********* SECTION 2: CHAIRING A MEETING ***************

At the beginning:

!mv = Mass Voice. Give everyone in the chatroom a voice.

!mdv = Mass De Voice. Take voice away from everyone in the chatroom.

SCRIPT FOR CHAIRPERSON TO FOLLOW

 1:
       
You no longer change nick to "meetingchair," that account is obsolete.

You chair meetings as yourself with a halfop/level 4 or higher account

An owner/admin/op (level 5 or higher) has to type !halfop for the bot to reply.

If the bot is not responding, type !dehalfop and then !halfop (bug: if youve been in the channel longer than JFT_BOT)

If you are chairing as a guest/trainee, have a TS/mod/op/halfop/owner type /mode #nachatroom +h YOURNICKNAME

Shortcut: !halfop YOURNICKNAME

A server admin who is NOT an op would type: 
/msg operserv mode #nachatroom +h YOURNICKNAME

Commands to begin meeting:

 !beginmeeting
 (This will stop the hourly announcements and open the meeting with serenity prayer/welcomes)
 Chairperson: Introduce yourself by first name.
 The bot begins announcements and serenity prayer automatically.
 Chairperson: Welcome people, give hugs, and congratulate on clean time.
 DURATION: THREE MINUTES

 2:

 The bot tells you to type !readings when its done -- but don't do that unitl AFTER everyone is 
 welcomed and shares their clean time, begin readings:

 !readings

 MEETING OPERATIONS

 When someone types “!” give them the floor:
 !intro nickname

 When they are done, they can either unmute the room by typing !done
