CollectiveIRC is run professionally by highly experienced staff with most of the senior staff having more than 10 years of administrative experience! Many other networks can not claim such experience, even collectively. Our EB has more than 40 years of collective experience to draw from. With a diverse array of networks and policies to drawn from! All staff members are "hired" with verifiable skills or trained on an individual bases prior to assignment and all experience is verified or discounted.
We also have our own coding team to fix bugs and add new features prior to being submitted to our software's base maintainers so fixes are applied to our software before it's even submitted to external sources for review.
We pride ourselves with our open environment with liberal rules as well as our democratic system that even prevents senior staff from taking singular control over the network. All aspects of control such as DNS, Services, Websites .. etc are divided between the senior admins in a manner that prevents anyone of them from hi-jacking the network. This provides a stable environment and drasticlly reduces political drama as seen on most other networks.
All major issues are voted on by an Executive Board and opinions are excepted by all IRCops and server admins. This allows all staff to atleast voice their opinion on all matters. Even our userbase is welcome to voice their opinion on their concerns and all sane/logical suggestions are reviewed and/or voted upon as if they were suggested by the staff making CollectiveIRC a user friendly and user oriented chat environment .
We also offer longevity based rewards not found on most networks such as:
- Channel specific website and forum hosting with the channel founder having access to moderate and assign their own moderators!
- Non-expiring user accounts and/or channels
