In order to use the advanced features of ChanServ, HostServ or MemoServ, you MUST have identified to a nick you have registered.

Registering your channel

Required conditions:

  1. You must have a registered nickname.
  2. You must have operator status or above (@, &, ~) on the channel.
    • Note: You will receive operator status automatically when you join an empty, unregistered channel.
    • Note: If there are idlers in the channel, and the channel is not registered, you may /join #services for assistance; however, this is only in the case where none of the idlers have operator status.
  3. The channel must be unregistered. To check if the channel is registered or not: /msg ChanServ INFO #channel

If these conditions are met, you can register your channel using

/msg ChanServ REGISTER #channel password description

#channel The name of your channel.
password A channel password. Used to identify a user as the channel's founder. This password can be shared to provide "almost" founder-level control of the channel with someone else.
description This is a description of your channels purpose, it is not the same as a channel topic. This will be seen when someone uses the INFO command for your channel (as shown above) and can be changed at any later date.

What's next?

So, you followed the commands above and successfully registered your channel, but what's next?


You can request a BotServ bot. First use the command /msg BotServ BOTLIST or look at the Botserv list page to see the bot nicks and choose one that you like.

Then, to assign a botserv bot, use /msg BotServ ASSIGN #channel bot where #channel is the name of the channel you are assigning it to and bot is the bot you are assigning.

Now that you have a bot assigned, visit BotServ commands for more information.
