The best way to get assistance from staff is by joining #help. Please keep in mind that all our staff are volunteers and you may at times have to wait for a staff member to become active.
You can also use the
/msg C STAFF command from within your IRC client to get a list of all staff currently online. Feel free to message one or more staff members as necessary until you find someone to help you.
Yes, we do. You can connect to an IPv6-enabled server by using irc.darenet.org, which contains both A and AAAA records.
You will be able to hold up to 5 connections per /48 subnet, which is the normal subnet mask your ISP should have assigned you. If that is not the case, and your ISP has assigned you a different subnet mask, please contact us stating this problem, be sure to include your IP address, subnet mask and the ISP. We may make an exception for this specific ISP.
We provide five services for users. They are named C, N, V, G and H.
C is DareNET's channel service. For more information, please see
/msg C HELP
N is DareNET's account and nickname management service. For more information, please see
/msg N HELP
V allows you to manage custom titles (e.g., fake hosts) for your account. For more information, please see
/msg V HELP
For a list of available titles, see the titles page.
G is used by DareNET staff to send important notices. It also allows you to retrieve any network notices addressed to your user class. For more information, please see
/msg G HELP
H is our help queue bot, which manages support requests needing the attention of network staff. You may create a support request ticket by sending a private message to the bot describing your problem.
Note: there are other services as well, but most are only available to DareNET staff.
