Anyone may create and register any kind of channel that abides by these rules. Channel owners have full authority over their channels, and they may appoint users to help them manage their channels or remove a user's access to a channel at their discretion. Channel owners may also choose what types of behavior are allowed and not allowed in their channels as they see fit. However, if a channel allows adult-only content, such as exchanging pornographic links or cybersex, the channel must have a clear warning in the topic noting that the channel is for adults-only.

The network staff does not get involved in channel matters except when necessary to enforce the network rules. Therefore, network operators should be considered no different from normal users, and may be kicked, muted, banned, or even appointed into a channel staff at the discretion of the channel's owner. If a network operator uses his powers to overstep his authority, please contact the [[oper abuse committee]] as soon as possible.

Violations of these network rules will be dealt with by the network staff. Penalties will be based on whether a user's actions were intentional or negligent, whether or not the user was warned against similar behavior or other prohibited behaviors in the past, and how the behavior affected other users and the network. Typical penalties include formal warnings, restrictions on network use, or a ban from the network.
