What do you think about the new nickname length?

Post by `Dj »

As you all probably know the nickname length on Undernet has increased from 9 characters to 12. What do you think about this modification in the nickname length? Are you satisfied with it or do you think it was better before?
We are waiting for your comments.

I don't think it matters that much.
For the guys who used to be one dalnet or other servers before it surely matters but for the hardcore undernet people it's not really like necessary i mean they probaly wont use it... (i think) cause they are used to 9 letter nicknames for such a long time and they have a nick and they usually don't change it.

Myself i don't use it ... got a 5 letter nick and it's just fine :)
But it is a good thing for all those whining people who kept asking about longer nick lenghts... :D

I think they should have kept it to the old 9 letters system =) makes them different from the other big servers ;)

Personally i think it's nice and alright, but on the other hand it is quite annoying to see people using a full nick and just add "BRB / AWAY / BBL / BBS (etc.etc.etc.)" behind it, then i wonder: "Then what is the use of the 12 digit nickname?"

And maybe it's just me, but for eggdrops it's kinda like a pain in the butt too, all the adjustment settings and changing stuff...

Conclusion: it's alright, but Undernet is 9 digits

I think its nice , but is being used in stupid ways.

What is the point in having nick^away , nick^tv or nick^bath?

We have the /away function to tell people if we are away from IRC...

Just my thoughts.

I find it usefull as my nickname is 9 characters long and if it`s already taken i can add an ^, _, ` or any other character!
So it`s great!

I really agree with simba, having 12 chars is like having more options for kids to spread their childish attitude having several nicknames starting from their main nickname with 5-7 chars or more... and after they can add more and more extra chars such as: ` ^ - _ | [ { bla bla bla, which I really find it so annoying...

I`m into accurate nicknames... clear nicknames, not all those things added to the nickname, I really find them useless...

My thought...
