I can't seem to connect to a server. It always says "9 char nick drone." and then a closing link. Why??

It was just that your network had all 9character nicks or something in your old nick that was a spam drone mask you can try an other nick but try shorter then 9 chars.
You're welcome smile

Realize too, some networks don't allow 'characters' other than the alphabet. Always good to test a simple nick when you run into troubles smile
