Network Rules

The AceIRC Global Network is available to the public for the purposes of chatting, so long as no laws, local (US) or international, are violated. While it is possible to publicly connect to AceIRC, AceIRC is a privately owned and operated network. AceIRC reserves the right to refuse service to any person for any reason. Should you be denied access to our network, you may appeal your issue to the Network Administration by emailing appeals[at]aceirc[dot]org to request access.

The rules listed on this page are network wide and are enforced by the Network Staff. Failure to follow any of these rules may lead to a forced disconnect and/or temporary or permanent ban from the network. If you have questions about any of these rules, either join our IRC help chatroom (#help) or email info[at]aceirc[dot]org.
