IRC Services Help Guide - NickServ MemoServ - ChanServ
Also: NICKSERV | NS
NickServ allows users to register their nicknames for use while online. Users may reserve their favorite online name for their personal use with options to ensure that nobody else can use it. After registration, users can PROTECT their nickname from use by others so that services will automatically change their nickname, or you can manually change someones nickname by using the RECOVER command.
If a user does not use a registered nick for the number of days set in the services nickname configuration, the registered nickname expires and becomes available for registration by other users.

/msg nickserv help (command)
/nickserv help (command)
/ns help (command)
Usage: ACC (nick)
This command checks if users own the nicknames they are currently using.
After using the acc command, services will reply with the user's access level.
The possible values are:
2 User has identified and owns the nick.
1 User matches the nick's access masks.
0 User does not own the nick or is not online
/msg nickserv acc JoelKatz
Use the acc command to verify that someone is the rightful owner of a nick in use. Access level one does not mean that they do not own the nick, but it doesn't give you enough information to conclude that they do either. If you normally get opped or voiced in a room and services are not doing so, you should check your acc. Identifying will usually fix the problem.
Usage: ACCESS [ADD|DEL|LIST|WIPE] [(mask)]
This command is used to add, delete and list access masks. If a user matches an entry in the access list, he/she won't need to identify to use the nick. The person will have acc level 1. If protect is set on, you will still be able to use the nick without identifying, provided you match a mask in the access list.
ADD - Add a mask to a user's access list
DEL - Remove a mask from a user's access list
LIST - List the user's access list entries
WIPE - Clear the access list of all entries
/msg nickserv access del philw@*.drmweaver.com
/msg nickserv access add philw@*webchat.org
/msg nickserv access wipe Phillip
/msg nickserv access list
If you have a static ip address, you should definitely add an access list entry for it. If your address varies, you need to consider what level of security and convenience you want. But you can always add or remove masks if you change your mind.
Usage: AUTH (command) [(parameters)]
This command is used for adding a nickname, or channel privilege to your buddy/watch list.
ACCEPT - Approve the authorization request and memo the person confirmation.
APPROVE - Same as accept.
DECLINE - Decline the authorization request and memo the person that you will not be added to that buddy list.
LIST - List buddy requests.
READ - Read the AUTH request Message.
REJECT - Decline the authorization request without memoing.
VIEW - Same as read
/msg nickserv help auth (topic)
If you are on someone's buddy list then they will know when you are on the chat network. If you are informed that you have a buddy request waiting for you, use the list command to see what its number is. Then read it by using the read command with its number. If you wish to allow the person who sent it to add you to their buddy list then use approve or accept with the auth number.
If you do not want to be added to that person's buddy list, use decline or reject.
Other related commands:
/msg nickserv help buddy
/msg nickserv help set authorize
Usage: BUDDY [ADD|DEL|LIST|WIPE] [(nick)]
This command will have NickServ manage your BUDDY list. A Buddy list is the same as a watch list and similar to a notify list. A Buddy list informs you when each of your buddies joins or leaves the chat network.
ADD - Add a Buddy to a user's Buddy list.
DEL - Delete a Buddy from a user's Buddy list.
LIST - List the user's Buddy list.
WIPE - Remove all entries from the buddy list.
/msg nickserv buddy add Mark
/msg nickserv buddy del Mark
/msg nickserv buddy list
You can add the nicks of people whom you frequently chat with as buddies. But you might not want to make your buddy list too long, or you may be seeing too many messages about people logging on and off. Add people to your buddy list if you will frequently want to chat with them when they are online and might not otherwise realize they were around.
Other related commands:
/msg nickserv help auth
/msg nickserv help set authorize
Usage: DROP (nick)
This is the opposite of register, it releases a nick you own. When you drop a nick you also lose any rooms for which it was listed as the founder. You must identify with the nick's password before you drop it.
