 There are many modes that can be used on each channel on the AfterNET IRC network that can help you protect as well as control the channel you are in, whether you choose to use services or not. There are many modes that can be used on each channel on the AfterNET IRC network that can help you protect as well as control the channel you are in, whether you choose to use services or not.
  
-Modes can be set on your channel using IRC's built in /mode command. Use can depend on your IRC software, but usually ​it is something like: /mode #channel +modes-modes. If you have X3, you can make x3 enforce ​some modes on (or off) by setting them as + or - in the '​modes'​ setting. For example:​.set MODES +ntCS-ik will keep modes n, t, C and S, but not allow modes i and k (depending ​on people'​s ​access level in x3, they will be able to override these -- change it with .set enfmodes ​level) +Modes can be set on your channel using the /mode command. Use can depend on your software, but usually something like: **/mode #channel +modes -modes** will do.

-Setting ​+L stops the channels modes from showing in the /list.+By setting "+L #​differentchannelname"​ any joins to your channel will instead be redirected to #​differentchannelname. This is handy if you are changing ​the name of a channel or shutting a channel down. Users can set UMODE +L to prevent ​the redirect.

 This mode makes you invisible on the server. For example, if you do a "/​lusers"​ in the server window, it will say something like "There are 681 users and 330 invisible on 11 servers"​. All users that have +i set will show up under the "​invisible"​ users. This mode also allows you to hide from a /WHO or a /NAMES command. However, you can still be found if the user knows your nick, or is in a channel with you. This mode makes you invisible on the server.

 +It is possible to set up a channel such that joins to that channel actually redirect to a different channel.

 +Having usermode +L set will prevent that, so that you join only the original channel name you asked for.
