Sorry about that, had something extra that wasn't needed
Code:
on *:ACTION:*:#:{
  var %m = /\bslaps\b.*\b\Q $+ $replace($me,\E,\E\\E\Q) $+ \E\b/iS
  if ($regex($1-,%m)) {
    msg $chan DON'T SLAP ME!
  }
}


;Edited to fix code

Hmm, thanks, but it doesnt seem to work. I put it in the remotes tab in script editor.

Froggie, why not use the on action regex instead:
Code:
on $*:ACTION:$(/\bslaps\b.*\b\Q $+ $replace($me,\E,\E\\E\Q) $+ \E\b/iS):#:{
  msg $chan DON'T SLAP ME!
}
You save yourself an if statement and a local variable. A trigger flood control may be put into consideration so the client that runs the code doesn't get scrolled.

A small criticism: You should use $replacecs() instead of $replace(), as the \Q...\E sequence is case-sensitive. An \e would not end the escape sequence, as you can see here:

Code:
//echo -a $regex(\e,/^\Q\e\E$/)

Can anyone be so kind to explain to me why the $replacecs() is or has to be used? In other words, what's the main role it plays?

Hixxy's post is quite clear, \E isn't the same as \e in regex, $replace could return an invalid string

I think I worded my say in a confusing manner. I was asking for an explanation of why the the identifier $replace should be utilized in the regex pattern. Again, I'm not asking for an answer to the difference between $replace() and $replacecs(); I'm asking about the necessity behind it.

Ah sorry, then it's because \E could be in $me, which would be problematic for the regex pattern

Hmm neither seems to work.

on $*:ACTION:$(/\bslaps\b.*\b\Q $+ $replace($me,\E,\E\\E\Q) $+ \E\b/iS):#:{
msg $chan UNINSTALLRO, UNINSTALLRO~ UNI UNINSTALLRO, UNI UNINSTALLRO ~♪
}

I put that in my remotes tab and nothing happens when i get slapped.

Also, how do i change the color of the text that appears?

The code is working fine for me:
Code:
on $*:action:$(/\bslaps\b.*\b\Q $+ $replacecs($me,\E,\E\\E\Q) $+ \E\b/iS):#:{
  msg # UNINSTALLRO, UNINSTALLRO~ UNI UNINSTALLRO, UNI UNINSTALLRO ~♪
}
I'm not certain why it fails on you. The only thing I can think of is to make sure your remote is on by entering: /remote on

What color of text do you want it to appear?

Oh, i figured it out, i was trying to slap myself but the message wasnt triggering. It seems to only trigger if someone else slaps me.

I was thinking pink?

From the help file under ON TEXT

The same way you would type a message in a color. Put Ctrl-K and the color number into the message.
