According to IRCHighWay's Acceptable Use Policy, channels founders are to do as they please. Generaly speaking, it means that the Network Staff does not and can not interfere with channels matters.

Most of the times, it is therefore pointless to come around the official help channels, write to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or anything of the sort; in order to get yourself unbanned from a channel. However, there are a few exceptions to this guideline that I will describe later on.

But what can you do then? The best way to get a channel ban removed is to contact the channel operator that banned you in the first place. You can do this by the mean of a private message or a memo (please read /memoserv help for more information).

If you have no idea who banned you, there is only one way to go: you have to contact the channel founder for assistance. Once again, this can be done by the mean of a private message or a memo.

Of course, you may not know who is the founder of a channel you are banned from, there is a command that you can issue in order to find out his or her nick:

/chanserv info <#channel>

This command, once issued, will give you some information about the specified channel, including the founder's nickname.

Keep in mind that the channel founder may not be around, patience is a virtue, and that he may or may not remove the ban that prohibits you from joining the channel. The founder is the law within a channel. There is no point discussing the decisions he or she makes. Basically, you could be banned from a channel just because the ops do not like you, that's perfectly legit and the Network Staff will not do anything.

However, there are a few exceptions to the channel founder and ops almighty will; as I said earlier in this article.

What are these exceptions?

If the decision of a channel founder, admin or op is against the network's Acceptable Use Policy, the Network Staff is allowed to interefere and can therefore take action if they feel fit; upon the results of their investigation. It is only in such situations that you should go to the #abuse channel and submit a request for assistance.

I think you should now be able to answer properly if you ever get banned from a channel on IRCHighWay. I wish you good luck and although you are now prepared, I hope you will never find yourself in such a situation ;)

Have a nice week,

Arbin.

Additional note:

If you are banned from a channel where you are an op, depending on the channel's settings, you may or may not be able to overwrite the ban or to invite yourself.

Assuming that your access level is high enough:

To unban yourself: /chanserv unban <#channel>
To invite yourself: /chanserv invite <#channel>

  • HELP

    MemoServ is a utility allowing IRC users to send short messages to other IRC users, whether they are online at the time or not, or to channels(*). Both the sender's nickname and the target nickname or channel must be registered in order to send a memo. MemoServ's commands include:

    SEND Send a memo to a nick or channel
    CANCEL Cancel last memo you sent
    LIST List your memos
    READ Read a memo or memos
    DEL Delete a memo or memos
    SET Set options related to memos

    Type /msg MemoServ HELP command for help on any of the above commands.

    (*) By default, any user with at least level 10 access on a channel can read that channel's memos. This can be changed with the MemoServ LEVELS command.

  • SEND

    Syntax: /msg MemoServ SEND {nick | channelmemo-text

    Sends the named nick or channel a memo containing memo-text. When sending to a nickname, the recipient will receive a notice that he/she has a new memo. The target nickname/channel must be registered.

  • CANCEL

    Syntax: /msg MemoServ CANCEL {nick | channel}

    Cancels the last memo you sent to the given nick or channel, provided it has not been read at the time you use the command.

  • LIST

    Syntax: /msg MemoServ LIST [channel] [list | NEW]

    Lists any memos you currently have. With NEW, lists only new (unread) memos. Unread memos are marked with a "*" to the left of the memo number. You can also specify a list of numbers, as in the example below:

    LIST 2-5,7-9
      Lists memos numbered 2 through 5 and 7 through 9.
  • READ

    Syntax: /msg MemoServ READ [channel] {num | list | LAST | NEW}

    Sends you the text of the memos specified. If LAST is given, sends you the memo you most recently received. If NEW is given, sends you all of your new memos. Otherwise, sends you memo number num. You can also give a list of numbers, as in this example:

    READ 2-5,7-9
      Displays memos numbered 2 through 5 and 7 through 9.
  • DEL

    Syntax: /msg MemoServ DEL [channel] {num | list | LAST | ALL}

    Deletes the specified memo or memos. You can supply multiple memo numbers or ranges of numbers instead of a single number, as in the second example below.

    If LAST is given, the last memo will be deleted.
    If ALL is given, deletes all of your memos.

    Examples:

    DEL 1
      Deletes your first memo.
    DEL 2-5,7-9
      Deletes memos numbered 2 through 5 and 7 through 9.
  • SET

    Syntax: /msg MemoServ SET option parameters

    Sets various memo options. option can be one of:

    NOTIFY Changes when you will be notified about new memos (only for nicknames)
    LIMIT Sets the maximum number of memos you can receive

    Type /msg MemoServ HELP SET option for more information on a specific option.

  • SET NOTIFY

    Syntax: /msg MemoServ SET NOTIFY {ON | LOGON | NEW | OFF}

    Changes when you will be notified about new memos:

    ON You will be notified of memos when you log on, when you unset /AWAY, and when they are sent to you.
    LOGON You will only be notified of memos when you log on or when you unset /AWAY.
    NEW You will only be notified of memos when they are sent to you.
    OFF You will not receive any notification of memos.

    ON is essentially LOGON and NEW combined.

