IRC Nicknames are registered through the webpage, NOT nickserv, as on normal networks. When you log on to the Fuel Rats website (under Profile > Overview), you are presented with an option on the right hand side where you can add IRC nicknames.
Important Note: These guides assume you are using the status window of IRC, and NOT any chat channels. The TechRats recommend to always use the main status channel when inputting passwords into IRC, just in case you forget a "/"!
To register your first nickname: (DO THIS WITH A PLAIN NICKNAME WITHOUT ANY [TAGS])
To register all other subsequent nicknames: (Such as Rat[PC] or Rat[Work])
