We have recently become aware that many of our users are unaware of the DALnet Acceptable Use Policy. This policy has been in existance for some time now, if you have not read it we encourage you to do so.

DALnet is currently the largest Internet Relay Chat (IRC) network, with over 140,000 concurrent users and 600,000 registered users, from all over the world.

Started in 1994 as an alternative to the overburdened networks of the time, DALnet has grown into a vibrant community and is widely regarded as the most "friendly" of the major IRC networks. DALnet pioneered nickname and channel registration, giving users the right and ability to govern their online experience, without the fear of channel takeover, impersonation or harassment.

DALnet has always considered the well being of its users to be of paramount importance. This ideology has led to the development of extensive online and offline help systems over the years for users in need of assistance. From mailing lists to #OperHelp, DALnet's staff works diligently to serve its community of dedicated users.

DALnet's existence depends solely upon the goodwill of others. The equipment and bandwidth used to power each server is all donated as a service to the Internet community. All of DALnet's staff, helpers and coders alike, are volunteers who devote themselves selflessly to the good of the network and its users.

The future of DALnet depends upon these volunteers and the user base, which has always acted to support the DALnet IRC community. We feel many good things lie ahead and we look forward to seeing you online!
