So You Think You'd like to Link to ExodusIRC.com??

The following will be considered when an application is sent in:

  1. DO WE KNOW YOU? - If you are unknown and have not been around so that we can speak to you for at least a month (30 days) do not bother trying to link.

  2. We haze people here. It's part of our "humor", if you can't handle being abused in a fun manner don't bother reading further.

  3. We will of course delink you if you turn out to be to sensitive about our linking policies and our welcoming procedures.

  4. If you can't stand to be asked why/who/what etc about yourself including being questioned on anything you do, don't bother hitting send on the email, this isn't the place for people who can't take questions.

  5. We will point out mistakes in the application. If you wish to avoid this then don't make these mistakes.

  6. We don't need servers, we have enough already, if you don't have clients to offer and just want to link a server to be "COOL" then just keep browsing and go find someplace else. We will link you if we want to, we don't NEED anyone else. We need users. You don't have users? Go get some then think about a link, after you have been around for a while, see 1.

  7. If you have any doubts as to your qualifying for any of the above or anything else that we dish out, then you shouldn't be linking.

  8. Any Opers or Co-Admins you bring with you MUST also be known, Don't come here and get all cozy and expect to bring a bunch of people we don't know with your server, they have to do the same things you do!

Please review these requirements before reading further. If you don't think you're for us, you probably aren't. If you had spent time with us, you would already know this and will or will not continue with this application.

ExodusIRC Server Application

Updated November 19, 2001

In the information below you will find a brief summary of Server Administrator/Co-Administrator Duties, O-Line Guidelines, our Linking Procedure, and the Server Link Application. Please read this carefully, and be sure to fully complete the application, as incomplete applications are instantly rejected.

NOTE: By submitting an Application, you, your co-administrators, and operators agree to abide by the Network Operator Policy dated November 18, 2001 and as may be amended in the future. You must read and understand all guidelines as stated in that policy prior to submitting your application.

Server Administrator / Co-Administrator Duties

  1. Maintain your server's IRCd including all c/n/u/o lines. Updates to the IRCd must be in place within 48 hours of the notification of their availability.

  2. Add or remove operators on your server as needed and in accordance with the Operator Lines guidelines for Hubs (if applicable) and Leafs. The candidate must be a regular user on your server, and have been present in #Services or #offourmeds for a reasonable length of time to get to know the network and for us to get to know them.

  3. Notify operlist@exodusirc.com at least 24 hours PRIOR to adding local or global operators to your server.
    • Include their name, e-mail address, and alternate nick.
    • A 30-day evaluation period will follow, at which time the operator may be removed if the ServerAdmin or NetAdmin deems their progress insufficient. The oper will be voiced in #Services during the 30 day evaluation period.
  4. Be familiar with ALL ChanServ/NickServ/MemoServ/WebServ functions and be ready and willing to assist clients and other operators with matters pertaining to their use.

  5. Assist clients in #Services as needed.

  6. Manage the operators who are based on your server. Operators on your server who misuse privileges or commands or cause interpersonal problems that affect the network overall will reflect on your server.

  7. Global operators may be promoted to Co-Administrator or replace the Administrator only with prior knowledge of NetAdmin and only once that person has been a global operator on that server for at least 90 days.

Your server may be juped if the above requirements cannot be fulfilled.


Operator Lines

IRC operators on a server will be added under the following guidelines.

  1. Operators will be chosen from regular users on your server.
  2. All potential operators must receive a copy of these guidelines as well as Network Operators Guidelines prior to granting of an operator line.
  3. All potential operators must attend an oper etiquette-training course.
  4. The criteria below for Hubs/Leafs must be considered when adding an operator.
Hubs - A hub may only be designated as such by NetAdmin

May have an Administrator and Co-Administrator (IRCd Access may only be granted to the Administrator or Co-Administrator)

1 (one) global operator for those with 30 max. users or less.

1 (one) addition global operator per 10 max. users over 30. (NetAdmins do not count towards your global limit)

Unlimited local operators (Pool to draw from for new globals as your users increase)

Leafs - Any server not specifically designated a hub by NetAdmin

May have an Administrator and Co-Administrator (IRCd Access may only be granted to the Administrator or Co-Administrator)

1 (one) global operator for those with 30 max. users or less.

1 (one) addition global operator per 10 max. users over 30. (NetAdmins do not count towards your global limit)

Unlimited local operators (Pool to draw from for new globals as your users increase)

NetAdmin reserves the right to request removal of any IRC operator that violates policy as stated in this document, the server application, or the operator application.
