NickServ: identify with other nick
« on: January 17, 2010, 11:09:41 AM »

Hello,

I'm wondering if there is a way to id with nickserv using other nickname than registered? In other words: I have registered nick A and I have left session as A|away, when I get back I can't id because nickserv is saying: your nick isn't registered. So I have to change back to nick A and then it works.

Thank you for your help.

You can group the nicknames.

1. Register A.
2. /nick A|away and register that.
3. As A|away, do: /nickserv group A *password for A*.
4. You're not grouped into A and A|away will get the same permissions as A.

Yeah, well. It's a some kind of solution. But I really can't imagine registering and grouping all nicknames I use. IMO better would be to have registration bind somehow with user@IP/host. I don't know how this feature works on other irc servers, but good example here is a ircstorm.net where you can register one nick and have possibility to use other as well and id while using them.

This kind of thing is a matter of how each Services package handles nick registration.  Anope uses a grouping scheme, which is similar to the linking scheme that it inherited from IRCServices and the grouping scheme inherited from Epona.  I believe Atheme works on a similar concept.  I have used other Services packages that do what you want. but Anope is not one of them.  We may or may not be making 1.9.x support something along these lines, but for now, it can't do it.

Also, to Martin, a shortcut, you can skip the register part in step 2 of your list and just group to your other nick, it automatically registers the new nick when grouping.
