About Us

ArloriaNET was originally formed in 2007 when its founder, Sheepeep, created an IRC network as a technical support method for ConvoPad, an image-based messaging tool. Both proved popular, and outgrew their original intent. Nowadays, ArloriaNET is a growing community with regular, dedicated members.

Servers

There are currently four servers running ArloriaNET, each run by a different IRC operator. All servers on the network support SSL connections on port 6697, as well as regular connections on port 6667.




Sinclair Server

Sinclair

sinclair.irc.arloria.net     Port 6667     SSL Port 6697 / 8080

The Mortuary


ArloriaNET has had a large list of server contributions in the past, they are listed here out of respect to their administrators.
Please report inaccuracies to Serio in #welcome


Fingal

The original server that helped start ArloriaNET, back in 2007. As demand grew, the home-run server had to be upgraded
(2007-2008) [Owner: Sheep]


Dakota/Bookshelf

The first server to be connected to Fingal was Dakota. It was run by book, until it eventually got delinked due to a dispute with comcast.
(2007-2008) [Owner: book]


Freyja

A brief linking that had to be discontinued due to the owner's other commitments.
(2007-2007) [Owner: t0m]


Ayane

Ayane was the first and only Mini-ITX machine to ever be linked to ArloriaNET. It ran for a year until its owner had to leave.
(2007-2008) [Owner: Lulolwen]


Sorcerer/Magician/Citadel

Run as a series of related servers, these three were eventually relegated into the background before being disconnected entirely.
(2007-2010) [Owner: Cat]


Petrina/Anacostia

Provided by Mikouen, the former server was abandoned due to issues with the host, and the latter due to funding issues.
(2008-2009) [Owner: Mikouen]


Deltic

Deltic had a very brief stint on the network and was provided by FileTrekker, who ultimately had to disconnect it due to reliability issues.
(2008-2008) [Owner: FileTrekker]


Tonmatsu

Years after Freyja, Tonmatsu was set up in a well-intentioned attempt to bring another server to ArloriaNET. But as fate would have it, the host chosen was unreliable and the link had to be severed within just a few days. It holds the record for the shortest link in network history.
(2009-2009) [Owner: t0m]


Alycidon

The second server provided by FileTrekker, it eventually outgrew what it was being used for an had to be delinked.
(2010-2010) [Owner: FileTrekker]



Overlord

The third server provided by FileTrekker, even more powerful than Deltic or Alycidon. It was the gateway server for all connections made through the Flash client.
(2010-????) [Owner: FileTrekker]


Crimson

Run by Nathan to replace some dead leaves.
(????-????) [Owner: Nathan]


Lennier

Named to serve unconditionally, but notorious for its involvement in netsplits, Lennier was eventually disconnected in favour of Sinclair.
(????-2015) [Owner: Sheep]


Vir

Fourth server by FileTrekker. Had a very long run, despite some DNS trouble. Eventually got delinked in favour of Mallard.
(????-2016) [Owner: FileTrekker]
