NickServ commands

Nickserv allows nickname based commands, here's a basic rundown of the most commonly used commands.

/msg nickserv register password email

Registers your current nickname so nobody else can use it.

Once registerred, you will need to identify to your nickname whenever you log on. (Explained below)

Registerring will automatically provide you with a hostmask matching tripsit/user/Username

This is shown instead of your scrambled host.

/msg nickserv identify {username} password

Allows you to sign in to your nickserv registerred account. (Explained above)

username is optional, can be used to identify to your nickname while using a different nick.

/msg nickserv ghost username password

Allows you to remotely disconnect anybody currently using your nickserv registerred nickname.

Useful when your connection drops and you don't want to wait for the ping timeout.
