InspIRCd v4 is still early in development!

If you use this branch you may experience crashes, weird behaviour, and unannounced breaking changes.

You probably want to use InspIRCd v3 instead.

The "securelist" Module (v4)


This module prevents users from using the /LIST command until a predefined period has passed.


To load this module use the following <module> tag:

<module name="securelist">


The <securehost> tag defines an exception to the /LIST waiting period. This tag can be defined as many times as required.

Name Type Default Value Description
exception Text None Required! A glob pattern to match against the hostnames of users that run the /LIST command.
Example Usage

Adds an exception for the crawler:

<securehost exception="*@*">


The <securelist> tag defines settings about how the securelist module should behave. This tag can only be defined once.

Name Type Default Value Description
exemptregistered Boolean Yes Whether registered users are exempt from waiting.
showmsg Boolean No Whether to tell the user that they need to wait before using the /LIST command.
hidesmallchans Number 0 The minimum user count for a channel to show up in /LIST after the wait period. If a user is exempt from the wait period this will not apply to them.
waittime Duration 1m The time period that must pass before a user can use the /LIST command.
fakechans Number 5 The number of fake channels to show in /LIST.
fakechanprefix Text # The prefix for the fake channels. A random suffix will be appended to this when generating channels.
fakechantopic Text Fake channel for confusing spambots The topic for the fake channels. A random format modifier will be inserted into this for randomness.
Example Usage
<securelist exemptregistered="yes"
            fakechantopic="Fake channel for confusing spambots">


This module extends the core <class:privs> field with the following values:

Name Description
servers/ignore-securelist Allows server operators to ignore the /LIST wait.
Example Usage

Allows server operators with the class named BasicOper to ignore the /LIST wait.

<class name="BasicOper"
       privs="... servers/ignore-securelist ...">
