Channel Management 101
Ownermode and Protectmode
- If you want owner (
~), enable ownermode:
/msg ChanServ SET #channel OWNERMODE ON
- If you want protect/admin (
&), enable protectmode:
/msg ChanServ SET #channel PROTECTMODE ON
After those commands, rejoin the channel or say
/msg ChanServ SYNC #channel
Managing Channel Access
There are three different types of systems to manage who has access on your channel:
By default, channels use xOP since it is the simplest, so the other two aren't relevant unless you want more control.
The xOP system is the default form of access on Rizon.
Each user is assigned a certain level, which automatically grants them a status on the channel:
- VOP corresponds to a voice:
- HOP corresponds to a halfop:
- AOP corresponds to an op:
- SOP corresponds to a protectop:
Important: Every level can add or delete people to levels below them. (E.g., a SOP can add VOPs, HOPs and AOPs; a HOP can only add VOPs). The founder can change all levels.
To look through the xOP list to see which user has what level, type:
/msg ChanServ ACCESS #channel LIST
All VOPs get a voice (
All HOPs get a halfop (
All AOPs get op (
All SOPs get protectop (
Additionally, protectops cannot be kicked from the channel, unless the kick is from a channel owner (
The numerical level system, ACCESS, gives you more flexibility.
Each user is assigned a number (from 1 to 9999) and has dominance over users with a lower numbers. You then can specify what each number has the power to do. (E.g., level 3 and up can KICK).
If you want to auto-voice everyone who joins the channel, you must use ACCESS.
FLAGS is the most powerful of all the systems, but also the most complex.
Each user is assigned a list of flags which allow them to do specific things in the channel. (E.g., use KICK, use TOPIC, etc.)
When you own a channel, you are able to bring in a Rizon-provided bot.
A BotServ bot allows you to use ChanServ commands by talking in the channel, like saying
.kick Joe would be the same as
/msg ChanServ KICK #channel Joe
Start by looking through the botlist for any specific bot you want assigned:
/msg BotServ BOTLIST
Once you find one that you like, assign it with:
/msg BotServ ASSIGN #channel bot
There are many other channel modes you can set, feel free to take a look at Channel Modes.
There are all sorts of neat and useful things that can be done with ChanServ. To learn more, type
/msg ChanServ HELP
