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 privileges. Type /msg ChanServ HELP COMMANDS for a list of ChanServ commands; to use a command, type /msg ChanServ command, or for more information on a command, type /msg ChanServ HELP command.

Note that any channel which is not used for 14 days (i.e. which no user on the channel's access list enters for that period of time) will be automatically dropped.

help register
Syntax: 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 you 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 the ACCESS 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 and identified for your nickname. If you haven't, /msg NickServ HELP for information on how to do so.



help identify
Syntax: 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.



help drop
Syntax: DROP channel

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



help set
Syntax: SET channel option parameters

Allows the channel founder to set various channel options and other information. The founder must use the IDENTIFY command before using SET.

Available options:

FOUNDER - Set the founder of a channel
SUCCESSOR - Set the successor for a channel
PASSWORD - Set the founder password
DESC - Set the channel description
URL - Associate a URL with the channel
EMAIL - Associate an E-mail address with the channel
ENTRYMSG - Set a message to be sent to users when they enter the channel
KEEPTOPIC - Retain topic when channel is not in use
TOPICLOCK - Topic can only be changed with TOPIC
MLOCK - Lock channel modes on or off

Type /msg ChanServ HELP option for more information on a particular option.



help unset
Syntax: UNSET channel {SUCCESSOR | URL | EMAIL | ENTRYMSG}

Clears the given setting for a channel.



help info
Syntax: INFO channel [ALL]

Lists information about the named registered channel, including its founder, time of registration, last time used, description, and mode lock, if any. If you are identified as the founder of the channel you're getting information for and ALL is specified, the entry message and successor will also be displayed.



help access
Syntax: ACCESS channel ADD nickname level
ACCESS channel DEL {nickname | entry-num | list}
ACCESS channel LIST [mask | list]
ACCESS channel COUNT


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 nickname 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 nickname 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 COUNT command returns the number of entries there are on the access list.

Note that the access list may also be manipulated with the SOP, AOP, and HOP, and VOP commands, which correspond to levels of 100, 50, 40, and 30 respectively.



help levels
Syntax: LEVELS channel SET type level
LEVELS channel {DIS | DISABLE} type
LEVELS channel LIST
LEVELS channel RESET


The LEVELS command allows fine control over the meaning of the numeric access levels used by the ACCESS command. 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.)

Caution: This command is for advanced users only! Changing level settings with this command may cause the SOP, AOP, HOP, and VOP commands to stop working correctly.

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).

For a list of the features and functions whose levels can be set, see HELP LEVELS DESC.



help sop
Syntax: SOP channel ADD nickname
SOP channel DEL nickname
SOP channel LIST [mask | list]
SOP channel COUNT


Maintains the SuperOp (SOP) list for a channel. Users with SOP status are automatically opped (set mode +o) and protected (mode +a) when they join the channel.

An SOP can modify the AOP, HOP, and VOP lists. Only a channel's founder can modify the SOP list.

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:

SOP #channel LIST 2-5,7-9
Lists SOP list entries numbered 2 through 5 and 7 through 9.

The SOP COUNT command returns the number of entries there are on the SOP list.



help aop
Syntax: AOP channel ADD nickname
AOP channel DEL nickname
AOP channel LIST [mask | list]
AOP channel COUNT


Maintains the AutoOp (AOP) list for a channel. Users with AOP status are automatically opped (set mode +o) when they join the channel.

An AOP can modify the HOP and VOP lists; SOPs can modify the AOP list.

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 list entries numbered 2 through 5 and 7 through 9.

The AOP COUNT command returns the number of entries there are on the AOP list.



help vop
Syntax: VOP channel ADD nickname
VOP channel DEL nickname
VOP channel LIST [mask | list]
VOP channel COUNT


Maintains the VoiceOp (VOP) list for a channel. Users with VOP status are automatically voiced (set mode +v) when they join the channel.

The VOP LIST command displays the VOP 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:

VOP #channel LIST 2-5,7-9
Lists VOP list entries numbered 2 through 5 and 7 through 9.

The VOP COUNT command returns the number of entries there are on the VOP list.



help hop
Syntax: HOP channel ADD nickname
HOP channel DEL nickname
HOP channel LIST [mask | list]
HOP channel COUNT


Maintains the HalfOp (HOP) list for a channel. Users with HOP status are automatically halfopped (set mode +h) when they join the channel.

An HOP can modify the VOP list; SOPs and AOPs can modify the HOP list.

The HOP LIST command displays the HOP 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:

HOP #channel LIST 2-5,7-9
Lists HOP list entries numbered 2 through 5 and 7 through 9.

The HOP COUNT command returns the number of entries there are on the HOP list.

The AKICK ADD command adds the given user@host or nick!user@host mask 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 DEL command removes the given 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. AKICK VIEW is similar, but shows more details.

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

However, if the successor already has too many channels registered (20), the channel will be dropped instead, just as if no successor had been set. The nickname must be a registered one.



help set password
Syntax: SET channel PASSWORD password

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



help set desc

Syntax: 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.



help set mlock
Syntax: SET channel MLOCK modes

Sets the mode-lock parameter for the channel. ChanServ allows you to define certain channel modes to be always on (or off). All binary modes (n, s, t, k, l, and so on) can be locked; each mode can be locked on, locked off, or not locked. 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.

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-ikl
Forces modes n and t on, and modes i, k, and l off. All other modes are 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.

help set secure
Syntax: 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 NickServ and IDENTIFY'd with their password will be given privileges on the channel as controlled by the access list.



help set secureops
Syntax: 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.



help set leaveops
Syntax: SET channel LEAVEOPS {ON | OFF}

Enables or disables the leave ops option for a channel. When leave ops is set, ChanServ will leave server ops (+o for the first person in the channel) in place even if the user would not normally get auto-opped. The SECUREOPS option and AUTODEOP access level will still be enforced. Notice: This can allow users to "steal" ops during a netsplit.



help set opnotice
Syntax: 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, VOICE, or related commands are used for a user in the channel.



help set enforce
Syntax: SET channel ENFORCE {ON | OFF}

Enables or disables the enforce option for a channel. When enforce is set, ChanServ will enforce the auto-op and auto-voice levels for all users. For example, if a user with auto-op privileges is deopped, ChanServ will automatically op the user again, and ChanServ will also not allow the DEOP command to be used on that user.
