EFnet ranks #3 out of 4,280 IRC networks indexed on
SearchIRC, with 26,959 average users over the last week.
User data is stored for the last week, and the average user count
determines network rank. The network rank is updated every hour. The lower a network rank, the higher it stands. #1
is the largest IRC network.
EFnet currently ranks higher than 99.95% of the IRC networks listed on SearchIRC, with 5.036% of the total IRC population.
Ties: In the rare event of two or more networks having the same average score, the tie is broken by taking into
account network freshness ratings (how recently SearchIRC has connected to the given network). If that is also a tie, we
then fall back and rank the tied networks alphabetically. Just keep in mind that a tie will be extremely rare, and a tie on
freshness even more rare :)
