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

That's pretty obvious. Well, if you can wake up the only op there, he is the only one who can remove that ban. I left him a privmsg, but he has not yet responded.

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]
