How to Register a Nick (Through the KC WebClient)

In order to chat in most channels (rooms) on KinkstersChat, you need a registered nick.

You may register your nick with KC's NickServ when you have spent 10 minutes connected to the server with the nick you wish to register. We recommend you use the waiting time to introduce yourself in our Main Lobby #KinkstersChat and to familiarise yourself with our Rules

Below we will run through the process of nick registration through the webclient

Registering through the KC Webclient:
In order to register through the webclient, you click the "Home" icon in the browsers lower left corner, after which a menu will popup. In this menu you pick the 5th item down (Register nickname) and click it after which a popout box will appear.

In the poppet box (Register nickname), you will be able to fill out your desired e-mail address and your desired password. Remember you need to put in a valid e-mail as a verification e-mail will be sent to you with a code. Once you have filled out your information and simply press the "Register nickname" button at the bottom of the popout.

After completing the above instructions, you should get the following return from the server:
An email containing nickname activation instructions has been sent to [Your E-mail].
If you do not complete registration within one day, your nickname will expire.
[Your Nickname] is now registered to [Your E-mail], with the password [Your Password].

If you attempt to register before you've had your nick for 10 minutes, you will get the following error message in your popup
"You can not register your nick so soon after connecting. Please wait a while and try again." Please use the timetamp of the webclient to see when you've been using your nick for 10 minutes.

Verfication process
As stated above an e-mail will be sent to the address you registred with, and in order to verify your nick registration it needs to be a valid e-mail (as you'll otherwise not receive an e-mail with a verification code). If the e-mail is not received, please check your spamfolder before contacting us for help.

Once you receive the e-mail, please take time to read it, and also please make sure to familiarise yourself with our rules, if you have not done so already.

In the e-mail you will find the following:
/msg NickServ VERIFY REGISTER [yournick] [registrationcode]

You need to copy the command and paste it into your chat-client. Or you can simply type it, if you have the patience for that ;-) Once you have done so (within the 24 hour deadline), you will receive the following message from the server:
[23:27:16]  -NickServ- Welcome to KinkstersChat, [nick]! Here on KinkstersChat, we provide services to enable the registration of nicknames and channels! For details, type /msg NickServ help and /msg ChanServ help.

Voila, you are now a card-carrying member of KinkstersChat :-)

All new registrations have the following settings:
  • Hidemail flag - your e-mail will only be visible to KC server admins
  • Enforce - after connecting you need to identify to your nick within 30 seconds (default time)
