IRC Services Commands Manual

IRC Services Commands Manual (Anope Services)

  • HELP
    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.
    Syntax: /msg NickServ REGISTER password [email]
    Syntax: REGISTER password [email]

    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! ANOPE, Anope, and
    anope 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
