|Basic Commands: These will help you get started on IRC
||Will change your nick to MyNick
|/NickServ REGISTER password
||The REGISTER command allows you to register a nickname with NickServ, and have NickServ protect it. The
format for the REGISTER command is:
/NickServ REGISTER password
Note the fact that the nickname does not appear anywhere on that command... NickServ will attempt to register
the nickname you are using. Also please note that the password is CaSe SeNsItIvE. That means that to
NickServ A123 and a123 are different.
Please make sure you note your nickname password, and do not give it away to anyone... DALnet personnel
will not ask for your password, unless you ask them for it first. You can tell they are actually DALnet officials by
doing a /whois on them, and looking if they are an IRCOP. If you forget your nickname password, please head
to #OperHelp and ask for a CSOP. They can help you retrieve your password.
Also note that NickServ will unregister nicknames not used for 25 days.
It is also a good idea to set KILL ON for your new nickname. That way anyone not in the access list, needs to
IDENTIFY with the nickname password.
|/NickServ SET KILL ON
/NickServ SET KILL OFF
|This setting allows you to prevent unauthorized users from using your nickname. When someone connects
using your nickname, NickServ will look through the access list looking for a matching address. If one is not
found, NickServ will ask the user for a password. If the correct password is not supplied within 60 seconds,
NickServ will change that person's nickname to a 'Guest' nickname. Literally, they will be called something such
as Guest768543, Guest55998, and so on.
To enable KILL protection you type:
/NickServ SET KILL ON
Similarly to disable it you type:
/NickServ SET KILL OFF
The KILL switch can help you make your nickname very secure. It is a smart idea to turn it on when registering
a new nick, and also enabling it for all your existing nicknames.
|/NickServ IDENTIFY [nickname] password
||If NickServ prompts you for a password, then you must reply, using this format:
/NickServ IDENTIFY [nickname] password
The nickname is optional. You should use it if you want to use the IDENTIFY for a nickname other than the one
you are currently using.
If the password is correct then NickServ will tell you that you have successfully identified to your nickname, in
which case you have full access to all commands. If not, then you have entered an incorrect password. Please
note that passwords are CaSe SeNsItIvE, thus a123 is NOT the same as A123 as far as NickServ is
If you have trouble remembering your password, you can go to #OperHelp and ask for a CSOP.
|/MemoServ SEND recipient message
||Using the SEND command, you can send a memo to another user, or to a registered channel. The format is:
/MemoServ SEND recipient message
The recipient can be a registered nickname or a registered channel. Note that in both cases, some settings
available to the nickname or channel owner might be set to prevent sending a memo.
If you send a memo to a channel, then that memo will go to ALL AOPs SOPs and the FOUNDER, if no options
are set by the channel founder. To send a memo to all channel SOPs and the channel FOUNDER use the
Please note that the message may not be longer that 255 characters. MemoServ will let you know if the memo
you are trying to send is longer that 255 characters. If so, you will need to shorten it and resend it. If you are
sending to a channel, do not forget to include th # sign that indicates it is a channel.
||You use the LIST command to view all messages in your "INBOX". Messages have a number, with which you
refer to them. All new message (The ones not read or manually deleted) will have a * by them to indicate they
Also you will see who sent the message. Then you can decide which to view, using the READ command.
The format for the LIST is:
|/MemoServ READ #number
||You use the READ command to view messages sent to you. Before using it you must know the memo nubmer.
To obtain that you must use the LIST command.
The format is:
/MemoServ READ #number
|/MemoServ SENDSOP #Channel message
||You use the SENDSOP command to send a message to all channel SOPs and the FOUNDER.
The format is the same as that of the standard SEND command, only that the recipient must be a channel. The
# sign is needed to indicate that, so please do not forget to include it.
The message text must be less than 255 characters long, else MemoServ will return an error, and you will need
to resend the message.
||Will close your connection to the channel you are in, without closing the connection to the server. You will use this command when you wish to change to another Channel.
