what does exactly "Alternative", "UserNick" mean in the "Quick Connect" window?
"nick" means your first channel nickname option, am I right?
"Alternative" means your second channel nickname option, am I right?
does "usernick" means your tertiary nick option??
what is "RealName" used for??

Thanks Advanced.

Alternative = Alternative nick
Usernick = Login nick for a IRC server or a BNC.
Realname = The realname field returned when you are /whois'd.

thanks Amundsen, I have one doubt that I guess is not worthy of making another post
I have read that "/kill" command bans a user from a server, is that true?
Actually I only want to stop recieving messages from that user, is the "/kill" commmand the best choice for that task?

Thanks Advanced.

/kill is a server operator command, only they can use it.

If you want to stop seeing messages from a user, you can use /ignore or Options -> Ignore.

Thanks man

one doubt though...
I have notice, that if your first nickname and your alternative nickname is already taken, you get the first nickname you choosed followed by a sufix "__" is it set by AdiIRC, can it be configured???
Thanks Advanced.

Not yet, I have that on TODO for when I rewrite the serverlist in next version probably.

so man, you are the developer? congrats!, nice software, man now I got more confidence in asking you, is that "autojoin the Channel number 3, that is not named in a BanList" possible to do with AidIRC scripting language?
Thanks man, congrats again.

Yes I am the developer.

Can try explain what exactly you need the number 3 for.

Thanks for your replay Amundsen
I will like to autojoin lets say the third channel from a server ( sorted in descending order by its number of users) but that is not in a BanList.
Here is my post, do you remember?

Yes I remember, but I would like to know why you need this, maybe there is a better way.

Is because, number of user inside channels is always changing, I would like to stay in the channel with the highest number of users in it, also I would like to avoid entering in any GAY channel, (I don't pretend to do any ofense, Iam just straight, you know..)
So using that script could keep me kinda updated in the most ranked channel.
Thanks Advanced. man

I see, this is complicated, not sure how it can be done through scripting, need to think about it.
