what follows is for sure due to my ignorance on administering IRC. I did RTFM, but I have gaps in my general IRC knowledge, therefore I apologize in advance. Also sorry for the long post.Scenario
I've created a channel that need to be secret and invite only, ie only the people that I want should be in and people from the outside shall not know who's inside. In order to prevent anyone invited to change the channel I've set mlock to +ntNGCim.The problem
When I disconnect with the founder user, that user is locked out from the channel when at least another user is still in. Since I'm the founder, I would have expected ChanServ to allow me to rejoin anytime. If nobody is in the channel, the first user that joins locks the channel down, even if not the founder. That user does not receive op status, as I can read the message
*** Mode change "-o spintest" on channel #channel by ChanServ
Nevertheless that user can invite anybody, including the founder.
Reading the manual, I've notice the command
Syntax: INVITE channel
Tells ChanServ to invite you into the given channel.
By default, limited to AOPs or those with level 5 and above
on the channel.
I send the command, nothing happens. Doh. RTFM. Ok, I need to be level 5 and up. But hey, as a founder of that channel, I should have the highest level, how comes? Well then
/CS aop #channel add Spinwing founder
-ChanServ- Spinwing added to #channel AOP list.
then ask for invitation
/CS invite #channel
I'm pretty sure that when I'll read the answer I will slap hard my hand on the forehead, but at the moment my brain is in doh mode..
