Take a look at a current list of servers or learn about the UnderX's own
unique IRC server software and services to help limit netsplits and abuse.
You can maintain and protect your own channel by using UnderX's Channel Service.
You can also enquire about your channel or the X bot within the #Cservice channel.
It has been a great pleasure serving you all through these years.
We hope to continue this relationship in the forthcoming years with great reverence and respect.
The UnderX Channel Service Committee (CSC) was created back in 1995 as a way to provide channel stability and help prevent takeovers. This is accomplished through the use of X, which helps maintain all registered channels on the network and give channel managers an easy means to keep up with both a channel userlist and banlist.
You can learn more about the CSC, register your channel, or download information about X at the Channel Service Committee website. Or, if you're on the UnderX, just type /join #cservice and ask one of the many helpers in the channel. The CSC provides a valuable and extremely comprehensive service to UnderX users, so be sure to take advantage of all that they have to offer the UnderX community.
The UnderX Channel Service features an online session for channel managers, channel operators, or anyone interested in learning more about X called OpSchool. This is a special moderated session that lasts approximately 45 minutes and is staffed by tutors skilled in X commands.
The UnderX User Committee conducts a weekly class for those new to the UnderX and IRC called, appropriately enough, #Class. This project was begun to teach new users basic IRC commands and provide a condensed introduction to the UnderX and its many available resources. #Class is held every Friday at 19:30 Eastern (Saturday at 00:30 GMT) and every Sunday at 11:30 Eastern (Sunday at 16:30 GMT) In the UnderX's #Class channel. The session lasts approximately one hour and is presided over by "Professor", the teaching bot, and several tutors - who provide answers to user's questions. The session is moderated and invite-only, so be sure to arrive a few minutes early. To get more information on all that the #Class Project has to offer, or to request a log of a recent session, visit the #Class website or write class@UnderX.org.
We would like to thank the following organisations for helping to sponsor the UnderX and for providing the many different aspects used for the network's structure and other services.
The Coder Committee concentrates on the continued development of the IRC protocol with the goal of making the UnderX a more efficient chat network.
The Channel Service Committee provides an easy method for channel registration in order to maintain channel stability, prevent takeovers, and manage a banlist and userlist. The CSC also hosts special online classes for users to learn the ins and outs of channel management.
The UnderX Routing Committee (R-Com) reviews current IRC servers and evaluates new applications for servers in the United States, Canada and Europe. The goal is to link only the most qualified servers in order to keep the network as efficient and lag-free as possible.
The User Committee acts as the sounding board for thoughts and proposals from UnderX users. It is also the supervising body for both the Documents Project (formerly Doco-Com) and the Promotions Project (formerly PR-Com). If you have an idea that you think will make the UnderX a better network, this committee wants to hear from you.

"I was completely amazed as I lurked in the channel and watched what was happening. Eventually I started answering questions for people, learning more and more about UnderX as I went along. I was hooked."
After falling into the Rabbit Hole of IRC some years ago, I got involved in learning and helping and forgot how to get out. I like helping users and solving problems. I observe the changing society of IRC in relation to the real world and understand both a little better
I enjoy learning new things and helping others (searching for answers to questions I'd otherwise never ask).
