About Chatopia

The Chatopia IRC Network was created in April 2013, although its roots go back much further than that. Previously known as DevishNet, which was a network originally intended to be development (programming) centric, we found that the vast majority of our channels and users had nothing to do with programming at all. Thus, the decision was made to re-brand to a more generic (and better-sounding) name, and Chatopia was born.

Some will argue that our roots trace all the way back to the now-defunct CoolChat IRC Network, and several of our long-time users and admins were on that network during its time.

The Chatopia IRC Network is open to the public, and anyone is welcome to connect, chat, or even create your own channel!