/msg nickserv drop phil
If you have gotten tired of a nick and no longer want it, then drop it. A nick is like an identity in the chat network, it receives memos, gets opped in rooms, and can own rooms. Dropping the nick removes all of that for that nick. Make sure you want to give up your nick before you drop it. Once dropped, anyone can register it.
Usage: GHOST (nick) [(password)]
If you have become disconnected, but your client is still online, you can use the ghost command to disconnect the client. You must either have identified for the nick with the client sending the ghost command or you must include the password in the command.
/msg nickserv ghost webmaster webpass
When a computer disconnects abruptly, for example by crashing, sometimes it does not log off of the chat network. The server will eventually realize that the client is dead, but you may log back on and still see a "ghost" of yourself. This command is designed to allow you to remove these ghosts. You can only ghost a nick if you have registered it.
If you have an unregistered ghost, just wait for it to disconnect itself. If it is causing problems, you can ask a network operator to "kill" it.
Usage: HELP [(command)]
This command will provide online help for NickServ. You may use it without any parameters to get a list of topics you can get help on. If you wish to receive help on a specific command use the command name in the help syntax.
/msg nickserv help
/msg nickserv help set
/msg nickserv help set protect
This is the easiest way to look up what a command does or exactly how to use it. You will probably find yourself referencing the help files often if you want to do anything at all complicated on a chat network or spend a lot of time helping or teaching others.
Usage: IDENTIFY [(nick)] (password)
To gain full access to a registered nick, use the identify command. After identifying to a nick, the settings of a registered nick can be changed. You do not have to be using the nick to identify for it.
/msg nickserv identify yourpass
/msg nickserv identify yournick yourpass
In general, it is best if you always identify for your nick when you use it. However, if your access list is set to match you, you will not need to. But many rooms will have ident set on to require that you identify before getting status in those rooms.
It can often be useful to identify for a nick you intend to use before you switch nicks. Services will remember you as identified for multiple nicks, even ones you have identified for but not used.
Usage: INFO (nick)
Used to view all available information on a registered nick. This will show whether it is registered, when it was registered, to whom, when it was last used, and various options that are set for the nick. Opers may be able to see more information than regular users.
/msg nickserv info benny
This is a good command to use to check if a nick that interests you is registered or to see when a friend's nick was last used. You should info your own nick so you can see what others will find out if they do so.
Usage: LISTCHANS [(nick)]
This will give you a list of all the rooms you or the specified nickname has an access level to and tell you what access. If no nick is given, it will give you the list for the nick you are using. You must identify for the nick before you may see the listchans info.
/msg nickserv listchans JoeUser
/msg nickserv listchans
This is a very useful command. If you have forgotten which rooms you were given access to, you can check. You can also see if anyone has added you to a room without telling you. If you use many rooms, it can become easy to forget one, so listchans can serve as a reminder.
Usage: RECOVER (nick) [(password)]
If another user is using your nick and you haven't turned nick protect on, you can use this command to disconnect the user and recover your nick. After using the recover command, you need to use the release command or wait two minutes to get the nick back. Services puts up an enforcer, to prevent someone from auto-rejoining with your nick.
If you have identified for the nick already, then you do not need to include the password. If you have not identified, then it will not work without the nick's pass.
/msg nickserv recover jimmy jimpassword
Recover is a harsh command in that it disconnects the person from the chat network. You can try asking someone to stop using your nick before recovering it. But if your nick is in use and you want it back, this is always available.
Usage: REGISTER (password) (email address)
Registers your nickname with NickServ. After registering your nickname you will always be able to use it. Other people can use it without getting access to your ops or memos unless you set protect on. When registering a nick, an entry is added to your nick access list. If your user@host mark is email@example.com, then *firstname.lastname@example.org.* is automatically added to your access list.
In general, the automatic access list entry will be useful, but you might want to consider customizing your access list. Nicks will expire if not used regularly, the exact expiry time is set by the chat network. Roots can set nicks to not expire, see held under root commands for more information.