  • SET LIMIT

    Syntax: /msg MemoServ SET LIMIT [channellimit

    Sets the maximum number of memos you (or the given channel) are allowed to have. If you set this to 0, no one will be able to send any memos to you. However, you cannot set this any higher than <num>.

  • INFO

    Syntax: /msg MemoServ INFO [channel]

    Displays information on the number of memos you have, how many of them are unread, and how many total memos you can receive. With a parameter, displays the same information for the given channel.

  • SERVADMIN SET LIMIT

    Syntax: /msg MemoServ SET LIMIT [user | channel] {limit | NONE} [HARD]

    Sets the maximum number of memos a user or channel is allowed to have. Setting the limit to 0 prevents the user from receiving any memos; setting it to NONE allows the user to receive and keep as many memos as they want. If you do not give a nickname or channel, your own limit is set.

    Adding HARD prevents the user from changing the limit. Not adding HARD has the opposite effect, allowing the user to change the limit (even if a previous limit was set with HARD).

    This use of the SET LIMIT command is limited to Services admins. Other users may only enter a limit for themselves or a channel on which they have such privileges, may not remove their limit, may not set a limit above <num>, and may not set a hard limit.

  • SERVADMIN INFO

    Syntax: /msg MemoServ INFO [nick | channel]

    Without a parameter, displays information on the number of memos you have, how many of them are unread, and how many total memos you can receive.

    With a channel parameter, displays the same information for the given channel.

    With a nickname parameter, displays the same information for the given nickname. This use limited to Services admins.

1. What is IRC?

The Internet Relay Chat (short IRC) is one of the most popular and interactive chat services on the internet. If you think this website is the "IRC" then you are mistaken. This site is just an online portal for our visitors to view news we provide and to share information, which can't be shared in the fast living world of IRC. Usually the IRC service consists of several servers, which are linked to a network. Everyone in the world can connect to one of the servers and chat with other users who are connected to the same network. If you want to use our IRC service you need a IRC client. There are many different like: mIRC X-Chat Zirc irssi HydraIRC BitchX and many more.

2. The IRC Client mIRC

The most popular IRC Client used by Windows users is "mIRC". And for that reason this HowTo will explain what you have to do if you want to connect to IRCHighWay using the mIRC Client. First of all: "Where do I get mIRCThis is easy. Visit http://www.mirc.com and download it from the download section there. The link to the download section is: http://www.mirc.com/get.html The download and the use of mIRC is free for the first 30 days. Then a startup screen appears to remind you to register it. But you will still be able to use it. Install and run it. On startup you should see a dialog called mIRC Options after a short startup screen, which appears only on the unregistered version. If this dialog doesn't pop up or you accidentally closed it then you can (re)open it by pressing the keys ATL + O or clicking on View-> Options Highlight the very first category Connect like you see in the link below: Nick settings The fields have the following meaning:

  • Full Name: Don't use your real name here. Add something fake there but don't just smash your keyboard and add a bunch of random letters. There are no restrictions so you can use any chars (including spaces).
  • Email Address: As in the full name don't add your real email address here - use your imagination. There are restrictions on what you can use on this field. You can use "a-z A-Z 0-9 - _ .". You can use other chars there since mIRC will allow this but you won't be able to connect to IRCHighWay.
  • Nickname: Well this is kind of self explaining. Your nickname should not be longer than 30 chars and may contain the following characters: "a-z A-Z 0-9 _ - [ ] ` { } | ^ \"
  • Alternative: If the Nickname you choose is used by someone else mIRC will try to log on using the alternative nickname you specify here.
  • After this you need to specify the network you want to connect. Click on the category ServersServer settings Do the following settings there:

    • IRC Network: IRCHighway
    • IRC Server: IRCHighway: Random server
      The next part is optional. Select the category IdentdIdentd settings The Ident needs a closer explanation. You don't actually need to enable this feature but in some cases it is better if you have enabled it. When you connect the IRC Server sends a ident request on port 113. If you have enabled the Identd server and this port isn't blocked by any firewall or router then your mIRC will reply to that request. On some few IP ranges you might need, due heavy to spamming, a working Ident. Do the following settings:

      • check Enable Identd server
      • check Show Identd requests
      • check only when connecting
      • check Use ID from email address

  • User ID: This will be ignored if you have checked Use ID from email address so you don't need to set anything here. Leave System and Port untouched. The other categories should be ok for now and the settings there should fit your needs. Close the mIRC Options by clicking OK. Then let's try to connect by typing /server or /server irc.irchighway.net or just by clicking the connect button located in the top left of the mIRC Window (see picture below). Connect Button After this a lot of text should appear in the Status Window and the mIRC Favorites should pop up (see link). mIRC Favorites You can safely uncheck Pop up favorites on connect and close this window by clicking OK. If that worked you are connected to IRCHighWay. Before I proceed in navigating on IRC we should have a look at Nickserv.

3. Nickserv and registered nicks

You may see some notices from Nickserv that the nick you use is already taken by someone else. The notice looks like this: Nickserv notice Well in this case you need to choose another nickname. You can do this easily by typing

/nick nick_of_your_choice

       e.g. 

/nick john_doe

    .

