look at the top of the channel window , there it says your channel name "#mychannel" and next to that the number of users  and next to that the channel modes...... [+nrt] those are the channel modes there for a channel i am in.... something like that. So knowing your modes helps , now look and see if theres a #services or #help channel on the server , someone in there might be able to help. And also you can keep posting here to get help.
Edit: My wife just gave me this text. Perhaps it will help a little... and this is just an idea and NOT the only options there are.
These modes each have a unique function, while some are used more often than others.
The list of available commands at your disposal as a channel op are: +n, +t, +m, +s, +p, +i, +l, +k
+n = no outside messages - Syntax : /mode #chan +n
+t = only ops set topics - Syntax : /mode #chan +t
+m = moderated channel - Syntax : /mode #chan +m
+s = secret channel - Syntax : /mode #chan +s
+p = private channel - Syntax : /mode #chan +p
+i = channel invite-only - Syntax : /mode #chan +i
+L = Channel Limit - Syntax : /mode #chan +l <max # of users>
+k = Channel Key Required - Syntax : /mode #chan +k <key word|phrase|number>
** NOTE ** When /invite'ing a user to a +k channel you need to send them the password in a separate /message.
