I started IRC in 2014. I was writing for a few online sites that paid writers to write. One of the sites was called Bubblews. Another was called Elite Writers. While on Elite Writers, anytime I would find a "bug" I would inform the guy that was in charge of taking care of the servers. He eventually created a channel on IRC just for that.
I became friends with the guy and eventually became his partner. My first network was called "FreshChat" with the nickname Christi. Then I moved to other networks like DalNet and Undernet. Then in 2016 I joined Freenode and EvilNet. I no longer join DalNet. I still have a connection on Undernet but I hate it there. I became a staff member on EvilNet and eventually linked my own server.
Around September or October of 2016 I joined Rizon and became a staff member there. I switched nicks on Rizon to Foxy and kept it.
I have been a staff member on several networks. Some never lasted for what ever reason. I have learned so many things while on IRC. So I am grateful I had a chance to be part of this huge community.
