One of the largest IRC
networks still in existence with a laid back administration that provides minimal services but doesn't overwhelm the users with hundreds of *Serv bots. The primary service is X, the channel bot, who provides many options for managers and ops alike.
Undernet is very involved with its users, and holds frequent classes and interesting discussions or interviews in the #class channel. Channels are very hard to register, and therefore if a channel is registered, then it is garunteed to be lively. It has frequent netsplits, but not quite to the caliber of EFnet
, making it a much more solid network. In general, the help channels on Undernet are often nicer and more humble than EFnet, but still don't be surprised if you get banned for an arbitrary reason. There's always room for improvement.
