Frequently Asked Questions
There are many benefits to registering a Username (or “account”) on X:
- You can enable a Hidden Host by setting usermode +x (/mode MyNick +x) so that your Hostname/IP are not visible to others and are instead replaced with Username.users.IRC4Fun.net
- You can join channels that only allow registered and logged in users (channel mode +r)
- You can be given access on registered channels
- You can register your own channel
- You can send a NOTE to other registered users (like a Memo)
- You can send Private Messages to users who only see messages from Registered users
- Since nicknames are not “owned”, you can see who a user is logged in as; with a
/msg X verify Nickname
- It’s FREE & Easy!
- EU Users: You must be 16 years of age, or older to register an account on X.
- US Users: You must be 13 years of age, or older to register an account on X.
- You must provide a valid email address.
To register a Username (or “account”) on X, type:
/msg X HELLO Username YourValid@email.com YourValid@email.com
If one of your Channel Operators has decided to “takeover” your Registered Channel, there are multiple ways to stop them.
If you are the channel Manager (access 500) or have a higher access level than the operator attempting the “takeover”, you can:
/msg X suspend #Channel Username
/msg X remuser #Channel Username
You will then need to possibly UNBAN yourself with X, if you are banned. If restrictive modes are preventing you from joining, you can use X’s CLEARMODE command.
If your Username (or “account”) is globally Suspended, there are a few reasons that may be the cause (or reason):
- Your email address is invalid, or disposable.
- You have registered more than ONE (1) Username
- Your username has been used to conduct activities against IRC4Fun Policies or Services Guidelines.
You should open a Support Ticket here to inquire about, or appeal.
If you need to update the email address associated with your X Username (or “account”), you will need to use the Web Interface.
*You will need to be able to access your “old” email and “new” email to verify your identity. If you can no longer access that email account, you will need to perform other verification(s) in your request. (A CService Representative will contact you for further verification options, if other verification options are available.)
PLEASE REMEMBER, NEVER PROVIDE YOUR PASSWORD TO ANYONE CLAIMING TO BE IRC4Fun Staff OR CService Staff – WE WILL NEVER ASK YOU FOR YOUR PASSWORD; AS WE CANNOT SEE IT OR VERIFY IT DUE TO ENHANCED ENCRYPTION.
You can register your Username (or “account”) with the following conditions and command:
- EU Users must be 16 years of age, or older to register a Username (or “account”)
- US Users must be 13 years of age, or older to register a Username (or “account”)
- Registering a Username (or “account”) does not mean you “own” a nickname. Nicknames are on a first-come, first-served basis. Nickname registration is not available on IRC4Fun.
To register an account, type on IRC4Fun:
/msg X HELLO Username YourValid@email.com YourValid@email.com
There are several ways that you can login to X, but the method that works for you will depend on your IRC client. Most support all of the below methods:
/msg X@services.IRC4Fun.net LOGIN Username Password
/CS LOGIN Username Password
/NS LOGIN Username Password
/X LOGIN Username Password
To add a user to your channel’s access list, use:
/msg X ADDUSER #channel username level
To remove a user from your channel’s access list, use:
/msg X REMUSER #channel username
Both commands require you to have an access level of 400 or more. You can only add users with an access level lower than your own, and cannot remove users with higher level access than you.
A user mask looks like: nickname!identd@ip/host
The Ban command is:
/mode #channel +b mask
or if you’re using mIRC, you may use:
/ban #channel mask
If you utilize X, the syntax is:
/msg X ban #channel mask duration level reason
To ban a nickname, use a mask like this: nickname!*@* .
if the nickname length is more than 9 characters and you need to use X use this mask instead:
first8chars*!*@*, eg: if the nickname was Easterbunny, set ban on mask: Easterbu*!*@*
To ban an identd, use a mask like this: *!identd@*
To ban an ip/host, use a mask like this: *!*@ip/host
Remark: * replaces any number of characters, ? replaces a single character.
