Operators are users who controls a channel,
a bit like policing it, to make sure people are complying to that channel's
rules (if any). Please respect #Radio1's operators in the way you want
them to respect you.
Operators have the exclusive rights to
kick or ban users from the channel, give voice,
give operator status to an user, etc.
Operators have varying levels of power:
|This user is the founder of the channel
and will always have an Operator status and he/she ranks the highest too,
thus, overriding certain commands used by operators of lower ranks below.
Furthermore, he/she can give someone OP, from Level 20 down, status too.
DJ_RobinB, Comunion and EPSiLON are Level 25.
|Anyone who ranks at this level is a good,
trustworthy friend of the Founder (and/or Co-Admin) and will have access
to certain channel settings and override any other user except when the
Founder is present. People at this rank are often long time, reliable users
and friends of the Founder/Co-Admin.
MadSci is Level 20.
|Super Operator (Level 10), have the ability
to give users AOP (Level 5) status, able to override certain commands used
by AOP (Level 5) operators in that channel. And be able to set akicks.
||Automatic Operator (Level 5). Users with
this operator status automatically gets operator every time they enter
that channel. These type of operators are the lowest ranking operators
(though still represents the channel) and therefore only able to execute
a set of limited and specific commands - eg, kicking or banning.
||Just an operator with the same powers
as an AOP (Level 5) but does not receive operator's status every time he
or she enters that channel nor can he/she access Chanserv
HOW DO I BECOME AN OPERATOR!?!??
|This is a common and very
irritating question and the simple answer is: you don't.
This is because you need to EARN your operator
status by being a trustworthy, sensible and "aimable" member of the channel
who contributes to the chatroom, and obviously this takes time and not
always you become an operator through this way. In the case of #Radio1,
the SOPs (Level 10) will decide who should be AOPed (Level 5) on a regular
basis. Don't ask us for ops status, you will be refused and reduces your
chance of an OP in the future. Recommendations to the SOPs (Level 10) for
AOps (Level 5) comes from other operators in the channel and then we will
observe that user for a short time before deciding to implement a trial
AOP (Level 5) on that user.
A trial AOP (Level 5) will help us decide
what you are like as an AOP (Level 5) and ensure you are not powermad or
threatening to start World War III. You will be given the information you
needs when you are an AOP (Level 5).
If you want it that bad, then set up your
own channel and become an operator that way. Don't advertise your or ANY
channels in #Radio1 without permission from the Co-Founders (Level 20)
(Robin, Comunion, EPSiLON, Knox and Sterri).
Finally, begging for an operator usually
results in you being kicked out of the channel and this affect your reputation
adversely in extreme cases.
