The operators do always have voiced status though, so most of the people with +-signs on their names are operators. A few helpful people are also automatically voiced but only have minor administrative capabilities (Amariithynar,​ Belxjander, Curudan, The_Shrike),​ and sometimes the operators get silly and randomly voice people, so it's not a guarantee. Our operators do not sit around with in operator mode in normal channels, so you won't see @-signs in front of their names most of the time.
