Services Web Panel has been disabled & removed

General, Services, Website
Services Web Panel News The IRC4Fun Services Web Panel (used by users to register & manage their nicknames and channels) has been disabled during a series of spambot attacks.  The spambots used the Web Panel to register nicknames in mass with fake email addresses. We've previously added anti-bot measures to the registration form, used by the Services Web Panel -- however, it was only effective 45% of the time. It has been decided that the Services Web Panel will not return, since it was just primarily used by the spambots.

tabb is resigning from (IRC)4Fun

General, Network, Services, Staff, United IRC Networks
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!
