running a channel
A person who joins an empty and unregistered channel is granted temporary Operator status. This does not guarantee their ownership of the channel. They need to
REGISTER the channel with
ChanServ to gain ownership of it.
To register a channel, you must be an Operator on the channel. You can do this by typing
/cs register #channelname in the channel. You will be prompted to enter a password for the channel. This password is used to identify yourself as the owner of the channel. You can change the password at any time by typing
/cs set #channelname password newpassword.
