LizardIRC is FastLizard4's IRC network. Provided that you don't break our rules, you are welcome to use it for whatever you need! Just select a server to connect to from the list below.

Servers

Note: It is recommended that you connect to the IRC network through irc.fastlizard4.org rather than explicitly specifying a server to connect to. This allows for load balancing.

User Accessible

These are the servers users can connect to:

Inaccessible

Users cannot access these servers, either by configuration or because they aren't really servers (pseudo-servers).

Quick Connection

Just click below:

Rules

General rules:

  1. Use common sense.
  2. No flooding or spam.
  3. No network abuse - network use is logged
  4. No abusing other users
  5. No racism
  6. Bots are allowed, but MUST use usermode +B and SHOULD identify to services
  7. Bots must follow the same rules as humans
  8. Distribution of illegal and/or malicious software, or illegal distribution of copyrighted software (including, but not limited to, viruses, Trojan horses, warez, illegal game ROMs) is strictly forbidden.
  9. Just because this is the last rule listed here doesn't mean that there aren't more rules. Use common sense, don't do anything stupid, and, when in doubt, ask someone.

IRC IS A PRIVILEGE, NOT A RIGHT. WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO DENY ACCESS TO THIS NETWORK FOR ANY REASON.

Your use of LizardIRC constitutes acknowledgement of these rules and your agreement to them. Violation of these rules may result in your access to LizardIRC being terminated.

Web/cloud IRC clients

The following web/cloud IRC clients are approved for use with LizardIRC:

Note that an "approved" web/cloud IRC client is simply one that has been explicitly allowed in the LizardIRC configuration and/or have been configured with the web/cloud IRC client operator to provide additional data to LizardIRC. Please feel free to use a web/cloud IRC client not listed above!

Linking

No, we will not link to your IRC network. However, if you are interested in linking to LizardIRC, we will gladly assist in setting up your server and the linking process. The first step is to contact FastLizard4 either on LizardIRC or on his talk page (note: for this, you'll need to log in or request an account on LizardWiki).

Oper

Generally, only users that FastLizard4 knows will get oper. Generally, it will be offered to you, but it doesn't hurt to ask.

Cloaks/vhosts

While we don't support usermode +x, you can get a basic cloak by registering with NickServ, then running the command /quote hs TAKE lizardirc/user/$account. If you are a registered LizardWiki user, you can request a LizardWiki cloak on FastLizard4's talk page. If you want a different cloak, see the documentation for HostServ by doing /quote hs HELP and an oper will review your request.

Spam Prevention

DNSBL

LizardIRC makes use of the DNSBL (domain name system blacklist) module in InspIRCd. When you connect to LizardIRC, your hostname and/or IP address are checked against the blacklist provided by dronebl.org, which maintains an RBLDNS (real-time blacklist for DNS) database of spammers, known botnets, etc. If you are listed in the dronebl DNSBL, you will be automatically Z:lined (i.e., globally banned) from connecting to the server for a period of time. If you are banned because you are listed on the DNSBL, you have two courses of action:

  1. Use the link that is automatically provided when you were Z:lined to request removal from the blacklist, and/or:
  2. Email the LizardIRC admins at (click here to expose email address), who can set a E:line (i.e., ban exemption) for you.

Open Proxy Scanner

LizardIRC makes use of the BOPM open proxy scanner and all connecting users are scanned for open proxies. If you are found to be running one, you will automatically be banned from connecting. The scans originate from 96.126.96.9 and are not an attack on your computer, though they may appear to be so to an improperly configured antivirus scanner or in your logs. Your usage of LizardIRC constitutes your acknowledgement of this policy and your consent to be scanned and banned if you are running open proxies. If you do not wish to be scanned for open proxies, your usage of LizardIRC is unauthorized and you may not connect to the network. If there is some extenuating reason why you must use an open proxy, please send an email to the LizardIRC admins at (click here to expose email address).

Spam Filter

LizardIRC supports the use of spamfilters in the form of Perl-compatible regexes. Depending on the type of spam being blocked by the regex, the action taken by the spamfilter may be to merely prevent the message from being sent, killing the offending client, or G:lining the offending client. The spam filter may apply to any combination of messages or notices to users or channels, part messages, and/or quit messages.

If you are hit by a spamfilter and your message is blocked or you are killed, you can request help from an oper in #lizardirc. If you trip a spamfilter and are G:lined, you must wait some time for the G:line to expire (which varies from filter to filter), or send an email to the LizardIRC admins at (click here to expose email address).

Primary Channels

  • #lizardirc - The lobby for the network, if you will. The network's main channel. IRC relays for LizardNet Minecraft servers s2 and s2.5.
  • #devops - LizardNet Development and Operations. Official LizardNet support channel and home of the Gerrit Code Review and LizardNet Continuous Integration bots.
  • #devops-icingaspam - Home of the LizardNet Systems Status bot.
  • #opers - The opers channel (joining is restricted to opers). All server notices are echoed here. Joining this channel upon successful /oper is automatic.
