@moonman that would be the plan
@the_gayest_doggo @artist_ocular Sure, you could configure Nickserv to cause the IRCd to drop any connection from an unidentified user after a few minutes and not allow them to join any channels, but I have never seen this type of configuration on an IRCd before.
IMO running an IRCd that has regular users requires more active management than Synapse (Matrix) or Mastodon.
@bikecurious cause im a curious doggo!!
@the_gayest_doggo Curious about what?
@bikecurious read the original post you silly bikey boy!
@the_gayest_doggo I'm still trying to grasp any reasoning for wanting to make an IRCd, I've asked a few questions and gotten diversions instead :/
Don't want you to stand up an IRCd, have people use it, then end up dealing with critical administrative tasks that don't end up getting done cause you have higher priorities.
whomst.dog is a small instance with a friendly and welcoming userbase. PM the admin for questions about instance blocks, the admin will serve you with a copy of the list and may reconsider a block if emailed by a user on a blocked instance.
