Services

Purpose

Services: Handles management of nicks with NickServ, and ops with ChanServ; to (re)gain access to its own nick and channels.

Usage

This plugin handles dealing with Services on networks that provide them. Basically, you should use the “password” command to tell the bot a nick to identify with and what password to use to identify with that nick. You can use the password command multiple times if your bot has multiple nicks registered. Also, be sure to configure the NickServ and ChanServ configuration variables to match the NickServ and ChanServ nicks on your network. Other commands such as identify, op, etc. should not be necessary if the bot is properly configured.

Commands

ghost [<nick>]
Ghosts the bot’s given nick and takes it. If no nick is given, ghosts the bot’s configured nick and takes it.
identify takes no arguments
Identifies with NickServ using the current nick.
invite [<channel>]
Attempts to get invited by ChanServ to <channel>. <channel> is only necessary if the message isn’t sent in the channel itself, but chances are, if you need this command, you’re not sending it in the channel itself.
nicks takes no arguments
Returns the nicks that this plugin is configured to identify and ghost with.
op [<channel>]
Attempts to get opped by ChanServ in <channel>. <channel> is only necessary if the message isn’t sent in the channel itself.
password <nick> [<password>]
Sets the NickServ password for <nick> to <password>. If <password> is not given, removes <nick> from the configured nicks.
register [<network>] <password> [<email>]
Uses the experimental REGISTER command to create an account for the bot on the <network>, using the <password> and the <email> if provided. Some networks may require the email. You may need to use the ‘services verify’ command afterward to confirm your email address.
unban [<channel>]
Attempts to get unbanned by ChanServ in <channel>. <channel> is only necessary if the message isn’t sent in the channel itself, but chances are, if you need this command, you’re not sending it in the channel itself.
verify [<network>] <account> <code>
If the <network> requires a verification code, you need to call this command with the code the server gave you to finish the registration.
voice [<channel>]
Attempts to get voiced by ChanServ in <channel>. <channel> is only necessary if the message isn’t sent in the channel itself.
