Sidans ämne

This page is intented to help you on the setup and settings of a newly registered chan. Denna sida är till för att hjälpa dig sätta upp och ändra inställningar i din nyregistrerade kanal. Some contents are kind of obligatory - some others are only additional and do not need to be followed. Vissa steg är obligatoriska - medan andra bara kan ses som tillägg och inte behöver följas. This page can not replace all the other contents in this wiki, but it will hopefully give you a rough overview on the things to be kept in mind. Denna sida kan inte ersätta resten av den här wikin, men den kommer förhoppningsvis ge dig en kort överblick över vilka saker man bör känna till.



Now having registered your ally chan, you may wonder what you could use it for or what things should be configured in there. The simple answer: you can invite your ally mates in there to talk and everything is set the way necessary to fit that purpose. Nu när du registrerat din kanal för din allians så kanske du undrar vad du kan använda den för och vad som bör ändras. Det enklaste svaret är att du kan bjuda in dina allianskamrater till kanalen för att prata. Alla inställningar är redan satta för att passa detta ändamålet.

There is of course a more difficult answer as well. You can Det finns så klart även mer komplicerade svar. Du kan

  • invite your friends and add their accounts to the userlist of your chan
  • bjuda in dina vänner och lägga till dem i kanalens användarlista
  • set an individual topic and greetings that represent your ally/guild
  • sätta ett individuellt ämne eller välkomstmeddelande i kanalen som representerar din allians
  • change the settings and the accessibility of the chan
  • ändra inställningar och kanalens lättillgänglighet
  • look for fun bots, bncs and lots of other stuff
  • leta efter roliga botar, bouncers och massor av andra saker

How to

Hur du går till väga

If you now got some ideas about things to change in the chan, you will surely need more informations about the way you can work on them. Om du nu fått några idéer om saker du vill ändra i kanalen, kommer du säkerligen att behöva mer information om hur du skall gå till väga.
First of all, it could be useful to look at some chapters inside the wiki, e.g. ChanServ - which shows nearly all the available commands to you. Först av allt, det kan vara användbart att läsa några kapitel i wikin, t.ex. ChanServ/sv - vilket visar nästan alla möjliga kommandon du kan utföra.
Don't worry, we won't leave you alone at this point. This was just a tip on how to find these commands at all. We will now proceed in giving you some examples on possible actions. Oroa dig inte, vi kommer inte lämna dig här. Detta var bara ett tips för var man kan hitta alla kommandon samlade på samma ställe. Vi kommer nu att fortsätta med att ge dig några exempel på möjliga åtgärder.

Directing users to your channel

Dirigera användare till din kanal

Most of you, will have a number of allymates ingame, that you could want to direct to the new channel. De flesta av er har förmodligen ett antal allianskamrater i spelet som ni kanske skulle vilja peka till den nya kanalen.
If they just want to take a look, it is possible to provide them with the JavaChat. This can be done by using - for example, if you got the channel #AllyChan registered to you, you can use to access it directly via the OnlineGamesNet website. Om de bara vill ta en titt så kan du hänvisa dem till JavaChaten. Detta kan göras med hjälp av länken - till exempel, om du registrerat kanalen #AlliansKanal, kan du använda för att komma direkt till kanalen genom OnlineGamesNets hemsida.

Some of your members may want to visit more regularly. In these cases they should think about installing an IRC Client, which has some more comfort than the basic JavaChat. For Windows users, we suggest starting with mIRC - a common IRC Client. For the installation and some tips, please visit mIRC installation.

If you need more information on how to join a (protected) chan, please visit this page.

Adding users to the userlist of your channel

If you now got some of your mates inside the chan, you could as well add them to the userlist. This way, they get some privileges in there, for example the operator status (@) or the possibility to change some of the settings.

For doing so, your mates need an AuthServ account first. They can be registered simple and free of charge on our website, following this link:
Afterwards, they have an Accountname which can be used to add them to your userlist. You perhaps read some of the ChanServ commands already, the one needed now would be !adduser *<authnick> <accesslevel>.
If you need some more informations on the different access and the authnicks themselves, take a look at this page.

Keep in mind, that everybody needs to be logged in with AuthServ to get his or her privileges inside the channel.

