How to Use a OFTC-Registered Nickname on matrix.org

As described here: If you have a OFTC-registered nickname and want to use it from Matrix, you can do it like this:

  1. On Matrix, open a new chat (with Riot app this is the "+" sign on the bottom right)
  2. Invite @oftc-irc:matrix.org to the new chat
  3. Say !nick <yournick>
  4. A request for new chat with NickServ will pop up. Accept it and identify yourself with your OFTC password (identify <password>)

Voila, you'll be using your OFTC-registered nick through Matrix, being able to use multiple devices simultaneously with shared history and all!

How to Start Private IRC Chats, like /msg or /query

On Matrix, open a new chat (with Riot app this is the "+" sign on the bottom right) Invite @_oftc_<nick>:matrix.org to the new chat (replace <nick> with the nick name. For example, to start a chat with NickServ, invite @_oftc_NickServ:matrix.org)

This works for nicks that are known to matrix.org, i.e. if the nick has never joined an IRC channel that was bridged to matrix it won't work.
