You will then be sent a confirmation code from email@example.com to the email you entered. It will contain a confirmation code. To complete registration, type
" in the same window you sent the registration command in.
At this point, your nickname is registered. Once registered, only you would be able to use the nick. Those whom attempt to impersonate others would have their nicks forcibly changed to Guest.
If you decide you wish to change your nickname, type "/nick
". At this point, you can link your two nicknames together with
". Grouping nicknames means they use the same password, and have all of the same settings and permissions.
A few of the more useful NickServ commands:
- The standard way to login to your nickname. Can also be done with the server alias /identify.
- Provides information about a specific nickname. Typically a good way to check if a nickname is registered.
* /ns info
<- Look for the line that starts with "Nicks :" to find the nicknames within your group
/ns help set - There are many settings and options that you can change with your nickname. For more specific information on a particular option use /ns help set [option].
/ns help set kill - Provides information about the 'kill' option, which will forcibly change an unidentified user attempting to utilize your nickname's nickname to a standardized one.
- Sometimes you may disconnect from the network and reconnect before the server realizes you are gone. These connections are known as ghosts, and this command will forcefully disconnect them.
MemoServ (/ms help) - MemoServ can be used to leave messages to offline users.
HostServ (/hostserv help) - HostServ is used to request and turn on 'vanity hosts' to mask your already automatically masked host with something a bit more special.
