/msg Q@CServe.quakenet.org NEWPASS <oldpassword> <newpassword> <newpassword>


  • <oldpassword> - Your account password. This is to verify your identity while changing your password.
  • <newpassword> - The new password. The new password should be written twice for validation.

Additional info:

Your new password must be at last 6 characters long, contain at least one number and one letter, and may not contain sequences of letters or numbers. Your new password MUST be given twice, to check that you didn't mistype it. Your old password is needed for verification purposes.

For security reasons, the command should be sent to Q@CServe.quakenet.org and not Q.

After executing the command, an email will be sent to the account's email address with the ability to RESET the password to the old password. After the password has been changed, other critical settings (e.g. account password or email address) can't be changed for a few days due to security reasons, it can only be RESET.

If you have lost your account password you can use the REQUESTPASSWORD command to restore it.
