About the IRC4Fun Channel Service (X)

What is CService?
CService (short for Channel Service) is the committee responsible for the registration of channels and for handling issues/problems with those channels.


What is X? What does it do?
X is the Channel Service bot assigned to each registered channel. For each channel, X maintains a userlist, which specifies who has what access and who should be opped, and a banlist, which specifies who to ban from joining the channel (or from getting ops), and for how long. X is designed to keep a channel open 24 hours a day, and prevent channel takeovers.


How does it differ from any other bot?
X is actually a server, not just a bot. It is allowed to work this way because it is run by the IRC4Fun administration. This allows X to do several special functions, such as opping itself. Also, X is on a large number of channels. By having one bot for many channels, this reduces the load on the IRC4Fun network that would be caused by having one separate bot on each channel.


How do I use X?
You can use X by sending it private messages or by using the secure-alias command.
To send X a fast, secure private message with a command: /cs COMMAND
To send X a normal private message with a command: /msg X COMMAND
To send X a secure private message (when logging in or changing your password) with a command: /msg X@services.IRC4Fun.net COMMAND
X does not listen for commands in channels (such as !op), so you must use the secure alias or private message commands to X.
