BBSnet attempts to make a better network for its users than the other
IRC networks available. As such, it offers user services.
These services (ChanServ, NickServ,
and MemoServ) allow users to do many things that have to
be accomplished with separate channel bots on other networks.
BBSnet's channel registration service, ChanServ, allows users to
register their channel instantaneously, giving them freedom to use their
channel without fear of a takeover. In addition, ChanServ does not sit in
the channel, as it can change modes from outside the channel, therefore it
doesn't clutter the channel list.
BBSnet's MemoServ allows users who have registered their nicknames to
send short memos to other users, even when the other user is offline.
Also, users can send memos to registered channels, and it will go to all
the ops of a channel, providing an effective method of communication.
BBSnet's nickname registration service, NickServ, gives users the option
of registering their nickname, with no wait, and preventing other users
from using the nickname. Registering a nickname also allows a user to
receive memos with MemoServ.
