StarChat is a privately-owned and operated Internet Relay
Chat (IRC) network founded in June of 1997. There are no fees
whatsoever to use our chat services. StarChat staff donate
their expertise, time and equipment to maintain a stable and
pleasant chat environment. In exchange, we require that all
guests comply with our Acceptable
StarChat is a conservative, family-oriented network, and we
reserve all rights to deny access to anyone without warning or
explanation. Because we’re family-oriented, we ask that all
nicknames, channel names and channel topics be kept “Rated-PG”.
Chat client parameters such as Identd and Full Name fields
should also be kept appropriate in consideration of other
guests. Harassment of others, advertising, cloning, flooding,
or willful disruption of any channel is not tolerated and
grounds for immediate and permanent removal from the StarChat
StarChat has a variety of channels ranging from general
open chat, roleplaying groups, support and meeting rooms,
software development, to various clubs and associations. We
allow some channels, within reason, for sensitive topics and
issues. StarChat strictly prohibits any channel, registered or
not, for the intent of harassment, illegal trade of licensed
software, or trade of pornographic files. We cooperate fully
with all federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies in
the investigation of illegal activity.
StarChat supports WebTV and MSN TV guests via WebServ as
well as our IRC chat interface. WebTV and MSN TV guests can
perform the same functions as PC users on the StarChat
network. Web-based chat is also available to those PC guests
who do not wish to download a chat client. Customized chat
clients are available for StarChat with StarPIRCH
or add the Graphical User Interface StarHELP
to your existing mIRC, pIRCh or vIRC.
StarChat has a friendly and helpful staff of IRC Operators
available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We can assist you
in the registration of your nickname, channel or with
questions about using StarChat Services. We also intervene
when there is a violation of the StarChat Acceptable
Use Policy. StarChat leaves the channel administration to
the discretion of the channel founder. StarChat does not
monitor the content of channels, nor will we become involved
in channel disputes. If you are kicked or banned from a
channel, we recommend you contact the channel founder.
We welcome your questions or comments about our network.
