Send pm to guest user for nick change

By RusselB on Aug 09, 2009

This was written for a request in the forums. It simply sends a pm every 5 minutes to a user with a nick that starts with guest, until they leave the channel, or until they change their nick to one that doesn't start with guest.

on *:NICK: {  nick_check $nick $newnick }
on *:PART:#: {  nick_check $nick }
on *:QUIT: {  nick_check $nick }
on *:KICK:#: {  nick_check $knick }
alias -l nick_check {
  if $timer($1) {
    $+(.timer,$1) off
    set %g $remtok(%g,$1,1,32)
  }
  if $2 && (guest* iswm $2) {
    $+(.timer,$v2) 0 300 .msg $v2 welcome to #channel Please make a new nick by typing: /nick newname
    set %g $addtok(%g,$2,32)
  }
}
on *:JOIN:#: {
  if (guest* iswm $nick) {
    set %g $addtok(%g,$v2,32)
    $+(.timer,$v2) 0 300 .msg $v2 welcome to #channel $&
      Please make a new nick by typing: /nick newname
  }
}

@Weasel: There is nothing in the code I posted to keep you from joining the channel with an unregistered nick. What would keep you from joining, is if the room already had mode +R set, but this has nothing to do with my posted code.

Thanks guys for helping me on this idea. Works great. Newbie guests are now changing their Guest* to "newnick" lol Got to luv newbies. Rate this a 10 from me, because it works.

I originally had the idea in the forum request regarding this script, but RusselB made it better. Nice one! :-)

It's not spam if you are using a guest nick where they don't want guest nicks to be used, and it's more polite than setting the channel to +R so that only registered nicks can join.
