Ok, been a while but i decided to start scripting again.
Problem i have..

on text and on input
i want the allignment to look like this

[@/Marantz ] hi
[./Marantz ] hi
[+/Marantz ] hi
[!/Marantz ] hi
[~/Marantz ] hi
[&/Marantz ] hi
[%/Marantz ] hi

obviously that's not straight lol
with a maximum nick length of 10 chars
and for it to stay alligned if a user has more than 1 mode prefix and to cover all possible mode prefixes
ie; + and @ or + and .
and for when a user has no modes at all
i just can't remember how to do anything anymore

thanks in advance if anyone can help.
