ObsidianIRC was founded towards the end of 2011 and the start of 2012 by Jordan and Ishaq. ObsidianIRC was launched originally on Unreal and Atheme, but was then changed to Anope, and then shortly afterwards back to Atheme again. ObsidianIRC was launched to provide the home channel for GeekBouncer but we soon realised the potential and changed our business plan. We decided to linkup with a Janus community to bring activity to the network. The launch of ObsidianIRC occured after the split from Infinity-IRC.
