what do the symbols represent next to names on irc??
written by Floydian, May 19, 2007
They tell you if the person has op, half op, voice, or no privileges on IRC. The symbols you see are dependent upon which IRC client you are using. If you have something that looks like light bulbs, then a full light bulb is op, a half light bulb is half op. You should see a tooltip if you mouse over any persons nick which will tell you what privileges, if any the person has.

It may be a bit redundant to say/ask, but shouldn’t the awards symbols also be here, they are symbols after all…
