IRC Network accounts

Our IRC networks supports registering accounts directly via NICKSERV for legacy reasons and to allow non-members to use all the features of our IRC network. Click here for a quick guide on how to register legacy IRC accounts.

You can however also use your regular account that is connected to our IRC server via LDAP. Simply use your regular user-name and password as the SASL account details. If you are using our The Lounge IRC web-client, you need to input this twice, once to access The Lounge itself and once in the network connection dialog as the SASL login.

If there is an conflict with an legacy IRC account, please contact us on the #support channel to have an network admin erase that nick. Deleting it via NickServ is sadly insufficient as IRC nick-names stay reserved to prevent impersonation.

Please note that IRC account names are limited to a ASCII subset and registering names with uncommon characters can result in issues with IRC clients and/or chat bridges and is therefore not recommended. If you notice any issues due to this please let us know.
