I have searched for the answer to this so sorry if I'm overlooking something obvious. Extremely simple popup to change nicks for me... one of the nicks I'm required to use on one channel is 31 chars long. Whether I am logged onto a server or not, /nick will only set the first 30 chars. I thought nicks were limited to 200 chars not 30? Could someone please advise me, thanks.

only sets them to 30 chars for me too:

//nick $str(x,50)
Code:
-
* Your nickname is now xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
-

//echo -s $len(xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx)
Code:
30
-

It depends on server/network how long nick's they allow.
Quakenet allows 15 characters for nick.
IRCnet 9 characters.

Don't know about others, but 30 should be more than enough for anyone.


Code:
//if ( khaled isgod ) echo yes | else echo no

This isn't an issue of networks, it's an issue of what the /nick command will set in mIRC's settings. I can't see it documented anywhere that it is limited to 30 chars.

/nick One45678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890

* Your nickname is now One456789012345678901234567890

//echo $me

One456789012345678901234567890

It's limited to 30 chars (when offline)

The highest number i could achieve online is also 30 because my network only allows that length in a name.
