Q requests re-activated
From today, the Q requests have been officially re-opened for public access. To request Q, type "/msg R requestq #channel" on IRC, replacing #channel with your channel name.
The new request system works as an upgrade to L, you must already have L on your channel to request Q. When you issue the upgrade request, the chanlev on your channel will be copied from L to Q and L will be deleted.
To request Q, you must have an average of at least 100 users on your channel, measured over a 14 day period. There is also a web-based request system due to be launched shortly.
Thanks for your support

At present the requirements are set very high. This is to allow the system to be tested. The requirement will be reduced over the coming weeks.
The requirement for Q has now been reduced to 70 users, measured over a 14 day period. We have also fixed some bugs in the request system which caused false rejection of applications, these bugs were caused by funny nickname characters.
The requirement for Q has now been reduced to 50 users, measured over a 14 day period.