Nickserv will keep telling you this notice until you found a nick, which is not registered by someone else. If you want to use the same nick every time when you connect you may register it. The service called Nickserv handles the nicks of all registered users of the Network. The nick registration is free and you just need an email to confirm that you are a real person. To register the nick you currently use type

/nickserv register password email

       e.g. 

/nickserv register supersecret This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Note: Your email address will be kept confidential. We will never send you spam mails or mails were we request private data (like passwords, banking accounts, etc). After this you will see a notice from nickserv telling you this:

- NickServ - A passcode has been sent to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., please type /msg NickServ confirm <passcode> to complete registration

Check your email account for new mails. Some email providers like hotmail may drop our mail sent by our services into your spamfolder. Open the mail and you will find a text like this:

Hi, You have requested to register the following nickname some_nickname. Please type " /msg NickServ confirm JpayrtZSx " to complete registration. If you don't know why this mail is sent to you, please ignore it silently. PLEASE DON'T ANSWER TO THIS MAIL! irchighway.net administrators.

Just copy and paste the part /msg NickServ confirm JpayrtZSx into your status window of you mIRC. Then press the enter key. A text like:

- *NickServ* confirm JpayrtZSx - 
- NickServ - Nickname some_nickname registered under your account: *q@*.1413884c.some.isp.net -
- NickServ - Your password is supersecret - remember this for later use.
- * some_nickname sets mode: +r

should appear after this. This means you finished your registration and the nick can only be used by you or you can force someone else if he/she uses your nick to give it back to you. If you disconnect then you need to tell nickserv that the nick is yours. you can do that by:

/nickserv identify password e.g. /nickserv identify supersecret

if the password is correct it should look like this:

* some_nickname sets mode: +r - 
- NickServ - Password accepted - you are now recognized.

In mIRC you can do the identification process automatically so you don't have to care about this anymore. Open the mIRC Options by pressing he key combination Alt + O then select the category Options and click on Perform you will see this dialog: Perform window

Check Enable perform on connect and add: if ($network == irchighway) { /nickserv identify password } in the edit box called Perform commands Close the options by clicking OK. Now your mIRC will automatically identify you every time you connect to IRCHighway.

4. Fining a channel

Well now you have your nick registered and have identified for your nick but you don't see much of the actual IRC because you are in no channel right now. Channels are the rooms of a IRC network. Imagine if there are 15000 people connected and everyone see the text of each other.

Well now the question may come up: How do I find a room? You can list the names of all rooms by typing /list. After you send this command a Window should pop up showing you the following information: for example: #help 55 :: IRCHighWay Helpdesk :: This is an IRC related ONLY help channel :: where:

  • #help: the name of the channel
  • 55: the actual number of visitors of that channel
  • :: IRCHighWay Helpdesk :: This is an IRC related ONLY help channel :: the topic of the channel where you can get a short information of what the channel is about. If you do just /list then a very long list will be shown and it would be a pain to find the channel you are searching for. Therefore you can search for a specific pattern in the channel name. For example if you look for a help channel type /list help. After this all channels with "help" in the name will pop up. You can join a channel by double-clicking on it's name or by typing: /join #channel-name e.g. /join #help.

5. What you should know about channels

Lets use the example with the channel #help. Type /join #help. A window pops up and you joined our official network help channel. The channel window looks like this: Channel window After you joined a channel you should always read the topic which you can find in the 2nd line after you joined a channel and maybe welcome notices like the one you see in our example sent by the nick "IRCHighWay" (the brown text). Topic and welcome notices usually give you information about the rules of the channel. On most channels you might be banned if you violate a rule which is shown in the topic. The nicknames you see at the left side of the channel window are the users which are currently in the channel. You might have noticed that some of them have tags like !, @, % or + in front of their nicks. This is the status of the nick in the Channel.

  • ! = channel admin
  • @ = channel operator
  • % = channel halfoperator
  • + = voice

The difference between these tags is the access the people have on the channel. But you can say for sure that all people with !, @ and % are somehow responsible for the channel.

6. Basic commands

I think the question of how to send some text to the channel is not relevant. You might have figured that out yourself by now. But there are several ways to send some text to another person besides the chat in the channel where other people can see what you type. These are called notices and private messages. As the name already says - these forms of messages can only read the person you sent it to. To send a notice do

/notice nick text

If you want to chat with someone in private then the "private message" would be the better choice. Just double click on a nick you want to chat with and a private message window will pop up. There you can chat with that person in private. However, if you don't have a nick to click on this will be a bit complicated so there exists a command for that. To open a private message window (short query) just type

/query nick

You might notice that if you double click into the query some weird information pop up in your status window like:

  1. Borg is This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. * Borg
  2. Borg has identified for this nick
  3. Borg on #idlerpg @#vhost @#script !@#middle-earth !@#irchighway !@#help !@#abuse
  4. Borg using irc.irchighway.net The IRCHighWay Network
  5. Borg is using a secure connection (SSL)
  6. Borg is a Network Administrator
  7. Borg is a Services Administrator
  8. Borg is available for help

Well this is called a /whois. A /whois nick shows you more or less useful information about a nick. There you can see:

  1. the hostmask of someone
  2. if the nick has identified for a registered nickname
  3. in what channels the nick joined
  4. what server the nick uses
  5. if the nick uses an encrypted connection.
  6. The last 3 lines have only people who are running the Network (IRCops). If you use our example of the #help channel then all admins / operators / halfoperators are IRCops. Well I think these commands are all you need for now but if you have questions about some specific things you can always ask patiently in #help.

