So, you want to register a channel (chat room) here on DareNET? Great! All registered channels get C, our channel services bot, which provides a number of both useful and powerful features to aide channel owner's in maintaining and protecting their channel.

Just about any channel may be registered; however, we specifically disallow registering the following types of channels:

  • Channels that violate our Community Guidelines, or other network policies;
  • File trading / warez channels;
  • 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

Our staff are not permitted to get involved in channel-related matters.

Each channel is its own micro-community and sets the standards for what is acceptable there. Users and channel owners alike do not want us to set and police the standards of behavior and speech on individual channels, and so it is up to the channel owner and his or her 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.

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

Registering Your Channel

Please note, you must have a registered DareNET account before you may register a channel. If you do not have an account, you may register one by going here.

Check availability

Once you are ready to register your channel, simply use the following command:

/msg C REGISTER #your-channel

You will be prompted by C to provide back a confirmation code. Once you have done so, you'll be granted ownership of your newly registered channel!

Example:

You: /msg C REGISTER #darenet
-C- To complete registration, use /msg C REGISTER #darenet 27ce108a
-C- By registering #darenet, you agree to abide by our channel registration guidelines,
-C- which can be found at http://www.darenet.org/channel_registration
You: /msg C REGISTER #darenet 27ce108a
-C- You now have ownership of #darenet.
