  Billing server information
The billing server keeps track of player's passwords and handles chat channels. One biller can be shared between many game servers. This makes chat channel and inter-zone private messaging a desirable feature of a biller. More importantly billers can contain a ban system that allow one ban to affect all zones (called a netban).

These days, the name billing server is confusing as it is just a user database. The publishers (VIE) of Subspace probably wanted to charge players a subscription and this server would control it, hence the name biller.

  Usernames
Users may request lost usernames and password resets by using the ticket support system. Please note that at no time will a billing operator request your account password. This information is not viewable for security reasons; it can only be changed.

The following information will be required for a request to be successfully completed:
    The username to be retrieved.
    A current, valid username for the player making the request.
    A current, valid e-mail address for the player making the request.
Additionally, the following criteria must be satisfied:
    The IP information, machine identification number, and possibly the time zone bias must
      match on both the username that is to be retrieved and the current username.
If all of these criteria are satisfied, the request will be processed and the user requesting the name will receive a ?message in the game with the required information, and an e-mail explaining that the request has been processed.

Rationale: By checking the IP and MID information on both usernames and ensuring a match, we can keep confusion and fraudulent claims to a bare minimum.
  Squadnames
Squadnames are a different matter than usernames and require more specific checks before a squad owner is changed. You may request a squadname by using the ticket support system

The following information will be required for a request to be successfully completed:
    A current, valid username for the player making the request.
    A current, valid e-mail address for the player making the request.
    The squadname being requested.
    The current squad password.
Additionally, the following criteria must be satisfied:
    If the squad has current and active members, at least one of those members must verify
      that the player requesting control of the squad is in fact the squad owner.
    The squad owner must display as *UNKNOWN* when using ?squadowner command.
    The username submitting the request will be granted ownership of the squad.
The squad password will be tested and verified to be working. If the squad has become orphaned and the user has the current squad password, that user will be re-granted squad ownership. If these criteria are satisfied, the request will be processed and the user requesting the squad will receive a ?message and an e-mail with the required information.

Rationale: By verifying the integrity of the squad password and verifying with current squad members if any exist, there is a reasonable assurance that the request is not fraudulent.