List of basic commands:

/list: list all non secret channels which are currently in use
/list pattern: list all non secret channels which match the pattern
/join #channel: join #channel
/part #channel: leave #channel
/notice nick text: send a notice to a nick
/msg nick text: send a private message to a nick
/query nick: opens a private message window for the nick Actually one question might be already there and because this comes up relatively often.

7. What is SSL?

If you connect to IRCHighway like it's described above then the link to the server is a plain text connection. This means the data connection isn't secure and everyone who may be sniffing on your connection to the server may be able to read what you write. Therefore we provide a secure connection to our IRC Network. You can read how to set up SSL on your mIRC here

  • HELP

    ChanServ allows you to register and control various aspects of channels. ChanServ can often prevent malicious users from "taking over" channels by limiting who is allowed channel operator priviliges. Available commands are listed below; to use them, type /msg ChanServcommand. For more information on a specific command, type /msg ChanServ HELP command.

    REGISTER Register a channel
    IDENTIFY Identify yourself with your password
    SET Set channel options and information

    SENDPASS Help retrive lost passwords
    Other commands: BAN, CLEAR, DEOP, DEVOICE, GETKEY, INFO, INVITE, KICK, LIST, LOGOUT, OP, TOPIC, UNBAN, VOICE, VOP
  • ULTIMATE

    These commands are also available on this network: DEHALFOP, HALFOP, HOP

  • EXPIRES

    Note that any channel which is not used for <num> days (i.e. which no user on the channel's access list enters for that period of time) will be automatically dropped.

  • REGISTER

    Syntax: /msg ChanServ REGISTER channel password description

    Registers a channel in the ChanServ database. In order to use this command, you must first be a channel operator on the channel you're trying to register. The password is used with the IDENTIFY command to allow others to make changes to the channel settings at a later time. The last parameter, which must be included, is a general description of the channel's purpose.

    When you register a channel, you are recorded as the"founder" of the channel. The channel founder is allowed to change all of the channel settings for the channel; ChanServ will also automatically give the founder channel-operator privileges when s/he enters the channel. See theACCESS command (/msg ChanServ HELP ACCESS) for information on giving a subset of these privileges to other channel users.

    NOTICE: In order to register a channel, you must have first registered your nickname. If you haven't, /msg ChanServ HELP for information on how to do so.

  • IDENTIFY

    Syntax: /msg ChanServ IDENTIFY channel password

    Authenticates you to ChanServ as the founder of the given channel. Many commands require you to use this command before using them. The password should be the same one you sent with the REGISTER command.

  • LOGOUT

    Syntax: /msg ChanServ LOGOUT channel nickname

    This command makes the selected nickname not identified anymore for the given channel. If you are the founder of the channel, you can log out anybody, else you can only log out yourself.

  • DROP

    Syntax: /msg ChanServ DROP channel

    Unregisters the named channel. Can only be used by channel founder, who must use the IDENTIFY command first.

  • SET

    Changes the founder of a channel. The new nickname must be a registered one.

  • SET SUCCESSOR

    Syntax: /msg ChanServ SET channel SUCCESSOR nick

    Changes the successor of a channel. If the founder's nickname expires or is dropped while the channel is still registered, the successor will become the new founder of the channel. However, if the successor already has too many channels registered (<num>), the channel will be dropped instead, just as if no successor had been set. The new nickname must be a registered one.

  • SET PASSWORD

    Syntax: /msg ChanServ SET channel PASSWORD password

    Sets the password used to identify as the founder of the channel.

  • SET DESC

    Syntax: /msg ChanServ SET channel DESC description

    Sets the description for the channel, which shows up with the LIST and INFO commands.

  • SET URL

    Syntax: /msg ChanServ SET channel URL [url]

    Associates the given URL with the channel. This URL will be displayed whenever someone requests information on the channel with the INFO command. If no parameter is given, deletes any current URL for the channel.

  • SET EMAIL

    Syntax: /msg ChanServ SET channel EMAIL [address]

    Associates the given E-mail address with the channel. This address will be displayed whenever someone requests information on the channel with the INFO command. If no parameter is given, deletes any current E-mail address for the channel.

  • SET ENTRYMSG

    Syntax: /msg ChanServ SET channel ENTRYMSG [message]

    Sets the message which will be sent via /notice to users when they enter the channel. If no parameter is given, causes no message to be sent upon entering the channel.

  • SET BANTYPE

    Syntax: /msg ChanServ SET channel BANTYPE bantype

    Sets the ban type that will be used by services whenever they need to ban someone from your channel. bantype is a number between 0 and 3 that means:

    0: ban in the form *!user@host
    1: ban in the form *!*user@host
    2: ban in the form *!*@host
    3: ban in the form *!*user@*.domain
  • SET KEEPTOPIC

    Syntax: /msg ChanServ SET channel KEEPTOPIC {ON | OFF}

    Enables or disables the topic retention option for a channel. When topic retention is set, the topic for the channel will be remembered by ChanServ even after the last user leaves the channel, and will be restored the next time the channel is created.

