L Request problems

Posted by cro on Thursday 09 May 2002

We have seen a rise in the number of people complaining that they are channel owners and did not request L for a particular channel. Here are the requirements for L:

  • You are opped in the channel
  • There are at least three other ops in the channel
  • You are listed as one of the top-5 ops in the channel by Chanfix

Now, a Top-5 op means that you are one of the people that has been an op in the channel for the longest time. This is worked out on your nickname and hostmask combination, or your Q Auth. You get one point for every 5 minutes you are an op in a channel, and this is accumulated over time.

If you are NOT one of the top-5 opers as recorded automatically by Chanfix, then you cannot request L in a channel even if you are opped.

It needs to be noted that chanfix does not care about clan or channel politics, it only records who has ops in the channel, and the person who is opped the longest has the greatest control over the channel, and is considered the channel owner.

You cannot be moved up the chanfix list by an oper.

So, the ONLY way L can be requested for a particular channel is by someone who (a) is one of the five most common ops in the channel, (b) has three other people also opped in the channel and (c) is opped at the time of the request.

For new channels, you must have been opped for a minimum of two hours.

If you receive any message about not being in the top-5 ops in a channel, or not having a high enough score, coming into #feds will not get you L.

ive had 10 idlers for 4 hours and my score is always too low. i went to #help and got treated like i was retarded for wanting some \'help\' with this. apparently im not the only one that isnt having this problem. should change the name from #help to #snob-assholes imo

PaleHorse said on Friday 29 April 2005

Try again later. You do not meet the requirements to request L. You may need to wait longer (see http://www.quakenet.org/faq/faq.php?c=3&f;=112 ) pfffff

dsteah-brdd said on Friday 01 July 2005
