These commands are not likely to be used in day-to-day operations except by delegates (people who have been given special responsibilities who are on IRC), and sometimes not even day to day by them.

These are some of the ones that sometimes don't get remembered. If you're looking for a good general guide for IRC stuff, see the one linked from IRC Help.

First steps

If you're allowed to be an op in a channel, you can op yourself.
syntax: /msg chanserv op #channel user
Freenode prefers people don't stay opped up unless they need the ops at that moment.
syntax: /msg chanserv deop #channel user

Adding people to channels, including private ones

Make sure you're allowed to invite to that channel first; this may mean opping up.
Syntax: /invite user #channel
access list
List the people who are given access to the channel, and their roles.
syntax: /msg chanserv access #channel list
access add
Add someone to the access list for the channel, including self-invite and self-op.
syntax: /msg chanserv ACCESS #channel ADD nickname [level]
The level used for antispam tends to be +Aiortv

Hushing & Removal

in case everybody needs to chill the fuck out for a while. Op up first. Voice anyone who needs to be able to talk while all this is going on.
Syntax: /mode [#channel] +m
Voice syntax: /mode [#channel] +v [username]
Syntax for turning it off: /mode [#channel] -m
Devoice syntax: /mode [#channel] -v [username]
Removing someone from a channel.
Syntax: /kick [#channel] [username] [message]
Ensuring that someone cannot rejoin the channel after being kicked. In case there are problems where talking it out won't do, or temporarily in case of an egregiously misbehaving unattended client that keeps rejoining: syntax: /mode [#channel] +b <[email protected]> (no brackets, either square or pointy)
