[edit] Examples

Hey, what about adding an "example" column or section for each of the commands like:

Suppose you want to register your username "MyGreatUsername" (spaces are not allowed) with the password "secret". Log in as "MyGreatUsername". To register type:
/msg nickserv register secret
Every time you log back in your must type:
/msg nickserv identify secret
Depending on what chat program you use, you may program it so that it executes this action automatically every time you log in. If you get disconnected and your nickname is still present, you must first kill your "ghosted" nickname:
/msg nickserv ghost secret
You can then use your registered nickname:
/nick MyGreatUsername
/msg nickserv identify secret
If someone impersonates you or otherwise uses your registered nickname you can get your nickname back with the release and recover commands:
/msg nickserv recover secret
/msg nickserv release secret

The examples are not as critical for chanserv commands. --Stux 20:27, 4 December 2005 (UTC)

I have added the above example. --Stux 02:44, 7 December 2005 (UTC)
Also, a brief discussion, of the /join, /nick, /msg, /me, /quit commands might be useful in this page too. (I have to go do laundry now.) --Stux 01:57, 5 December 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Help Nav Template?

Oooo... I was just thinking, perhaps a Help Navigation Template and/or a Help Category might be great to make it easy for users to navigate the help and find what they need... ? --Stux 20:32, 4 December 2005 (UTC)

I considered that, but there are so few help pages that all of them can be seen at a glance in Special:Allpages. I'll do it if there's a concensus, though. — Lapper (talk) 20:35, 4 December 2005 (UTC)
I was just gonna add your list of all the help stuff Lapper has made to my post. Yes they are easily accessible from there, but these are Help pages! Generally these are meant for people who generally may still need to know what the Special Pages button is for. For the rest of us... I personally wouldn't have even thought to look there. I think visibility is key. --Stux 20:39, 4 December 2005 (UTC)
I will copy this discussion to Help talk:Contents where it belongs. --Stux 22:12, 4 December 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Voice Command

What does the Voice Command do? --TheThin 14:25, 26 June 2006 (UTC)

VOICE is a privilege grantable by a user with CMD VOICE (8) access on a specific channel or higher. Its only purpose is the ability to speak in a +m channel without being an operator. It is different from a quiet ban (+q) in that VOICE is a privilege, and a quiet ban is a demotion. — Lapper (talk) 14:36, 26 June 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Freenode modes

How do you make these happen? Do you type in example: /chanserv t? TheThin 12:26, 3 August 2006 (UTC)

...still no answer... TheThin 18:53, 15 August 2006 (UTC)
People don't answer anymore I guess. I found out NOW. /mode +t /mode +m /mode +anything TheThin 13:58, 22 August 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Format

How do you change the text color in your message (i.e. from this to this)? --Mario2.PNG Super Martyo boing! 21:40, 24 June 2007 (UTC)
