Hello, Friend

 

IRC4Fun News – August 2018

On-going spam attacks (aimed at all IRC networks) continue.  We recommend that channels who are still experiencing spam attacks to activate channel mode +r (Registered & Logged-In Users only).  You can also seek a Utility Bot in #IRC4Fun. (Please do not repeat or paste the spam to any Staffers or channels, or you may be automatically mistaken as a spambot.)

Your users will need to register an account with X, using the HELLO command.

To register an account on X:

/msg X hello userName myvalid@email.com myvalid@email.com

To login to X:

/cs login username Password

To change your password in X:

/cs newpass YourNewPassword

Due to the recent, on-going Spam bots; we recommend ALL users register a username/account with X and login:

X (Channel Service)Due to the ongoing spambot attacks, we are recommending all users register a username or account, using the above described HELLO command.  Once you have used the HELLO command, X will provide you with a password which you can then use to LOGIN and change with the NEWPASS command.

This will allow you to chat in channels where they have set +M (Moderated: Registered & Logged In Users ONLY can chat) or enter channels that have set +r (Registered & Logged In Users only can join)

  • If you need any assistance with registering an X username/account, please see #Usernames
  • If you need any assistance with registering a Channel with X, please see #CService

Please make sure to use your valid email address in case you lose your password, or need your password reset.  Fake or disposable email addresses will result in your X username being globally Suspendedand unrecoverable if you should ever lose your password.

As always, we thank you for being an IRC4Fun user!  (We would also like to welcome our new users)
