irca - the ircd for absurdists.
irca, inspired by its predecessor ircd-chatd, represents a development in ircd technology that can best be described as an absurd mish mash of ircu (+D delayjoins), Unreal (qaohv preserved intact), Inspircd (configurable y, q, a, h prefixes), geekshed (SCTP clients and so on) all on a substrate of Charybdis.

The flagship network (Umbrellix, for which this is the website, see the “Chat” link on the navbar, also Channels > #lounge) runs Atheme, but we favor our own Anope fork.

Networks known to have used ircd-chatd or irca at one point in their history:
|Network name||Currently?||Network server address||Owner’s nickname||Operation style notes||Back-contributions|
|Interchat||✗ Network is offline||irc.ircci.ml 6667 or +6697||demi||The admin here is pretty harsh, known to randomly launch into anger when he doesn’t get his way on a feature suggestion or what have you. It can still be an exciting place to chat though. Just be aware of demi’s heavy handed opering style.||Many feature suggestions from Interchat made it into ircd-chatd, and from there irca - helpop in whois, idle hiding. Potentially maybe soon channel-reply hiding, although there’s a chance that this just won’t happen.|
|Umbrellix||✓ Uses irca, used chatd||irc.umbrellix.net 6667 or +6697||Ellenor/Reinhilde/AmyMalik/MelanieMalik||Stuff’s pretty relaxed around here. Rage-/kills do occur but they are still rare.||Umbrellix is the network for which chatd and irca were written. The “back contributions” would be too numerous to list.|
