Snoonet Rule Updates

Network Conduct

  • Solicitation of services to earn financial gain is only permitted by asking the channel operators.
  • No user is to request money from others. While we understand many are in times of need, please register a gofundme account and state why you are asking for money. Please ask permission from the channel operators. Begging, and contacting multiple users requesting money is a network offense and will be dealt with warnings and removal from the network.

Channel Rules

  • Channels may be freely registered on Snoonet, however if subreddit moderators claim an already-registered channel with the same name as their subreddit it shall be granted upon request.
  • Communities that have existed on Snoonet for a long period of time will be granted special exemptions. To prevent hostile takeovers of channels, Snoonet operations staff will work with the entire mod team of the subreddit to find the best solution.

Hello SubWatch, Farewell rAnnouncer

We’re pleased to introduce SubWatch, a new bot on our network. Subwatch announces new reddit threads on your channel from subreddits of your choosing, and will be replacing rAnnouncer, which is being decommissioned. You will need to transfer your settings in order for your channel to continue receiving thread alerts.

To switch between rAnnouncer and SubWatch, please take the following steps:

• Type \subreddit list to view rAnnouncer’s subreddits.

/invite SubWatch #channel to have SubWatch join your channel.

• Type $add [subreddit name] for each of the subreddits you wish to transfer.

/kick #channel rAnnouncer

Please note: you must be a channel operator or halfop to use these commands.

Want to keep a close eye on your subreddit? SubWatch is also capable of announcing threads based on keywords in the title, and can securely announce threads from private subreddits.

You can view the commands and further information here.

Change to the Default User Modes on Snoonet

We know that many communities are concerned about privacy for their users. To that end, in addition to masking user’s IPs, we are now setting +I as a default usermode.

What does this mean?

Unless you /umode -I, users will now be unable to see channels that you are in. If you wish -I to persist, please type /msg nickserv keepmodes on

Looking for new channels?

If you are looking to find new channels, please visit the communities page.

If you’d like your channel to be added to this list, please ask in #help or submit a ticket here.

The ducks are migrating...

Something spooky is happening on Snoonet. The ducks must have been scared off by something…where did they go? Wait…that looks like meatcat, running for dear life out of #foreveralone! Did they finally chase him off? …WAIT! Is that a zombie behind him?

It’s time to choose: you can .bang the monsters and save your fellow redditors or .bef the monsters and let them eat all of your friends.

Later today, the monster hunt will be released.


  • All hunting must be done in a channel with at least 10 other people hunting. If you invite gonzobot into #mycoolmonsterhunting channel and there are not 10 other people actively hunting with you you will be disqualified from the contest.
  • The highest average number of kills will win, so killing monsters in 100+ channels will not help you out at all.
  • If there are other ways people find to cheat the system, those involved will be disqualified.
  • Data analysis will be done before the winners are selected.
  • To qualify in the contest, nicknames must be registered or grouped under a registered account.


  • Each winner will be given 2 custom vhost coupons which will entitle them to a custom hostname of their choosing, within reason. Winners can choose to give one or both of these coupons away, or use them both for themselves.
  • If you would like to add to the pot by donating extra Humble Bundle license keys or anything else, please modmail /r/snoonet. We will distribute rewards as evenly as we can between the two winners. We’d be happy to promote any additional contributions, including who or what communities have donated the prizes. We will include any updates to the prize list here and anywhere else that the contest is announced, including /r/snoonet and @snoonet.

Requesting Support

Going forward, please submit all support requests, including network ban appeals, through our support system.

The support system will allow us to track and respond to issues and inquiries in a more efficient and effective manner.

If you require immediate assistance and are not currently banned from the network, Snoonet staff will be happy to assist you in the IRC #help channel. Please keep in mind that you may be redirected back to the support system to create a request due to the nature of your request.
