Channel Modes Involving a Parameter

Flag Title Description
k Key This is what most would refer as a 'channel password'. It'll prevent users without the channel key to join it. If you have the password, you can join it with /join #channel key.

To set this mode:

/mode #channel +k key

l Limit If you have this set to a certain number, people will not be able to join the channel if the user count reach the LIMIT.

/mode #channel +l limit.

v Voice By giving this user mode to someone, you will allow them to talk if the channel is muted through CMODE +m.

/mode #channel +vvvv nick1 nick2 nick3 nick4

h Half-op This will allow a user to set most of the channel modes and they will be able to kick users who have voice (+v) or nothing in the channel. However, they are unable to kick each other if CMODE +p is set. Half-ops are unable to kick +o users (and higher) regardless of channel modes.

/mode #channel +hhhh nick1 nick2 nick3 nick4

o Op This gives the user control over half-opped, voiced, and regular users. An opped user may op other users, set any mode except +q and +a, and remove ops from whoever they want. Opped users cannot perform actions against owners, or protected users.

/mode #channel +oooo nick1 nick2 nick3 nick4

a Protected/Admin This gives the user control over opped, half-opped, voiced, and regular users. A protected/admin user may op other users, set any mode except +q and +a, and remove ops from whoever they want. Protected/admin users cannot perform actions against owners or other protected users.

/mode #channel +aaaa nick1 nick2 nick3 nick4

q Owner This gives the user full control over the channel. A owner may owner/protect/op other users, set any mode, and remove owner/protect/ops from whoever they want.

/mode #channel +qqqq nick1 nick2 nick3 nick4

b Ban This will prevent a user from entering the channel, based on a nick!ident@host match. Alternatively, if the user is already in the channel, this mode will mute them if they have no status.

/mode #channel +b nick!ident@host

Examples:

  • /mode #moo +b Romney!*@* will ban all users using the nick Romney.
  • /mode #moo +b *!*@*.aol.com will ban all of AOL users.
e Exempt This will allow a user to join a channel even if they are banned (+b), based on a nick!ident@host match.

/mode #channel +eee nick1!ident1@host1 nick2!ident2@host2 nick3!ident3@host3

Examples:

  • /mode #moo +e Jacob!*@* will allow 'Jacob' to join the channel even if he is banned or the channel is set to +i.
  • /mode #moo +e *!*@*.com will allow anyone connecting through a host ending on .com to join the channel for the same reasons as Jacob.
I Invite Exempt This will allow a user to join an invite-only (+i) channel, based on a nick!user@host match.

/mode #channel +IIII nick1!ident1@host1 nick2!ident2@host2 nick3!ident3@host3 nick4!ident4@host4
