Support Channel Ops who run legit chat chans in a real way

Postby CometBaby » Sat Apr 01, 2006 10:18 pm

I see where efnet is getting rid of the warez chans and trying to move away from the illegal activities and move more toward the chat channels. So long as you are on this line of thought, I think that you could help that along, by trying to lend those of us who are running legitimate and active chat channels, a bit more of a hand.

Right now there is no efnet sponsored organization to help channel ops and owners communicate with each other. Perhaps this could be solved by opening up a channel and/or establishing a forum here, for channel ops and administrators.

There is any number of things that we could discuss with each other as well as sharing information. For example, should you moderate your channel? Discussions could give the pros and cons. Some things to think about if you decide to moderate, and tips on running a moderated channel. People who are currently running moderated channels could contribute ideas they have found to be successful, and talk about what didn't work.

Another good example would be organized channel attacks. Remember when GNAA was raising heck on efnet? Someone from #mirc came over to talk to me (I am a co-owner of #politics) about how we were handling the problem. I had some good advice to give him which they were able to utilize. In this instance a channel op took the initiative to seek out another channel operator for advice and assistance. So yes, there is a need.

I have only mentioned two things, but obviously there are any number of ways we could help each other. Wouldn't it be nice if we had an official place to go? Why can't efnet support such an endeavor?

I am not just making a suggestion here. I am offering to help you get it started. I would be willing to moderate it for you. I work out of my home so I am available when people need me. What qualifies me? Boy do I have experience running a channel.

#politics is managed by FreeTrade and CometBaby (myself) and we run a successful, highly active, extremely popular, legitimate chat channel on efnet. We are not only big, but we are active 24/7.

#politics has had the same management for over a decade. No easy feat on efnet when you stop to think about it. Particularly for a channel as controversial as a political channel. hehe

If efnet is interested in doing something like this, I am offering to take a position of leadership to help you institute it. Obviously I love efnet. This is our channel home. It has been for over a decade and will continue to be. If you want to promote legitimate chat channels, this is a way to bring us together, so we can feel a part of the efnet family, rather than leaving us out there to fend for ourselves, on our own.

I have a stake in efnet too, and I would like to help in a way I know I can.

heh .. I never pay attention to April Fool and my husband gets me every year with something.

At any rate .. I'd like to do it, but I don't really expect anything to come of this. For whatever it is worth .. if efnet really is open to suggestions .. the offer is sincere.
