    Setup: !chanset +autovoice

    Setup: !chanset +inactive
    Notes: see also the commands templeave & cycle.


  • statuslog - log the channel status line every 5 minutes? This shows the bot's status on the channel (op, voice, etc.), The channel's modes, & the number of +m/+o/+v/+n/+b/+e/+I users on the channel.

The bot still remembers every invite, but the invites are only activated when the channel is set to invite only & a user joins after requesting an invite. Once set, the invite remains until the channel goes to -i.
    Setup: !chanset +dynamicinvites

  • userinvites - allow invites to be made by users directly? If turned off, the bot will require all invites to be made through the bot's console.
    Setup: !chanset +userinvites
