Summary0004159: Add timed channel bans
DescriptionUsing a command other than /mode would likely be best since +b is a RFC mode and we really shouldn't mess up mode stacking ;)
TagsNo tags attached.

This can be implemented (in a module) as an extended ban just fine, like +b ~t:5:*!*@* codemastr has done this more than 8 years ago in a paid module. Of course there are a number of challenges, mostly regarding to unsetting, but just wanted to say if you want this then extbans are the way to go :)

Sounds good. :)

I think stuff like this should really be managed by channel bots or services. I guess if someone wants to contribute a patch adding it as an extension module, then we could include it, but it seems uninteresting to me.

still fine by me, so marking as 'acknowledged'. something like ~t:min:banmask. have currently no plans to code it myself.

benefit over client-side is that even if the client/bot dies, it will be removed.

This was added in 4.0.17 but forgot to close this report.

    Timed bans: ~t:duration:mask
    These are bans that are automatically removed by the server.
    The duration is in minutes and the mask can be any ban mask.
    => Note that you need to load the extbans/timedban module!