  • SET TOPICLOCK

    Syntax: /msg ChanServ SET channel TOPICLOCK {ON | OFF}

    Enables or disables the topic lock option for a channel. When topic lock is set, ChanServ will not allow the channel topic to be changed except via the TOPIC command.

  • SET MLOCK

    Syntax: /msg ChanServ SET channel MLOCK modes

    Sets the mode-lock parameter for the channel. ChanServ allows you to define certain channel modes to be always on, off or free to be either on or off.

    The modes parameter is constructed exactly the same way as a /MODE command; that is, modes followed by a + are locked on, and modes followed by a - are locked off. Note, however, that unlike the /MODE command, each use of SET MLOCK will remove all modes previously locked before setting the new!

    Warning: If you set a mode-locked key, as in the second example below, you should also set the RESTRICTED option for the channel (see HELP SET RESTRICTED), or anyone entering the channel when it is empty will be able to see the key!

    Examples:

    SET #channel MLOCK +nt-iklps
      Forces modes n and t on, and modes i, k, l, p, and s off. Mode m is left free to be either on or off.
    SET #channel MLOCK +knst-ilmp my-key
      Forces modes k, n, s, and t on, and modes i, l, m, and p off. Also forces the channel key to be "my-key".
    SET #channel MLOCK +
      Removes the mode lock; all channel modes are free to be either on or off.
  • SET PEACE

    Syntax: /msg ChanServ SET channel PEACE {ON | OFF}

    Enables or disables the peace option for a channel. When peace is set, an user won't be able to kick, ban or remove a channel status of an user that has a level superior or equal to his via ChanServ commands.

  • SET PRIVATE

    Syntax: /msg ChanServ SET channel PRIVATE {ON | OFF}

    Enables or disables the private option for a channel. When private is set, a /msg ChanServ LIST will not include the channel in any lists.

  • SET RESTRICTED

    Syntax: /msg ChanServ SET channel RESTRICTED {ON | OFF}

    Enables or disables the restricted access option for a channel. When restricted access is set, users who would normally be disallowed from having channel operator privileges (users with negative access levels and, if secure ops is set, users not on the access list) will instead be kicked and banned from the channel.

  • SET SECURE

    Syntax: /msg ChanServ SET channel SECURE {ON | OFF}

    Enables or disables ChanServ's security features for a channel. When SECURE is set, only users who have registered their nicknames with ChanServ and IDENTIFY'd with their password will be given access to the channel as controlled by the access list.

  • SET SECUREOPS

    Syntax: /msg ChanServ SET channel SECUREOPS {ON | OFF}

    Enables or disables the secure ops option for a channel. When secure ops is set, users who are not on the userlist will not be allowed chanop status.

  • SET SECUREFOUNDER

    Syntax: /msg ChanServ SET channel SECUREFOUNDER {ON | OFF}

    Enables or disables the secure founder option for a channel. When secure founder is set, only the real founder will be able to drop the channel, change its password, its founder and its successor, and not those who are IDENTIFY'd with ChanServ.

  • SET SIGNKICK

    Syntax: /msg ChanServ SET channel SIGNKICK {ON | LEVEL | OFF}

    Enables or disables signed kicks for a channel. When SIGNKICK is set, kicks issued with ChanServ KICK command will have the nick that used the command in their reason.

    If you use LEVEL, those who have a level that is superior or equal to the SIGNKICK level on the channel won't have their kicks signed. See /msg ChanServ HELP LEVELS for more information.

  • SET XOP

    Syntax: /msg ChanServ SET channel XOP {ON | OFF}

    Enables or disables the xOP lists system for a channel. When XOP is set, you have to use the AOP/SOP/VOP commands in order to give channel privileges to users, else you have to use the ACCESS command.

    Technical Note: when you switch from access list to xOP lists system, your level definitions and user levels will be changed, so you won't find the same values if you switch back to access system!

    You should also check that your users are in the good xOP list after the switch from access to xOP lists, because the guess is not always perfect... in fact, it is not recommended to use the xOP lists if you changed level definitions with the LEVELS command.

    Switching from xOP lists system to access list system causes no problem though.

  • SET OPNOTICE

    Syntax: /msg ChanServ SET channel OPNOTICE {ON | OFF}

    Enables or disables the op-notice option for a channel. When op-notice is set, ChanServ will send a notice to the channel whenever the OP or DEOP commands are used for a user in the channel.

  • AOP

    Syntax:
    /msg ChanServ AOP channel ADD nick
    /msg ChanServ AOP channel DEL {nick | entry-num | list}
    /msg ChanServ AOP channel LIST [mask | list]
    /msg ChanServ AOP channel CLEAR

    Maintains the AOP (AutoOP) list for a channel. The AOP list gives users the right to be auto-opped on your channel, to unban or invite themselves if needed, to have their greet message showed on join, and so on.

    The AOP ADD command adds the given nickname to the AOP list.

    The AOP DEL command removes the given nick from the AOP list. If a list of entry numbers is given, those entries are deleted. (See the example for LIST below.)

