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:
 
  
 
# On Matrix, open a new chat (with Riot app this is the "+" sign on the bottom right)
 
# On Matrix, open a new chat (with Riot app this is the "+" sign on the bottom right)
 
# Invite @oftc-irc:matrix.org to the new chat
 
# Invite @oftc-irc:matrix.org to the new chat
 
# Say !nick <yournick>  
 
# Say !nick <yournick>  
# A request for new chat with NickServ will pop up. Accept it and identify yourself with your OFTC password (identify <password>)
+
# A request for new chat with NickServ will pop up (if not invite @_oftc_NickServ:matrix.org). Accept it and identify yourself with your OFTC password (identify <password>)
 
+
# Send "REGISTER <password> <email>"
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)
 
 
 
To register a nick use /msg NickServ REGISTER <password> <email> ie, with your direct chat with @_oftc_NickServ:matrix.org, send REGISTER <password> <email>
 
  
 
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.
