 Why Did My Nick Change To Unidentified?

If your nick was automatically changed to Unidentified##### this means that you were using a registered nick.

  • If you registered it, you must identify (log in):
    • Change your nick back to what it was: /nick YourNameHere
    • Identify with NickServ within 60 seconds: /ns identify YourPasswordHere
  • If you did not register it:
    • The nick is already registered on the network, choose another: /nick NewNameHere