    The AOP LIST command displays the AOP list. If a wildcard mask is given, only those entries matching the mask are displayed. If a list of entry numbers is given, only those entries are shown; for example:

    AOP #channel LIST 2-5,7-9
      Lists AOP entries numbered 2 through 5 and 7 through 9.
      
    The AOP CLEAR command clears all entries of the AOP list.

    The AOP ADD and AOP DEL commands are limited to SOPs or above, while the AOP CLEAR command can only be used by the channel founder. However, any user on the AOP list may use the AOP LIST command.

    This command may have been disabled for your channel, and in that case you need to use the access list. See /msg ChanServ HELP ACCESS for information about the access list, and /msg ChanServ HELP SET XOP to know how to toggle between the access list and xOP list systems.

  • HOP

    Syntax:
    /msg ChanServ HOP channel ADD nick
    /msg ChanServ HOP channel DEL {nick | entry-num | list}
    /msg ChanServ HOP channel LIST [mask | list]

      Lists HOP entries numbered 2 through 5 and 7 through 9.

    The HOP CLEAR command clears all entries of the HOP list.

    The HOP ADDHOP DEL and HOP LIST commands are limited to AOPs or above, while the HOP CLEAR command can only be used by the channel founder.

    This command may have been disabled for your channel, and in that case you need to use the access list. See /msg ChanServ HELP ACCESS for information about the access list, and /msg ChanServ HELP SET XOP to know how to toggle between the access list and xOP list systems.

  • SOP

    Syntax:
    /msg ChanServ SOP channel ADD nick
    /msg ChanServ SOP channel DEL {nick | entry-num | list}
    /msg ChanServ SOP channel LIST [mask | list]
    /msg ChanServ SOP channel CLEAR

    Maintains the SOP (SuperOP) list for a channel. The SOP list gives users all rights given by the AOP list, and adds those needed to use the AutoKick and the BadWords lists, to send and read channel memos, and so on.

    The SOP ADD command adds the given nickname to the SOP list.

    The SOP DEL command removes the given nick from the SOP list. If a list of entry numbers is given, those entries are deleted. (See the example for LIST below.)

    The SOP LIST command displays the SOP list. If a wildcard mask is given, only those entries matching the mask are displayed. If a list of entry numbers is given, only those entries are shown; for example:

  • ACCESS

    Syntax:
    /msg ChanServ ACCESS channel ADD nick level
    /msg ChanServ ACCESS channel DEL {nick | entry-num | list}
    /msg ChanServ ACCESS channel LIST [mask | list]
    /msg ChanServ ACCESS channel CLEAR

    Maintains the access list for a channel. The access list specifies which users are allowed chanop status or access to ChanServ commands on the channel. Different user levels allow for access to different subsets of privileges; /msg ChanServ HELP ACCESS LEVELS for more specific information. Any nick not on the access list has a user level of 0.

    The ACCESS ADD command adds the given nickname to the access list with the given user level; if the nick is already present on the list, its access level is changed to the level specified in the command. The level specified must be less than that of the user giving the command, and if the nick is already on the access list, the current access level of that nick must be less than the access level of the user giving the command.

    The ACCESS DEL command removes the given nick from the access list. If a list of entry numbers is given, those entries are deleted. (See the example for LIST below.)

    The ACCESS LIST command displays the access list. If a wildcard mask is given, only those entries matching the mask are displayed. If a list of entry numbers is given, only those entries are shown; for example:

    ACCESS #channel LIST 2-5,7-9
      Lists access entries numbered 2 through 5 and 7 through 9.

    The ACCESS CLEAR command clears all entries of the access list.

  • ACCESS LEVELS

    10 Access to AKICK command; automatic opping.
    5 Automatic opping.
    3 Automatic voicing.
    0 No special privileges; can be opped by other ops (unless secure-ops is set).
    <0 May not be opped.

    These levels may be changed, or new ones added, using the LEVELS command; type /msg ChanServ HELP LEVELS for information.

  • AKICK

    Syntax:
    /msg ChanServ AKICK channel ADD mask [reason]

    /msg ChanServ AKICK channel LIST [mask]
    /msg ChanServ AKICK channel VIEW [mask]
    /msg ChanServ AKICK channel ENFORCE
    /msg ChanServ AKICK channel CLEAR

    Maintains the AutoKick list for a channel. If a user on the AutoKick list attempts to join the channel, ChanServ will ban that user from the channel, then kick the user.

    The AKICK ADD command adds the given nick or usermask to the AutoKick list. If a reason is given with the command, that reason will be used when the user is kicked; if not, the default reason is "You have been banned from the channel".

    The AKICK STICK command permanently bans the given mask on the channel. If someone tries to remove the ban, ChanServ will automatically set it again. You can't use it for registered nicks.

    The AKICK UNSTICK command cancels the effect of the AKICK STICK command, so you'll be able to unset the ban again on the channel.

    The AKICK DEL command removes the given nick or mask from the AutoKick list. It does not, however, remove any bans placed by an AutoKick; those must be removed manually.

    The AKICK LIST command displays the AutoKick list, or optionally only those AutoKick entries which match the given mask.

    The AKICK VIEW command is a more verbose version of AKICK LIST command.

    The AKICK ENFORCE command causes ChanServ to enforce the current AKICK list by removing those users who match an AKICK mask.

