Registering your Nickname

Nov 23, 2010 | Support

It is important to know that registration is not required to chat. This guideline is for people who find themselves using the same nickname every time, and want to make sure nobody else gets to use it.

Ok, so here’s the deal on registering your nickname, the point of it being that you want to make sure that you’re the only one that can use that nickname on the server. Also, only people with registered nicknames can become chat room operators.

Registration Steps:

  1. When in a chat room, the first tab in the list is the server tab (Atrum, ZAIRC, etc). Click on it so the messages you type to the server won’t be displayed in the chat room by accident.
  2. Type: /msg nickserv register ****** youremail  (replace ****** with password, youremail with your valid email address)
  3. An email will be sent to you with a confirmation code – follow those easy directions.
  4. IMPORTANT: EVERY time you log into that server with that nickname, you will HAVE to check the “I have a password” checkbox, and enter the password there before connecting.

Additional Notes:

  • If you’ve already connected before entering the password, type: /msg nickserv identify ****** or you will be kicked/nickname will be changed. You usually have 60 seconds to do this.
  • As an added security method, you can type: /msg nickserv set kill on, and anybody trying to use your nickname without entering the password mentioned in point 4 will have their nickname changed or will be kicked off the server.


Remember: This chat site connects to different public chat servers, with the implication that you have to register your nickname on each server you want to reserve your nickname. Each chat room’s corresponding server is listed under the server key section below the chat rooms panel.
