3.0 Services Commands
- 3.1.1 Q: How do I register my nickname?
A: You can register your nickname by typing "/msg nickserv register YOUR-PASSWORD YOUR-EMAIL". Please be sure to use a secure password and a VALID email address. Please do NOT use an AOL email address as you will not recieve our registration email. Our recommended is GMail which always recieve our emails. Once this is done, go check your emails for further instructions! NOTE: If you already have a registered nickname, please refer to the Group Command.
- 3.1.2 Q: How do I group my nicknames together?
A: You can group your nicknames together using the command "/Msg nickserv group YOUR-MAIN-NICKNAME YOUR-PASSWORD". Replace YOUR-MAIN-NICKNAME with your Registered nickname and then your password. Grouping your nicknames together saves you from registering again. You can have up to 8 nicknames in your group.
- 3.1.3 Q: My nickname is Registered. How do I Identify to it so that My nickname isn't Changed?
A: Login to your nickname by typing "/msg nickserv identify YOUR-PASSWORD". Please note that you do not need to re-identify every time you change to another nickname in your Group. NickServ will send you a notice if you have to identify.
- 3.1.4 Q: How do I drop a nickname I don't use anymore?
A: You can drop (Unregister) a nickname by typing "/msg nickserv drop NICKNAME". Please note: NICKNAME is only required if you are not already on the nickname to be dropped. If you are on the nickname you are dropping you can simply type "[/b]/msg nickserv drop[/b]". This also allows other people to then register the nickname you have dropped.
- 3.1.5 Q: My registered Nickname is in Use but I am not on it. What can I do?
A: If your nickname is in Use and it is NOT you, this can be for 2 reasons:
1. Someone else has "stolen" your nickname and Knows your Password.
2. Your connection has dropped and the server hasn't realised it and so the "Ghost" is still online.
In these cases simply use the command "/msg nickserv ghost NICKNAME PASSWORD" and this will kill the name. You may then type "/nick NICKNAME" and then Identify as mentioned above. If your nickname was stolen please be sure to change your password using This Command
- 3.1.6 Q: How can I change my password?
A: First, make sure you are logged into your nickname with IDENTIFY. Then you may use the command "/msg nickserv set password NEWPASSWORD". This will change the password for your whole group so be sure to remember it.
- 3.1.7 Q: I was changed to a Guest nick and can't get back on my nick. What do I do?
A: When nickserv changes a user to a Guest nick (due to the identify command not being used fast enough), It places a hold on the nickname for around 15 seconds to prevent someone using that nickname straight away. You can release it early by typing "/msg nickserv release NICKNAME PASSWORD". This will allow you to change to that nickname.
- 3.1.8 Q: How do I see all the nicknames in my group?
A: You can see all the nicknames in your registered group by typing "/msg nickserv glist".

- 3.2.7 Q: How can I get status via chanserv?
A: You can gain status by typing "/msg chanserv STATUS CHANNEL". You must have the relevant status in the access list (or higher to do so). Replace STATUS with VOICE, HALFOP, OP, PROTECT or OWNER. You can remove your status via chanserv by putting DE in front of the status (Example: DEVOICE)
