    Syntax: /nickserv REGISTER password YourEmail

    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. (Note that case matters! EPONA, Epona, and

    epona 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 😉 and,

    in fact, NickServ will not allow it. Also, short

    passwords are vulnerable to trial-and-error searches, so

    you should choose a password at least 5 characters long.

    Finally, the space character cannot be used in passwords.

    The parameter email is optional and will set the email

    for your nick immediately. However, it may be required

    on certain networks.

    Your privacy is respected; this e-mail won’t be given to

    any third-party person.

    This command also creates a new group for your nickname,

    that will allow you to register other nicks later sharing

    the same configuration, the same set of memos and the

    same channel privileges. For more information on this

    feature, type /msg NickServ HELP GROUP.


    Nothing rhymes with Cindy Crawford after 9 coronas...
