I need to have my nickname registered with Freenode for some of the #monero IRC features, including tippero. How can I register my nickname?
There are some instructions on this web page: https://freenode.net/kb/answer/registration
Basically, you enter the command:
/msg NickServ REGISTER yourpassword firstname.lastname@example.org
Then you will receive an email containing a command you will have to run to complete the registration.
After that, to connect to Freenode with your nickname, you can either use SASL (https://freenode.net/kb/answer/sasl) or connect with the command:
/connect chat.freenode.net 6667 yournickname:yourpassword
