Registering your Channel

  1. Register your nickname. First of all, register your nick (or identify).
  2. Join the channel. If you haven't already, join your channel, by typing /join #channel_name, changing "channel_name" to your channel's name. If it's not already taken yet, you should get a star (this means you're an op).
  3. Register with ChanServ. The first user who joins an empty unregistered channel gets op status and can register the channel with ChanServ. ChanServ is a bot that helps with these sorts of things. Just type /msg ChanServ register #channel_name <password> <description> (without the brackets). Where <password> is some password you make up. This is your channel registration password, it should be strong and kept secret. <description> is a short description about your channel's purpose or usage. Make sure that you identify and visit your channel every ten days or so, otherwise it might expire (see /cs help)
  4. Protect your channel. This step is optional. To prevent random people from joining your room, type /mode #channel_name +k <password>. You'll want this password to be different to the other password you had above (see also /cs help mlock ). If people want join your channel, they must type /join #channel_name <password> (or you must have &promptChannelKey=1 in the URL of your widget). If this is not persistent for you, type /msg chanserv set #channel_name mlock +k <password>
  5. Get help. If you get stuck you can also do /msg ChanServ help or /cs help for extensive help, or you could type /join #help and people will try and help you as well as they can. Multi-language documentation: .
