Permban through X

Post by psychic »

I was thinking at an improve for X , about banning . Everyone is using eggs for permbans , but some channels which dosen`t have an egg what should they do ? i think /msg x permban <nick!*@* | *!*userid@host> [duration] [level] [reason] should do it . X should be improved to MAXIMUM so eggs in time will disapear because they won`t be needed longer .
Regards .

i forgot to say something :
this command is necesary to ban those lammo people , so people won`t have to mind when the 336 hours (max) expires to add the ban again .

well it`s not a half bad ideea although i only think that it should be at level 499 because if all users have access to permban the 350 ban limit would be enough....

What's the purpose in adding a [duration] if this should be a permanent ban? And then again, has anyone considered the potential abuse that this may generate? I would rather suggest the increase of the maximum time, to 30 days, instead of implementing such a ban. It would be a waste of resources and might be cause to abuse.

Should such a command be developed, I would suggest it left on the 500 level and none other.

I'm ok with the idea, i just would like it to be only available to the 500 in the channel, because there are douzines of channels that give 499 accesses like fresh cookies, sometimes to people they barely know. So if this command would be available to only one person, that would reduce the chances of the channel being massbanned and all that

Adding such command doesn't sound like a good idea.
People will slowly stop using the X's normal ban command and they will keep adding permanent bans, that will just fill up the database.

For permanent bans, get a bot that will either ban via the /mode command or set the bans back via X, when the offender joins.

Probably, but for those who actually *know* how to manage a channel, will use this kind of ban when it will be necesary, like flooders/abusers, etc. Even so, if people will start using this command more often than the ban command, that is their choice, we cannot fobbid anyone from banning who, and for what period of time they want

This has been looked at, and now X will allow up to 2400 hours (100 days).

At the risk of being off-topic, someone needs to fix the information a user gets when typing /msg x help ban to reflect this change.

I just got this old information ( [05:56] -X- The duration is in hours, with a maximum of 336 hours (2 weeks).)

finaly , if not permanent , 2400 hours should do it , and btw , like sirandrew sayd first , if the permban cmd was improved to X , than the max bans on the list should be modify to 350 .and such bans are not seted on everybody , just flooders/lammers like Wolfyx sayd (for Crosswing & Jasee ) .

Since when was the limit of bans through X reinstated?

Never it was always there, the question was when was the bug that stopped X respecting that limit fixed, that was early last year.
