Development Log – Week of 2015-02-22

Previous weeks development got off to a very slow start with a few minor mishaps & downtime, but I’m excited to kick this week off by announcing a few new updates:

Firstly, there is now a Support Forum where you can make support requests and request access to maintain networks. This will remain online, along with the Off-Topic forum if anyone actually cares to post there. I have also added paging support to the network browse/search page which should speed up page load times on mobile devices and over all improve the visual experience.

Some of the things that I had anticipated did not get done last week, and are now being moved over to this weeks agenda. Featured networks is going to be a big focus area, as well as continuing drafting out different ideas for an automated verification process for maintainers that provides both convenience and security (two things that don’t typically compliment each other).
Flags and categories is still going to be a huge focus considering that paging is now completed, and their implementation should now be simplified.

I don’t see all of this taking too long, if there is time at the end of the week I will try to fit in some of the cosmetic changes that have been requested before hitting some of the heavier development next week.


I am the founder, and lead developer, of IRC-Source. I started IRC-Source in May of 2014 because, although I don't use it as much any more, I still have a deep interest in IRC. I also carry a deep interest in web development, and wanted to write something that would be challenging, and allow me to bring my passions together in a way that would be interesting for others. I run a network called BuddyIM (, it's pretty cool, you should chill there.
