X and W commands list
(Page From http://cservice.undernet.org)
(Maintained There By: Robin Thellend Aka SeKs @ UnderNet)
* Parameters enclosed in <>'s are mandatory.
* Parameters enclosed in 's are optional.
* x|y means x or y.
* <nick> refers to a person's IRC nickname that they are online with.
* <username> refers to a person's username as it appears in the userlist; not to be confused with <nick>. For more information about usernames and how to determine a person's username, refer to the VERIFY and INFO commands (level 0).
* All commands shown with the <username> field can also work by specifying a user's IRC nickname that they are online with by preceding their nickname with an equal (=) sign. For example, consider a person with the nickname ^[Test]^ and username Test. The ACCESS command can be performed on this user in either of these 2 methods:
1. /msg x access <#channel> Test
2. /msg x access <#channel> =^[Test]^
The 1st method directly queries X as to whether or not the username "Test" is in the userlist. The 2nd method makes X lookup ^[Test]^'s username if they are authenticated, which refer's to their username of "Test." This can be performed with any command that requires a <username>, but will only work if the user is authenticated, otherwise a "No Match" reply or equivalent will be returned.
Makes X leave your channel.
Syntax: /msg x part <#channel>
Changes special X/W modes for channel. NOTE : the variables AlwaysOp, UserFlags, MassDeopPro, NickFloodPro, URL and Description can be changed by someone with 450+ access on your channel.
Syntax: /msg X,W set #channel <variable> <value>
Variables for SET
When the flag is set ON, it makes X always join your channel. When the flag is OFF, it will make it part if it's on the channel, and not re-join after a netsplit.
Syntax: /msg x set <#channel> autojoin <on|off>
The maximum number of deops X will allow in a 15 sec period. Any user exceeding this will be kicked, suspended (if on the userlist) and a level 25 ban placed on them to prevent ops. The suspend and ban time is 5 minutes. When setting the MASSDEOPPRO, value can be set from 1, which is the most sensitive, to 7, which is least sensitive. A value of 0 turns off the option.
Syntax: /msg x set <#channel> massdeoppro <0-7>
This means that nobody may be a channel operator except X. This does not mean you don't have control of X or the channel. If you are authenticated, you can issue commands like KICK, BAN, etc. through X, you just can't be opped yourself.
Syntax: /msg x set <#channel> noop <on|off>
This allows only Level 100+ users who are authenticated to be opped.
Syntax: /msg x set lt;#channel> autojoin <on|off>
Changes special X modes for channel.
Syntax: /msg x set <#channel> <#variable> <#value>
Variables and Values for SET
This flag makes X reset the topic to the channel DESCRIPTION and URL every 30 minutes. Note that if the channel is idle, the topic will not be reset during that time.
Syntax: /msg x set <#channel> autotopic <on|off>
DESCRIPTION or DESC
Sets the default channel topic (maximum of 80 characters). This does NOT affect the actual channel topic, unless AUTOTOPIC is ON. The topic can be seen only by the CHANINFO command (level 0). If no description text is specified, the current description is reset.
Syntax: /msg x set <#channel> description [text]
/msg x set <#channel> desc [text]
Sets the floating-limit feature on or off. If turned on, X will reset the channel limit within a preset margin above the number of users in the channel, and within a preset period of time. This aids in preventing large floodnets from joining and flooding the channel. By default, this feature is off. When turned on, the STATUS command will show the settings on the "Flags set:" line as follows: "FLOATLIM (MGN:3, PRD:20, GRC:1, MAX:0)." This means that FLOATLIM is on, with a FLOATMARGIN of 3, a FLOATPERIOD of 20 seconds, a FLOATGRACE of 1, and no FLOATMAX. Refer to the SET FLOATGRACE, SET FLOATMARGIN, SET FLOATMAX, and SET FLOATPERIOD commands for more information.
Syntax: /msg x set <#channel> floatlim <on|off>
Sets the floating-limit grace value to be used in the channel. This number can be between 0-19. This makes X avoid changing the limit if it will be smaller than the grace value. In other words, this is the value that corresponds to the number of extra users that join or part a channel before X changes the limit. As a result, X will not litter quiet channels with lots of mode changes. The default value is 1.
