Choosing a Nickname

Jump to: navigation, search

You are represented on the IRC by his nickname (nickname). The nickname is freely selectable, but may not be longer than 9 characters. The nickname must be unique, d. H. At the same time nobody else is allowed on the IRC with the same nickname. For this reason, the nickname should be chosen so that it does not conflict with other IRCers who also use or want to use this nickname. IRC should be fun and that's why such contenders should be avoided in advance.

Another reason to choose the nickname not too stupid (now in the truest sense of the word) is that everything you say and do on the IRC will appear and be seen under this nickname. If you choose it unfavorably, confusion with other IRs with the same or similar nickname can happen. If you choose a silly or vulgar name, you will not be taken seriously.
