Helpful Tip:

Topicmasks are useful if you only want to change a section of the topic rather then the whole topic itself. For more information, type /msg ChanServ help set topicmask

Global Gamers is an IRC network that was formed on one simple concept: gaming should be fun! Whether you live for annihilating the competition in a free-for-all FPS or you sneak in a game of Solitaire when your friends aren't watching, we understand. We know games are there to be enjoyed, and we don't want to complicate something that's supposed to be a source of entertainment...

Update apologies - Posted by ButtaKnife on October 30, 2014

First, I want to apologize for the ChanServ issues that cropped up today in the wake of our privacy changes. The frequent ChanServ splits were caused by services crashing, but we didn't get any helpful crash logs, so it took us a while to track it down. It turned out to be a weird issue with how gcc 4.7 compiled the ChanServ source code, and switching back to an older version of gcc fixed the problem. Unfortunately, the crash only happened on some ChanServ commands, so we didn't catch it on our test network in the weeks leading up to the update.

Second, despite our planning, the update didn't go as smoothly as it could have, and we lost many channel modes and topics in the network restart. This is exactly the kind of disruption we try to prevent on Global Gamers, and I'm sorry that we completely missed the mark on this. We're going to be deploying some services updates in the near future to prevent that kind of data loss going forward.

Third, thank you all for being understanding! Despite the chaos, everyone has been in good spirits and the privacy change has been well-received. We want to provide you all with a good experience on IRC, so while we work on ensuring these kinds of issues don't crop up again, please let us know if you have any questions, concerns, or other feedback. You can get in touch with us in #GlobalGamers or by using our Contact page.

Privacy upgrade is done! - Posted by ButtaKnife on October 30, 2014

As of about 1AM PDT the network restart has been completed! We still have some behind-the-scenes maintenance to complete, but that shouldn't be anything noticeable. If you do see something that you think is weird, please let us know right away!
