I reformatted and put XP on. When i logged into irc it says:
Your username is invalid.
Connect with your real username, in lowercase.
If your mail address were foo@bar.com, your username would be foo.

Closing Link: Sm4K by NuclearFallout.CA.US.GamesNET.net (USER: Bad username)

Any suggestions?

There are LOADS of posts already submitted about this issue - we cannot do anything about network bans.

From this page:

"This means the IRC server did not accept the username (User ID) settings in the Ident service (Identd) in mIRC under File/Options/Connect/Identd/. In the error message it shows the part it did not like between the [ ] brackets. Most probably you use characters in your File/Options/Connect/Identd/User ID settings that the server doesn't like. Make sure you remove all strange characters from your User ID. Remove dots, spaces, and all other non-alphabetical characters."

If you want more answers on this issue, go to the Search feature and expand to 'All Forums' and 'All Posts' - search for 'foo@bar' and it will come up with quite a few results.

For further information on getting the G-line removed, visit Gamesnet website at http://www.gamesnet.net [link corrected]

G'luck!

Regards,
