How would I set a timed quiet ban. Would it be something like:

/mode $chan +b ~q:$nick

How would I do this but with it unsetting the ban after 5 minutes?

I don't understand what you mean by a "quiet ban".
A ban prevents a person from joining a specific channel.
If you don't want to see the ban command you can prefix it with a . rather than the / which will make the command silent
eg: .ban -k #chan $nick
vs.: /ban -k #chan $nick

If that's what you mean, then you can use
Code:
 .ban -ku300 $chan $nick 
This will kick and ban the person for 5 minutes.

If this isn't what you mean, then please clarify.

That's not really what I meant.

A quiet ban prevents a specific person from talking in the channel.

Example. /mode #chan +b ~q:nick

It only works on people who aren't voice, hop, and op.

So what I'm looking for is a something that can do a quiet ban (no kick) for 5 minutes.

I hope this makes sense.

ALL bans prevent the banned person from talking or changing nicks.

/ban -u300 <nick|mask> type

IOW, /ban -u300 hisnick 3

(For types, see the help file entry for $mask

300 is 300 seconds, or 5 minutes)

Why ban them, just voice everyone, and whoever doesnt behave unvoice them but make sure to have your channel set to moderated +m

this is why the +m feature is there

//mode # +m


Code:
if $reality > $fiction { set %sanity Sane }
Else { echo -a *voices* }

yes but that would mean you have to voice everyone...

while the ban method only effects one user so it's way better to use in situations like this...


If it ain't broken, don't fix it!

. doesnt replace / its an extention to it. I wouldnt go about saying it does because people might do it in the editbox revealing private information.

On networks that use the UnrealIRCd, the +q mode is used to distinguish the channel owner/founder.

and other networks I know that mode is only available as a usermode and can only be set by IRC-opers (other characters though (+x or +z)
