Accessing the server[編輯]
To access our IRC server, you will need an IRC client. An IRC client is a program that you need to download to access IRC servers, such as our server or freenode, for example. While downloading an IRC client is strongly recommended, it is not a must-have. If you do not have an IRC client or are unable/unwilling to download one, you can use our CGI:IRC gateway at irc.shoutwiki.com.
CGI:IRC's default settings are usually OK - you'll want to change your IRC nickname from "SWnnn" (where n = some randomly chosen number) into a more descriptive one. Please remember that IRC does not allow spaces in nicknames, but you'll need to use underscores instead. For example, Jack Phoenix would not be allowed as an IRC nick, but Jack or Jack_Phoenix would be.
Not all IRC clients are equal. While some older ones, such as mIRC, might be popular, they might not be a sensible choice in today's IRC world. You'll most likely want a client that supports UTF-8 encoding. Good modern IRC clients include, but are not limited to the following:
- XChat — the official Windows build is shareware, but unofficial builds are free.
- ChatZilla — not a separate IRC client per se, but rather an extension to the popular Mozilla Firefox browser.
- Opera — the Opera browser has a built-in IRC client.
IRC Commands and Modes[編輯]
The following are some common commands and modes that you may encounter while on IRC. If you have questions about something that is not on the list, please ask in the #ShoutWiki channel and someone will be able to assist you.
Typing "@staff [message]" on a channel will alert online ShoutWiki staff members to that channel, with the message if one is provided. The "@staff" must start the line, or else it will not notify staff members.
|CYCLE||CYCLE <chan1>,<chan2>||Cycles the given channel(s) -- basically issues a PART and then an immediate JOIN afterwards. You may have to use /QUOTE CYCLE, depending on your client.|
|INVITE||INVITE <nick> [channel]||Invites someone into a channel, by default the current one. Requires chanop.|
|IRCOPS||IRCOPS||Displays a listing of all online IRCops (ShoutWiki staff members who have control over the IRC network)|
|JOIN||JOIN <chan1>,<chan2> <key1>,<key2>
|Joins the selected channels. If the channel requires a keyword, then it will use the key specified. As a special case, /JOIN 0 makes you part all of your channels.|
|KICK||KICK <channel> <user> [reason]||Removes a user from a channel. Requires halfop. If no reason is given, it uses your nick as the reason.|
|MODE||MODE <channel/user> <mode>||Sets a mode on a channel or user. See below for settable modes. Note that you can only set user modes on yourself.|
|NICK||NICK <nickname>||Changes your nickname. To prevent flooding, you may only change your nick 3 times every 120 seconds.|
|REMOVE||REMOVE <channel> <user> [reason]||Removes a user from a channel, preventing auto-rejoin. Requires chanop.|
|Ignores messages from a user or a list of users at the server level. Using /SILENCE without a parameter displays your current silence list.|
|TOPIC||TOPIC <channel> [topic]||Displays or changes the topic of the channel. Changing the topic requires halfop if the channel is +t, otherwise anyone can change the topic.|
These are modes that may be set upon yourself via /MODE <yournick> <mode>. You cannot set user modes on a different user.
|d||Deaf||Makes it so that you cannot send or receive channel messages|
|i||Invisible||Makes it so that you are not displayed in /WHO searches|
|p||Private||Makes it so that channels you belong to are hidden from /WHOIS and /WHO|

|R||Registered only||Allows you to only receive PRIVMSGs/NOTICEs from registered (+r) users|
|T||CTCP block||Prevents you from receiving CTCPs|
These are modes that may be set upon channels via that /MODE command. They all require some sort of access to set or unset, which is denoted by the access column (h = halfop, o = chanop, and q = owner).

Occasionally, you may wish to block a user from joining or speaking in your channel. There are multiple ways to do this, outlined below.
Note that these "flags" may be used for the +e mode as well, to give exemptions to people for specific bantypes.
|MODE +b <nick!user@host>||Ban||Prevents the user from joining the channel. If they are already on the channel, they may not speak unless they have voice access or above|
|MODE +b ~q:<nick!user@host>||Quiet||Prevents the user from speaking unless they have voice access or above. The /QUIET command may be used as an alias for this (see /HELPOP quiet for more information about that)|
|MODE +b ~n:<nick!user@host>||Nickchange||Prevents the user from changing his/her nick unless they have voice access or above|
|MODE +b ~c:[prefix]<channel>||Channel||Prevents users on the specified channel, or users with access according to prefix or above on the specified channel, from joining this one|
|MODE +b ~r:<realname>||Realname||Prevents users with matching realnames from joining|
|MODE +b ~f:<channel>:<nick!user@host>||Forward||Users banned from this channel will be forwarded to the specified one instead|
|MODE +b ~S:<channel>||Sync||If a user is banned in the specified channel, they will be banned in this one as well. This does not copy the other channel's banlist to yours, so changes made to their banlist after the sync will affect your channel as well|
