Acceptable Use Policy
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 and security. 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 owner you are responsible for the channel and seeing that your
channel users and ops follow all Channel Service guidelines, so READ BEFORE YOU
Channel registration application is not a right, but a privilege granted subject
The Channel Service Guidelines approved by Beirut admins require that "The
Channel Service Committee will only register 1 channel per USER (this means
user, not account or e-mail address)." Consequently, you can only register one
channel on Beirut.
Channel Services (CS) will not be provided for any channel involved in child
pornography, trading, 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 lending, shell or bnc (vhosts) channels. If we find
these activities are predominant in your channel after registration, we will
permanently remove CS from the channel.
The Channel Service admins do reserve the right to reject any channel
registration for any reason that they deem valid.
Channel Services regularly monitors all registered channels for activity. If a
registered channel is not active, CS will be removed from the channel. Channel
owners are expected to be active in the channel. If you are gone for more than
30 days, CS can be removed from the channel or in very active channels, a new
channel owner can be elected by the high level ops (Co-owners and Managers). If you know you are going
to be gone for more than 3 weeks, set urself on vacation /msg NS vacation.
Commands are available on the web page and #Service is there to help you.
You need to have 5 DIFFERENT supporters (people, not just 5
different accounts) to register a channel. Make sure all your supporters are
active members of your channel and that they all agree to support you as
Note that Helpers and IRCOps are not considered as supporters.
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.
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, whether you are
there or not, can result in CS being removed from the channel.

It is only applying to register.The entire registration process takes about 3
days. Should your application be rejected for any reason, it cannot be altered
by Channel Service. You must reapply using this form. You may wish to print the
completed form before submitting to retain the data.
