STICKY: Frostwire Community Chat Help

Postby KitKat-x » Fri Dec 07, 2007 4:13 pm

This is a help for things on frostwire cos i know how annoying it can be at times :) Do also check out the network rules


/me = action for you doing something

/notice name message = whisper

Chat Help

/kick #room name = kick someone

Register Yourself

Type /nickserv register apassword email@address with a password you make up, and your real email address in those places.

If you like to use more than one nickname change to that nickname now and type /nickserv group firstname apassword
Put the first nickname you registered where it says firstname. Put the same password you used before.

If you want to stop anyone else using your nickname type /nickserv set kill on now.

Everytime you join the chat it will not recognise you straight away, type /nickserv identify apassword before doing anything else.

You must identify yourself with a nickname at least once a week to keep it.

To make the room more permanent you will need to register it.

Type /chanserv register #roomname apassword description
For my example I might type /chanserv register #Playroom secretpass A friendly room. The password does not have to be the same as you used with nickserv.

You are now the owner of the room.

Type /topic #roomname Description
For example, /topic #Playroom Come play in my playroom, I have a ball pit and everything!

When you want to close your room for good the command is /chanserv drop #roomname.

Sometimes you may need to give your password to gain access to your room, the command is /chanserv identify #roomname password.

Assign A Bot To Your Room

Type /botserv botlist

At the bottom of chat is a BotServ button, click that and pick a name from the list. I will pick Tuxy.

Type /botserv assign #roomname botname

Room Services

Ask them if they have registered, if not they should type /nickserv register apassword email@address like you did earlier.

For each friend type /chanserv aop #roomname add nickname
aop means Auto Operator, the bot will automatically make them host whenever they come back.

Instead of aop you can use sop for Super Operator (an admin), hop for Half Operator (a helper) or vop for Voiced Operator (a participant).

If you change your mind use del instead of add.

There can only be one registered owner at a time but if you want a temporary owner type /mode #roomname +q nickname to add them and /mode #roomname -q nickname to remove them. They cannot use chanserv like a true owner can and they'll lose it as soon as they leave the room.

To transfer ownership to someone else use /chanserv set #roomname founder nickname and then ask them to type /chanserv set #roomname password newpassword to protect the room.
In the room type !k nickname to kick that nickname, they will be able to come back if they want to.

In the room type !kb nickname to kick and ban that nickname, they will probably not be able to come back.

In the room type !unban nickname to let them back in if you change your mind.

If you are banned from a room you have access to type /chanserv unban #roomname.

if you want your room to be for adults with no children or just want a bit of privacy type /mode #roomname +p
To make it hide adult words so it is child safe type /mode #roomname +G

yep those are all very useful. Just noticed a few were left out.

if you type /ignore nick you can ignore a user who might be bothering you rather than fighting back and forth in the chat. i find this one very useful at times =P

also if your room has been set to +i you can type /cs invite #roomname that way you can enter it without anyone else inviting you.

And if you have problems with people being oped in your room. Secureops works wonders. just type /cs set #roomname secureops on/off. Also you can turn xop off by typing /cs set #roomname xop on/off. Keep in mind tho that if you do choose to use these. You will have to use access commands to add or remove ppl.

An example would be /cs access #roomname add nick level aop.

use can of course replace aop with hop/sop/vop etc.

I just installed the newest version of Frostwire, b/c for some reason the older version refused to work. This new version works fine except for I can join any chat rooms. It's not b/c I'm doesn't say anything...what happens is that, when I connect to the network, I instantly doesn't say anything about being banned like it normally would...are the servers down? WTF, this is seriously aggravating.

USING NICK SERV TO do commands instead of through the room / commands

here is a way to be safe when typing pass info in room so ppl cant see it
this is good for new users registering a nick

1 PM NICK SERV- /MSG NICKSERV the nickserv will open
2 ENTER the register info register example pass is bunny3212

email is name@email

3 login after you message nick serv type ID pass ex -ID BUNNY3212


so here is a example of mine

/msg nickserv
once its up type : REGISTER BUNNY3212

im now registered as COOTMASTER
To login
/msg nickserv
once up type ID BUNNY3212
this i believe is a safe way to do stuff wo going through room accidentally showing info

/msg nickserv
once up : ghost cootmaster bunny3212


change nick or go on client as a different nick example bird

BIRD >> type /msg nickserv
once up : group cootmaster bunny3212

setting new pass
/msg nickserv
once up : set password newpassword
set password ducky123

registering a room

To make the room more permanent you will need to register it.

* Type /msg chanserv
register #roomname apassword description
To make the room more permanent you will need to register it.

* Type /msg chanserv
when Channel serv pops up
type as an example register #Playroom secret pass A friendly room. The password does not have to be the same as you used with nickserv, do not share that password with anyone!

Please do not PM me with questions that can equally well be posted in the forums and or #support room, and may also help others. A forum search will very often produce an answer for your question.

Yes you do it in any chat window where you normally chat. It is best to use the Global or information tabs .. since if you make a typo an entire room will not see your password :)

This Registration Tutorial by Wyrdjax< click here explains it very well :)