/msg nickserv register MypassworD email@example.com
Registering a nick is an important part of using a chat network. Your nick is your identity, the only way that people will be able to recognize you. Nicks also allow you to receive memos, get status in rooms, and register your own rooms (although depending on the way the network is set up, you may need to be a network operator to register a room).
It is best to have one primary nick that people know you by, and sometimes one or two extras for various purposes. You should not register a large number of nicknames, as it is pointless and wastes database space.
Usage: RELEASE (nick) [(password)]
This command will release a nick which is being held by a nick enforcr. An enforcer will go away in two minutes if release is not used. You must either have identified for the nick or include the password in the command. See recover for more information.
/msg nickserv release jimmy jimpassword
This command should generally be used after using recover. You may find a nick of yours that has protect set on being enforced, this is because someone was recently trying to use it. Many new users get confused by the enforcer, and think that someone took their nick. Enforcer is just a part of services.
Usage: SET (command) [(value)]
After you have registered your nick, the set command allows the settings to be changed. You must identify to NickServ before being able to change any settings.
AUTHORIZE - Require authorization for others to add you to buddy lists.
EMAIL - Change your email address.
FIELD - Set additional information for a nickname.
MFORWARD - Forward memos to a different nickname.
MLOCK - Lock your preferred user modes.
MRECEIPTS - Receive notification when a memo you sent is read.
NOMEMO - Disable memo receive service.
NOOP - Prevent others from adding you to room lists.
PASSWD - Change your nick password.
PROTECT - Set nick protect on/off.
SECURE - Ignore the access list except for determining whether to guest the person.
SHOWEMAIL - Allow users to see your email address.
URL - Change your URL
/msg nickserv help set (topic)
Usage: SET AUTHORIZE AUTODECLINE [(CHANLISTS)] [on|off]
If you enable this feature, others may no longer add you to channel access lists.
/ns set authorize autodecline chanlists on
There generally isn't a need to turn this on, but if people have a tendency to add you to lists despite your wishes, this will prevent it.
Usage: SET EMAIL (email address)
Use this command to change the email address attached to your nickname.
/msg nickserv set email firstname.lastname@example.org
You should keep your email address current so that if you forget your password it can be emailed back to you. Your email address will not show unless you set showemail on.
Usage: SET FIELD (field) [(text)]
The Field setting allows the user to add extended information to his/her registered nickname. The fields can be pre-set on the server level or the user can use the unused Comment field to enter business or personal comments. If no field name is used, it will display the list of the fields.
If no information is entered it will delete the current information in the field.
The fields are settable on the server running Services, only server administrators can name the fields. Please look at the AdminServ services field commands for additional information.
/msg nickserv set field
/msg nickserv set field Age 30
/msg nickserv set field Age
/msg nickserv set field Comment1 personal comments
Fields are a nice way to add things to your public information. Remember, anything you add will be viewable by everyone, so make sure you want the information to be public. But this way you can have a more thorough description to help people get to know you.
Usage: SET MFORWARD [on|off] [(nick)]
This command will redirect all memos arriving to the nickname you are using to a new nickname that you specify. You need to be identified to both nicknames in order to enable this command. If you set MFORWARD OFF it will stop forwarding memos for the nick you are using. You cannot turn MFORWARD on if you have NOMEMO set on.
/msg nickserv set mforward on JennAway
/msg nickserv set mforward off
If you have multiple nicks you will probably want to send most of your memos to one of them. This way you can check all of your memos at once. You might want to keep a nick's memos separate if you get different kinds of memos for each nick. But if you do, make sure you remember to read your memos for your less commonly used nicks.
Usage: SET MLOCK [on|off]
This command allows you to lock a set of modes for your nickname. Set your modes to the modes you want to lock, and then set mlock on. You will be able to manually change your modes against your mlock, but when you go to use your nick and identify, your modes will automatically be set to your mlock.
/msg nickserv set mlock on
If you find yourself changing your modes every time you log on, then you should set an mlock. It's just a convenience for those who do not like the modes that they default to.
