When I ban someone with "ban -u" it doesn't automatically unban them.
I'm sure the reason why it's not working is because im -o (chanmode), but I am oper - +o (usermode)

It seems odd that it doesn't attempt to unban when i'm oper, regardless of current channel status, when the topic in channel central is unlocked

Regards,
JD.

This is not a mIRC bug, but related to how IRCds work.
They require the user to be at least halfop to set and remove bans.

Thanks this is due to /ban not being consistent in checking whether you are an op/oper. I have changed this behaviour for the following commands: /ban, /pop, /omsg, /onotice, /wallop. These will now check whether you are either an op or an oper.

The auto-op/voice/protect features, which trigger only if you are an op, could also be changed in the same way - however I am not sure if that would be appropriate.

Also, the @ prefix for remote events, which triggers only if you are an op, could also be made to trigger if you are an oper - however, again, I am not sure if that would be appropriate.

Ps. The website was experiencing some issues yesterday - it looks like it is back to normal :-)

I'm not sure either. I would probably say it wouldn't be.

Agreed - I definitely think this one wouldn't be (the @ prefix I would expect to have an @ specifically)[/quote]

Hi enticore,

I was specifically referring to a mIRC feature - Many servers will let an IRCoper unban a user even when they are not at least halfop in the channel

Pertaining to whether @ should trigger for op AND oper. With the $nick identifier I can specify custom usermodes. A server I script for uses ', so to check for them I use $nick(#,$nick,').

It could be a solution to allow the prefixes to not be so fixed so that you can only use . or @ but instead be able to include non-formal usermodes. It sounds like it could cause issues or be too much of a pain to implement. But just in case I wanted to offer this idea.

Thank you.

Maybe a option if you are a oper to turn it on/off? default should be off.
