/nick2 doesn't add a Ctrl+O tag when using multi-format tags. Use it at your own risk.

/nick2 enables you to change the "says" part at the end of your name.

RE: What is the differance...???
You don't see the difference in your nickname itself; you will see the difference in a conversation window...

<CTRL+O> is called an IRC-style shortcut (because they are also used in many IRC applications, like mIRC) which you can use to reset all the formatting tags that you've used in text and/or nicknames.

------------

You can use keyboard shortcuts to make something bold (using <CTRL+B>), something italic (using <CTRL+I>), something underlined (using <CTRL+U>)...

A special shortcut is <CTRL+K>, with that you can make colors. And it is that which you use in the nick command to make colors. eg:
/nick this is black and <CTRL+K>4this is red

When you enter that command (don't enter <CTRL+K> of course, that's a key stroke you need todo ;)), Messsenger Plus! will change your nick to "this is black and this is red".

But it automatically puts a "<CTRL+O>"-code (or format reset code) behind it so that every text following the nick is back to normal. So in a conversation it will look like:
this is black and this is red says:

When you use the "/nick2" command it will not automatically put the "<CTRL+O>"-code behind your nick and in a conversation it then will look like:
this is black and this is red says:

This means you can actually color the "says:" when you use the /nick2 command like so:
/nick2 this is black and and the says is blue<CTRL+K>12
will result in:
this is black and and the says is blue says:

Open a conversation window.
Write; /nick2 evilkosmoz
Press Ctrl+K
write; 4
Press Send

Now test it, send any message like `hello` in that conversation window. Check whether says is in red color or not.

Are you sure you are using the latest Messenger Plus! Live version (4.20.262).
Try doing these:
Open a conversation window
Write: /name
Press Ctrl+K
Write: 4evilkosmoz
Send that message
Go WLM's Options where you change your display name
Highlight "dot, $, 4" and press Ctrl+X
Paste that text at the end of your name by pressing Ctrl+V
Press OK on Options window
Write anything to a contact and check whether it is like this:
evilkosmoz says:
anything

If still you can't, paste the following text where you change your display name
evilkosmoz·$4

4 is the red color code.
But you should get the logic how those color codes are working.
CookieRevised reply on this thread is very useful.
