Lost account access

As a part of its privacy policy, NoBleme will protect your anonymity as much as possible. This means that you will never be sent any emails that could be used to link you to your identity on the website, or asking you to provide your password. On top of that, automated password recovery systems can be used in a few nefarious ways that we would rather not have to deal with. With this context in mind, NoBleme decided to not implement an automated account recovery process.

If you have lost access to your account (forgotten username, forgotten password, or otherwise), the only way to recover that access is to go on NoBleme's NoBleme's IRC chat server and ask for a website administrator to manually reset your account's password. No need to worry about identity usurpation, there is a strict process in place that will allow the administrator to verify your identity before doing the resetting.



IRC NickServ

While using IRC, you might come to the realization that nothing is stopping other users from impersonating you by "stealing" your username. This can be avoided by sending messages to a special automated user called NickServ, which is always present on the server.

You will find a list of NickServ related commands below. When a word is between [brackets], then it means that its value can be anything you want and you should replace it with something else. For example, if given the command /msg NickServ identify [password], you should use it as /msg NickServ identify myPassword123.

Most of the commands listed on this page begin with /msg NickServ. Depending on your IRC client, you might be able to shorten any such command by using /ns instead. For example, /msg NickServ identify [password] would become /ns identify [password].

/nick [username]

Changes your current username to the desired new username. If the desired username is already in use, it will not work. Your username is the same in every IRC channel on specific IRC server, there is no way to have a different username in different channels.

/msg NickServ register [password] [email-address]

Registers your current username with NickServ, making you its owner. Even though you must specify an email address when registering your account, it will never be used. Make sure you remember your chosen password, as there is no way to recover it if you lose it. Do not register other people's usernames in order to annoy or impersonate them, this would only lead to getting permanently banned from NoBleme's IRC server and all your registered usernames being unregistered.

/msg NickServ identify [password]

Identifies you as the owner of the username you are currently using. You must execute this command every time you connect to NoBleme's IRC server, otherwise your username will be changed at random after one minute. Most IRC clients give you ways to automatically execute certain commands as you connect to an IRC server, adding the identify command to this automation will avoid having to type it manually every single time.

/msg NickServ password [password] [new-password]

Changes your current password to a new password of your choosing. Make sure you remember your chosen password, as there is no way to recover it if you lose it.

/msg NickServ recover [username] [password]

Disconnects from the IRC server anyone who is currently using your registered username. This is useful in case you have been disconnected and a ghost of you still lingers idly on the server under your username.

/msg NickServ ghost [username] [password]

If someone has been attempting to bruteforce your NickServ password (trying over and over to identify or recover in order to guess your password), the system might lock anyone out of using your username. In such a situation, the ghost command allows you to release your username, so that you can use it again.

/msg NickServ drop [username]

Unregisters your username, deleting it from NickServ's database.
