Nickname that starts with ONLY 1 letter...

Post by K8oard »

You know... I was having a chat lately with somebody about it...

I was saying that users that has their nickname only with 1 ONE letter, such as: A, B, C bla bla bla all the way to the Z, they are all flooders and crackers (putty servers crackers), I`m not talking about nut crackers... and those guys are fighting even with their mums to have their nicknames like that, dunno why...

I meant... it`s there a culture or something or is there a reason to have these kind of nicknames, such as: A from Adrian, B from Bobby, C from Chris and so on... ? The other guy said that it got nothing to do with being proud having a nickname that starts with only 1 letter, it`s just that this way they become VIPs in a way... because they feel proud having a nickname like that.

That goes for the channels aswell, such as #A #B and so on which are full of well known flooders, most of those channels (:

/me wonders... what is all about.

1 letter nicknames are being used because some servers do not reserv every single letter username in the U:lines.

There's no need to feel VIPs, but to feel lucky that they have been killed yet by the other servers.

Another one would be why do lamers steel nicks such as zT? Mostly romanians.....what is it with that? Do you feel cool to have such a nick? zT and other bots are on the network to help people. To make helpers life easier.... Sometimes i don`t understand humans......mostly my own people, romanians...

IMO they do that just to have a chance to get some information, let say that someone trys to login to zT bot and he or she didn't changed if the nickname was "taken" or not, and he send the password to someone else and not the bot that he wanted too.

You went too far....Those who steal nicknames like zt don`t think about that. They just do it so they can say: Hey look, i stoled the zT nickname...well now that you told them a better reason...prepare for some nick steals :)

Hello. I would like to tell my oppinion about this too.. =)
They are stealing those A,B,C.. etc. nicknames because they want to be the highest people on Undernet.. if I was one of them I would kill myself because I don't fight on nicknames.. if I had the nickname M and someone stoled it.. that's it, I don't need to fight about it.. IRC is a multiplayer notepad.. it's just for FUN. :)

Simply deny single letter nicks for users on the network, they did it on quakenet too. (Probably on other networks too)
Don't bother reading, I'm just the lame botlender, right ?

Well a way to stop this, though i'm not sure if it needs to be stopped, is by adding a U:Line in server's conf files that has all single letters nickname in it. Personaly i think people do not trust people with single letter nickname as the people who own such nicknames think. I wouldnt trust any single letter nickname beside X and W which are in the server's U:lines. But this is just my oppinion.

As X and W nickname have added a line from the server and cannot be used so should the other single letter nicks should be restricted from public use.

most of the servers block the 1 letter nickname, actually you'll see that when a server get linked and there is anyone with a 1 letter nickname he or she will be killed.

The rest of the letters of the alphabet are reserved by the server and D is the drone scanner....

How about this?

If they use a server that do not block the 1letter nicknames, then they will be able to use it.

Atleast the server i use blocked 1 letter nickname.

I believe all undernet servers use the same configuration settings and so all the letters up to T are available..

Not realy DT, each server has differences in the IRCD.Config file so some servers use U lines to keep out one letter nicknames others use U line to keep out W, X, NickServ and ChanServ as far as i know if I said something wrong please correct me.

You are kinda wrong Theabyss, Homer you too. Servers must have almost the same ircd.conf as this could lead to mass kills and splits. Remember when the nick lenght changed but not on all server at the same time and even if you were connected to a server that allowed nicks with 12 letters some got killed.....

Same thing here. Some servers don`t allow one letter nicknames however that doesn`t mean that when you are connected on such a server you can`t change your nickname into one of the letters....
