Hey everyone :D
so both gottem and k4be have doing a amazing job of making third party modules for unrealircd.

But i am just wondering if any "scripter" have future plans for modules in the future?

(sidenote) if someone could make a module that users can type !help and it will ping / pm all users, would be cool :D

what do you mean by pining or sending privmsgs to "all users"? on the network? on local server?
or do you mean only opers should get something? what if a channel has it's own eggdrop and that is triggered by !help, would the opers get a "ping" ?
i presume, you didn't think enough about this. :)

Yeah, i described my requested module wrongly, hehe it was 5am in the morning with me, i hadnt slept xD.

Anyway yeah, i'll redescribe it.

(UserA) Types !999

it pm's all IRCops on the network (all servers)

or it can ping all users

is that described a bit better?

And what would be the flood protection for that specific module? I can imagine a user typing !999 endlessly just to annoy IRCops.
Would unregistered users be able to use it?
And ping all users would be a bit bad for the users that have nothing to do with network administration.

still.. this can be done with a bot.. why make and add such module to the ircd?:o
and i still don't get the purpose of this command.. i could imagine a !help command in a specific channel like in #help, someone join, no ops or helpers online, so someone would use !help and then it would notify other opers..
but as i said.. an eggdrop could handle such things.
