On most networks, the username and/or ident must be lowercase only, thus you could try changing the H to h in your username and ident

its not the network because they also accepted vhost and registration and im not the onlyone that use a name like this

also my 2nd name ends up like

"13:52:32 Closing Link: dhcp-077-249-139-114.chello.nl (Invalid username [_Aisaka_Ta])
-
13:52:32 * [10101] Host disconnected"

witch suppose to be _Aisaka_Taiga_, so it must be a bug

bcause "`Aisaka_Taiga" works



it seems it has troubles to connect to rizon networks to

13:52:56 * Unable to connect to server (Connection timed out)
-
13:52:59 * Connect retry #2 irc.rizon.net (+9999) (dns pool)
-
13:53:20 * Unable to connect to server (Connection timed out)
-
13:53:23 * Connect retry #3 irc.lolipower.org (+9999)
-
13:53:44 * Unable to connect to server (Connection timed out)
-
13:53:47 * Connect retry #4 irc.rizon.no (+9999)
-
13:54:08 * Unable to connect to server (Connection timed out)
-
13:54:11 * Connect retry #5 irc.cyberdynesystems.net (+9999)

The username _Aisaka_Taiga_ simply is truncated to _Aisaka_Ta. Every network has a limit on the length of nicknames and usernames.

If "`Aisaka_Taiga" does work, why not use it? The IRC network prevents you from connecting with the username that starts with the underscore - it's not a bug, but their policy. Put on a plain nickname/username, connect to the IRC network and ask the staff at #help about the why.
My guess would be they disallow certain chars at certain positions of nicknames/usernames to keep some known spam-/floodbots off their network - but thats a guess only.

Being able to do a thing one day isn't a warranty for all the future days. Also note that the different rules may apply to connecting clients and clients that already are connected. Again, only the IRC staff can know - go and ask!

Many networks don't allow _ as the first character in ident. The error you posted clearly shows that the network is the one not allowing you to connect using that username. It has nothing to do with mIRC or any sort of bug. As stated, you can change your ident to not use the _ as the first character and then you can talk to the people in #help to find out why they have that policy. It is unlikely that they will change their policy on usernames. You may not have issues on other networks because other networks may not have the same policy.

As far as registration, you are registering a NICK, not a USERNAME (aka IDENT). Nicks may not have the same limitation.

Error messages from the network aren't guaranteed to show as many characters in a nick as are allowed on the network. Again, that's not a bug. If you were to take that error message and show it to #help as suggested, you'd get your answer. It's all based on that network's rules.

ALT-K will let you adjust colors. You may have settings to strip colors as well. I can't see the screenshot from work, but those are the two likely places to look.
