Channel Registration Guidelines

Registered channels get C, our channel services bot, which provides useful and powerful features to aide channel owners in maintaining and protecting their channel.

While just about any channel may be registered, we specifically prohibit registering the following types of channels:

  • Channels that violate our Community Guidelines;
  • Holding a channel for the sole purpose of preventing others from registering it;
  • and obviously, channels that encourage illegal activity

Channels found to be violating these rules will have C removed from the channel permanently.

DareNET staff involvement

Each channel on DareNET is its own micro-community and sets the standards for what is acceptable there. Our staff don't involve themselves in channel-related matters, and we don't set and police the standards of behavior and speech on indvidual channels; therefore, it is up to the channel owner and their channel operators and users to decide what is okay for their channel.

If you have a problem with the way a channel is being operated, we ask that you contact the channel owner to resolve the matter. To determine the owner of a registered channel, use the following command on IRC:

/msg C INFO #channel

Note, registration does not imply endorsement of a channel by DareNET.

Registering your channel

Before you can register a channel, there are a few prerequisites

  • You must have a DareNET account and be authenticated to it. If you don't have already have an account, you can create one here
  • The channel must not already be registered
  • You must have operator (@) status in the channel (automatically given to you if you join an empty unregistered channel)

Once you've met all the above requirements, simply use the following command on IRC to register the channel:

/msg C REGISTER #your-channel

That's it! Your channel has now been registered.


/msg C REGISTER #darenet
-C- You now have ownership of #darenet.
Should you still need assistance, stop by #Help on IRC.
