IRC Commands

Commands on IRC are all prefixed by the slash (/) and they require a space between the actual command and the following parameters. When you use the commands, you don't have to use CAPS.

Basic Commands: These will help you get started on IRC
/NICK MyNick Will change your nick to MyNick
/NickServ REGISTER password The REGISTER command allows you to register a nickname with NickServ, and have NickServ protect it. The format for the REGISTER command is:

/NickServ REGISTER password

Note the fact that the nickname does not appear anywhere on that command... NickServ will attempt to register the nickname you are using. Also please note that the password is CaSe SeNsItIvE. That means that to NickServ A123 and a123 are different.

Please make sure you note your nickname password, and do not give it away to anyone... DALnet personnel will not ask for your password, unless you ask them for it first. You can tell they are actually DALnet officials by doing a /whois on them, and looking if they are an IRCOP. If you forget your nickname password, please head to #OperHelp and ask for a CSOP. They can help you retrieve your password.

Also note that NickServ will unregister nicknames not used for 25 days.

It is also a good idea to set KILL ON for your new nickname. That way anyone not in the access list, needs to IDENTIFY with the nickname password.

This setting allows you to prevent unauthorized users from using your nickname. When someone connects using your nickname, NickServ will look through the access list looking for a matching address. If one is not found, NickServ will ask the user for a password. If the correct password is not supplied within 60 seconds, NickServ will change that person's nickname to a 'Guest' nickname. Literally, they will be called something such as Guest768543, Guest55998, and so on.

To enable KILL protection you type:


Similarly to disable it you type:


The KILL switch can help you make your nickname very secure. It is a smart idea to turn it on when registering a new nick, and also enabling it for all your existing nicknames.
/NickServ IDENTIFY [nickname] password If NickServ prompts you for a password, then you must reply, using this format:

/NickServ IDENTIFY [nickname] password

The nickname is optional. You should use it if you want to use the IDENTIFY for a nickname other than the one you are currently using.

If the password is correct then NickServ will tell you that you have successfully identified to your nickname, in which case you have full access to all commands. If not, then you have entered an incorrect password. Please note that passwords are CaSe SeNsItIvE, thus a123 is NOT the same as A123 as far as NickServ is concerned.

If you have trouble remembering your password, you can go to #OperHelp and ask for a CSOP.
/MemoServ SEND recipient message Using the SEND command, you can send a memo to another user, or to a registered channel. The format is:

/MemoServ SEND recipient message

The recipient can be a registered nickname or a registered channel. Note that in both cases, some settings available to the nickname or channel owner might be set to prevent sending a memo.

If you send a memo to a channel, then that memo will go to ALL AOPs SOPs and the FOUNDER, if no options are set by the channel founder. To send a memo to all channel SOPs and the channel FOUNDER use the SENDSOP command.

Please note that the message may not be longer that 255 characters. MemoServ will let you know if the memo you are trying to send is longer that 255 characters. If so, you will need to shorten it and resend it. If you are sending to a channel, do not forget to include th # sign that indicates it is a channel.
/MemoServ LIST You use the LIST command to view all messages in your "INBOX". Messages have a number, with which you refer to them. All new message (The ones not read or manually deleted) will have a * by them to indicate they are new.

Also you will see who sent the message. Then you can decide which to view, using the READ command.

The format for the LIST is:

/MemoServ LIST
/MemoServ READ #number You use the READ command to view messages sent to you. Before using it you must know the memo nubmer.

To obtain that you must use the LIST command.

The format is:

/MemoServ READ #number
/MemoServ SENDSOP #Channel message You use the SENDSOP command to send a message to all channel SOPs and the FOUNDER.

The format is the same as that of the standard SEND command, only that the recipient must be a channel. The # sign is needed to indicate that, so please do not forget to include it.

The message text must be less than 255 characters long, else MemoServ will return an error, and you will need to resend the message.
/PART Will close your connection to the channel you are in, without closing the connection to the server. You will use this command when you wish to change to another Channel.
/JOIN #RoomName Will let you join the channel #RoomName. Remember to use the /PART command first.
/WHOIS nickname Shows information about someone. Helps you locate someone.
