As you may be aware, we’re in the process of adding a new administrative feature to the network, the group contact. Group contacts allow projects and groups to maintain an unambigous “real world” contact list for communication with freenode network staff and allow them to take advantage of such features as project cloaks for their participants. We’ve added a description of the group contact role and made changes to the notes on the right-hand side of the group contact form, to clarify our newly-codified commitment in the area of channel ownership. Just click on Group Registration on the nav bar to the left, to find out more about how they work, and to access the form. Please let us know if you have any questions, and thank you for using the network!
Hi all. We’ve made two changes recently of which you should be aware.
- We’ve added a channel ownership policy item to the freenode policy page. It’s a key clarification to our channel ownership policies and you should take a look.
- The ChanServ setting URL has been changed to URI and it is now displayed as Contact URI. Staff will treat that URI as an assertion of ownership of the channel by the project whose website you point to, and it may be used to help resolve ownership disputes.
Thank you for using freenode!
