This is a quote from NapoleonWith registration you lose choices, most of the good nicknames are already taken and you lose freedom.
I dissagree, what if you creeate a nickserv only for registered users and the only nickname they can hold is exactly the same as the user they registered so let's say my user is nightfly that means that i can only keep nightfly as a nick without somebody stealing it from me, of course if i want to change my nick nobody would stop me. If a user is allready taken that means that so is the nick, when the user expires so does the nick... and so on, nobody would have to reserve a nick or anything... it's quite simple. Napoleon said that you lose choice, that's totaly not true, you lose choice with users too, all the good users are allready taken if you haven't been on undernet for a very long time so it's the same thing, i don't understand what's the big deal of having a nickserv, many people would welcome the ideea & like i said all this hackers who steal nicks just so nobody else could have them or to prove they can would lose a "job"
let me give you a short example :
A is ~email@example.com * 4,1 P o k e m o n R u L L z
C is ~firstname.lastname@example.org * 4,1P o k e m o n R u L L z
D is ~pokemon@PoKeMonRuLLz.users.undernet.org * 12 Pokemon Team
F is ~email@example.com * 12 Pokemon TeaM
H is ~pokemon@DoZeR.users.undernet.org * 4 Pokemon Rullz :D
and so on
i really would like an answer from sombody who has the power of doing this, and the answer should sound something like this :
A - I like your ideea, we'll see what we can do
B - I like your ideea but it can't be applied because ........
C - I don't like your ideea and it will never be aplied because ......
i think C is the answer i'll get more likely but still, can't blame me for trying :P)
what i don't want is the common answer, "This is undernet, that's what makes us special, there won't be any nickserv here because we say so"
I honestly think it's a good ideea and many people would take advantage of it or else i wouldn't have bothered to post here knowing your "disgust" towards this ideea (still dunno why & i would like to find out... if it's possible)
