hello!
I'd like to set up a chat with a special guest, where all the messages from users are moderated.
So when a participant submits a message, it will only be displayed if the moderator approved it.
is it possible to do this within mIRC? Or does it exist a script for that?
Thanks.

Most networks have a channel mode "m" which is moderated. If you set this then only voices and higher can speak. You could set this and have a queue system. Have the users private message their question if allowed you could voice them for a small period of time so they could ask it and what not then devoice them

Thanks, that's a great idea!
I'll probably use that method. But if I want, is it possible to block users to send private messages to a specific person?
Thanks.

You can't block anyones private messages apart from your own, having moderator gives you 'power' over the channel and has nothing to do with private messages.

I've thought of an impeccable work around though all you got to do, is tell them to disable their private messages. On most IRCDs this command would be: /umode +m good luck.

I've tried to disable my private messages, but UMODE doesn't work (Unknown command).
Maybe I'm missing something.. What's IRCD? confused

try /mode $me +m

~ Edit ~
Some IRCDs have user mode X, which only allows
registered and identified clients to message you.

try /mode $me +X

Few things to note:

a) If you want $me to work, you will need to use //mode (with both //)
b) +m may not even exist on the network you use, or if it does, the function may not be associated with that letter but a different one. Personally I've never heard of it.
c) "IRCd" is the server software, it stands for Internet Relay Chat daemon.
d) All networks have channel mode +m.

It is hard to say what a mode is on a network as different ircd developers associate different letters with different functions. The +X behaviour described above is in fact +R on DALnet, yet +r on Undernet is a channel mode for blocking unregistered users (they are case sensitive).

You should be able to obtain further information about network-specific modes in the network's #Help channel, or equivalent.

I might be dumb or something, but I tried this, and it gives this: "$me No such channel".
What am I doing wrong?
Thanks a lot for helping me.

thank you Mentality!

you're right, I tried "//mode $me +m" and it's an "Unknown MODE flag".

You are sadly mistaken on d. I've seen some networks only have +nt (no external message/op's only change topic.)

That is very rare, and only happens when an admin decides to deliberately not comply with RFC1459, in which case I don't even consider it a proper IRC server.
