The Backstory

A group of friends had long socialized on the web through means of IRC, forums and mailing lists. United by common interests, this group formed a channel on FreeNode. FreeNode was the home of these friends for many years, serving their needs well; as time progressed, a need for finely-grained control arose as their knowlege of computing and familiarity with administration increased.

The Formation

In September of 2013 the seed of oshaberi was sown when the idea of running an IRC network was found to be appealing to the Kempei. Many issues were brought forth by the idea; the primary points of interest were: the name, the setup, the rules, and the -tan.

The Name

Many names were suggested, and a pool was formed that included options such as robolita, nyetnyet.net, chinmusic, saunternet, blagolith, stenoweb.net, and dahizzle.biz. After a few days of deliberation "oshaberi" was decided upon, with the intention of getting a Japanese domain; soon many members pitched in, and tsundoku was more than happy to procure the goods.
