Description (last modified by akempgen)

Whenever I try to connect to Efnet, I get the following:

NICK eobet
USER eobet 0 * 
NOTICE AUTH *** Looking up your hostname...
NOTICE AUTH *** Found your hostname, cached
NOTICE AUTH *** Checking Ident
NOTICE AUTH *** No Ident response
:Prague.CZ.EU.AsylumNet.Org 433 * eobet Nickname is already in use.
461:  USER Not enough parameters

Googling, I found the following on the Opera support boards:

Now, this is interesting. Seems like you may have found a small bug. Aparantly you have not entered anything in the field for "Real name" when creating the account. Seems like Opera in that situation will not send the USER command correctly. It sends "USER opera 8 *" when it should have been sending "USER opera 8 * :" (notice the added colon). I'm pretty sure that it will work if you enter something for your Real name though (you may enter anything there; it doesn't have to be your actual name, in case you don't want to give it away on IRC).

I checked and I hadn't put anything in the Real Name field and I did get connected properly when I did enter a "real name". Perhaps Colloquy suffers from the same bug/feature?
