Reset password for freenode.net

--- Edit with new information

As many people here have noted, you can message NickServ with the following:

Syntax: SET PASSWORD

Example:
/msg NickServ SET PASSWORD swordfish

--- Original

So, I had a hard time finding this info. If you have registered a nick in irc.freenode.net, and have forgotten your password, you must join #freenode and ask an operator to send you a reset password email. Ping me if this helped you!

THANK YOU! You're right, I've been trying to figure this out for about 20 minutes.

if you're already registered, doing /msg chanserv SET PASSWORD works too. otherwise go to #freenode and an admin will send you an email.

Tried to do this today and some things have changed. Currently you need to msg NickServ:

Syntax: SET PASSWORD

Example:
/msg NickServ SET PASSWORD swordfish
