Syntax: <channel name> wholist Typing a channel name from the list below followed by 'wholist' will display all players who have the channel turned on.

Helpfile keywords: channel access
Syntax: @ access <channel name> permit|remove <player name> With this command, channel owners can give players access to their channel. Players who have been given access can use the channel even if it is read-only or password protected. If a channel is private and password protected, it can either be unlocked with the password (see helpfile 'channel unlock') or the player can be given access with this command. If your channel is password protected and you change the password, anyone who previously joined the channel will still be in the channel but will not be able to view or write in it without unlocking it with the new password. Players who have been given access will be able to continue viewing and chatting without updating their password. Channels which have a minimum level requirement can be used by players who have been given access, even if they do not meet the level requirement. This command is especially nice if you as a channel owner know there are certain players who should forever maintain their viewing/chatting privileges in the channel.
