Can I limit users or make a secret (or even private) channel?

Yes, you can make either a secret or private channel by applying the channel mode +s (secret) or +p (private).  In most cases, +s (secret) should be used.

When a channel is secret (+s):

  • The Channel will not be visible in /LIST
  • Users who are not in the channel, won’t see you in it, by using a /WHOIS
  • /WHO #Channel output will not reveal user list to outside users.
  • Since the channel will not be visible in /LIST, the TOPIC will not be visible to outsiders either.
