It's that time again! We will start server upgrades with chatgeek* starting this Thursday (April 18th) sometime in the late evening. The upgrades on chatgeek* include both server upgrades (more HDD space and RAM) and software (Updated IRC software). Then perhaps the other servers will be upgraded the weekend after that. Thanks!

happy new year!

We are losing our UK server due to the ISP it is on shutting down. We'll let you know if/when we get another UK server. Thank you.

Anonymous abuse

Please note: We will not tolerate abuse from anonymous services such as TOR (should be mostly blocked already) or Hotspot Shield. If more abuse occurs from any anonymous source, we WILL dedicate our resources to blocking said source. Thanks and have a nice day! :)

The following is WikkedWire's view on Anonymity.

WikkedWire respects each individual's right to privacy and anonymity. WikkedWire provides basic cloaking options on the IRC network to ensure no one (beyond IRCops) can see your actual host-name/IP Address. (Please note: If you attempt or accept a DCC request, your host-name/IP WILL be shown to the other person.)

Going to start upgrading servers starting Thursday morning... continuing Saturday morning and finishing Sunday morning.
