The inimitable Chat Room (also known as Chatrealm) has often been said to be the writers of much of the absurd shit that appears on Diamond Club TV. They are a dedicated group of content producers brought together by magician and entrepreneur Brian Brushwood, comedian and journalist Justin Robert Young, and Internet jack-of-all-trades Tom Merritt. Frequently over the line and immature, the Chat Room consists of the best and worst that Diamond Club TV has to offer.

...except for Kuhan. He's always the worst.

Rules

The chat room is hosted on Diamond Club's Chatrealm IRC network. The main chat room is #chat. For other chat rooms, the rules may vary depending on who mods that room/channel.

  • Most important rule: don't be a dick (if someone asks you to stop doing something, you probably should) - respect must be extended to other fellow Chatrealmers
  • Take all drama to #drama or use PMs (private messages) or go somewhere else
  • If you are getting into a long conversation with someone, it is best to take that conversation somewhere else so that you are not clogging up the main chat
  • Don't spam excessively (the exception being during Night Attack)
  • All Hail the mighty t2t2 and his trusty moderaptor Source Link

Brief History of Chatrealm

Giggleloop's mock-up of what the chat realm would look like

During Scream Queens vs Zombie President, the chat room was accidentally referred to as "the chat realm". They went with it.

After that, "Chatrealm" became the term used to refer to fans of NSFW who are in the IRC chat room as they watch. Fans who also join in on unscheduled broadcasts are referred to as Diamond Club.

Over the years, the term "chatrealm" has started to be used to refer to people in the chat room of other TWiT shows with "Diamond Club" being used as the term often used to differentiate fans of NSFW.
