Usage: CHATOPS <message>
Sends a server notice to all network operators that have UMODE +b set.
/chatops Where are we meeting?
Exactly how these are used can be determined by network policies, but while GLOBOPS are generally reserved for very important communications, CHATOPS generally have looser standards. More social chatter is acceptable and less vital questions can be asked there.
Only opers see these messages, so there is less need to worry about the content of the messages. Watching chatops should be voluntary, so that busy opers can stop watching them. Anything truly vital should be sent via GLOBOPS.
