SET EMAIL


SET EMAIL allows you to change or set the email address associated with a channel. This is shown to all users in INFO.


Syntax: SET <#channel> EMAIL [email]

Using the command in this way results in an email address being associated with the channel.


Example:

/msg ChanServ SET #chat EMAIL some@email.address



SET ENTRYMSG


SET ENTRYMSG allows you to change or set a message sent to all users joining the channel.


Syntax: SET <#channel> ENTRYMSG [message]

Example:

/msg ChanServ SET #support ENTRYMSG Welcome to #support. Please do not paste more than 5 lines.


SET FANTASY


SET FANTASY allows you to enable or disable ChanServ fantasy commands (!op, !deop, etc.) on your channel.


GUARD must be enabled as well for fantasy commands to work.


Syntax: SET <#channel> FANTASY ON|OFF

Example:

/msg ChanServ SET #chatspike FANTASY ON


SET FOUNDER


SET FOUNDER allows you to set a new founder of the channel. The new founder has to execute the same command to confirm the transfer.


Syntax: SET <#channel> FOUNDER <newnick>

If the new founder has not yet confirmed the transfer, you can cancel it by specifying your own nick as the new founder.


Syntax: SET <#channel> FOUNDER <yournick>

Example:

/msg ChanServ SET #foo FOUNDER bar


SET GAMESERV


SET GAMESERV allows gaming services to be used, sending to the channel, via /msg GameServ <command> <channel> <parameters>.


You can decide who may use GameServ:

ALL - allow all channel members

VOICE - allow ops/voiced

OP - allow ops

OFF - allow noone


For OP and VOICE, both channel status and ChanServ flags apply.


Syntax: SET <#channel> GAMESERV ALL|VOICE|OP|OFF

Example:

/msg ChanServ SET #foo GAMESERV VOICE


SET GUARD


SET GUARD allows you to have ChanServ join your channel.


Syntax: SET <#channel> GUARD ON|OFF

Example:

/msg ChanServ SET #atheme GUARD ON


SET KEEPTOPIC


SET KEEPTOPIC enables restoration of the old topic after the channel has become empty. In some cases, it may revert topic changes after netsplits or services outages, so it is not recommended to turn this on if your channel tends to never empty.


Syntax: SET <#channel> KEEPTOPIC ON|OFF

Example:

/msg ChanServ SET #foo KEEPTOPIC ON


SET LIMITFLAGS


SET LIMITFLAGS limits the power of the +f flag.


Users with +f that have neither +s nor +R may only set +b (akick), and users that do not have all of +s and +R may not set +s, +R and +f.


Syntax: SET <#channel> LIMITFLAGS ON|OFF

Example:

/msg ChanServ SET #foo LIMITFLAGS ON


SET MLOCK


MLOCK (or "mode lock") allows you to enforce a set of modes on a channel. This can prevent abuse in cases such as +kl. It can also make it harder to fight evil bots, be careful. Locked modes can be seen by anyone recreating the channel (this includes keys).


Syntax: SET <#channel> MLOCK [modes]

Examples: (some may use modes your ircd does not support)

/msg ChanServ SET #foo MLOCK +nt-lk

/msg ChanServ SET #foo MLOCK +inst-kl

/msg ChanServ SET #c MLOCK +ntk c

/msg ChanServ SET #foo MLOCK +ntcjf-kl 2:30 #overflow

/msg ChanServ SET #overflow MLOCK +mntF-kljf

/msg ChanServ SET #foo1 MLOCK +ntlL 40 #foo2


SET NOSYNC


SET NOSYNC allows channel staff to disable automatic syncing of channel status when it is changed.


Syntax: SET <#channel> NOSYNC ON|OFF

Example:

/msg ChanServ SET #foo NOSYNC ON


SET PREFIX


PREFIX allows you to customize the channel fantasy trigger for your channel. This is particularly useful if you have channel bots that conflict with ChanServ's default fantasy prefix. Providing no prefix argument (or DEFAULT) resets the channel fantasy prefix to the network default prefix.


Syntax: SET <#channel> PREFIX [prefix]

Examples:

/msg ChanServ SET #foo PREFIX

/msg ChanServ SET #foo PREFIX '

/msg ChanServ SET #c PREFIX %

/msg ChanServ SET #c PREFIX default


SET PRIVATE


SET PRIVATE hides various information about the channel from other users.


Syntax: SET <#channel> PRIVATE ON|OFF

Example:

/msg ChanServ SET #foo PRIVATE ON


SET PROPERTY


SET PROPERTY manipulates metadata associated with a channel.


To delete a metadata entry, specify the name and leave the value blank.


Syntax: SET <#channel> PROPERTY <name> [value]

Example:

/msg ChanServ SET #atheme PROPERTY URL http://www.atheme.org/

/msg ChanServ SET #meat PROPERTY VEGETABLES


SET RESTRICTED


SET RESTRICTED designates a channel as restricted access. Users who are not on the access list of the channel, or who do not have the chan:joinstaffonly privilege will be kicked and banned from the channel upon join, removing any ban exceptions matching them first. If the channel is set +i, no ban will be set and invite exceptions will be removed.


Syntax: SET <#channel> RESTRICTED ON|OFF

Example:

/msg ChanServ SET #snoop RESTRICTED ON


SET SECURE


SET SECURE prevents anyone that's not on the channel's access lists from gaining operator or halfop status on the channel. This is useful if you're paranoid.


Syntax: SET <#channel> SECURE ON|OFF

Example:

/msg ChanServ SET #foo SECURE ON


SET TOPICLOCK


SET TOPICLOCK causes ChanServ to revert topic changes by users without the +t flag. Topic changes during netsplits or services outages will always be reverted.


TOPICLOCK requires KEEPTOPIC and will automatically enable it; disabling KEEPTOPIC will disable TOPICLOCK also.


Syntax: SET <#channel> TOPICLOCK ON|OFF

Example:

/msg ChanServ SET #foo TOPICLOCK ON


SET URL


SET URL allows you to change or set the URL associated with a channel. This is shown to all users joining the channel.


Syntax: SET <#channel> URL [url]

Example:

/msg ChanServ SET #chat URL http://slashdot.org


SET VERBOSE


SET VERBOSE ON sends a notice to the channel when someone makes changes to the access lists.


SET VERBOSE OPS sends a notice to the channel operators when someone makes changes to the access lists.


Fantasy commands are always executed as if SET VERBOSE ON is in effect.


Syntax: SET <#channel> VERBOSE ON|OPS|OFF

Example:

/msg ChanServ SET #foo VERBOSE ON
