Welcome to IRC Driven!

IRC Driven is a modern IRC indexing site and search engine. Originally started in 2006, inspired by the now defunct SearchIRC, and after several rewrites we are now evolving into a social media platform for IRC. Our goal is to bring awareness to IRC, help modernize the IRC platform and prove that IRC is not dead.

Network and channel owners, admins, operators and users can all interact with each other. Network and channels can be indexed, users can create profile, channels also get their own pages based on the network channel list. We provide several different tools to feature and highlight your network in many ways.

So what are you waiting for? Create an account, submit your network, add a quote, and create your profile today!

Another option is to remove all channels using the bot which causes the bot to quit, and then readding it. The bot will reconnect on a /kill which is honestly the easiest …

Remote Server Indexing

If your network supports remote commands, such as /lusers server.network.tld, /motd server.network.tld, etc then you can enable the Remote Commands option in your Network's options.
Doing so will give you a few extra options

  • You will be able to add servers not current indexed to be indexed. If the server never gets indexed it won't ever show up. You can do this from the Server page on your network when Remote Commands is …
