The RECOVER command allows you to reclaim your nickname if someone is using it. The person using it is the prompted to IDENTIFY for that nickname using the password. If he/she does not respond within 60 seconds, he/she is forcibly removed from the network. The format for this command is:

/NickServ RECOVER nickname password

Please remember that the password is case sensitive. If you find that others try to use your nickname, you should consider setting KILL ON. That way anyone not in the access list will be required to use the nickname password. If no password is sent, or the password is incorrect, then the person is forcibly removed from the network, and NickServ assigns your nickname to an enforcer.
