Channels Module


This module provides channel related support for the bot. Without it, you won't be able to make the bot join a channel or save channel specific userfile information.

  1. Config file settings

1. Config file settings

Put this line into your Eggdrop configuration file to load the channels module:

loadmodule channels

There are also some variables you can set in your config file:

set chanfile"LamestBot.chan"

Enter here the filename where dynamic channel settings are stored.

set force-expire 0

Set this setting to 1 if you want your bot to expire bans/exempts/invites set by other opped bots on the channel.

set share-greet 0

Set this setting to 1 if you want your bot to share user greets with other bots on the channel if sharing user data.

set use-info 1

Set this setting to 1 if you want to allow users to store an info line.

channel add #channel { SETTINGS }

Add each static channel you want your bot to sit in using this command. There are many different possible settings you can insert into this command, which are explained below.

chanmode +/-<modes>

This setting makes the bot enforce channel modes. It will always add the +<modes> and remove the -<modes> modes.

idle-kick 0

This setting will make the bot check every minute for idle users. Set this to 0 to disable idle check.

stopnethack-mode 0

This setting will make the bot de-op anyone who enters the channel with serverops. There are seven different modes for this settings:

0 turn off
1 isoptest (allow serverop if registered op)
2 wasoptest (allow serverop if user had op before split)
3 allow serverop if isop or wasop
4 allow serverop if isop and wasop.
5 If the channel is -bitch, see stopnethack-mode 3
If the channel is +bitch, see stopnethack-mode 1
6 If the channel is -bitch, see stopnethack-mode 2
If the channel is +bitch, see stopnethack-mode 4
revenge-mode 0

This settings defines how the bot should punish bad users when revenging. There are four possible settings:

0 Deop the user.
1 Deop the user and give them the +d flag for the channel.
2 Deop the user, give them the +d flag for the channel, and kick them.
3 Deop the user, give them the +d flag for the channel, kick, and ban them.
ban-time 120

Set here how long temporary bans will last (in minutes). If you set this setting to 0, the bot will never remove them.

exempt-time 60

Set here how long temporary exempts will last (in minutes). If you set this setting to 0, the bot will never remove them. The bot will check the exempts every X minutes, but will not remove the exempt if a ban is set on the channel that matches that exempt. Once the ban is removed, then the exempt will be removed the next time the bot checks. Please note that this is an IRCnet feature.

invite-time 60

Set here how long temporary invites will last (in minutes). If you set this setting to 0, the bot will never remove them. The bot will check the invites every X minutes, but will not remove the invite if a channel is set to +i. Once the channel is -i then the invite will be removed the next time the bot checks. Please note that this is an IRCnet feature.

need-op { putserv "PRIVMSG #lamest :op me cos i'm lame!" }

This setting will make the bot run the script enclosed in braces if it does not have ops. This must be shorter than 120 characters. If you use scripts like getops.tcl or botnetop.tcl, you don't need to set this setting.

need-invite { putserv "PRIVMSG #lamest :let me in!" }

This setting will make the bot run the script enclosed in braces if it needs an invite to the channel. This must be shorter than 120 characters. If you use scripts like getops.tcl or botnetop.tcl, you don't need to set this setting.

need-key { putserv "PRIVMSG #lamest :let me in!" }

This setting will make the bot run the script enclosed in braces if it needs the key to the channel. This must be shorter than 120 characters. If you use scripts like getops.tcl or botnetop.tcl, you don't need to set this setting.

need-unban { putserv "PRIVMSG #lamest :let me in!" }

This setting will make the bot run the script enclosed in braces if it needs to be unbanned on the channel. This must be shorter than 120 characters. If you use scripts like getops.tcl or botnetop.tcl, you don't need to set this setting.

need-limit { putserv "PRIVMSG #lamest :let me in!" }

This setting will make the bot run the script enclosed in braces if it needs the limit to be raised on the channel. This must be shorter than 120 characters. If you use scripts like getops.tcl or botnetop.tcl, you don't need to set this setting.

flood-chan 10:60

Set here how many channel messages in how many seconds from one host constitutes a flood. Setting this to 0 or 0:0 disables text flood protection for the channel.

