Here is what happens when I click on connect:

* Connecting to irc.gamesurge.net (6667)
-irc.gamesurge.net- *** Looking up your hostname
-irc.gamesurge.net- *** Checking Ident
-irc.gamesurge.net- *** Found your hostname
Ping? Pong!
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: pa1n by Burstfire.UK.EU.GameSurge.net (USER: Bad username)
* Disconnected
* Connect cancelled

no one knows why its doing that lol

try typing, /fullname [color:red]yourfirstname[/color] in all lowercase.
(i.e., no capitals).

username is the email address setting in mirc, just change that to all lowercase letters and you should be able to connect. take a look at gamesurge's website, im sure they deal with this problem somewhere on it. if not, you can visit quakenet's website, http://www.quakenet.org/faq/faq.php?c=4&f=135#135.

I added help with this problem in the enable identd thread some time ago, there have also been a large number of threads in the past about this error - it's a good idea to use the Search feature before posting - expand to 'All Forums' and 'All Posts' when doing so for best results smile
