QuoteWhat is the recommended way to set up my IRC nickname? Please follow these steps to set up your nick and configure your client. Check off each step to make sure it's been done: Select a permanent, master nickname. If the nickname you want is registered but has not been used for at least 60 days, just ask a staffer and in most cases, we will be happy to drop it for you. Please avoid using the name of a community project or trademarked entity, to avoid conflicts. Write down your password and be sure to keep the sheet of paper in a safe place. Register your IRC nick:/msg nickserv register <password> <email>Do NOT include the < or > around your password or email.To keep your email address private, rather than displaying it publicly, mark it as hidden (which is done by default for new accounts):/msg nickserv set hidemail onIt's useful, but not required, to have an alternate nick grouped to your account. For example, if your primary nick is foo:/nick foo_then identify to your primary account/msg nickserv identify foo <password>and finally, group the new nick to your account/msg nickserv groupConfigure your client to identify itself to nickserv automatically whenever it connects to freenode so that it's less likely you'll connect to the network without being identified to nickserv. The easiest approach is to specify your nickserv password as a server password: If your client supports server password, please set this up as :<accountname> <password>. (Make sure to include the colon, and not the literal < and >.) This will allow you to identify to your services account on connect, regardless of the nickname you are using when you connect. For example:/connect irc.freenode.net 6667 :mquin uwhY8wgzWw22-zXs.M39p
