We're very sad to announce that tabb will be retiring from IRC4Fun (and likely IRC in general). tabb has been an IRC4Fun Administrator and sponsored many servers throughout most of IRC4Fun's lifetime. He is a true friend, and we will miss him very much! This also means that some servers will soon be leaving as well, including (but not limited to) blackhole.IRC4Fun.net, kangaroo.IRC4Fun.net, and paradise.IRC4Fun.net. We're going to miss tabb and thank him for his many years of contributions to IRC4Fun and many other IRC networks!
Upgrade to IRC4Fun's IRC Server SSL Certificates We will be moving all IRC4Fun servers towards using wildcard certificates -- instead of a certificate for the server-name. This will improve connecting to IRC4Fun without (some) clients complaining about hostname validation errors, and will prevent some IRC4Fun servers from having their certificates expire. (more…)
Planned Maintenance - Server Upgrades We will be upgrading our IRC Servers to InspIRCd-3.13.0, starting Saturday (April 30th, 2022). During these upgrades, servers will require a restart; which will result in some temporary disconnections and netsplits. We will do our best to minimize the inconvenience to users. (more…)

We’re excited to announce the arrival of 6 new themes as well as 1 new plugin, for TheLounge users!

[wp-svg-icons icon="bullhorn" wrap="i"] Update (12/24/2021): GIPHY Plugin Disabled [wp-svg-icons icon="bullhorn" wrap="i"] The GIPHY plugin has been disabled due to issues with the plugin being unable to restart upon a restart of TheLounge server, as well as the increased memory usage.
