Module request for +g or gag.

Post by adam15906 » Wed Aug 25, 2004 3:02 pm

If anyone here has used QuakeIRCd they will notice that it has +g channel mode for Gag. What The Hell is Gag you ask? Well its pretty much like a private +m channel mode. It temporarily disables the person from talking if they are +v and under. +h and above and NA's and IRC Admins(QuakeIRCd Only) can evade +g. Also there is +L which I don't remember seeing in UnrealIRCd where it would link two channels so if you join #Lounge-Files it could force join you into #Lounge-Chat or something and this is only settable by +q.

Both features already exist in UnrealIRCd. Please read the documentation.

~q quiet People matching these bans can join but are unable to speak, unless they have +v or higher. Ex: ~q:*!*@blah.blah.com

L <Chan> If the amount set by +l has been reached, users will be sent to this channel

Hm... I notice a slight difference: he mentions gag even affects voice users... Unreal doesn't seem to have this, but I see no reason why voices should ever be unable to speak (except maybe usermode -z users in a +z channel :P ).

I agree, if a +v mode is used as it's intended to be used then a simple -v+b would work as well. If a +v user deserves a +g .. then they deserve a -v.

ok the +L makes sense but I see its if the +l is exceeded of that channel, in QuakeIRCd its just if you join the +Led channel no matter what you join the other channel.

Well, since the creation of channels is dynamic, there are no modes kept if there arent any users. I know what you mean, however. So I created a small bot to join the +L'd channel, set +lL 1 #redirectedchan, and there we go :)

It's all fine unless the bot dies.