Usage: SET MRECEIPTS [on|off]
This setting instructs MemoServ to send you a memo notification when a user has read a memo you have sent.
/msg nickserv set mreceipts on
/msg nickserv set mreceipts off
If you need to know when someone has gotten the information you sent, then turn mreceipts on. Also, this way if you do not get a memo, you will know that the one you sent was never read. It is best left off, to avoid pointless memos, unless you have a reason to desire the information.
Usage: SET NOMEMO [on|off]
This prevents people from being able to memo you. You cannot turn NOMEMO on if you have MFORWARD set on.
/msg nickserv set nomemo on
If you do not want to get memos from chatting, you can just turn them off for your nick.
Usage: SET NOOP [on|off]
If you set noop on, then services will not automatically op you in rooms you have access in. You can choose to op/voice yourself by using the chanserv op and voice commands.
/msg nickserv set noop on
This is useful if you wish to enter a room without making it clear that you are an op. If you are an op in a help room, but not currently able to help out, you might want to join without being opped. In general, you will probably want to leave it off for convenience.
Usage: SET PASSWD (new password)
This command is used to change your nick password.
/msg nickserv set passwd newp4ss
Use this to change your password. You should always change your password if it has somehow been learned by someone. You also might want to change it if you are having difficulty remembering the current pass.
Usage: SET PROTECT [high|normal|off]
This setting is designed to protect your nickname from being used by other users. When set in the normal mode a user must match an access list entry to utilize the nickname. The user is given 60 seconds to identify to the nickname.
If the user fails to identify in that time then the nickname is changed to a temporay Guest nickname and a services agent will be used to hold your nickname to prevent its being immediately used. You can release the nickname by using the RELEASE command.
When this is set to high users must identify to the nicname prior to using the nickname. As soon as services detects that the nickname is in use with an unidentified user it will change the nickname to 'Guest'. This eliminates the 60 second grace period that the normal setting provides.
/msg nickserv set protect high
/msg nickserv set protect normal
/msg nickserv set protect off
This command was formally called kill but was renamed to better describe its function and sound more user-friendly. If you are willing to let others use your nick when you are not using it, then leave protect off. You can always retrieve your nick whenever you want it, see the nickserv recover command.
However, if you use your nick often, you may want to keep protect on, so that people will not be confused by having other people using your nick. If you are a network operator, you should definitely keep protect on. Note that if protect is off, people can use your nick, but services does not recognize them as you or give them your access.
Usage: SET SHOWEMAIL [on|off]
To allow users to see your email address in the info command, set showemail on. It defaults to on.
/msg nickserv set showemail on
Use this only if you want to make your email address public. Remember, you might get email from anyone on the chat network. It might be good to set it on if it is a more private network and you want people to be able to easily contact you, or if you are a contact for something related to the chat network.
For example, if you admin a server, you might want an email address that you use for chat related email to be public.
Usage: SET URL [(url)]
This allows you to change the URL in the nickname information which is available to all users through the INFO command. If you do not put anything after the world URL then it will erase the current URL without replacing it..
/msg nickserv set url http://www.webmaster.com/
If you have a home page you want to show others, this is a good place to mention it. Again, just keep in mind that any information revealed there will be public.
Usage: WATCH [ADD|DEL|LIST|WIPE] [(nick|room)]
This command will have NickServ manage your Watch list. A watch list is similar to a notify list or a buddy list. It will inform you when nicks you specify are in use. You can add rooms to your watch list and you will be informed when the room empties or reforms. You do not need the person's approval to add them to your watch list.
ADD - Add a user or room to your watch list.
DEL - Delete a user or room from your watch list.
LIST - List the entries in the watch list.
WIPE - Remove all entries from the watch list.
/msg NickServ watch add Mark
/msg NickServ watch add #ConferenceRoom
/msg NickServ watch del Mark
/msg NickServ watch list
Like the buddy command you can use this for people or rooms that you often interact with. You should not add someone to both your buddy and watch list as that would notify you twice each time the person appears or disappears.
