Actually it's because I'm a dumbass and I had this problem like for an entire month since no answers ever seemed to show up in google when I googled the problem. Also because this sub-forum is really empty. And finally because all those damn IRC guides never mentioned the hostserv thing (which goes along with nickserv, chanserv and botserv and probably a million others I don't know or want to know about.)
