Gives you op you on one or more channels, or op other users on a given channel.


/msg Q OP [<#channel> [<nick1> [<nick2> [...]]]]


  • <#channel> - The channel to be opped at or to op at.
  • <nick> - The user or users to op.

Additional info:

This command cannot be used to op users who are otherwise prevented from getting ops, e.g. via the CHANLEV denied op flag (+d) or CHANFLAGS bitch mode (+b).

If no channel is specified when using the command, you will be given ops on every channel where you have appropriate access and are not already opped.

When oping other users instead of yourself, you must specify the current nickname of a user on the named channel. Note: that this does NOT add the op CHANLEV (+o) flag to the user.


To use the OP command you must have at least the op flag (+o) in the CHANLEV list on the channel.
If this is done to op other users, a notice will be sent to other channel operators on the channel identifying you, unless you have at least the master flag (+m) in the CHANLEV list on the channel.


This will op you on all appropriate channels:

`/msg Q OP`

This will op you on channel #channel (assuming you have the appropriate flags):

`/msg Q OP #channel`

This will op users nicks John and Eve on channel #channel:

`/msg Q OP #channel John Eve`

Wrong usage:

Trying to op a user who is prevented from gaining op:

`/msg Q OP #channel John`  
`-Q- Channel settings prevent John being opped on #channel.`

Trying to op a user by his account name:

`/msg Q OP #channel #JohnAuth`  
`-Q- Can't find user #JohnAuth.`
