Without getting too far into it, I highly recommend the IRC server that Kuro-RPG uses. The short time the Split World Alliance has been using it, we've solved all our issues with IRC on previous servers. No more unexpected issues. We haven't even had any spam trolls yet! I do have one minor complaint about the lack of a bot server, but soon even that will be a thing of the past as I'll have a bot set up for our own.
Anyway, click here for access using the SWA tool today
! And remember to use good clean free-range organic Kuro-RPG ranksets!
