This article covers the bot for the Rory Fanclub Discord Server. For the IRC service the name is based on, see ChanServ on Wikipedia

ChanServ is a Discord bot for the Rory Fanclub Discord server. Its code is open source on GitHub, and is programmed primarily by Chew.


ChanServ is the main moderation and only admin bot on the server. Its commands, much like the server, are inspired by IRC. It utilizes slash commands, which means you run commands by typing / and all of the commands will show up. The slash command behavior is not unlike IRC; however, there are suggestions, which aren't present in most IRC clients.


ChanServ's commands are primarily based on IRC, in terms of arguments, command name, and permissions.

ChanServ initially started as a bot written in Ruby using the discordrb API library and was initially private.[1] It was left private because the code contained the bot token.[2]

It was made public and was re-written in Java on September 29th, 2020.[3]
