tilde.chat uses anope irc services to provide accounts and channel management features.
anope provides the following pseudo-users to manage the network:
you can likely guess what each one does by the name.
for more info about each part of services, you can ask it for help with the following commands:
/msg nickserv help
pass the name of the subcommand after
help for further information.
you can register a channel with ChanServ:
/msg chanserv register #mychannel
you can only register if you already have +o (chanops). this is automatically granted when you are the first person to join a channel.
note that you need to be identified to NickServ for this to work. the channel will be registered to your account, and you will automatically be granted +q and +o.
now that you've registered your channel, you can set up access for people as you see fit.
the easiest way to manage access lists is with the following commands:
/msg chanserv aop #mychannel add <someone> /msg chanserv hop #mychannel add <someone> /msg chanserv vop #mychannel add <someone> /msg chanserv qop #mychannel add <someone>
these are used to configure a list of modes that will be set and maintained automatically by ChanServ.
in this case,
aop stands for automatic op and corresponds to +o for that user
in your channel.
hop corresponds to +h,
vop to +v,
qop to +q.
you can also
clear your modelists. see the help for more info:
/msg chanserv help aop
