  •  ChanServ permits you to control and register various
     aspects of channels.  ChanServ can often prevent
     malicious users from "taking control" of your channels by limiting
     who is assigned channel operator priviliges.  Available
     commands are as below; to use them, type
     /msg ChanServ command.  For more information on a
     particular command, type /msg ChanServ HELP command.
     
         REGISTER   Register a channel
         IDENTIFY   Identify yourself with your password
         SET        Set channel options and information
         AOP        Modify the list of AOP users
         SOP        Modify the list of SOP users
         ACCESS     Modify the list of privileged users

     Other commands: BAN, CLEAR, DEOP, DEVOICE, GETKEY, INFO, 
                     INVITE, KICK, LIST, LOGOUT, OP, TOPIC, 
                     UNBAN, VOICE, VOP
    
    
  • UNREAL
     
     These commands are also available on this network:
         DEHALFOP, DEOWNER, DEPROTECT, HALFOP, HOP, OWNER,
         PROTECT
    
    
  • ULTIMATE
     
     These commands are also available on this network:
         DEHALFOP, HALFOP, HOP
    
    
  • EXPIRES
     
     Note that channels that are not used for <num> days
     (i.e. which no user on the channel's access list enters
     for that duration) will be auto dropped / removed.
    
    
  • REGISTER
     Syntax: /msg ChanServ  REGISTER channel password description
     
    Registers a channel in the ChanServ database server.
    In order to use this command properly, you must first
    be a channel operator status on the channel you're 
    trying to register. The password is used with the 
    IDENTIFY command to permit others to make changes
    to the channel settings later. 
    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
    "owner" of the channel. The channel owners 
    are allowed to change all of the channel settings they
    create; ChanServ will also automatically give the founder
    channel-operator privileges when they enter 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 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
     Syntax: /msg ChanServ  SET channel option parameters
     
     Allows the channel founder to set various channel options
     and other information.
     
     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
         BANTYPE       Set how Services make bans on the channel

         KEEPTOPIC     Retain topic when channel is not in use
         OPNOTICE      Send a notice when OP/DEOP commands are used
         PEACE         Regulate the use of critical commands
         PRIVATE       Hide channel from LIST command
         RESTRICTED    Restrict access to the channel
         SECURE        Activate ChanServ security features
         SECUREOPS     Stricter control of chanop status
         SECUREFOUNDER Stricter control of channel founder status
         SIGNKICK      Sign kicks that are done with KICK command
         TOPICLOCK     Topic can only be changed with TOPIC
         XOP           Toggle the user privilege system
     
     Type /msg ChanServ HELP option for more information on a
     particular option.
    
    
  • SET FOUNDER
     Syntax: /msg ChanServ  SET channel FOUNDER nick
     
     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
             AOP channel DEL {nick | entry-num | list}
             AOP channel LIST [mask | list]
             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
             HOP channel DEL {nick | entry-num | list}
             HOP channel LIST [mask | list]
             HOP channel CLEAR
     
     Maintains the HOP (HalfOP) list for a channel. The HOP 
     list gives users the right to be auto-halfopped on your 
     channel.
     
     The HOP ADD command adds the given nickname to the
     HOP list.
     
     The HOP DEL command removes the given nick from the
     HOP list.  If a list of entry numbers is given, those
     entries are deleted.  (See the example for LIST below.)
     
     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 entries numbered 2 through 5 and
           7 through 9.
           
     The HOP CLEAR command clears all entries of the
     HOP list.
     
     The HOP ADD, HOP 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
             SOP channel DEL {nick | entry-num | list}
             SOP channel LIST [mask | list]
             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:
    
        SOP #channel LIST 2-5,7-9
           Lists AOP entries numbered 2 through 5 and
           7 through 9.
           
     The SOP CLEAR command clears all entries of the
     SOP list.
     
     The SOP ADD, SOP DEL and SOP CLEAR commands are 
     limited to the channel founder. However, any user on the
     AOP list may use the SOP 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.
    
    
  • VOP
     Syntax: /msg ChanServ  VOP channel ADD nick
             VOP channel DEL {nick | entry-num | list}
             VOP channel LIST [mask | list]
             VOP channel CLEAR
     
     Maintains the VOP (VOicePeople) list for a channel.  
     The VOP list allows users to be auto-voiced and to voice 
     themselves if they aren't.
     
     The VOP ADD command adds the given nickname to the
     VOP list.
     
     The VOP DEL command removes the given nick from the
     VOP list.  If a list of entry numbers is given, those
     entries are deleted.  (See the example for LIST below.)
     
     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 entries numbered 2 through 5 and
           7 through 9.
           
     The VOP CLEAR command clears all entries of the
     VOP list.
     
     The VOP ADD, VOP DEL and VOP LIST commands are 
     limited to AOPs or above, while the VOP 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.
    
    
  • ACCESS
     Syntax: /msg ChanServ  ACCESS channel ADD nick level
             ACCESS channel DEL {nick | entry-num | list}
             ACCESS channel LIST [mask | list]
             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
     User access levels
     
     By default, the following access levels are defined:
     
        Founder   Full access to ChanServ functions; automatic
                          opping upon entering channel.  Note
                          that only one person may have founder
                          status (it cannot be given using the
                          ACCESS command).
             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]
             AKICK channel STICK mask
             AKICK channel UNSTICK mask
             AKICK channel DEL mask
             AKICK channel LIST [mask]
             AKICK channel VIEW [mask]
             AKICK channel ENFORCE
             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
             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 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).
     
     For a list of the features and functions whose levels can be
     set, see HELP LEVELS DESC.