flood-deop 3:10

Set here how many deops in how many seconds from one host constitutes a flood. Setting this to 0 or 0:0 disables deop flood protection for the channel.

flood-kick 3:10

Set here how many kicks in how many seconds from one host constitutes a flood. Setting this to 0 or 0:0 disables kick flood protection for the channel.

flood-join 5:60

Set here how many joins in how many seconds from one host constitutes a flood. Setting this to 0 or 0:0 disables join flood protection for the channel.

flood-ctcp 3:60

Set here how many channel ctcps in how many seconds from one host constitutes a flood. Setting this to 0 or 0:0 disables ctcp flood protection for the channel.

flood-nick 5:60

Set here how many nick changes in how many seconds from one host constitutes a flood. Setting this to 0 or 0:0 disables nick flood protection for the channel.

channel set <chan> +/-<setting>

There are many different options for channels which you can define. They can be enabled or disabled by a plus or minus in front of them.

A complete list of all available channel settings:

enforcebans

When a ban is set, kick people who are on the channel and match the ban?

dynamicbans

Only activate bans on the channel when necessary? This keeps the channel's ban list from getting excessively long. The bot still remembers every ban, but it only activates a ban on the channel when it sees someone join who matches that ban.

userbans

Allow bans to be made by users directly? If turned off, the bot will require all bans to be made through the bot's console.

dynamicexempts

Only activate exempts on the channel when necessary? This keeps the channel's exempt list from getting excessively long. The bot still remembers every exempt, but it only activates a exempt on the channel when it sees a ban set that matches the exempt. The exempt remains active on the channel for as long as the ban is still active.

userexempts

Allow exempts to be made by users directly? If turned off, the bot will require all exempts to be made through the bot's console.

dynamicinvites

Only activate invites on the channel when necessary? This keeps the channel's invite list from getting excessively long. The bot still remembers every invite, but the invites are only activated when the channel is set to invite only and a user joins after requesting an invite. Once set, the invite remains until the channel goes to -i.

userinvites

Allow invites to be made by users directly? If turned off, the bot will require all invites to be made through the bot's console.

autoop

Op users with the +o flag as soon as they join the channel? This is insecure and not recommended.

autohalfop

Halfop users with the +l flag as soon as they join the channel? This is insecure and not recommended.

bitch

Only let users with the +o flag have op on the channel?

greet

Say a user's info line when they join the channel?

protectops

Re-op a user with the +o flag if they get deopped?

protecthalfops

Re-halfop a user with the +l flag if they get dehalfopped?

protectfriends

Re-op a user with the +f flag if they get deopped?

statuslog

Log the channel status line every 5 minutes? This shows the bot's status on the channel (op, voice, etc.), The channel's modes, and the number of +m/+o/+v/+n/+b/+e/+I users on the channel. A sample status line follows:

[01:40] @#lamest (+istn) : [m/1 o/1 v/4 n/7 b/1 e/5 I/7]

revenge

Remember people who deop/kick/ban the bot, valid ops, or friends and punish them? Users with the +f flag are exempt from revenge.

revengebot

This is similar to to the 'revenge' option, but it only triggers if a bot gets deopped, kicked or banned.

autovoice

Voice users with the +v flag when they join the channel?

secret

Prevent this channel from being listed on the botnet?

shared

Share channel-related user info for this channel?

cycle

Cycle the channel when it has no ops?

dontkickops

Do you want the bot not to be able to kick users who have the +o flag, letting them kick-flood for instance to protect the channel against clone attacks?

inactive

This prevents the bot from joining the channel (or makes it leave the channel if it is already there). It can be useful to make the bot leave a channel without losing it's settings, channel-specific user flags, channel bans, and without affecting sharing.

seen

Respond to seen requests in the channel? The seen module must be loaded for this to work.

nodesynch

Allow non-ops to perform channel modes? This can stop the bot from fighting with services such as ChanServ, or from kicking IRCops when setting channel modes without having ops.

The following settings are used as default values when you .+chan #chan or .tcl channel add #chan. Look in the section above for explanation of every option.
