    Id say focus on the task at hand, or it will fail.
    Walk before you try to Run.

    Why not add a newsgroup server, while you're at it?
    What's wrong with (a) channel(s) on the existing networks? What's wrong with slashnet, for example? It ain't run by Dice.

    This sounds like a procrastination effort to me. It's cool that we've all got the 'leet skillz to set up an IRCd, but should we do that just because we can?
    We're not forking freenet, 'cause they ignored the community, we're forking /..

    Don't spread our momentum too thin, focus on what brought us here instead.

    Oh, and about that voice thing: get the bots to give out voice during moderated discussions according to user karma and integrate better with the site.

    We don't need a network for that and might make some friends on the existing networks for driving extra traffic to them.

    Just my couple cents.
