For example, you want to join #clan_xyz, you would type:

 /join #clan_xyz

For example, you want to invite your clanmate [xyz]sharpshooter to your clan`s channel #clan_xyz, you would type:

For example, you want to know which channels [xyz]sharpshooter is in, you would type:

 /whois [xyz]sharpshooter 

The topic is what people first see when they join your channel. Use this command to set a topic for your channel.

There are a number of channel modes you can set on your channel that affect it. The most common ones are listed below.

 /mode #clan_xyz +i
