Preventing users to change nick

Post by keto »


This is my first post and also, my first Unreal experience.
I was wondering if there is a way to prevent that people changing their nick from "nick|18f52" to "nick"
Just to be clear, when people complete their age "18" sex "f" and city "52" via the applet, they get connected as mentionned above.
If they change their nick, the second branch dissapears.

i checked ERE Syntax i was unable to set a regex which prevent the | to be removed.

Hoping i'm clear enough and many thanks in advance for your help.

There is not a built-in way to prevent nickname changes, the best way would need to be done through a module that restricts the NICK command. I have a module that can do just this, located here:

If you want the NICK command available to users, but preserve anything after |, you will need to have someone make a module that does that.

Lastly, if all your users are connecting through a web portal, why not configure the web portal to do this for you instead of Unreal?
