X (Channel) Registration Changes

Changes to Channel Registration on IRC4Fun (Effective Immediately) – Due to the number of channels registered that violate one or more of the IRC4Fun Services Guidelines or IRC4Fun AUP, as well as the large number of register-and-abandon channels; we’ve changed the way channels are registered on IRC4Fun.
From now on, all registration requests will be reviewed by a Services Committee member before being granted the privilege of CService Registration (X). If the channel violates one or more of the Services Guidelines or IRC4Fun Acceptable Use Policy; it will be promptly rejected. Additional guidelines may be added in the near future.
Users will use the REGISTER command with X as normal, however until the channel is reviewed; X will not join and the channel will remain a W (Chanfix) channel.
If you have any questions, or if your channel is taking a while to be reviewed; please /join #Help and ask there, or create a Support Ticket
Below are examples of the new processes:
