Somebody registered the nickname I've been using. Can I get it back?

The short answer is no. SlashNET does not acknowledge you as "owning" your nickname unless it is properly registered with NickServ. If you use an unregistered nickname for weeks, months, or even years, and then somebody else registers it when you are not using it, they have obtained it fairly. The only way a nickname can be "stolen" is if the NickServ password becomes compromised.
