The Undernet IRC Network

Undernet is the IRC Network I use. I've provided basic information and links for your convenience. You may join my chat channel at any time. We offer help, not only with my scripts, but many topics such as Eggdrop, Windrop, mIRC, Windows and more. If you have questions don't hesitate to join us and ask.

Undernet was established in October 1992 by Danny WildThang Mitchell, Donald WHIZZARD Lambert, and Laurent _dl Demally as an experimental network. It was formed at a time when many small IRC networks were being started. Many of these smaller networks were unable to sustain their online presence. It is notable as being the first network to use time stamping to curb abuse. In 1994, Undernet was able to survive an ongoing series of flame wars and remains one of the largest and most popular Networks you'll find today.

As of 2007, Undernet is the second largest publicly monitored IRC network, with approximately 19 servers connecting over 35 countries and serving more than 1,000,000 people weekly and is staffed and run entirely by volunteers.

Undernet Channel Service

The Undernet Channel Service is run by the Channel Service Committee. A group of volunteers, CSC gives users the opportunity to to manage a channel by registering it with Undernet and being provided with the X bot. The purpose of this service is to help users maintain and protect their established channels. An application is required with a minimum of 10 registered users to be considered. Registration excludes any channels which include child pornography, the trading of warez or any copy written material including mp3's and dvd's or the illegal trading of credit cards, passwords, ect.. Channel Services regularly monitors all registered channels for activity. If a registered channel is not active or in violation of the stated guidelines, X will be removed from the channel.

Undernet does not offer nick registration, however, The Undernet Channel Service allows users to register a username. From the main Cservice web page choose Web Interface and register.
