned it.. so I thought I'd check it out.. but ShiaChat moved wayyyy too quickly for me to keep up and I thought people were a lot more mean on here than al-hewar (i.e. they'd attack you.. al-hewar was a LOT kinder :lol: ).

So i joined but didnt say much initially.. eventually I started posting more and more.. Have learned a lot about Shia Islam and people in general.. its defintely toughened me up over the years lol :P :shaytan:

Yea it's true. Al-hewar were alot nicer than ShiaChat.com. They would open the door for you, pull out a chair and serve you drinks. Here, we ususally have the door locked, no chairs and you have to get your own drinks, then we charge you for it. It's a love-hate relationship..

When i started uni - believe it or not i didnt have an email adress until i applied to uni - my sunni uncle funnily enough sent me a link to this site. I was part of a sunni board but they didnt like me posting stuff on muharram and so i left it and came here and have wasted half my time at uni on here :wacko:

Hmm...I joined almost a year ago (time flies :blink: I feel old :cry: ). The first person I talked to was sis Bismillah :D and I learned a ton of stuff...I learned more in one year on Shiachat than I did my whole life :blink: . I found it when I was looking for a religious avatar on google, and the words "shiachat" in the URL caught my attention, and I joined the same day.

wa'salam
