Delirus IRC

The online network for everyone!


About Us

The story of Delirus IRC Network
The Delirus IRC Network was originally started in 2015 by sysfail, known then as the AusIRC Network. Based in Central West NSW in Australia, the network grew over a few years to incorporate some regular users and well known and loved bots for playing various games. Our main network channel is #delirus and this is used for general discussion and playing some games. The network help channel is also #delirus and any users may join and ask their questions. In our network channel Network staff are usually shown by the "&" user status, network regulars are shown by the "@" user status and some bots and VIPs are shown by the "%" user status.

What is IRC?

Internet Relay Chat (IRC) is a text-based chat system. It enables discussions among any number of participants in so-called conversation channels, as well as discussions between only two partners — for example, in question-and-answer dialogues. Any participant may open a new conversation channel, and a single computer user can also take part in several such simultaneous channels....


How do I connect?
Start by getting yourself an IRC client, I have provided links for my favourites.


Once you have downloaded and installed your chosen IRC client, run it. You can now type: /server and once connected type: /join #delirus to join us in the main channel.

It was created from scratch to be stable, modern and lightweight. It provides a tunable number of features through the use of an advanced but well documented module system.

Meet Our IRC Services

What are IRC Services?: IRC Services are psuedo-clients that connect to an IRC network through a special server linked to the network. This allows the services to control users, channels and many other aspects of the network's security. The various services, listed below, allow for users to secure their nicknames and channels, aquire bots (robot users) for their channel, request fake hostnames and various other things.

NickServ: Our NickServ service allows users to register and control settings for their nickname. This means if anyone wants to use your nickname or gain access to your channel rights, they need your password.

You can type: /MSG NickServ HELP on IRC to see the help information for NickServ and see a list of commands.

ChanServ: Our ChanServ service allows users to register channels and control the access of those channels. You can also control channel settings and modes. This means, no one can steal or take over your channel while you are not online.

You can type: /MSG ChanServ HELP on IRC to see the help information for ChanServ and see a list of commands.

BotServ: Our BotServ service allows Network Staff to create psuedo-bots for people to use in their channels, this is controlled closely and any requests can be discussed in #delirus or #staff. Users who gain a bot in their channel will lose Sentinel.

You can type: /MSG BotServ HELP on IRC to see the help information for BotServ and see a list of commands.

HostServ: Our HostServ service is used for users to request fake hostmasks to be linked to their NickServ registered nickname, this can be useful for hiding you IP of hostname from other users. Most requests will be accepted unless they are an actual domain, or are racist or extremely vulgar. For more information or assistance with this please join #delirus or #staff and ask your question.

You can type: /MSG HostServ HELP on IRC to see the help information for HostServ and see a list of commands.

OperServ: The OperServ service is restricted to Network Services Staff, it allows them to easily control users, channels and connections to the network, with much better organisation and much less difficulty. Users should not attempt to use OperServ - ALL use of OperServ (or attempted use) is logged.

Sentinel: Sentinel is a BotServ psuedo-bot that automatically joins all registered channels, users can use BotServ to see what they can do with this bot in their channel. Any request to have Sentinel removed will be accepted.

Special Thanks to; triv, Phantom, dracorex, BadIdeaBear, maskedlua and Belle - you guys have assisted so very much with not only the IRC network but infrastructure and configurations that made it possible. You were always available, at all hours to assist me in the management and maintenance of the entire network. You all are, and always will be apart of my IRC family.
