New Q features
Several new features have been added to Q in recent days:
- The REQUESTOWNER command.
- The RECOVER command.
- Statistics at the end of the CHANLEV command.
The REQUESTOWNER command allows you to request ownership of a channel on which there are no owners. If there are channel masters present you must also be a master, otherwise you need only operator privileges on the channel. To request ownership, type: /msg Q REQUESTOWNER #channel.
The RECOVER command is similar to L's RECOVER command, in that it is used to reclaim your channel in the event of a takeover. Not only does it perform a DEOPALL, UNBANALL and CLEARCHAN, it also removes any permanent bans or +b CHANLEVs that may prevent you from entering. To recover your channel, simply type: /msg Q RECOVER #channel.
Finally, the CHANLEV command now gives a summary of the number of owners, masters, operator and so on, that have flags on a channel. For example: -Q- Total: 4 (owner: 1, master: 0, op: 3, voice: 0, ban: 0).
