Ok, found nothing during my search.

Possible bug.

mIRC for some reason doesn't allow users to join channels greater than 89 characters. (This is excluding the #.)

Even though the maximum length of a channel is 200 (On some networks.)

Even though it's possible for U:lined services and socket clones to join.

This a bug ... or a feature?

The one above was about 200 characters or so.

yes and you said "mIRC for some reason doesn't allow users to join channels greater than 89 characters. (This is excluding the #.)", so 89 + 1 for the # is 90 the same limitation the window names in mirc has, so what im saying is it might be more a bug in that you cant join a channel over 90 becuase the window name cant be created for it.
