SwiftIRC is a IRC
network primarily used by runescape
players, popularised by being included in the switchswift custom game client.
The network usually has over 10,000 active users at any one time. The channel plays host to a different set of users than normal IRC networks, demographically the users tend to be younger than typical networks due to the runescape link.
Beside runescape, swiftirc is famous for it's mirc scripting community found at #msl, this is partly due to the number of 'mirc bots' available on the network.
<kyle> Hey lets go on swiftirc, I want to use a bot to check my runescape stats.
<kh> okie, wanna use ikick or darwin?
network, formerly known as FluxIRC. It wasn't really all that popular until it became the default server for SwiftSwitch, a client used to play the RuneScape
game that comes with its own built-in IRC
chat. A nice server with plenty of people to chat with. Its only flaws are some of the people who are located there. For example, the people who think IRC was only created for RuneScape
players, the people who connect on from another client (usually mIRC
) just to brag about how smart they are because they connected to the server using another client, and finally, the people who are just idiots. (lol wots evry1 age up in dis chat yo yo yo yea!!!!) Playing RuneScape
isn't compulsory to be able to talk to people on the SwiftIRC network, so drop by when you have the time. There's around 6000+ users and it's still growing slightly.
Yesterday, I connected to the SwiftIRC network. It was nice, except for the guy who kept on bragging about how he connected from mIRC, the guy who kept on referring to the chat as "runescape chat", and that person who kept on asking me for "buttsecks...."
SwiftIRC is also known as an alternative word for "kiddie". SwiftIRC also relates to "script kiddie". The only real adult on the network seems to be "Jeffrey".
Look at that swiftirc!
