How to make someone operator automatically¶
To get the help on Freenode, and with irssi, you could use:
/query ChanServ HELP FLAGS
It will switch to the ChanServ window and show the help.
At the time of writing this gives:
***** ChanServ Help ***** Help for FLAGS: The FLAGS command allows for the granting/removal of channel privileges on a more specific, non-generalized level. It supports nicknames, groups and hostmasks as targets. When only the channel argument is given, a listing of permissions granted to users will be displayed. Syntax: FLAGS <#channel> Otherwise, an access entry is modified. A modification may be specified by a template name (changes the access to the template) or a flags change (starts with + or -). See the TEMPLATE help entry for more information about templates. If you are not a founder, you may only manipulate flags you have yourself, and may not edit users that have flags you don't have. For this purpose, +v grants the ability to grant +V, +o grants the ability to grant +O, and +r grants the ability to grant +b. As of Atheme 7.0, there are now extended entity targets which allow you to match chanacs against a situation instead of against a nickname, hostmask or group. Available exttargets are: $chanacs:#channel - Any user with channel access in the given channel (including hostmasks). If you do not have +f you may still remove your own access with -*. Syntax: FLAGS <#channel> [nickname|hostmask|group template] Syntax: FLAGS <#channel> [nickname|hostmask|group flag_changes] Permissions: +v - Enables use of the voice/devoice commands. +V - Enables automatic voice. +o - Enables use of the op/deop commands. +O - Enables automatic op. +s - Enables use of the set command. +i - Enables use of the invite and getkey commands. +r - Enables use of the unban command. +R - Enables use of the recover, sync and clear commands. +f - Enables modification of channel access lists. +t - Enables use of the topic and topicappend commands. +A - Enables viewing of channel access lists. +S - Marks the user as a successor. +F - Grants full founder access. +b - Enables automatic kickban. +e - Exempts from +b and enables unbanning self. The special permission +* adds all permissions except +b, +S, and +F. The special permission -* removes all permissions including +b and +F. Examples: /msg ChanServ FLAGS #foo /msg ChanServ FLAGS #foo email@example.com VOP /msg ChanServ FLAGS #foo firstname.lastname@example.org -V+oO /msg ChanServ FLAGS #foo email@example.com -* /msg ChanServ FLAGS #foo foo +oOtsi /msg ChanServ FLAGS #foo TroubleUser!*@*.troubleisp.net +b /msg ChanServ FLAGS #foo !baz +* ***** End of Help *****
So to make
GNUtoo an operator we can use:
/msg ChanServ FLAGS #replicant GNUtoo +O
