For assistance beyond the contents of this email, please join and ask #oftc.

Some of the Tor IRC channels on OFTC are protected from unregistered
nicks from joining as an anti-spam measure.

The nick "Lashuk" is not registered with NickServ.

To join #tor-dev (and #tor-project, and some others...), you need to

1. Register your nick with nickserv

    /msg nickserv help register

    After confirming there was no errors ...

2. Verify your nick at https://services.oftc.net

    - Click login in the top right
    - Login with the credentials you created in (1)
    - Click Account at the top
    - Click Verify on the left
    - Solve a captcha

    After confirming there was no errors ...

3. Tell nickserv you've verified your nick

    /msg nickserv checkverify

    If this works, your nick will gain +R mode
    and can join #tor-dev (and others)

In the future when you connect to OFTC, you will only need to do

    /msg nickserv identify YourPassword YourNick
