Stormbit offers various services to faclitate the registration of nicknames and channels. All of the commands on this page are case-insensitive, with the exception of passwords.
NickServ enables you to register your nickname and prevent other users from being stolen or used by other people.
/msg NickServ REGISTER <password> <email-address> /msg NickServ IDENTIFY <nick> <password> /msg NickServ GROUP
Register an account under the name JaneDoe with NickServ:
/nick JaneDoe /msg NickServ REGISTER MyGreatPassword [email protected]
Log into the current nickname you are using on NickServ, if it is registered:
/msg NickServ IDENTIFY MyGreatPassword
Log into the nickname ‘JaneDoe’ without switching to it, so long as your current nickname is grouped to it:
/msg NickServ IDENTIFY JaneDoe MyGreatPassword
Group the nickname you are currently using to the NickServ account you are logged into. You should only group names that you acutally intend to use:
/msg NickServ GROUP
ChanServ lets you register and protect a channel.
You don’t need to use ChanServ to create a new channel, you can do that with
/join. ChanServ is a way to guarantee that you remain in control of a
/msg ChanServ REGISTER <#channel> /msg ChanServ AOP <#channel> ADD <nick>
Register the channel
#CherryJelly to you. This makes the channel permanent
and gives you status as the owner of the channel.
/msg ChanServ register #CherryJelly
Don’t abuse this, just use it to maintain channels you have created.
Add the user ‘JaneDoe’ to the AOP (auto-op) list. This means that they are automatically assigned channel operator (@) status when they join the channel:
/msg ChanServ AOP #CherryJelly ADD JaneDoe
There is much more to running a channel, but the more detailed aspects of channel management can be found on the Managing A Channel help page.
HostServ allows you to change the default Stormbit host masking into something
prettier. By default, masked hosts look like
StormBit-6cu93m.internet-provider-from-2002.net – you can change that!
Though our policy on this is highly liberal, there’s a couple rules you should still know:
It may take up to a day to approve the hostmask, and if it’s denied you will be allowed to fix any problems and resubmit it.
/msg HostServ REQUEST <vHost>
Request the hostmask
/msg HostServ Request i.really.like.cherry.jelly