Syntax: /msg x set <#channel> floatgrace <0-19>
Sets the floating-limit margin to be used in the channel. This number can be between 2-20. The limit that X resets will be: number of users in the channel + FLOATMARGIN. The default value is 3.
Syntax: /msg x set <#channel> floatmargin <2-20>
Sets the maximum limit for the floating-limit setting. This can be any number desired, and will prevent X from changing the channel limit to a number higher than the chosen number. Thus, it is possible for a channel to limit how many users they want in a channel at any given time. The default value is 0, which turns the setting off.
Syntax: /msg x set <#channel> floatmax <0 | max limit desired>
Sets the floating-limit period, in seconds, to be used before X resets the channel limit. This number must be between 20-200. The default value is 20 seconds.
Syntax: /msg x set <#channel> floatperiod <20-200>
Sets keywords for your channel that will trigger on a SEARCH (level 0) of channels. If no keywords are specified, the current keywords are reset. The maximum string of keywords is 80 characters long.
Syntax: /msg x set <#channel> keywords [text]
This will save the current channel modes as default. Whenever X joins the channel, it will reset those modes if any are not set at the time and it is alone in the channel.
Syntax: /msg x set <#channel> mode
You can state your channel's homepage address(es) with this option (maximum of 75 characters). Spaces are permitted, allowing multiple URL parameters to be specified. This does NOT affect the channel topic, unless AUTOTOPIC is ON (level 450). The DESCRIPTION and URL can be seen by using the CHANINFO command (level 0). If no url is specified, the current url is reset.
Syntax: /msg x set <#channel> url [url url2 ... urlN]
Determines whether or not OP or VOICE will automatically be set for AUTOMODE when a new user is added to the userlist. Default value is 0 (None).
NOTE: Once a user is on the userlist, the MODINFO AUTOMODE command (level 400) can be issued to change the value for that individual alone.
0 = No AutoMode set for all new users added.
1 = Op AutoMode set for all new users added.
2 = Voice AutoMode set for all new users added.
Syntax: /msg x set <#channel> userflags <0-2>
Makes X join your channel.
Syntax: /msg x join <#channel>
Adds a user to the channel's userlist. You cannot ADDUSER someone with equal or higher access than your own.
Syntax: /msg x adduser <#channel> <username> <access>
Clears all channel modes. Can be used when your channel has been locked up (set +i or +k without your knowledge). NOTE: This is not necessarily the best method to gain entry to your channel, because other people or bots may be opped in the channel that may reset the modes as you clear them. Refer to the STATUS command (level 200) for related information.
Syntax: /msg x clearmode <#channel>
The following commands can be used to make changes to existing users in your channel's userlist.
Syntax: /msg x modinfo <#channel> <variable> <username> <value>
* Variables for ModInfo:
Changes the access level of a user. Access level can be set between 1 and one less than your own level (if you have an access level of 400, you may assign a level of up to 399 to other users).
Syntax: /msg x modinfo <#channel> access <username> <new level>
Changes the automode of a user to one the specified modes: NONE, OP, or VOICE. OP or VOICE will make X op or voice an authenticated user when they enter the channel. NONE will make X do nothing when an authenticated user enters the channel.
Syntax: /msg x modinfo <#channel> automode <username> <none|op|voice>
Removes a user from the channel database. You must have higher access than the user you want to remove. You can also remove yourself from any channel, as long as you are not the channel manager (500 access level in that channel). Managers wishing to remove themselves will need to purge their channel.
Syntax: /msg x remuser <#channel> <username>
Makes X kick all users matching the specified *!*user@*.host mask, but does not kick the person issuing the command if they match also. This should be a seldom used command. Use should be limited to extreme channel flooding or clones. You may want to set a ban on the mask, or +i (invite mode) on the channel before issuing the kick to prevent matching users from rejoining after being kicked.
