|Summary||0003335: Notice before bad password connect when password does not match allow::password|
|Description||It would be nice to have a setting to send a notice to users when they fail to provide the proper connect password. Something that can be configurable in the conf. This would provide a way to allow private networks to tell someone trying to connect why they are not allowed on, or where to go to get help.|
Conf setting such as set::badpass-notice
An example of what someone may put there is "This is a private network, and you must specify the proper password to connect. Please visit www.example.com/badpass.html for more info or to get help."

I like it. There could be downfalls that users should know, that such people knowing that a certain password is required will cause some people to try harder etc. But it would be a nice option for users.
Since 4.x (I forgot which version) the rejection error messages are configurable.
They are here: https://www.unrealircd.org/docs/Set_block#set::reject-message
Note that with 5.x we have a slightly different behavior for wrong password, as it will continue the other allow blocks.
Old bug.. so with the knowledge and features of 12 years later:
Also, for the usecase you describe: even better would be to use SASL and authprompt module, which allows authenticating against specific accounts and asks to enter a password interactively.
