I hate how the first time I change my nickname while connected will change my main nickname to that nickname.

I started as hixxy, changed to evilircmafia, then back to hixxy and my $mnick was now evilircmafia.

I think it would be much better if all nick changes made while connected to a network didn't affect your main nickname, so when I disconnect even if my current nickname is different to my main nickname it will not change. Obviously this would have to be added as an option rather than changed.

Yeah that annoys me too. Usually I /tnick to avoid it, but it would be nice if there was an option.


If only women came with popup menus and online help.

I agree, I hate svsnicks changing my main nickname.


What do you do at the end of the world? Are you busy? Will you save us?

I second this motion... I would love that the main and alternate nicks I configure in the options would be static and not changed by normal /nick or svsnick usage

reversing the /tnick and /nick aliasses could be a way to counter the first of happening ( alias nick !tnick $1- , alias tnick !nick $1- )


If it ain't broken, don't fix it!

Yes, some method should exist to easily avoid changing the main dialog names. In my opinion, there's really no reason why /mnick shouldn't be a command in addition to its current status as an alias. Although it's not a perfect solution, I think it would solve most of these "nickname woes."
