Undernet's interested in changing the maximum length of a nick. Currently it's 9 characters, the options are upping that to 12 or 15 characters. /msg #nicklen with your vote, votes are any number between 9 and 15. We'll use this information to help form our new policy of nick lengths" he asked the users of Undernet today over wallops.
Asmo goes on to say:
We asked Isomer when he might expect such a change might come in effect. "No idea, probably within a month or two." Such a change would require a vote by the admins of the network.
I thought the Forum would be a good place to discuss it as well, since many people do not use wallops. I assume it is all legitimate.
It's news to me!