Get user out of your Channel

Therefore you can handle it with Bans. To learn how to use them you should read the Channel Bans

Changing the topic of your channel

The topic is the infoline, posted at the top of the chan on joining. As with most of the things here, there is a simple way to change the topic inside the chan - and more difficult ones.
The easiest way is using !topic <text> right inside your chan. To get more variations, you may as well use some colors in your text. Most clients (e.g. mIRC) use ctrl + k to open a submenu for choosing a colortag with your text. Some other clients may have completely different options for it - at best try google or the helpfiles of your client to find out about it.

As mentioned, you can also put a more 'sophisticated' topic, that includes a fixed part and a variable. That way you got a static topic with the possibility to set a news posting in there if necessary.
If you want to find out more about this issue, please visit the article Topicmask.

Changing settings in your channel

Altogether, there is quite a big number of settings available for Channels registered with ChanServ. While you can find the complete overview about them here, we like to concentrate on the most important or interesting ones here.

Some of the settings are available for ChanServ access 300 and upwards already, some others require a higher amount of access inside the channel. Plus, the chanowner may adapt the default settings for the channel, so that some of these options may require more - or less access for your channel.

For this page, we will explain the effects and usage of the following settings:

  • setters
  • modes/enfmodes
  • givevoice/giveops
  • enftopic/topicsnarf
  • protect

All of these (except modes and protect) are set with the same syntax - /cs #channelname set <name-of-mode> <required-access>
Example: /cs #YourChannel set setters 350

  • Setting: setters
    • Usage: /cs #channelname set setters <accesslevel>
      • Example: /cs #YourChannel set setters 400
        • Explanation: This setting is one of the most important ones. Using it, you arrange the required minimum access for using all commands combined with set inside the channel. Of course, noone fulfilling this minimum may change a setting, set to a higher access (than he got). For example, with set setters 300 and set enftopic 350 - a user with 300 access may use set comands but not change enftopic because it requires a higher access level. Same for all other settings.

  • Setting: modes / enfmodes
    • Usage: /cs #channelname set modes +<letter of mode> (or -<letter of mode>)
    • Usage: /cs #channelname set enfmodes <accesslevel>
      • Example: /cs #YourChannel set modes -p+siz all the available modes can be found here. They can be set in any combination of + and -.
      • Example: /cs #YourChannel set enfmodes 350
        • Explanation: These settings care for defaultmodes inside your channel. Modes set with the command set modes can not be changed by someone with less access in your chan, than the level you determined with set enfmodes. For example, using access 500 for enfmodes, noone besides the chanowner may change a defaultmode +i in this channel.

  • Setting: givevoice / giveops
    • Usage: /cs #channelname set givevoice (or giveops) <accesslevel>
      • Example: /cs #YourChannel set givevoice 0
        • Explanation: With these two commands, you determine the required access to receive op or voice inside your channel. Using the example, everyone joining your channel will at least get voice (+) no matter of his access.. Or for using set giveops 400 only users with access 400 or higher inside your channel will get op (@).

This does not affect a users access. So !kick (required access: 200) will still work for someone with 200 Access even if he does not have op (@) in your channel.

  • Setting: enftopic / topicsnarf
    • Usage: /cs #channelname set enftopic (or topicsnarf) <accesslevel>
      • Example: /cs #YourChannel set enftopic 501
        • Explanation: Using those two options, you may determine who (or better: which access) may change the defaulttopic (for enftopic) and who may use /topic <yourText> (for topicsnarf) to overwrite a given defaulttopic in your channel. Only the chanowner may set the level 501, so noone (including him) can overwrite a given topic like mentioned then.

If you would like to have a static topic, with an option to change just some parts of it, take a look at the subject: Topicmask.

  • Setting: protect
    • Usage: /cs #channelname set protect <Number-of-protect-level>
      • Example: /cs #YourChannel set protect 2
        • Explanation: With this setting, you determine whether people on the userlist of your channel are protected against kicks/bans... Possible levels range from 0 to 3. Keep in mind, that this protection only affects actions taken via ChanServ. !k Someone can be 'disabled' with this setting, /kick someone (while being opped in the channel) will not. The different levels are:
        • 0 - All users will be protected from users with equal or lower access.
        • 1 - All users with access will be protected from users with equal or lower access.
        • 2 - All users with access will be protected from users with lower access.
        • 3 - Nobody will be protected.
