IRC Commands

These commands can be used in any channel in which Nala is present as a primary assistant.

Nala is currently listed as a primary assistant in #site19, #site17, #area14, #projectfoundation, and #scpminecraft, however she will defer to Grape, Grapewhistle, or CROM if they are present.

Nala may be addressed in channels in which she is a secondary assistant or in deferred primary mode by prefixing your request with her name. (ex: !nala !help)

  • !tell or !memo - Sends a memo to the specified user, who will be notified the next time they join a channel or otherwise show activity. (!tell Mackenzie I have a message for you.)

  • Nala recognizes links to and, and will pull basic page information such as its title, rating, and tags.
  • Nala can recognize Youtube links in the form of and and will attempt to retrieve information for the specified video.
