My Channel is being flooded! HELP!


When reporting to #services, do not paste lines directly; instead, pastebin them. If you paste lines, it is considered flooding and you will be akilled for 30 minutes.

Your Channel is Join-Flooded

  • Assign LimitServ to your channel: /msg LimitServ request #channel
    You must be the channel founder to do this. LimitServ sets a limit accordingly, so that it won't spam your channel with mode changes, while keeping the flooding out.
  • In the case that the flooding is join/part: /mode #channel +R and report it to #services immediately (provide logs, nicks, ... etc.).
    The +R mode stops non-registered, as well as not-identified, nicks from joining your channel. If that doesn't work, /mode #channel +i and report the offending nick(s) to #services.
  • When the flood has stopped, don't forget to unset the modes (replace the + with a -).

Your Channel is Text-Flooded by Multiple Users

  • Set a BotServ kicker for floods and repeats.
    /msg BotServ KICK #channel FLOOD ON 1 lines seconds (3 lines in 5 seconds is sufficient)
    /msg BotServ KICK #channel REPEAT ON 1 repeats (2 or 3 repeats, depending on how many times the users repeat)
  • /mode #channel +R also works here; as the users must be registered and identified their selves to the services, before they can join your channel to flood.
    In the case that this isn't enough, /mode #channel +m . This stops all non-voiced users from talking. If your channel is auto-voice for all users, /msg ChanServ LEVELS #channel SET AUTOVOICE 3 (you can change it back to 0 later).
  • Report the flood to #services, and provide the pastebin link of the flooding logs.

Your Channel is Targeted by a Single User

kickban them. If they manage to rejoin, report them to #services, and provide the pastebin link for the logs of the kickban up to the rejoin.
