Epona is a set of services for IRC networks that allows users to manage their nicks and channels in a secure and efficient way, and administrators to manage their network with powerful tools.
Currently available services are:
NickServ : a powerful nickname manager that users can use to protect themselves against nick stealing. Each user has his own nickname group, that allows him to register as many nicks as he needs while still being able to take profit of his privileges and to modify his nick configuration.
ChanServ : a powerful channel manager that helps users to administer their channels in a totally customizable way. ChanServ has an internal list of privilegied users and banned users and controls accesses on a per-channel basis. It eliminates all takeover problems, because of its powerful op/unban/invite and even mass deop and mass kick functions.
MemoServ : an helpful tool that allows sending short messages to offline users, that they can then read later when they come online.
BotServ : an original service that allows users to get a permanent, friendly bot on their channels in an easy way. Each bot can be configured to monitor the channels against floods, repetitions, caps writing, swear, and take appropriate actions. It also can handle user-friendly commands (!op, !voice, !kick, etc.).
OperServ : the IRCops' and IRC admins' black box, that allows them to manage the list of network bans (also known as AKILL (DALnet) or GLINE (Unreal)), to configure messages displayed to users when they log on, to set modes and to kick users from any channel, to send notices quickly to the entire network, and much more!
