set::channel-command-prefix <command-prefixes>;
Specifies the prefix characters for services "in channel commands". Messages starting with any of the specified characters will still be sent even if the client is +d. The default value is "`".

Perhaps this should be added somewhere else in the docs as well. Section 6 seems an appropriate place.

In case you wonder why it exists.. it's for bots, so they can be set +d (=save bandwidth) while still supporting triggers. I got ::channel-command-prefix set to "!." on my network (which, to be honest, seems a more reasonable default than this).

EDIT: Updated title, plus I suggest to change the default to "`.!".

Oops ... I have never heard of it.. Great :)
"it's not a bug, it's a feature" coming to Unreal, huh.

I thought only opers can use the prefix for that... Guess not.

Naturally it can be used for both.

Now of course, it is NOT oper only, I already described the purpose.. if it would be oper only it would make no sense...

Documentation has been updated, and default has been changed to "`!.".
