The RPL_MOTDSTART (375) numeric is part of the Message of the Day (MOTD) reply, and is also sent during the initial registration burst when new users successfully connect to the network. It introduces the MOTD, and the following RPL_MOTD line(s).


Format

:server 375 <nick> <info>
  • <nick>: Nickname of the connecting user.
  • <info>: Information about the MOTD.

The <info> parameter typically has the form "- <server> Message of the day -", as shown in the examples below.
