[*] How long you have been on EFnet
Since January 27, 1992. I have no idea why I know this date; I figured it out once long ago. Yay for 15 years.

[*] Why you are still on EFnet (or why did you leave)
Still? I'm actually rarely active on IRC now (although I'm on all the time after work), and mostly keep to chans that my personal real-life friends are on, and my wife, and my daughter's godmother...

Oh, yeah, I also have this nasty habit of deleting spam posts from this forum and changing passwords and stuff. ;)

[*] What would keep you from leaving
Meh, I ain't going nowhere. ;)

[*] What would make you leave EFnet (if implemented)
Nothing. Not that I help admin a server or anything. ;)

[*] (new) What do you think would help attract more people to EFnet?

Some people think that anything we do will make us lose users. I think there is some wiggle room; I don't think we had many people leave after CHANFIX. I doubt something that makes life easier for users will make people leave.

I'm a little amused by the "FREEDOM" people versus the complaints about spammers and flooders. You can't have it both ways. Either we have to be a little invasive, or you're going to get spammed and flooded. As it is, a LOT of those things are automated now between dronemons, spamtraps, etc. We're damned if we do and damned if we don't.

As far as attracting people, whatever can be done to help make the user experience easier and more streamlined will likely do it. We can only do so much to make the user experience a good one within our pre-set limitations.

lazy..

[plat0nic] I have an idea.. how about a points system where spammers and other naughty people can be klined by majority vote automatically..

[plat0nic] Lets say there's an EFnet bot, users can do /msg klinebot user <mandatory>. The bot would then send back a random string that you have to send back to the bot to verify you're a real person.

[plat0nic] After the first "point", if after a set time the accused accumulates enough points, they're kllined from the server. This would take the load off opers, and especially helpful in cases where you can't find an oper, and some host continues to be disruptive.

[@doug] plat0nic: sort of like the craigslist flagging system.

[@strtok] and the kline couldn't be automatic, it'd have to be reviewed by someone

[plat0nic] I mean there *has* to be a way to make something less prone to abuse, but I just wanted to get the basic idea across

[@strtok] like doug says, a flagging system

2 things i would love to see implimented on EFNeT

NickServ would be a great feature to be added if it's not already been mentioned :)
I've had a few problems with people being banned from channels i'm opped in and just to get back at you they setup bots to take your nick if you timeout or your BNC resets , and as this is something IRC Ops won't do anything about then NickServ would be a great alternative to prevent it from the start.

Half-Op capability would be a nice addition also.

Other than that i think EFNet is great , thanx :)

ircing since '96.

Masked hostnames.
Just for being an op in the wrong channel, kickbanning the wrong little punk with a botnet up his sleeve, hell, idling at the same time as another little troll punk gets kicked from a channel...

"You deserved it" -- Er, no.

A +x would be a godsend to a number of users. Lets hash their hostname with a secret seed. There are solutions out there to still keep accountability for users with hostmasks but protect others. There are algorithms already in place on established networks that keep users accountable for their actions (k/b) but protect them from port scanning, ddosing, and other directed IP attacks. (modem-124.52.3.52-dhcp-client.isp.com -> modem-fGwman2ea-dhcp-client@isp.com or whatever)

There's a reason I'm hiding behind eggdrops to do my bans for me, and it's the little shits with their packet botnets.

<strong> on +x or similar.
