Happy New Year

Happy 2017. Sorry this is slightly late! We have been busy behind the scenes and the pages are starting to reflect that! This year actually sees a long standing member of the team leave. Good luck to Nevik with everything in the future and hopefully he still remembers to pop in from time to time. Due to this, Chitoge will no longer be linked and will be down by the end of today (sorry for the short notice).

However, as we see one server delink we gain another, Tomori. So it’s not all bad news. We hope she is as stable as Chitoge used to be.

It is a rather short blog post, although there should be more news around the corner.

We hope you continue to fly with IndirectIRC and that turbulance is limited in 2017 and beyond.

Updates at last?

Yes, that is right. Updates might be finally around the corner.
As you may have seen blog posts now have tags and there is a “Categories” listing in the sidebar.
This is all very exciting and could mean a change of direction for the website (not just network news!).
As you can probably tell, the network is pretty solid and there is no need to post that everything is fine.
Due to this, the staff here at IndirectIRC are thinking of new and exciting ways to use this website to get
people interested in what we do and, dare I say, love (in most cases). If you also feel the same way,
why don’t you read the new blogs (which should be coming shortly) and then join in the conversation
in either #indirect or #anime on our network (How to Connect).
We thank you for flying with IndirectIRC and hope you have enjoyed the journey and use our services again.

Shiro’s new Co-Admin!

Hi everyone,
As of a few days ago, Zord, a long time global operator, who was currently stationed on Chitoge was promoted to Co-Admin of Shiro, To aid in the administration,and maintenance of this server. With this, he carries the same power and authority on Shiro as me, and has full access to all tools formerly available only to me. With this, we will have less gaps in administrative coverage, and less reliance on a single person. Zord has been a behind the scenes emergency backup admin on my servers for years, and this promotion was a long time coming.
Please be sure to congratulate him!
In other news, Any website changes, issues, or news that needs to be posted should also be directed towards him, as he is also the Web Admin for IndirectIRC now.
Thanks for choosing IndirectIRC!

Goodbye Kotomi, Hello Shiro!

It’s now time to say goodbye to Kotomi. She has served us well, although we aren’t really sad to see her go. We now welcome a new server, whom will hopefully serve us better, Shiro.
If you have yet to do so, please change your IRC client settings to shiro.indirectirc.com or, alternatively, use our RR irc.indirectirc.com.
You’ll have a week until Kotomi is taken out of service, so you have time to make these changes.

Hope to talk to you there!
Zord.

P.S. For those interested in where the name came from, it’s a character from No Game No Life.

IRCd Switch

Hey,

We’ve recently switched from Plexus to Charybdis. This hopefully didn’t cause too much disruption. With this change we welcome Chitoge for a replacement to Togame (so update your client if you haven’t already) and sees Nexus de-link from us.

Sorry for any inconvenience.

bnc.im has landed!

Hi all,

Recently, bnc.im has added IndirectIRC to the list of networks they serve. What does this mean for you? Well we now have a public bnc service available to the users of IndirectIRC!
bnc.im is a BNC service that allows up to 3 networks for free. For a small fee, a user can upgrade their account, and get their own dedicated IP, and unlimited numbers or networks. bnc.im is available on several networks, and keeps expanding. They have servers in several regions around the globe. For those that don’t know what a BNC is, it simply keeps you connected to an IRC Network when you are away. It can also log what is said in the channels you are in while you are away, as well as other useful tasks. For more info about the services bnc.im provides, check their website http://bnc.im¬†or go to their irc channel #bnc.im . BNC signups can be done via the bot in #bnc.im , instructions are provided in the channel topic.

Stay tuned for more news soon, and Thanks for Flying IndirectIRC!

Nexus Linked

Nexus has been officially linked to the network. this gives us US East coast coverage, which we have been severely lacking for some time. nexus is adminned by matthew, and we welcome him to the administration team. I have personally worked with him on other networks(*cough* AlphaChat *cough*), and he is good people. :) I believe he will make a great addition to our administration team.
That’s all for now, stay tuned for more new stuff!

Misuzu and Citadel

Misuzu and Citadel have officially left the IndirectIRC Network.
Misuzu was delinked towards the end of last month due to some personal real life issues with the admin. We wish her the best of luck in her future endeavors.
Citadel was de-linked by Josh after he decided he no longer had the time to dedicate to being a Server Admin. We also wish him the best of luck.
Hikaru and Josh will both be departing from the staff with their servers, and we’ll miss them. Thanks to both of you for not only donating servers to our network, but for all you have done, and for being such great opers and friends. I’ll miss you both here.
There should be more news over the next few weeks, as we do have some pending link apps that will be trial linked for testing, so stay tuned!

sakura? misuzu? citadel?

I forgot to announce these 3 items, so bear with me.

sakura.indirectirc.com has been linked to the network. It is adminned by Dan and is physically located in Los Angeles, CA. This server sees the return of US coverage. It has not been added to the pools yet, due to some network issues.

Now, misuzu was my server, but it has now been transferred to Hikaru. Hikaru and her channel #shatteredplanes joined the network over a year ago, during the short time we were merged with WarpSpeedIRC. She’s smart with computers, and ready to learn the world of servers and IRCds, and you can’t learn properly without doing in my opinion, so she has a server now. Let’s wish her the best of luck, and we’re happy to have her on the team.

Also, I have been notified that Josh is now posting weekly updates on the citadel page. You can view that http://indirectirc.com/citadel/. He’ll be posting updates of what’s going on with him, his latest projects, and other cool stuff, so be sure to check it out.

I think that’s it for now. If you are reading this site, and haven’t been to the network yet, swing by and give us a shot. Point your client at irc.indirectirc.com or use the Webchat link in the Navigation bar. We’ll see you there!

Bazinga De-Links

After a differing in viewpoints, and some pointless politics, Simplicity has decided to to leave the network, and pull bazinga. He has started his own network, and we wish him luck in his return to running his own network.
Nothing else has changed, besides this, so this is a relatively short post.
Stay tuned for more news!
