      For those that don’t know, IRC stands for ‘Internet Relay Chat’. Most of the information on this page will deal primarily with IRC commands and tricks to manipulate their use.

      IRC commands

      IRC commands allow you to perform functions such as maintaining control of a channel and the users on it. The following list of basic IRC commands should help you get started. There are also mIRC commands you can look at.

      While in a chat room, type the following in the normal message writing area.


      Example: /me dances around the room
      Result: you say something about yourself in a third persons point of view
      BUGOY dances around the room


      Example: /msg BUGOY where are you from?
      result: private message someone

      BUGOY(to you) where are you from?
      If you are in TalkCity this will allow you to private message someone no matter what room they are in.


      Example: /topic Meeting New Friends
      result: creates a new topic for a room

      BUGOY has changed the topic for the room
      Meeting New Friends
      Need ops for the room to do this.


      Example: /who
      result: tells you who is in the room
      people in this room: BUGOY, TipTup, ulTRAX, Derek70, WebBabe, LadyTCC, Greeneyes27


      Example: there are lots of ways to use the /whois command

      /whois BUGOY

      result: gives you info on a persons nick
      BUGOY is EZGuest36

      /whois *poet

      result: this will tell you all the people in TalkCity who has poet at the end of there nick
      – WebPoet
      – darkpoet
      – imapoet
      and so on….

      /whois *BUGOY*

      result: this will tell you all the people in TalkCity who have any variation of that nick
      – BUGOY1
      – ^BUGOY5
      – P0etHorn
      and so on….

      /whois *Ma.

      Result: this will tell you all the people in TalkCity who are from Massachusatts
      – BUGOY
      – BostonGirl
      – bedpan9
      and so on….

      /whois *boston.

      Result: this will tell you all the people in TalkCity who are from Boston
      – BostonGirl
      – bedpan9
      and so on….

      Make sure to put a period with the last two examples or it will say that it is unknown. Also … with some browsers you may need to add another asterix at the end.
      The asterix key has been a great help to me, not only can youi tell if people are in your general area, using them acts as an undefined character locater.



      /ignore BUGOY
      result: this will not allow someone to private message you or even show up on your screen during normal chat

      /ignore -BUGOY
      result: this will unignore people you have ignored



      /join #New2WebTV
      Result: this will allow you to join a specified channel (room)



      /part #Buangons
      Result: this will make you leave a specified channel (room)


      Example: mIRC command

      Result: lists currently available channels (rooms)
      You can also tell mIRC to list only channels with a minimum and a maximum number of people.


      /list -min 2 -max 50
      Result: lists only the channels available with the amount of people in them between the minimum and maximum count you specify.
      If you specify a #roomname then mIRC will only list information for that channel.


      /list #New2WebTV
      Result: gives you information on the specified channel … eg: topic, room count … ect.
      If you specify wildcards then mIRC will list all channels containing your wildcard.


      /list *music*
      Result: this gives you a list of all channel names with the word music in them



      /query BUGOY Hi bro ... whats up?
      Result: opens a query window to someone and send them a private message, equivalent to WebTV’s wisper box



      /nick BUGOY
      Result: changes your nickname to a new nickname, need room ops to do this



      /quit needs to use the phone
      Result: this will disconnect you from IRC and will give an optional message as the reason for your departure

      BUGOY needs to use the phone
      WebTV uses this as a defalt to just ‘BUGOY has left the room’.



      /away off to the bathroom
      Result: leaves a message explaining that you are not currently paying attention to IRC, whenever someone private messages you or does a /whois on you they automatically see whatever message you set. Using /away with no message turns it off



      /invite BUGOY #Buangons
      Result: invites another user to a restricted room, need room ops to do this



      /kick #Buangons BUGOY
      Result: kicks specified user off a given channel, need room ops to do this

      Example: this is a powerful command that gives channel operaters control of a channel and the users on it, here are a few examples

      /mode #Buangons +o BUGOY
      Result: gives someone ops status in a specified room, to give ops to multiple people add the number of o’s for the number of people your giving ops to, then space the nics after.

      Example: /mode #Buangons +ooo BUGOY Buangons asL_pLs
      To de-op someone put a – symbol before the o’s instead of the + symbol

      /mode #Buangons +b BUGOY (or user address ... eg: BUGOY@webtv.net)
      Result: this bans someone from a specified room, unbaning is the same as above but use the – symbol instead of the + symbol before the b

      /mode #Buangons +i
      Result: makes a channel invite only, you now must use the /invite to let others join your channel.
      You should get the idea of how these work now. Here is the list of ModeChar effects.

      ModeChar Effects on channels:

      b <nickname> ban somebody, <nickname> in nick!user@host.com form
      i channel is invite only
      l <number> channel is limited, <number> users allowed max
      m channel is moderated, only ops can talk
      n external /msg’s to channel are not allowed
      o <nickname> makes <nickname> a channel operater
      p channel is private
      s channel is secret
      t topic is limited, only ops can change topic
      k <key> set secret key for a channel

      ModeChar Effects on nicknames:

      i makes you invisible to anyone that does not know the exact spelling of your nickname
      o IRC-ops status, can only be set by IRC-ops with OPER
      s receive server notices
      v gives a user a voice on a moderated channel

      There are many more IRC commands but this list should help you get started.
