This page refers to information about Anope Services, and may not be true for every server. Specifically, this information is for irc.mibbit.net and may not be true on other servers.

An entry message is a message that is noticed by Chanserv or Bot when the user joins the room. For an example, if the entry message is "Welcome to #treeFrogs", they will see

<chanserv> Welcome to #treeFrogs

If you have a Services Bot assigned to your channel, then the message will be from the Services Bot

<Bot> Welcome to #treeFrogs

Setting/Removing an Entry Message

Entry Messages for a channel can be set with the command

/cs set #yourChannel entrymsg [Entry message] .

If you want to remove an entry message already added, leave out the last parameter.

When an entry message is successfully changed, chanserv will tell you one of the following statements:

  • Entry message for #yourChannel changed.
  • Entry message for #yourChannel unset.

Chanserv Helpfile

Chanserv's help message on this topic, accessible by /cs help set entrymsg states:

Syntax: SET channel ENTRYMSG [message]

Sets the message which will be sent via /notice to users when they enter the channel.
If no parameter is given, causes no message to be sent upon entering the channel.
