We’ve decided to re-activate the 2 Channel Modes that were previously not available when we returned to Unreal IRCd.
- +a designates a Channel User as a Protected User (thus they cannot be kicked, banned, or deop’d by lower level +o Operators).
- +q designates a Channel User as a Channel Founder (thus they cannot be kicked, banned, or deop’d by lower level +a or +o Operators)
As a result of these changes, Services will be updated channel by channel. The Services Team will be re-assigning +q (Founder) level flags for Channel Founders in X, starting today. (This will allow Channel Founder’s to get +q as well as +o after IDENTIFY’ing to N) The +q flag being added for Founders is the ONLY changes CService Staff will be making – if you want to give someone +a, you will need to add the +a flag to their X flags.
If you have any Questions or Comments, please /join #Help and speak with a CService (Channel Service) Representative.
