We will be hosting a Christmas Event again from December 21st, 2022 to January 2nd, 2022 by giving out colored vHosts to registered nicks. To participate in the event:

  1. Register your nick (/msg NickServ help register);
  2. Identify to the registered nick;
  3. Join #xmas and enjoy!

Besides just the regular colored vhosts you will have a chance of winning a special colored vhost by staying in the #xmas channel. A random user will be drawn every 15 minutes and that user will get a special version of colored vhost of the day, i.e. underlined (50% chance), bold (40% chance) or both (10% chance).

If for some reason you want to take off the colored vhost, you can do one of the following:

  • If you have a vHost assigned to your nick, activate your vhost (i.e. "/msg HostServ on")
  • "/mode your_nick -x" (then "/mode your_nick +x" if you want to remask your host)
  • Reconnect to the network without rejoining #xmas

A few things to note:

  • Colored vhosts are temporary and will be gone once you take it off or disconnect from the network. Simply rejoin #xmas during the event to regain it.
  • We will give out predefined colored vHosts only which will rotate daily. Do NOT ask for a custom one.
  • Do NOT abuse the system or you will be banned from the network for 7 days.

For channel operators
If someone is abusing color vhosts in your channel, join #services and we will assist you there. All colored vhosts of a certain day will follow the same pattern so you can also choose to forbid it in your channel altogether, for example:


You can place the following ban accordingly:

/mode #channel +b *!*@*merry.christmas*

Have fun, enjoy the event, and Merry Christmas!
