    Advanced IRC - Create Your Own Channel

    The channel operator (also referred to as a "chop" or "chanop") on a given channel is considered to 'own' that channel. In recognition of this status, channel operators are endowed with certain powers which enable them to keep control and some sort of sanity in their channel.

    - J. Oikarinen, D. Reed; Internet Relay Chat Protocol; RFC 1459; May 1993.


    Summary: You can easily become the operator of your own channel.

    You can create your own IRC channel by typing "/join #channel-name", where that channel name doesn't already exist on the network. For example:

    /join funfunfun

    When you create a channel, you are automatically made the operator of the channel. You can then invite friends to join the channel, or wait and see if others join of their own accord.

    When you create a channel, you should use the "/topic" command to specify a one sentence description of the channel's topic. This topic will be displayed to anybody executing a "/list" command, and may be your best chance to get people to investigate the channel.

    /topic #quantum This channel is about einstein

    If you need to sign off the channel, or wish to give up operator status, you can assign operator status to someone else with the "/op" command. You can make more than one person an operator if you want

    /op ivan
    /op pierre
    /op jane

    The "/mode" command lets you designate a channel that you have created to be secret or private.

    /mode #mychannel +s
    /mode #mychannel +p

    As an operator, if you need to you can kick people off your channel with the "/kick" command.

    /kick stupidperson
