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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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
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
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.
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.
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
This command lists the channels the nickname has access on:
- Usage: /msg NickServ ALIST

Limitserv dynamically limits the number of concurrent channel members in order to prevent join floods in channels containing at least 20 users.
It will not join smaller channels as it's lowest sensible limit is not sensitive enough for small userbases, and lower limits would need to change with each join/part, causing mode spam.

- Example: /msg LimitServ REQUEST #rizonchannel
To remove LimitServ, use the following command:
- Usage: /msg LimitServ REMOVE #channel

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|
