Coming Soon: Server & Services Changes IRC Server changes We will be changing our IRCd software from Nefarious IRCu to InspIRCd 3.*. This will allow us to not only continue to provide an optimal IRC experience and home to our channels & users, but will also allow us to add new enhancements to the network (such as new features, IRCv3, SASL, new modes, etc.) IRC Services changes We will also be moving over to Anope IRC Services in order to provide Nickname Registration, Channel Registrations, Memos, etc. We chose Anope because of it's enhanced features and compatibility with the new InspIRCd3 servers.

CService (X) Account Password Requirements (update) The IRC4Fun Channel Service Committee (CService) has updated the password requirements for accounts today. Going forward, passwords will still require 7 characters (1 Capital letter minimum, 1 lowercase letter minimum, 1 number minimum) but will no longer require a symbol. This will help to alleviate confusion with users upon registration as well as alleviate the amount of forgotten passwords & password resets. Users who prefer to have a symbol or symbols in their passwords can still do so. New Password Requirements: Must contain at least 7 characters. Must contain at least 1 Capitalized letter. Must contain at least 1 lowercase letter. Must contain at least 1 number.
IRC4Fun Servers & SSL Connections (enhancement) We have started maintenance on various IRC4Fun IRC servers to enhance our SSL connections. We are getting rid of our self-signed certificates and will be using valid certificates from Let's Encrypt. This will provide better security to our users and their IRC clients. Servers currently upgraded with valid certs: (Round Robin) ssl.IRC4Fun.net (Australia) kangaroo.IRC4Fun.net (Canada) apocalypse.IRC4Fun.net (London) applied.IRC4Fun.net (Netherlands) blackhole.IRC4Fun.net (Canada) coven.IRC4Fun.net Please see #IRC4Fun if you have any questions or concerns.
Happy 13th Birthday, IRC4Fun! IRC4Fun is celebrating it's 13th year of operation today (10/20/2020)! We would like to thank our channels, guests, staff and most importantly -- our users! We look forward to continuing to provide the best IRC network experience for many, many more years to come!
Changing your Password or MAXLOGINS setting Going forward, users who wish to change their password or MAXLOGINS setting must use the CService Web Interface to make these changes. Previously, users could change either their Password or set their MAXLOGINS setting within X. These changes allow users to better maintain the security of their accounts as well as provide better consistency for users in regards to updating their MAXLOGINS setting. (more…)
