IRCu Ideas!

Post by Yen »

I've got some ideas for IRCu to give the user more protoction, less spam,...

-Okay, I was thinking about a command that services can send to all servers in a network to stop accepting new users.
This will be verty useful when a clone attack is taking place that tries to DoS the server(s). When services notice something is going wrong with the connections, they could send a signal to the other servers in the network to stop accepting new users.

-Channelmode +N:
A channel mode like +C, but the for Channel Notices.
Channel Notices are most of the time used for spam.
(Quakenet uses this in their modified version of IRCu 'Asuka').

-No throttling anymore for trusted hosts.
This is useful for BNC/eggdrop/.. providers

-Usermode +n to stop receiving messages from not authed users.

-Usermode +h/sethost: This command is also used in Asuka to give opers costum hostmasks etc...

-Channelmode +u: No costum quit/part messages anymore.

-When a user changes the topic, ircu sets the name of the user who changed it.
Well what I like to change here is the use of the Account (AC).
When the user is not authed is uses the classic style (set by nick).
When set by an authed user, it sets set by *account_name or #account_name.

Your ideeas are quiet good... but You better ask an admin of this forum, or even a Forum moderator, to change Your threath, into another section only for ideeas, something like" "How can we improve Undernet"

I like the +u mode, it's interesting, and i would like to see that work.

Dream what you want to dream; go where you want to go; be what you want to be because you have only one life and one chance to do all the things you want in life.

sethost? guess you are dreaming or something. There is no sethost thing, at least the regular users won't be able to access it.

New things are not always good. They have to be coded, bugtested, debugged etc. Also you have to check what impact that new thing might have on the network regarding resources etc.

New things are not always good, new things shouldn't delivered just to make network more Interesting, new commands, functions should be coded when they are needed.
