please excuse my ignorance.
i think the problem's my nick. message is ... nick must be registered.
i am registered, but i think when i had computer repaired i put in my user name and password backwords, i did change my email address; wow, did i open a can of worms!
so followed bot's instructions to change nick.

can you help me to confirm?
please advise as i am always getting kicked. been in mirc 2 years, but i honestly don't understand networks, hard as i try.
maybe if i get the nick problem resoved, i could get to mirc; and stop making soooo many mistakes.
was going to type in what bot said to do to confirm, but was told to type in other stuff, and when i did; i got no reply???
gosh, i just keep doing things wrong. should i type bot's instructions anyway?
thank you.

1) There are basically two types of registration
a) Registration of the software.
b) Registration of your nick on the network.
These are two completely different registrations and have nothing to do with each other.

It appears that you're referring to registering your nick on a network, which probably uses something like nickserv.

We can not confirm registration of a nick, as confirmation is usually done by sending a message to nickserv containing a custom confirmation code, which would've been sent to tbe e-mail address that you used when you registered.

If you didn't get the e-mail, ensuring that you checked any junk/spam folders, and it's been a couple of days (I've seen some that allow up to 72 hours), then try submitting the registration information again, being very careful about the order in which the information is supplied.
Most nick registration services require it in a format like this:

/msg nickserv register <password> <e-mail address>

For further assistance, I strongly recommend the networks help channel, usually #help

by registered, i mean licensed.
and i pretty much have to wait for the ban to be lifted to do anything.
i don't get spam email. so if that's where my email will go, i'll have to do something about that first.
i did register my nick, but did not confirm yet. don't think i'll get an email until i confirm, if i read the instructions correctly.
i'll try #help again, but last night i couldn't do anything in help. just got a message that i was banned, and couldn't send a message for help from bot.
that's when i thought maybe i should ask first.
thanks for the help, and responding.

Normally when you register a nick, an automatic e-mail is generated with a confirmation code. That code is what you need to send to nickserv to confirm your e-mail address is active and that you are the person that requested the nick.

the confusion on my part is the message you must be a "registered nick"???, when i try to enter mirc...but i don't need to be registered to be in irc.

thank you, i'll wait for a while and try later to correct this.

ok, i'll bite.
i have a blonde question. been reading alot, but can't find the answer to this question.
i seem to need irc to get into mirc. yes?
irc is realmworld? yes?
then i have to close realmworld to enter anything else, or i will be banned for running 2 networks. yes?
i am female and blonde and my brain doesn't seem to think the way others do, and you are willing to help. yes?
so can you correct me with a blonde answer please, so that i might stop being banned?
i am being honest. i truly don't understand networks, no matter how much i read; as i was always in mirc and never had to deal with this problem before.
the only time i was banned was when i changed to a router, and needed router help. and that was easy because i could always get help in mirc. now i am lost.
i am happy for you that you are so happy in irc. what do you do there? and how do you you get to this happiness place? maybe i'll just stay in irc, if i can find some human beings there. my friends are all in mirc. but i can make new friends.
remember blonde, female. you might need help with this. :-)
my interests are music, singing, day trading, and Christian fellowship (old time religion).
thank you for your help.

Close. You use mIRC to connect to an IRC network.

Close. Realmworld is an IRC network.

No. mIRC has the abiltiy to be connected to multiple networks at the same time. There is no way for someone else to tell if you are connected to one network, or 100 (although I don't suggest you try that higher number)

If you are being banned, then there must be a reason, but so far as I can tell, you haven't provided the reason.

Try searching on Search IRC for channels or networks that have similar interests.

The more detailed information you can give, the better we might be able to help you.

that was very informative. thank you.
i have uninstalled all, and reinstalled.
i am now atleast able to connect again.
did visit your site you recommended. but to no avail, after making a dozen changes.
my problem is definately my nick is not registered.
i am afraid to make anymore changes. i keep screwing things up.
now, i have to register my nick. just typing it in isn't working.
will try through the bot tomorrow. it's late.
thanks for your help. i feel i so close to being where i want to be, but then i never encountered this problem before.
i hope before i'm dead and gone i get this fixed. it's really bothering me. there must be a way to correct this problem.
is my nick my password or my nickname. i can't remember? it's been so long.
thank you again for your help.

thank you.

i can not register my nick.

have tried several times, following bots instructions, and i am not getting any email to confirm, so tonight i changed my email to yahoo where i can get junk email.
i hope this works. also changed my nick and password....starting all over.

(also, under excursion settings/general, i only had 3 checks and i know that's not correct. but settings/general is not in 2006 instructions. can you tell me where to find those settings?
actually most of my settings were gone and i am working with old instructions, except for realmworld 2006. makes me wonder how many that ARE checked are wrong??? so any other newer instructions for mirc, or chat boards; please let me know how to access.)

thank you so much for your help. :-))

If you're using Excursion, then you should check with their help boards for assistance with configuring. The same goes with any other scripts that you have that need to be configured, and possibly updated to work with the current version of mIRC.

These boards are for mIRC assistance. mIRC, to my knowledge, maintains compatability for the settings made in previous versions of mIRC, so that if you made a setting change in 5.9 (for example), that same setting would be in 6.21, and, probably, in the same location.

Go to the networks help channel or website and ask them why their registration email is failing to reach you.

While it shouldn't matter, I've noticed that occasionally hotmail and yahoo (more often with hotmail than yahoo) receive the e-mail then delete it straight off, even though they aren't supposed to.

If you have tried one of those types of e-mail addresses and have another one you can try, I suggest you try that.

The reason it goes for 24 hours then stops, is because most registrations require the confirmation code within 24 hours, and if it's not received, then the registration is cancelled.

You don't need to change your e-mail in the program, but rather the e-mail address that you submitted when you used the registration command to register your nick.

It probably would've been in a format like
/msg nickserv register <password> <e-mail address>
where <password> is a password of your choosing
and <e-mail address> is a valid e-mail address that you have access to.

If you are trying to change the email address listed in the mIRC oprions dialog, you can change it when you've disconnected from all servers or by typing /emailaddr email@here.com and it will then take affect next time you reconnect.

what is the email address that i should type in to allow outlook express to accept so that i can get the registration confirmation code?
night after night i register, and i get no email.
i was told to email op@karaoke-realm.net....i think, i'm really tired; to get help with this problem.
i have tried to email for help there before and never got a reponse. why would i? if verizon is blocking the registration email, they surely are blocking the other. geez, they blocked my "prayer chain" email from my church and i had to go though someone else to open that!
can someone help me out?
i really would like to register my nick.
thanks,
readysetgo
ps. a word of advise to anyone reading this. never ever change your email address.

Look online for free web-based e-mail. Avoid AOL, Yahoo, and Hotmail as many networks won't let you register using those. Just about anything else will be fine.

I would like to recommend G-mail from Google for this.

P.S.: You might want to check your contract with Verizon, as it may be a contract violation for them to purposely block e-mails that you haven't specified.

EDIT: This should've been a response to Readysetgo, not Riamus. Clicked the wrong link. Sorry.

hello
i did contact verizon and lift the spam blocker. i am sure there are many who have verizon. are they all having problems?
i will take your advice, as i don't know what else to do and there are so many email sites, all with extra security and spam blockers; and i am really baffled by this???
thank you for replying...

As mentioned, you can use Gmail, though if Verizon disabled the spam blocker, then you shouldn't need another e-mail address. If you want one for miscellaneous things like this and aren't planning to use it for normal e-mail, then any e-mail service is good enough. It doesn't really matter how good it is when it's just an address used to miscellaneous things like this.