Syntax: /msg x kick <#channel> <nick | *!*user@*.host> [reason]
Displays all special X settings, channel modes, the number of users and ops in the channel, currently authenticated users for the channel, and whether X is on the channel or not. Currently authenticated users are shown in a "username/nickname [level]" format. A user's nickname will only be shown if that user is currently on the channel, otherwise only their username and level are displayed. The ability to see channel modes is extremely helpful in case the channel is +k (keyed mode), since you can find out what the key is. This commands works regardless of whether X is on the channel or not.
Syntax: /msg x status <#channel>
Deops one or more persons in your channel. If no nick is specified, and you are opped on the channel, X will deop you. NOTE: be mindful of triggering the limit that may be in effect with MASSDEOPPRO (see SET MASSDEOPPRO - level 500).
Syntax: /msg x deop <#channel> [nick] [nick2] ... [nickN]
Ops one or more persons in your channel. If no nick is specified, and you are not opped on the channel, X will op you.
Syntax: /msg x op <#channel> [nick] [nick2] ... [nickN]
Makes X invite you to your channel.
Syntax: /msg x invite <#channel>
Suspends a user's access to X on your channel's userlist for the specified period of time, at the specified level if given. If a level is not specified, the default suspension level used will be the access level of the issuer. You can only SUSPEND someone with access lower than your own. The maximum duration is 372 days (8928 hours, 535680 minutes).
* Time Values:
D = days
H = hours
M = minutes
Syntax: /msg x suspend <#channel> <username> <duration> [level]
* Duration Example: "5 d" = 5 days (enter without quotations)
Unsuspends a user's access to X on your channel's userlist. You can only UNSUSPEND someone with access lower than your own, provided that the suspension level is also less than or equal to your own access level.
Syntax: /msg x unsuspend <#channel> <username>
Adds a specific *!*user@*.host to the X banlist of your channel. You may place a ban on a nick if the person is online or ban their *!*user@*.host if the person is not online. Bans that cover a broader range than previously set bans will replace previous bans. Any user in the channel that matches the added ban will be kicked out if the ban level is 75+. The duration is in hours, with a maximum of 336 hours (2 weeks). The ban level can range from 1 to your own level. The ban reason can be a maximum of 128 characters long. If no duration or level is specified, the default duration will be 3 hours, and the level will be 75.
* Ban Levels:
1-74 = Prevents the user from having ops (+o) on the channel.
75+ = Prevents the user from being in the channel at all.
Syntax: /msg x ban <#channel> <nick | *!*user@*.host> [duration] [level] [reason]
Removes a *!*user@*.host from the X banlist of your channel and any matching bans from the channel banlist also. You can only remove bans from X's banlist that are equal to or lower than your own access. To search X's banlist, refer to the LBANLIST command (level 0).
Syntax: /msg x unban <#channel> <nick | *!*user@*.host>
Makes X kick someone from your channel; reason is optional. Your nick will be placed in the kick message.
Syntax: /msg x kick <#channel> <nick> [reason]
Makes X change the topic in your channel (maximum of 145 characters) and includes your username, enclosed in parentheses, at the beginning of the topic. NOTE: If a DESCRIPTION or URL has been set and AUTOTOPIC is ON, the channel topic will be overwritten in 30 minutes, unless the channel is idle.
Syntax: /msg x topic <#channel> <topic>
Shows the channel banlist. This command works whether you are on the channel or not.
Syntax: /msg x banlist <#channel>
This does the same thing as level 200 STATUS, except it will not report channel modes (+nt etc.) to anyone with access below 200.
Syntax: /msg x status #channel
Can look up the access for a certain person or a string. The information indicates level, suspension status and level if suspended, and when the user was last seen. To see all users, use: /msg x access <#channel> * If there are more than 15 entries, go to http://cservice.undernet.org/live/ and login to see the entire list by clicking on the "Channel Information" link and submitting the channel name. You can also use and mix these options instead of a username or string to get specific results.
* Access options:
Shows the access level of a single user.
Syntax: /msg x access <#channel> <username>
Shows only users above the given level.
Syntax: /msg x access <#channel> -min <level>
Shows only users below the given level.
Syntax: /msg x access <#channel> -max <level>
Shows only users with the OP AUTOMODE flag.
