Important note on clones

Posted by Zip on Friday 21 January 2000

If you plan on running more than 5 clones please contact #feds first. Otherwise you will be glined (banned from the network). Ask for trusted host and tell us the reason why you need it. (for eggdrops, it's a LAN or whatever..you get the picture).

Please log in to post comments.
Thats great if only the people in #feds were somewhat active... *temp angry*

Swats said on Sunday 23 January 2005

Oh no! I\'ve heard that you can get L-bot just doing few clones. I really didn\'t know about the G-Line thing? I just thought that it\'s easier to do few clones and have the L-bot for my clanchannel than getting idlers. So i did few clones for my channel to get the L-Bot for the clan... Then it disconnected and appeared to be G-Lined.. It means banned? Oh no.. Is there some timelimit to get it away or is it perm. ban? Please help me!

SaKral said on Sunday 08 October 2006

Hi, I just got G-lined. Didn\'t what it meant before I searched for: quakenet + g-lined at google. I am not an experienced mIRC user so I had no clue that that rule existed. Sorry for that. But please unban me, I just started up a new channel and got \"L\". Then I wanted more people to join so i started the program 6 times so I got more \"people\" coming in. But then POFF... disconnected :(.. Please please please.. first time I am here, so maybe this isnt the way to post this things?

RoyalFlush- said on Friday 24 November 2006

Hi there. I\'ve just got G-lined. Actually im not quite sure why? I\'m running 2 IRC clients on my computer, and my brother is runnning 1 on his computer. My internet connection got disconnect 2 or 3 times i a row, and my IRC clients reconnect on disconnect. So maybe my accounts didnt \"Ping timeout\" until after I reconnected. So it seems like i was on with 6 accounts at the time. Hope you understand. And will unban me.
