cannot join channel (+b)

Postby ocp » Sat Feb 09, 2013 12:02 pm

Currently my company uses IRC chat for group chatting EFNet servers. Lately we have been having some issues with connectivity where some guys haven't been able to connect. A number of us have been getting this "cannot join channel (+b)", not sure why given that we maintain OP in the room. How do we go about fixing this? Thanks

Which channel is this? Which server are you using? Normally, the +b channel mode means a ban.

It would appear that the ban is for everybody: #brightside *!*@* set by KenBdrm!~KenBed@c-76-101-202-23.hsd1.fl.comcast.net (Thu Feb 07 00:30:26)

How would I go about removing that ban, that OP didn't know what he was doing

It appears the bans have been removed and you can now join #brightside

I suggest that all ops for that channel review: http://irchelp.org/irchelp/changuide.html

Only a channel op can set or unset a channel ban.

/mode #channelname [e.g., #brightside] -b [parameters as they are in the banlist]
