Note: The following functions only work on networks with services like nickserv and chanserv etc. The donation coder IRC channel is not currently on a network with those types of services, so these functions while it will not hurt to have them will likely not be used by you unless you are using a network which uses these types of services.
/alias identify .msg nickserv identify $$1-
Usage: /identify password
Explanation: Simply adds a /identify function that allows you to identify to nickserv without it showing your password on your screen after typing it. You could replace "$$1-" with your password in order to just type /identify and it type your password for you, but i personally prefer not to include my password in mIRC anywhere so that it isn't stolen by some external program.
/alias ns msg nickserv $1-
/alias cs msg chanserv $1-
/alias hs msg hostserv $1-
/alias ms msg memoserv $1-
Usage: /ns text to send to nickserv
Explanation: type /ns /cs etc for common network services, such as nickserv, chanserv, etc. many networks support this by default, but not all of them. This is good for a couple of reasons, first being if you accidentally typo /msg nickserve identify password for instance, someone could be on the nickname "nickserve" and end up receiving your password. The other advantage is obviously the ease of typing way less characters to get done what you would like to do.