    The AKICK CLEAR command clears all entries of the akick list.

  • LEVELS

    Syntax:
    /msg ChanServ LEVELS channel SET type level
    /msg ChanServ LEVELS channel {DIS | DISABLE} type
    /msg ChanServ LEVELS channel LIST
    /msg ChanServ LEVELS channel RESET

    The LEVELS command allows fine control over the meaning of the numeric access levels used for channels. With this command, you can define the access level required for most of ChanServ's functions. (The SET FOUNDER and SET PASSWORD commands, as well as this command, are always restricted to the channel founder.)

    LEVELS SET allows the access level for a function or group of functions to be changed. LEVELS DISABLE (or DIS for short) disables an automatic feature or disallows access to a function by anyone other than the channel founder. LEVELS LIST shows the current levels for each function or group of functions. LEVELS RESET resets the levels to the default levels of a newly-created channel (see HELP ACCESS LEVELS).

  • HELP
     NickServ allows you to "register" a nickname and
     prevent others from using it. The following
     commands allow for registration and maintenance of
     nicknames; to use them, type /msg NickServ command.
     For more information on a specific command, type
     /msg NickServ HELP command.
     
         REGISTER   Register a nickname
         GROUP      Join a group
         IDENTIFY   Identify yourself with your password
         ACCESS     Modify the list of authorized addresses
         SET        Set options, including kill protection
         DROP       Cancel the registration of a nickname
         RECOVER    Kill another user who has taken your nick
         RELEASE    Regain custody of your nick after RECOVER
         SENDPASS   Forgot your password? Try this
     
     Other commands: GHOST, ALIST, GLIST, INFO, LIST, LOGOUT, 
                     STATUS
     
     NOTICE: This service is intended to provide a way for
     IRC users to ensure their identity is not compromised.
     It is NOT intended to facilitate "stealing" of
     nicknames or other malicious actions.  Abuse of NickServ
     will result in, at minimum, loss of the abused
     nickname(s).
     
    
  • REGISTER
     Syntax: /msg NickServ  REGISTER password [email]
     
     Registers your nickname in the NickServ database.  Once
     your nick is registered, you can use the SET and ACCESS
     commands to configure your nick's settings as you like
     them.  Make sure you remember the password you use when
     registering - you'll need it to make changes to your nick
     later.  (Note that case matters!  EPONA, Epona, and 
     epona are all different passwords!)
     
     Guidelines on choosing passwords:
     
     Passwords should not be easily guessable.  For example,
     using your real name as a password is a bad idea.  Using
     your nickname as a password is a much worse idea ;) and,
     in fact, NickServ will not allow it.  Also, short
     passwords are vulnerable to trial-and-error searches, so
     you should choose a password at least 5 characters long.
     Finally, the space character cannot be used in passwords.
     
     The parameter email is optional and will set the email
     for your nick immediately. However, it may be required
     on certain networks.
     Your privacy is respected; this e-mail won't be given to
     any third-party person.
     
     This command also creates a new group for your nickname,
     that will allow you to register other nicks later sharing
     the same configuration, the same set of memos and the 
     same channel privileges. For more information on this
     feature, type /msg NickServ HELP GROUP.
     
    
  • GROUP
     Syntax: /msg NickServ  GROUP target password
     
     This command makes your nickname join the target nickname's 
     group. password is the password of the target nickname.
     
     Joining a group will allow you to share your configuration,
     memos, and channel priviledges with all the nicknames in the
     group, and much more!
      
     A group exists as long as it is useful. This means that even
     if a nick of the group is dropped, you won't lose the
     shared things described above, as long as there is at
     least one nick remaining in the group.
     
     You can use this command even if you have not registered
     your nick yet. If your nick is already registered, you'll
     need to identify yourself before using this command. Type 
     /msg NickServ HELP IDENTIFY for more information. This
     last may be not possible on your IRC network.
     
     It is recommended to use this command with a non-registered
     nick because it will be registered automatically when 
     using this command. You may use it with a registered nick (to 
     change your group) only if your network administrators allowed 
     it.
     
     You can only be in one group at a time. Group merging is
     not possible.
     
     Note: all the nicknames of a group have the same password.
    
    
  • IDENTIFY
     Syntax: /msg NickServ  IDENTIFY password
     
     Tells NickServ that you are really the owner of this
     nick.  Many commands require you to authenticate yourself
     with this command before you use them.  The password
     should be the same one you sent with the REGISTER
     command.
     
    
  • LOGOUT
     Syntax: /msg NickServ  LOGOUT
     
     This reverses the effect of the IDENTIFY command, i.e.
     make you not recognized as the real owner of the nick
     anymore. Note, however, that you won't be asked to reidentify
     yourself.
    
    
  • DROP
     Syntax: /msg NickServ  DROP [nickname]
     
     Drops your nickname from the NickServ database.  A nick
     that has been dropped is free for anyone to re-register.
     
     You may drop a nick within your group by passing it
     as the nick parameter.
     
     In order to use this command, you must first identify
     with your password (/msg NickServ HELP IDENTIFY for more
     information).
    
