  1. h1. Aquarion's Useful and Edutaining guide to Nickname Registration in the
  2. Interdependent Republic Of #Maelfroth
  3. Good news everyone!
  4. -I've taught the bot to love- People are being kicked from the channel
  5. because the usernames they want to come into our wonderous enterprise using
  6. have been registered by nasty people from a different universe. These nasty
  7. people are bad, and smell.
  8. Maelfroth lives on a land called Esper.net, which is run by anime fans and
  9. other such flotsom on society. One of the services the IRC server runs is
  10. called "Nickserv", and it allows people to register nicknames with the
  11. server, which allows you do things like recieve memos, run channels and
  12. such (Registration is a prerequisite for being auto-op'd like ((~Salbot)),
  13. ((~Aquarion)), ((~Scar)), ((~Delvy)) and ((~Lampstand)) are, for
  14. example.)
  15. h2. Registering with Nickserv will stop people nicking your name
  16. Basically, if you register your nickname, and someone else comes on and
  17. takes it, you can force them to vacate it.
  18. h2. So how do I register my nickname, oh wise narrative force?
  19. Log into IRC, come into Maelfroth, say hello, get
  20. hugged/molested/ceilingdropped etc, then type this:
  21. - <tt>/msg nickserv register *password* *your-email*</tt>
  22. + <tt>/quote nickserv register *password* *your-email*</tt>
  23. replacing the bold bits with better ideas. The server will send you an
  24. email (it might go into your spam folder) with an authorisation code, and
  25. you follow the instructions in that to activate the registration.
  26. -Whenever you log into IRC, type <tt>/msg nickserv identify *password*</tt>
  27. -
  28. +Whenever you log into IRC, type <tt>/quote nickserv identify
  29. +*password*</tt>
  30. h2. Some Carazee Motherflocker is using my nickname! And I registered it!
  31. What can I do, signwriter?
  32. You have a recourse, a rebuff, and a reaction. You can recover it! Realise
  33. your dreams! Reckon on maintaining your online identity!
  34. h3. Stop with the re-wording and give me the command, coder-boy.
  35. -Fine. <tt>/msg nickserv ghost *registered-username* *your-password*</tt>
  36. +Fine. <tt>/quote nickserv ghost *registered-username* *your-password*</tt>
  37. Happy now?
  38. h2. Some punting retainer-fister is using my nickname! And they registered
  39. it! What can I do, Kemosabe?
  40. Well, not a fuck of a lot, Ranger. Ride off into the sunset, chastised and
  41. swearing on your life you'll register the next one. If the assmatting
  42. rabbit-fucker who registered your name doesn't identify as it (see above)
  43. for a month or so, it'll expire and you can pounce on it.
  44. Until then, you'll have to use a variation. Sorry about that.
  45. h2. Hang on, oh sensational sensei, I tend to come on channel with a range
  46. of highly entertaining noms the plum! How do I reconcile this with your
  47. fasist dictatorship of "registration"?
  48. Well, padawan, you have two central options. You can either pick a name and
  49. stick with it, that people can tell who you are at a glance, or you could
  50. pick one name and then get Nickserv's alias system (known as "linking") to
  51. link them together, so when someone sends you a memo (to be covered in a
  52. later entertaining and enlightening FAQ) you'll still get it.
  53. Go into IRC as your registered nickname and type @/msg nickserv help link@
  54. for instructions on how this works.
  55. h2. Where can I find more information about this wacky karazee Nickserv
  56. thing, sensei?
  57. -Log into IRC and type @/msg NickServ Help@
  58. +Log into IRC and type @/quote NickServ Help@
  59. h2. This has been awesome! You have saved our lives! We are eternally
  60. grateful! How can we reward you, wondrous writer of FAQs?
  61. No, I couldn't accept anything.
  62. Well. Beer or mead.
  63. But nothing else.