Syntax: /msg x access <#channel> -op
Shows only users with the VOICE AUTOMODE flag.
Syntax: /msg x access <#channel> -voice
Shows only users with no AUTOMODE flag (None).
Syntax: /msg x access <#channel> -none
Shows who last modified the access listing.
Syntax: /msg x access <#channel> -modif
CHANINFO or INFO
Displays whether or not a channel is registered, to whom, and the currently set DESCRIPTION and URL, if any.
Syntax: /msg x chaninfo <#channel>
/msg x info <#channel>
Displays help information on a given command.
Syntax: /msg x help [command]
Displays information about a username such as their nick and user@host if they are currently online, their language and invisible settings, last seen information, and whether they may have been suspended by a CService Administrator. If used on yourself, it also shows your registered email address, the last hostmask (nick!userid@host format) used when the username was logged into, and lists all channels which you have access on (only CService and you can see this information, not other users). If you wish to make this information hidden to the public, refer to the SET INVISIBLE command (level 0).
Syntax: /msg x info <username>
Searches X's banlist for a certain string. Use * to see the whole list, or specify a *!*user@*.host to find a specific ban. If there are more than 15 entries, go to http://cservice.undernet.org/live/ and login to see the entire list by clicking on the "Channel Information" link and submitting the channel name.
Syntax: /msg x lbanlist <#channel> <* | *!*user@*.host>
This loads your access listing into memory and authenticates you on ALL channels which you have access on simultaneously.
Syntax: /msg email@example.com login <username> <password>
Displays X's message of the day.
Syntax: /msg x motd
This allows you to change the password for your username. You must be authenticated with your old password before the command can be issued to change to the new password.
1. Passwords are case-sensitive. For example: "CService" is not "cservice."
2. Passwords can be more than one word long, allowing you to have a sentence or phrase as your password to increase the difficulty of it being discovered. We encourage you to take advantage of this feature. The maximum length is 50 characters.
For example, a password can be: "Undernet Channel Service"
Syntax: /msg firstname.lastname@example.org newpass <new password>
At this level, and above, you can remove yourself from any channel, as long as you are not the channel manager (500 access level in that channel). Managers wishing to remove themselves will need to purge their channel.
Syntax: /msg x remuser <#channel> <your username>
Makes X list channels where the given search parameters match set keywords on the channel, if any. The use of wildcards are not required.
Syntax: /msg x search <search parameter>
Changes special modes for your username.
Syntax: /msg x set <variable> <value>
* Variables and Values:
This is a personal setting that allows you to toggle the visibility of your username information, retrievable from the INFO command, to be visible or hidden. To learn more about the available information, refer to the INFO command (level 0).
Syntax: /msg x set invisible <on|off>
Changes the language for X's replies to you.
Syntax: /msg x set lang <language code>
Code - Language
· ar - Arabic

· en - English
· es - Spanish
· fr - French
· hu - Hungarian
· it - Italian
· nl - Dutch*
· no - Norwegian
· pt - Portuguese*
· ro - Romanian
· tr - Turkish
* = these languages are not available yet, but we plan to support them soon.
Shows all the commands you can use on a channel, according to your access level. If no channel is specified, then only the level 0 commands are shown.
Syntax: /msg x showcommands [#channel]
Shows X's ignore list. Ignores happen when someone intentionally or accidentally floods X. The time length is 60 minutes.
Syntax: /msg x showignore
An alternate method allowing you to confirm or deny support for a channel application which you are listed as a supporter on. Upon authenticating, X will notify you of any channel applications that you are listed as a supporter on and will also notify you of this SUPPORT command. Alternatively, you can choose to view the application on the web to see more information about it, post an objection, and confirm or deny your support from there. The command will not be effective if you are not listed on a channel as a supporter, or a channel does not have a pending application on the web.
Syntax: /msg x support <#channel> <yes|no>
Displays whether or not a person is logged in, and if so displays their username, and also indicates whether or not they are an Official CService Administrator or Representative, and/or an IRC Operator.
Syntax: /msg x verify <nick>
