NickServ ChanServ MemoServ

Syntax: RECOVER nickname [password]

Allows you to recover your nickname if someone else has
taken it; this does the same thing that NickServ does
automatically if someone tries to use a kill-protected

When you give this command, NickServ will bring a fake
user online with the same nickname as the user you're
trying to recover your nick from.  This causes the IRC
servers to disconnect the other user.  This fake user will
will remain online for one minute to ensure that the other
user does not immediately reconnect; after that minute, you
can reclaim your nick.  Alternatively, use the RELEASE
command (/msg NickServ HELP RELEASE) to get the nick
back sooner.

In order to use the RECOVER command for a nick, your
current address as shown in /WHOIS must be on that nick's
access list, or you must supply the correct password for
the nickname.
