Hey, all

Brand new install on a Win7 laptop here; I had some underscores in my user name and alt. user name initially, and my IdentD User ID; I changed the first two as I was getting an error message, "*** Your username is invalid. Please make sure that your username contains only alphanumeric characters." - Even after that time, though, I kept getting that same error.

Turns out that the IdentD User ID - if it has an underscore or etc. in it - Triggers that same message, which is less than clear; Mentioning it as someone else could get caught and confused by this.

So, suggestion: Have the error report "*** Your " then one of username or alt username or identd user id then " is invalid. Please make sure that your username contains only alphanumeric characters."

Those error messages and restrictions are put in place by whatever server you connected to, not by mIRC or any protcol it supports.
