hackint is a Internet Relay Chat network for the hacker community worldwide, however everyone is welcome to use this service.
For client to server communication we encourage everyone to use TLS encryption; Our servers require TLS to communicate amongst each other.
There are two possibilities.
You can either register the channel and remove the autoop (-O) flag from every user. This way, however, some users will still have more control over the channel than others, namely the ones on the channel's access list.
Instead of registering the channel, you can remove your chanop flag immediately after joining the channel. You will never be able to regain chanop status unless you get everyone in the channel to leave.
If you do not immediately deop yourself in the channel, ChanFix will take note of the fact and automatically reop some people if the channel becomes opless. You cannot turn a channel with chanops into an opless channel, unless you register it with ChanServ.
It means that you need to connect to the network via SSL.
If you are unable to connect to the hackint IRC network, check the error message you get when you try to connect. Please use the e-mail address specified in the error message (if any) to get in touch with us.
Yes. To register your nickname, enter
/msg nickserv help register
and follow the instructions given there. You need not specify a valid email address. The email address is required only if you forget your nickserv password (but passwords are obsolete anyway; you can identify via an SSL client certificate).
To register your channel, you first need a registered nickname. Then, enter
/msg chanserv help register
and follow the instructions.
You are welcome to create any kind of channel, as long as it does not violate German, Dutch or US law (the three countries in which you will find hackint servers).
I'm sorry, no; that's what NickServ, ChanServ and GroupServ are here for.
They do, after 365 days of inactivity.
Nicks expire after 365 days of inactivity. However, if a nick has not been used for a while, we might to decide to drop it earlier based on various non-disclosed factors. Just join #hackint and ask. Note that nicks will never be dropped if unused for 12 weeks or less.
Just join #hackint and talk to us there.
Yes, you can. If you're identified with NickServ, do the following:
/msg hostserv take hackint/user/$account
Do not replace

However: If you want real anonymity, please use the Tor hidden services to connnect to hackint.
