CHANNEL SERVICE (X)
Acceptable Use Policy

USERNAMES (or "ACCOUNTS")

*Per legal requirements:

  • US COPPA Laws require that United States Clients must be 13 years of age or older to register with X.
  • EU Laws require that EU Clients must be 16 years of age or older to register with X.
You may register up to 2 (two) Usernames (or "Accounts"). One account for you, and one for your bot/bouncer/znc. (If applicable)
You may not register more than 2 (two) usernames, and each one must utilize a unique (and valid) email address. Users who are found to be registering or using more than 2 usernames risk all of their usernames being suspended or purged.

CHANNEL REGISTRATION

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 username (or "account").

Channel Services (X) will not be provided for any channel involved in hacking, discrimination or harassment, child pornography, the trading of warez or any copywritten material including file-sharing, mp3’s and dvd’s or the illegal trading of credit cards, passwords etc.

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. (Channel Managers are expected to LOGIN to X and join their channels regularly. Channel Managers are required to LOGIN to X and join their channels at least once per 60 days to be considered active.)
If a registered channel is not active, X will be removed from the channel.
If you are gone for more than 2 months, X can be removed from the channel or in active channels, a new Channel Manager (or "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 and have CService set them up. Please join #CService for assistance with this.



SUPPORTERS


At this time, we do not require that you have any Supporters, though we do recommend it.

NOTE

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, you may apply by clicking here.

NOTE: Requesting Channel Registration does NOT constitute registering your channel. It is only applying to register.
