The correct title of this article is #mzx. It appears incorrectly here because of technical restrictions.
#mzx is an IRC channel on the SlashNET network, created by Diamond in 2000 on Espernet and currently owned by Terryn. From late 2000 to the present, it has been considered the official hub of the MegaZeux community on IRC.

Sometime in the summer of 2001, Diamond sold ownership of #mzx to Veloso; Veloso paid $60. Soon after, Veloso left the community and passed ownership to mOdac, known then as mordac.
mOdac's Ownership (2001-2004)
Terryn's Ownership (2004-2006) and Kuddy's Ownership (2006)
In August 2006, Terryn silently passed ownership of #mzx to Kuddy, as he found he could no longer maintain the channel for personal reasons. Kuddy edited the access levels that users need to perform specific tasks, allowing for some users to have special privileges such as autovoice, and, inspired by a similar system used in #megazeux during its AustNet days, implemented an "op-in-training" system which granted limited op privileges to users to judge how well potential op candidates handled their power before they were promoted to full ops. From that point on, "op-in-training" status has been the standard for all users who are to be given power in #mzx.
Two months later, in October 2006, Kuddy stated that he was burnt out on moderating #mzx, and stepped down as an operator, passing ownership of the channel to RoSS. Control switched back over to Terryn some months later. The channel moved to SlashNET in 2010 due to EsperNet's stability issues.
