We’ve updated IRC4Fun’s Services to better enforce the current expiration guidelines set in place and purge a lot of old (un-used) accounts.
- Nicknames will now expire if now used every 3 months (or 90 days)
- Channels will now be considered “Abandoned“ and up for grabs by other users if a Founder’s nickname expires or is dropped. (This is indicated by a Founder being ‘AbandonedChannel‘ in
/msg ChanServ INFO #Channel) The channel can now be requested by anyone on the flags or access list within 2 weeks of the channel being considered Abandoned. After 2 weeks, any user can request the channel. Once a request for a channel has been made; the topic on said channel will be changed indicating that ‘UserA’ has requested the channel. Any objections or support comments should be made in #IRC4Fun to Staff. After 2 days; if there are no legit objections, the channel will be given to the requesting user.
- Channels with no activity by any of the users on the access list will expire at 120 days.
- Abandoned Channels that have been abandoned for a year or more and not requested by another user will be purged at regular basis.
For asking for these “abandoned channels“, please ask in #IRC4Fun.
