Greetings to all you translators out there, The banguide document has finally somethings to be added :) 1) After Section 4 "Removal and Modification Of Ban Lists ", add a new section named Section 5 with the following:
Simplyfying bans

Sometimes, you want to keep out specific nicknames that are used by spambots that come in with a standard name with numbers at the end of their nick. You want to set a nick ban than having to add 100 bans to your banlist. Let's take a look at the following example:

5 users from different IPs/hosts come in to #fleetstreet with the nicks Andrea521, Andrea522, Andrea523, Andrea524 and Andrea525. Instead of adding 5 bans on their hosts, you can simplify the ban by adding a nick ban by using wildcards as discussed previously. So you will type the following command:

/mode #fleetstreet +b Andrea???!*@*

which will keep all of them out. The problem is, if they use less or more than 3 characters after that nick, this will render the ban ineffective. Therefore, you will need to set a wider ban to keep them out completely. So the following ban mask will be set:

/mode #fleetstreet +b Andrea*!*@*

which will keep anyone with the nick Andrea regardless of any number of characters behind it out of the channel. However, if you have a friend who may be affected by the ban eg. Andrea_Simon, you will then need to place an exception mask. You may refer to to know more on how to place an exception.

2) 2) Another new section to add just before the Try to use the search funtion with " main " to find the right place where to add the text.
Exception Mode (+e)

The +e or exception mode has been introduced when Bahamut 1.8.* was released. The function of this mode is to allow someone who is affected by a ban which was not intended for him/her to join the channel. For example, if I place a ban on the mask *!*@219.94.* on #fleetstreet but I'd like to allow your friend Ting into the channel, you'd place an exception mode by typing:

/mode #channelname +e Ting!*@219.94.*

which will allow Ting to join the channel. The exception mode is also useful especially when you want to ban a specific host/domain/ISP but wish to allow specific people to join. For more information on the exception mode, you can read the modes document at this link

Translate the document in your own language and set the filename as banguidexx-1.2.3.xml where xx represents your domain. Version number will be 1.2.3 after parsing. Regards, PJKevin
