Channel Registration Guidelines

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

While just about any channel may be registered, we expressly 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 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. We don't get involved in channel-related matters nor set and police the standards of behavior and speech on individual channels. It is up to the channel owner, 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, please contact the channel owner to resolve the matter. To find the owner of a registered channel, using the following command on IRC:

/msg C INFO #channel

Note that 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.
