The wiki is currently undergoing some major improvements. If you need some information and you don't know where to look, please come to #ecnet
NickServ - Nickname management services. NickServ allows users to register their nickname to prevent others from stealing their nickname. Users will also be able to kill any ghost connections with their nickname and will be able to group their most-used nicknames together so they can use the same set of settings and access for all of their nicknames.
Nicknames registered with nickserv expire after 30 days unless prior arrangements have been made with the network administration. Even though nicknames expire in 30 days, they will not be deleted unless a user requests deletion. If you will be gone for more than 30 days and do not wish your registration to expire, please contact an IRC operator in &ECNet and in most cases we can preserve your nickname longer.
