Freenode webchat invalid password msg - How to reset freenode password?
Hello all,

I registered with last week. I registered the nick: codeslayer2010, which was successful. I followed the instructions in the confirmation email and ran this:

/msg NickServ VERIFY REGISTER codeslayer2010 <password withheld>

I identified myself to the server and was able to join some channels and chat with colleagues that very night. Strangely, though I am unable to logon to IRC webchat channels today, and I'm unclear on what could be the problem, though I suspect somehow it's password related.

Here is the error I am fedoragetting:

[14:34] -NickServ- This nickname is registered. Please choose a different nickname, or identify via /msg NickServ identify <password>.
[14:34] == gateway/web/freenode/ip. is now your hidden host (set by syn.)
[14:34] -NickServ- Invalid password for codeslayer2010.
[14:35] == #linux #linux-unregistered Forwarding to another channel

Can anyone tell me the process for resetting your freenode password when you have forgotten it? I couln't find a link on how to do it, so that is why I decided to post a query.

Thanks all and cheers.

From the Freenode FAQ at


What do I do if I forget my password?
If you forget your password, but still have access to the email account that is associated with the IRC account, staff can send a password reset email. Simply ask in #freenode or PM a staff member to have the email sent.
