I think it's about time the default aliases installed with mIRC were changed to only work when called as a /command. People are STILL being tricked with //echo -a $p

Code:
p {
  if (!$isid) part $1-
}

Most of those are built into IRCds ...

I just don't see the point in some of them if the IRCd already supports the command ... or something like that.

Not all ircds are the same. Plus this is a suggestion to change the existing default aliases, not add new ones.

Yeah ... I see your point on that ... nevermind.

aaaaanyway ... I wouln't mind seeing just one alias added to the aliases.ini.

Code:
/newserver {
  if (!$isid) { server -n }
}


since most people don't know how to open a new server when first using mIRC.

I tend to disagree. These alias should be simple examples to help others undertand how to make aliases. As long as users type what others tell them, you cant protect them from them selves.

The changes I propose are still simple examples.

For the newbie non programming minded user the identifier is hard to understand in my opinion. I don't think that protecting these really adds that much protection to the user. As long as there typing things when they don't know what there for, there will still be easy ways to abuse them.
