User modes

User modes allow you to configure your session. All users have modes +Twiax set on them by default. To change a user mode, simply enter:

/umode +m

Keep in mind that User Modes are case sensitive, +i and +I are NOT the same thing. Below is a list of User Modes supported by our InspIRCd instance:
