[How to] IRC - Group Nicknames

Postby BauerUK on Thu Oct 30, 2008 11:41 pm

I thought I should copy this here, also as it's quite useful for users.

Some users like to change their nickname to add 'AFK' or 'Away' when they're just lurking. This is fine, but you have to remember that those nick names ('Bauer-AFK' for example) are not registered by default. Unless you group those nicknames to your primary nick, there's nothing stopping someone from registering that nickname and ghost killing you when you change to that. So, my primary nickname is 'BauerUK', and let's assume I want to use 'Bauer-AFK' when I'm away, and 'Bauer-Zzz' when I'm asleep. To group those two nicknames with my primary account, I would simply change to the nickname I wanted (/nick Bauer-AFK) and then use the GROUP command, as follows:

/msg NickServ GROUP BauerUK password


Now, that nickname (Bauer-AFK) is registered, and it receives all the same privileges as BauerUK -- without having to sign up. :)

Important Note: You do not need to register the second nickname (unless it is already taken, in which case you need to identify for that nickname) in order to group. The second nickname is automatically registered upon grouping.

If you are curious about anything related to grouping nicknames, or anything related to IRC -- please feel free to PM me here, or join #darkufo (where there is a bunch of friendly folks 24/7) and ask away! :)

If you have issues doing this, please make a post in the Help Section. Thank you.
