Shadow Terminal IRC


「CONNECT VIA GRID MATRIX ・ cyberdia.ddns.net:9000」

WARNING: 「Matrix Code」 is being logged at SERVER level.
I assume you understand the risks when jacking in.

// Cyberman Sigma.

You have reached the IRC Domain.
If you’re a power IRC User, you know EXACTLY what to do:
Point your 「IRC Clients」 to 「cyberdia.ddns.net:6667」
...If none of this ancient shit makes sense to you, then read on!

What is IRC?

IRC 【Internet Relay Chat】 is the oldest Chat System in The Matrix.
Unlike the Closed Dimensions of today, IRC dimensions are open.

IRC allows for discussions across multiple Channels
  The channels within IRC are prefixed with a 
  For example:
#football, #cats,   and #tech-support would be communities that
  Users within The Shadow Network might congregate within.
  You may also have private, 1 on 1 conversations with The Users.
  You could even sprout your own communities within The Network
  Communities may also be forged beyond the Network from The Matrix


・ UNDERAGE - You must be 【13】 or have 【Parental Consent】 to be on The Matrix.
If you act like an underaged Nettizon, you may be banned.

・ COMMON SENSE - Treat others the way you wish to be treated.

How do I get into The Shadow Network?

Utilize the Terminal Link on the top.  This is to get your feet wet.
Alternatively, you could use Chrome IRC to get in aswell.
However, for the best experience, it is recommended to use an IRC Client.

There are many free IRC Clients available.
Some of the most popular ones include:
mIRC and Hexchat

There’s also an embedded IRC Client on Cyberman’s Terminal at 「cyberdia.ddns.net:9000」
However, The Lounge client lacks many features that other IRC Clients have.
I heavily suggest using a full IRC Client, for the best experience.


Because IRC has ancient commands, this documentation is for newer users.
This documentation is a WORK IN PROGRESS and is not final yet!
/join #CHANNEL - Joins a channel on the Shadow Network.
/part #CHANNEL - Leaves a channel on the Shadow Network.
/me TEXT - Action messages. These are usually done in third person.
/nick Nickname - Changes your Alias within IRC.
/quit [REASON] - Disconnects you from the Shadow Network.


Terminal Guardians are there to maintain Network Order.

They do not have Operator powers, but are generally trusted.

Some IRC Clients allow you to type using a 16 color pallete.
By incorporating colors into our text, our writing turns into this.


Pretty kewl, huh?
Once you master a few short commands, you too will be typing rainbow colors!
Lets look at some commands:

CTRL+K is used for Colored Text
CTRL+B is used for Bold Text
CTRL+U is used for Underlined Text
CTRL+R is used for Reverse Text
CTRL+I is used for Italic Text
CTRL+O resets your input back to normal.

Color Command 「Shortcut」:CTRL+K(TEXT),(BACKGROUND)Message.
Here’s a list of colors to choose from.
The commands above can be combined, like in Discord.