    
  • ACCESS
     Syntax: /msg NickServ  ACCESS ADD mask
             ACCESS DEL mask
             ACCESS LIST
     
     Modifies or displays the access list for your nick.  This
     is the list of addresses which will be automatically
     recognized by NickServ as allowed to use the nick.  If
     you want to use the nick from a different address, you
     need to send an IDENTIFY command to make NickServ
     recognize you.
     
     Examples:
     
         ACCESS ADD anyone@*.bepeg.com
             Allows access to user anyone from any machine in
             the bepeg.com domain.
     
         ACCESS DEL anyone@*.bepeg.com
             Reverses the previous command.
     
         ACCESS LIST
             Displays the current access list.
    
    
  • SET
     Syntax: /msg NickServ  SET option parameters
     
     Sets various nickname options.  option can be one of:
     
         DISPLAY    Set the display of your group in Services

                        sending messages to you
         URL        Associate a URL with your nickname
         EMAIL      Associate an E-mail address with your nickname
         ICQ        Associate an ICQ number with your nickname
         GREET      Associate a greet message with your nickname
         KILL       Turn protection on or off
         SECURE     Turn nickname security on or off
         PRIVATE    Prevent your nickname from appearing in a
                        /msg NickServ LIST
         HIDE       Hide certain pieces of nickname information
         MSG        Change the communication method of Services

     with your password (/msg NickServ HELP IDENTIFY for more
     information).
     
     Type /msg NickServ HELP SET option for more information
     on a specific option.
    
    
  • SET DISPLAY
     Syntax: /msg NickServ  SET DISPLAY new-display

     supported languages:
     
    
    
  • SET URL
     Syntax: /msg NickServ  SET URL url

     will be displayed whenever someone requests information
     on your nick with the INFO command.
    
    
  • SET EMAIL
     Syntax: /msg NickServ  SET EMAIL address
     
     Associates the given E-mail address with your nickname.
     This address will be displayed whenever someone requests
     information on the channel with the INFO command.
     
    
  • SET ICQ
     Syntax: /msg NickServ  SET ICQ number
     
     Associates the given ICQ number with your nickname.  This

     Syntax: /msg NickServ  SET GREET message
     
     Makes the given message the greet of your nickname, that
     will be displayed when joining a channel that has GREET
     option enabled, provided that you have the necessary 
     access on it.
    
    
  • SET KILL
     Syntax: /msg NickServ  SET KILL {ON | QUICK | IMMED | OFF}
     
     Turns the automatic protection option for your nick
     on or off.  With protection on, if another user
     tries to take your nick, they will be given one minute to
     change to another nick, after which NickServ will forcibly change
     their nick.
     
     If you select QUICK, the user will be given only 20 seconds
     to change nicks instead of the usual 60.  If you select
     IMMED, user's nick will be changed immediately without being
     warned first or given a chance to change their nick; please
     do not use this option unless necessary.  Also, your
     network's administrators may have disabled this option.
    
    
  • SET SECURE
     Syntax: /msg NickServ  SET SECURE {ON | OFF}
     
     Turns NickServ's security features on or off for your
     nick.  With SECURE set, you must enter your password
     before you will be recognized as the owner of the nick,
     regardless of whether your address is on the access
     list.  However, if you are on the access list, NickServ
     will not auto-kill you regardless of the setting of the
     KILL option.
    
    
  • SET PRIVATE
     Syntax: /msg NickServ  SET PRIVATE {ON | OFF}
     
     Turns NickServ's privacy option on or off for your nick.
     With PRIVATE set, your nickname will not appear in

     information on it using the INFO command.)
    
    
  • SET HIDE
     Syntax: /msg NickServ  SET HIDE {EMAIL | USERMASK | QUIT} {ON | OFF}
     
     Allows you to prevent certain pieces of information from
     being displayed when someone does a NickServ INFO on your
     nick.  You can hide your E-mail address (EMAIL), last seen
     user@host mask (USERMASK), and last quit message (QUIT).
     The second parameter specifies whether the information should
     be displayed (OFF) or hidden (ON).
     
    
  • SET MSG
     Syntax: /msg NickServ  SET MSG {ON | OFF}
     
     Allows you to choose the way Services are communicating with 
     you. With MSG set, Services will use messages, else they'll 
     use notices.
    
    
  • RECOVER
     Syntax: /msg NickServ  RECOVER nickname [password]
     
     Allows you to recover your nickname if someone else has
     taken it; this does the same thing that NickServ does
     automatically if someone tries to use a kill-protected
     nick.
     
     When you give this command, NickServ will bring a fake
     user online with the same nickname as the user you're
     trying to recover your nick from.  This causes the IRC
     servers to disconnect the other user.  This fake user will
     will remain online for one minute to ensure that the other
     user does not immediately reconnect; after that minute, you
     can reclaim your nick.  Alternatively, use the RELEASE
     command (/msg NickServ HELP RELEASE) to get the nick
     back sooner.
     
     In order to use the RECOVER command for a nick, your
     current address as shown in /WHOIS must be on that nick's
     access list, you must be identified and in the group of
     that nick, or you must supply the correct password for
     the nickname.
    
    
  • RELEASE
     Syntax: /msg NickServ  RELEASE nickname [password]
     
     Instructs NickServ to remove any hold on your nickname
