NickServ Commands

Register your nickname

This command registers your nickname into the Rizon database and makes sure no other user is able to use this nickname. However, Please be aware that nicks expire after 90 days of non-usage.

  • Usage: /msg NickServ REGISTER [password] [email]
    • Example: /msg NickServ REGISTER mypasswordatrizon

Please be aware that the email must be valid as confirmation number sent to this email must be verified in order for the registration process to complete.

  • Usage: /msg NickServ CONFIRM [confirmation code]
    • Example: /msg NickServ CONFIRM 20sik25t2

Cancel registration

This command will cancel the current registration request on your nickname. This is used when the email you used to register is invalid.

  • Usage: /msg NickServ CANCEL [password]

Please be aware that you will have to re-issue the registration command with a valid email, and then enter the confirmation code to register.

Resend confirmation code

This command resends the confirmation code to your registered email. If you entered invalid email address, you can use Cancel and re-register with your valid id.

  • Usage: /msg NickServ RESEND

Identify to your nickname

Now that you have registered your nickname, it is very important to remember to identify EVERY TIME you access Rizon. The password in this case is the password you supplied during nick registration.

  • Usage: /msg NickServ IDENTIFY [password]
    • Example: /msg NickServ IDENTIFY mypasswordatrizon

Change password

To change your nick password:

  • Usage: /msg NickServ set PASSWORD new password
    • Example: /msg NickServ set PASSWORD supersecretpass123

Note: PASSWORD is the word password, not your old password.

Group nicknames

This command groups your CURRENT nickname with your TARGET nickname.

  • Usage: /msg NickServ GROUP [TARGET] [password]
    • Example: Your main nickname is OldNick which holds access to all your channels (op in some channel, voice in another etc) and you logon to rizon with NewNick, you would now like to have same permissions as your oldnick, you would have to do /msg NickServ group OldNick oldnickspassword.

Please be aware that grouping your existing nick to a newnick will make your old nick loose all access in all channels.

Recover nickname

If you logon to Rizon and notice your registered nickname is being used by another user. You can have services retreive this nickname for you through recover. Alternatively, you could use ghost in order to recover your nickname.

  • Usage: /msg NickServ RECOVER [nickname] [password]
    • Example: /msg NickServ RECOVER OldNick mypasswordatrizon

Following recover, services holds your nickname for one minute. In order to release your nickname sooner:

  • Usage: /msg NickServ RELEASE [nickname] [password]
    • Example: /msg NickServ RELEASE OldNick mypasswordatrizon


The ghost command is useful when a "ghost" of your nick is present on IRC. The ghost is not really connected but IRC assumes it to be. This could be due to various different reasons such as internet issues, an abrupt shutdown, or another user using your nick. Unlike recover, ghost allows you to reclaim your nick right away.

  • Usage: /msg NickServ GHOST [nickname] [password]
    • Example: /msg NickServ GHOST OldNick mypasswordatrizon

Access List

This command lists the channels the nickname has access on:

  • Usage: /msg NickServ ALIST

Removing channel access

One's own access can be removed from a channel via ALIST DEL

  • Usage: /msg NickServ ALIST del #CHANNEL
    • Example: /msg NickServ ALIST del #Rizon

Nick information

If you would like to know information about a nick which is registered (last time seen, when it was registered), you can use the command info.

  • Usage: /msg NickServ INFO [nick]
    • Example: /msg NickServ INFO OldNick
    • This will return Information about OldNick such as
-NickServ- OldNick is oldnick
-NickServ- Last seen address:
-NickServ- Time registered: Nov 27 13:29:55 2005 MST
-NickServ- Last seen time: Dec 13 09:54:12 2010 MST


If you would like to logout of services, you can use the command logout. This command makes you not recognized as the owner of the nick.

  • Usage: /msg NickServ LOGOUT

Note: You must be identified in order to use this command.


Use this command If you would like to drop your nickname for any reason. Please note that the effects of this command are irreversible and you will loose ALL current access to all channels.

  • Usage: /msg NickServ DROP [nickname]
    • Example: /msg NickServ DROP OldNick

Note: As a security measure, you will be asked to verify the drop command in order to complete the drop procedure.

  • Usage: /msg NickServ DROP Jason
    • Example: /msg NickServ DROP Jason G1UXZjsjf

ChanServ Commands

Users can use services in order to claim/register an empty channel. Registering a channel keeps the channel name save for the user and gives them the ability to use variety of different Rizon services.

    • Example: /msg ChanServ REGISTER #newchannel mynewpassword A brand new channel

Limitserv dynamically limits the number of concurrent channel members in order to prevent join floods in channels containing at least 20 users.

To remove LimitServ, use the following command:

LimitServ will change the user limit when the current limit has been off by 2 or more users for at least one minute.


12:01 -!- mode/#help [+l 25] by LimitServ
12:02 -!- user21 [user@21.V.Host] has joined #help
12:02 -!- user22 [user@22.V.Host] has joined #help
12:03 -!- mode/#help [+l 27] by LimitServ

The settings shown below are dependant on the current user-count and are not user configurable.

Current user count New user limit
Less than 100 Current user count + 5
100-299 Current user count + 8
300-499 Current user count + 10
