Services howto/FAQ a guide to A and C.
Welcome to our guide to services on P10Link.net.
Lets begin with the obvious, what a service is. Services on IRC are special robot users that provide services to users of a network, hence the name. The services we run for public use, are A and C with possibly more to follow. A is the auth service, and is used to gain authorisation to use the other channels, that is it controls who can use C and how, anyone can gain authorisation to use the basic services of C automatically, more on that in a momment. C is the lightweight channel service it is a simple easy to use, leightweight and fast channel service. Channel services are offered to channel owners, they provide basic services like keeping ops in the channel (preventing your channel from bieng stolen) and oping or voicing people you set them to, in order to use C you must first have logged into A, the rest of this tutorial will center on how to create and maintain an account with A, and a list of FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions, and their answers) about C.
Creating an account with A:
To create an account with A you must first have an e-mail address, and have chosen a username for authing, this username can be anything and need not bear and resemblance to your nickname on IRC, you then say hello to a, telling it these things about you and it creates an account.
For example, /msg A hello bob bob@ISP.com bob@ISP.com will create a newuser called Bob with A, and e-mail the password you will then have to use to login to A in future to the provided e-mail address, note that this e-mail address must be provided typed twice as in the example, and be a valid email address.
Once you have recieved the e-mail you will have the password to let you login to your new account with A, an example of how to do this is /msg A login bob thisisapassword that is it your all done!
However before continuing lets look at changing the password you recieved to something more meaningful to you personally, for example Bob's password was thisisapassword and hed like to change it to mypassword so he types, /msg A newpass thisisapassword mypassword mypassword note that the new password has to be typed twice, oh one last thing should you loose or forget your password you can have a new one mailed to you by doing, /msg A requestpassword youremailaddy for example /msg A requestpassword bob@ISP.com now on to the A FAQ.
