  5. Hello, I have this bot on my channel. I am in his database, but when I ask to op me, he does not respond. What can I do

1. What are the most common IRC-commands ?

Joining a channel   /join <channel >
    /j < channel >
 
Leaving a channel   /part [<channel> < text > ]
 
Changing you nick   /nick <new-nick>
 
Opening a private conversation   /query < nick > [text]
 
Quitting IRC   /quit [text]

2. When I chat, I see all those strange words and tokens, what do they mean?

Chatters are lazy people by default. That's why they use a lot of abreviations. The most common are ...
LOL   Laughing Out Loud
ROFL   Rolling On the Floor Laughing
*G*   Grin
*BG*   Big Grin
AFK   Away From Keyboard
BRB   Be Right Back
BBL   Be Back later
BTW   By The Way
IRL   In Real Life
IMHO   In My Humble Opinion


And because text can not display emotions, chatters use 'smileys'. The trick is to place you head on your left shoulder. A little face shoud appear. The most common are ...
:)   You Smile
:(   You are Sad
;)   You blink
:P   You pok your tongue out
:/   You are VERY unhappy

3. When I try to connect to a server, I get "Connection Attempt Time Out". What can I do ?

Open your mIRC and hit Alt-O .
The "mIRC Options" tab will appear.
Choose "Options" under the "Connect Tab" and increase your connection time.


4. Help !! I'm banned from a channel and I can't get in.

Everybody can start their own channel, and can decide their own rules for who should be banned or should not be banned. Normally, when you are banned from a channel, the operator (@) who banned you had a pretty good reason.

This is what you _CAN_ do when you are banned.

  1. Do not go back to that channel and chat somewhere else.
  2. Wait until the ban expires (usually someone removes it after a while).
  3. Private the operator who banned you and ask him if you can rejoin.
    Sort things out with him, maybe he will let you back in (command: /query < nickname > )
  4. If this does not help, you can try to contact the channel-owner.
    You can see his login by using /msg k chaninfo #channelname

What you should NOT do.

  • Do NOT contact an Oper with your problem. Opers are NOT allowed to interfere in channel-matters.
  • Do NOT mail to the abuse-team. They are NOT allowed to interfere in channel-matters.

Everyone can set their OWN channel rules. The idea is that KreyNet itself will not interfere with these rules, so if someone wants to ban you for whatever reason, he or she can do so.

5. Hello, I have this bot on my channel. I am in his database, but when I ask to op me, he does not respond.

First of all, we do not officially give support on bots. The only services we maintain is K, but everybody is free to run their own bots on kreynet - as long as it is not exagerated and not disturbing other chatters or our network or the admin of the server. So you should contact the owner of the bot for help. If you have questions about K, see further on the site, or join #irchelp.

But to help you, here are some hints for the most commonly used bots:

  1. Be sure to use the right OP-command (command: /msg < bot > OP < password > [channel]).
  2. Be sure you use the right password. (It is case-sensitive. 'password' is not the same as 'PASSWORD').
  3. It could be possible your host does not match with the host you have in the bot.
    You can correct this with the IDENT-command (command: /msg < bot> IDENT < password > < handle >).
    The handle is the 'nick' by which you are registrated in the bot.
    Then try to op you again.
    NOTE: IDENT has been disabled by default in a bot. If the bot does not returns anything, contact the person who gave you the bot.
  4. Make sure you still are in the bot's database. (works only if your host is the same as the one that's in the bot).
    You can do this by applying the HELP-command (command: /msg < bot > HELP).
    If you do NOT get a reply to this, you are not in the bot's database.
    Contact the person who gave you the bot for more details.
  5. Contact the person who gave you the bot.
  6. join #irchelp and ask for help there.
