CService is excited to announce that TOPICs can now be up to 400 characters!

Last night the IRC4Fun Administration team and CService team worked together to make 400-char topics a possibility!  Before, you could only set a TOPIC of 250 characters maximum, even though X allowed for a longer DESCRIPTION & URL in it's AUTOTOPIC feature. 

Issues Identified & Fixed:
  • With the former settings on the IRC4Fun IRC Servers and X's character limits; some channel TOPICs were truncated. (Parts of the intended end of the TOPIC would not show.)
  • With the former settings and limits being in-consistent; users were confused by X's DESC (DESCRIPTION) and URL character limits, as offered by X.
  • With the former inconsistent settings, X would only allow smaller TOPICs than even 250 characters.
CService and IRC4Fun Server Administrators worked together to fix these issues, and now:
  • X will allow a DESC/DESCRIPTION of up to 292 characters.
  • X will allow a URL or URLs of up to 108 characters.
  • X's TOPIC command will allow a TOPIC of up to 386 characters. (14 characters are reserved for placement of the Username setting the TOPIC)
  • IRC4Fun Servers will allow a TOPIC up to 400 characters in length before truncating any additional characters.
We would like to thank our newest user, Yendred for finding these inconsistencies and bugs and promptly alerting @synapse.
