Status of an unregistered person.

Many psyced installations still allow for novices to use PSYC, but they are not permitted to transmit private unicast messages to single persons, they can only enter public chatrooms until they register.

Some psyceds are configured not to allow access by novice users at all, or they may be limited to only come from a certain source, like a particular webchat affiliated with that server.
