Registering

Postby Karnage82 » Thu Nov 20, 2014 1:48 am

I attempted to make another nick in a channel not long ago and no matter what I try it says Nickname [name here] may not be registered. I even changed the email address and it is still giving me the same result.

I tried using Trevor_Murgothe as well and it still wouldn't let me register that name even after waiting 2 minutes.

In order to guard against imposters, your nick cannot contain the name of any member of network staff. In most cases, this rule will not cause any problems, but there are some tricky cases. For instance, because a member of network staff is named Atri, you are not able to register nicknames like Patrick, Patricia, or Atrium.

In the case of your nick, the word Trevor is the problem. See http://www.geekshed.net/2012/03/choosing-a-nickname/

How is Trevor the problem? also even though with the nick Trevor_Corvinus or Trevor_Murgothe it should have went through with the registry.

Because a member of staff is named Trevor; and your nick cannot contain the name of any member of network staff.

I figured that I would be able to do a Trevor_Corvinus(or Murgothe) nick for the channel that I frequent. But since I can't I will have to make up another name instead...which is disappointing. I mean it is understandable about Trevor being a member of your staff but from it being an entirely different name altogether I should be able to use it still.
