How to run an IRC channel

Useful commands to help run our IRC channel irc://

Getting started

Register Nick:

Before you can become a channel operator, you need to register your nick. This will prevent other people from impersonating you.

/msg nickserv register <password> <email>

Then validate your email address. Each time you connect to the server, you can then identify yourself:

/msg nickserv identify <password>

Register Channel:

Registering a channel prevents others taking it over when you’re not present.

/msg chanserv register #<channel>

/msg chanserv access #<channel> list

Set User Privs:

/msg chanserv help flags

Then set flags on a user:

  • +” Add privs
  • -” Remove privs
  • *” All privs (except Founder)
/msg chanserv flags #<channel> <username> +*F
/msg chanserv flags #<channel> <username> -OV
