Description Registers your nickname in the NickServ database. Once your nick is registered, you can use the SET and ACCESS commands to configure your nick's settings as you like them. Make sure you remember the password you use when registering - you'll need it to make changes to your nick later. (You can reset it with the RESETPASS command) (Note that case matters! IRC4FUN, IRC4Fun, and irc4fun are all different passwords!) Guidelines on choosing passwords: Passwords should not be easily guessable. For example, using your real name as a password is a bad idea. Using your nickname as a password is a much worse idea ;) (In fact, NickServ will not allow it anymore.) Also, short passwords are vulnerable to trial-and-error searches, so you should choose a password at least…
Description Without a parameter, reverses the effect of the IDENTIFY command, i.e. make you not recognized as the real owner of the nick anymore. Note, however, that you won't be asked to reidentify yourself. With a parameter, does the same for the given nick. If you specify REVALIDATE as well, Services will ask the given nick to re-identify. (The REVALIDATE parameter is limited to Services Operators) Commands /NS logout [nickname] /NS logout [nickname [REVALIDATE]] Examples /msg NickServ logout
Description Displays information about the given nickname, such as the nick's owner, last seen address and time, and nick options. If no nick is given, and you are identified, your account name is used, else your current nickname is used. Commands /NS info [nickname] Examples /msg NickServ info Fred
Description Tells NickServ that you are really the owner of this nick. Many commands require you to authenticate yourself with this command before you use them. (The password should be the same one you sent with the REGISTER command.) Commands /NS IDENTIFY [nickname] password /NS IDENTIFY password Examples /msg NickServ IDENTIFY MyNickname MySecr3tpassword /msg NickServ IDENTIFY MySecr3tpassword Also consider CertFP or SASL Authentication Most modern IRC clients can automatically identify you to Services, utilizing CertFP (with an SSL Fingerprint) or SASL Authentication at connection.
Description This command makes your nickname join the target nickname's group. Password is the password of the target nickname. Joining a group will allow you to share your configuration, memos, and channel privileges with all the nicknames in the group, and much more! A group exists as long as it is useful. This means that even if a nick of the group is dropped, you won't lose the shared things described above, as long as there is at least one nick remaining in the group. It is recommended to use this command with a non-registered nick because it will be registered automatically when using this command. You may use it with a registered nick (to change your group) only if your network administrators allowed it. You can only be in…
Description Recovers your nick from another user or from services. If services are currently holding your nick, the hold will be released. If another user is holding your nick and is identified they will be killed (similar to the old GHOST command). If they are not identified they will be forced off of the nick. *Your password is only required if you are not identified to your account. NOTE: GHOST and RELEASE are enabled but, RECOVER is recommended over the old GHOST and RELEASE commands. Commands /NS recover nickname [password] Examples /msg NickServ recover Fred MyPassword
