United IRC Networks (powered by IRC4Fun)

UIN (United IRC Networks) is an IRC network interlinker.  It allows multiple like-minded (seperate) IRC networks (which may be utilizing different IRC server software than others) to maintain a link together and share channels and users if/as desired.  United IRC Networks is powered by PyLink.                Chat Now » | Policies » | Apply for Link »


Purpose

PyLink allows IRC networks to link together and share channels and users, even if they use a different IRCd sofware or IRC Services software to power their servers and networks.  This allows linked network users to have additional channels, interests, users and content that previously may not have been available to them.

Linked Networks may choose which channels they would like to share and which shared channels they would like to have on their networks.

Motivation

Some users and/or administration may feel that this is merely a means of increasing user counts across linked networks and provides no real benefit.  We feel that this is completely false!  We’re excited to bring users additional choices in channels available, users available to chat with, additional interests and game chanels — and provides network administration with a means to “stay current” on IRC, abuse prevention, and IRC’s future!  Our goal is not to increase user-counts, but rather provide our users with additional means of chatting, finding friends, and additional content without having to open a bunch of server windows/tabs.

Resources

  • Compatible IRCd Software: UnrealIRCd 4+, InspIRCd 2.0, Charybdis 3.5+, Elemental-IRCd 6.6*, InspIRCd 3.0, IRCd-Hybrid 8.2*, juno-ircd 11.*, Nefarious IRCu 2.0.*.
  • Incompatible Software: IRC Defender, Freenode’s Sigyn, Any Services Package using KILLs instead of AKILLs, K-lines or G-lines (This includes any bots that might attempt to KILL users instead of handle them locally with a K/G-line.)  If the incompatible software is modified or configured to NOT use KILLs, it is compatible.  This is a MUST for all Linked Networks and should be double-checked, as the defaults are usually set to KILL which is NOT compatible!

New Chanfix (W) (August 1, 2019)
ChanFix is a service for un-registered channels that can reop the channel in the event that it loses all operators. ChanFix can also reverse takeovers and reop the proper operators. ChanFix works by scoring users who hold channel operator status in a channel (and are logged into X) over a two (2) week period. ChanFix (W) can be triggered manually by Users, IRC Operators as well as automatically. [Read more]
