Channel Service Committee Guidelines
CHANNEL SERVICE (X)
|*Per legal requirements:
Channel registration is not meant as a means to start a new channel. It is meant for previously established channels to have an opportunity to have some stability. If you are first starting a new channel, then just start using your channel and give it time to see if a reasonable userbase develops to justify registration. Your channel must be open and active for a reasonable amount of time BEFORE you apply.
As a Channel Manager/Founder you are responsible for the channel and seeing that your channel users and ops follow all Channel Service guidelines, so READ BEFORE YOU REGISTER.
The Channel Service Guidelines approved by IRC4Fun require that “The Channel Service Committee will only register 5 channels per USER (this means user, not nickname or e-mail address).” Consequently, you can only register five channels on IRC4Fun. Translated into language more appropriate to new services terminology, this means five channels per person, NOT account.
Channel Services (X) will not be provided for any channel involved in child pornography, the trading of warez or any copywritten material including mp3’s and dvd’s or the illegal trading of credit cards, passwords etc. We will no longer register any bot, shell or bnc (vhosts/cloaks) channels. If we find these activities are predominant in your channel after registration, we will permanently remove X from the channel.
While we do not disqualify use of free email services, if we find that certain email domains are being used to abuse our guidelines we will not allow that domain to be used again.
CService Staff reserve the right to reject any channel registration for any reason that they deem valid.
Channel Services regularly monitors all registered channels for activity. (One or more of the users on the access list must join the channel within 80 days.) If a registered channel is not active, X will be removed from the channel. Channel Managers/Founders are expected to be active in the channel. If you are gone for more than 2 months, X can be removed from the channel or in very active channels, a new Channel Manager/Founder can be elected by the high level ops. If you know you are going to be gone for more than 2 months, appoint a temporary manager/founder and have CService set them up. Please join #CService for assistance with this.
You need to have 1 SUPPORTER to register a channel. Make sure your supporter(s) are active members of your channel and that they all agree to support you as manager. If any of the people who you list as a supporter indicates they do not support your channel, you will lose the right to register any channel for 3 days or longer.
Your supporters must go to the web page and indicate whether they support your application or not. If all of your supporters do not respond within 2 days, your application will be rejected.
During the registration period, Channel Service will be checking to insure all your supporters are really users of the channel and are actually joining it.
Channels may not be slanderous, hateful or otherwise objectionable, as it violates the IRC4Fun Acceptable Use Policy (AUP)
You are responsible for your Channel Ops whether you are online or not. Please be careful who you give access to. Abuse by your channel ops/halfops whether you are there or not, can result in X being removed from the channel.
If you feel your channel qualifies for registration go to https://irc4fun.net/cservice/ and FOLLOW all instructions.
NOTE: Requesting Channel Registration does NOT constitute registering your channel. It is only applying to register. Should your application be rejected for any reason, it cannot be altered by CService. You must reapply using this form. You may wish to print the completed form before submitting to retain the data.
