    NickServ allows you to “register” a nickname and

    prevent others from using it. The following

    commands allow for registration and maintenance of

    nicknames; to use them, type /msg NickServ command.

    For more information on a specific command, type

    /msg NickServ HELP command.

    REGISTER Register a nickname

    GROUP Join a group

    IDENTIFY Identify yourself with your password

    ACCESS Modify the list of authorized addresses

    SET Set options, including kill protection

    DROP Cancel the registration of a nickname

    RECOVER Kill another user who has taken your nick

    RELEASE Regain custody of your nick after RECOVER

    SENDPASS Forgot your password? Try this


    NOTICE: This service is intended to provide a way for

    IRC users to ensure their identity is not compromised.

    It is NOT intended to facilitate “stealing” of

    nicknames or other malicious actions. Abuse of NickServ

    will result in, at minimum, loss of the abused


    Nicknames that are not used anymore are subject to

    the automatic expiration, i.e. they will be deleted

    after 21 days if not used.

    The following commands are available to Services admins:

    GETPASS Retrieve the password for a nickname

    (only if encryption is disabled)

    FORBID Prevent a nickname from being used

    Services admins can also drop any nickname without needing

    to identify for the nick, and may view the access list for

    any nickname (/msg NickServ ACCESS LIST nick).

    Nothing rhymes with Cindy Crawford after 9 coronas...
