Updated 2023-10-23: The
+i mode was added. See below for details.
A few weeks ago I wanted to set up a few redirects on IRC. Mainly, I wanted to
#todoman to the
(given that pimutils is the umbrella project for both of these).
These are the commands I had to run after authenticating:
/msg ChanServ register #todoman /msg ChanServ set #todoman mlock +if #pimutils /msg ChanServ set #todoman guard on /msg ChanServ register #vdirsyncer /msg ChanServ set #vdirsyncer mlock +if #pimutils /msg ChanServ set #vdirsyncer guard on /msg ChanServ register #khal /msg ChanServ set #khal mlock +if #pimutils /msg ChanServ set #khal guard on
mlocklocks the mode to the specified one
guardwill retain the channel even if everyone leaves.
+i: make channel invite only
+f: forward to another channel
The channel needs to be invite only; only users that cannot join the channel are redirected.
Setting a topic is important:
/msg chanserv topic #pimutils Don't ask if you can ask questions, just ask. Be prepared to wait, your question will not be answered immediately.
