ChanServ FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

Post by Legend » Fri Mar 24, 2006 9:12 pm

For general questions concerning ChanServ, see below.

How do I register a room?
Answer: type /chanserv register #channel
Example: If you wanted to register #chat, you would type /chanserv register #chat mYp4ssw0rd General Chat

How do I set an entry message for people who join my room?
Answer: type /chanserv set #channel entrymsg
Example: If you wanted an entry message for #chat, you would type /chanserv set #chat entrymsg Welcome everyone! Please be respectful of other chatters, and enjoy your time!

How do I configure my room to automatically set modes when people enter?
Answer: type /chanserv set #channel mlock
Example: If you wanted #chat to be marked as private after the first person enters, you would type /chanserv set #chat mlock +p

How do I give someone access in my room?
Answer: By default, your room will use a numerical privilege system for access. The general command to add someone to your access list is /chanserv access #channel add . The following levels are available:

10 = Channel administrator (!)
5 = Channel operator (@)
4 = Channel half-operator (%)
3 = Voiced user (+)

Example: If you wanted Scott to be a channel operator in #chat, you would type /chanserv access #chat add Scott 5. Similarly, to remove Scott's access, you would use /chanserv access #chat del Scott.

What is the XOP system, and how do I use it?
Answer: the XOP system is an alternative way of setting up your channel access list (without using the ACCESS command described above). To enable XOP mode, type /chanserv set #channel xop on. The XOP system uses the following levels:

SOP = Super Operator (equivalent of level 10, channel administrator)
AOP = Channel Operator (equivalent of level 5, channel operator)
HOP = Channel Half-operator (equivalent of level 4, half-operator)
VOP = Voiced user (equivalent of level 3, voiced user)

Example: To grant Scott AOP access in #chat, you would type /chanserv aop #chat add Scott. To remove Scott's access, use /chanserv aop #chat del Scott.

This is going to sound dumb, but I can't register either of my channels.

#albumsaltitude
and
#baseball

Is there something wrong with the board that I can't do this?

That's correct - when you join an empty, unregistered channel, you are given operator (@) status. At this point you have permission to register the channel since nobody else has registered it.

If you join an unregistered room that already has users, you probably won't have operator (@) status. Only the person who joined the channel first can register the channel, unless of course they gave operator status to someone else so they could register it instead.
