I'm tired of double-clicking on a channel and winding up in the wrong one because of ending characters (like !?).

If a channel ends in some non-alphanumeric, can we see an optional box that lets you edit the channel name and possibly alerts users regarding channel 0?
(like you can edit the url before mirc opens the browser)

I am ever so sorry if this has been suggested before, but I didn't see anything in the results from searching.

that would be stupid, coz many users NAME their channels with those characters on purpose.
so users that have for example /join #ownage! or /join #sup?
in perform or in script on connect, they will be annoyed with those alerts

Are you able to double-click on a channel (and join it) in the perform or in the remote editor? I'm not.

You may want to try this Remote Script:
Code:
on ^*:hotlink:#?*:#:return
on *:hotlink:#?*:*:.timer 1 0 join $$input(You have clicked on a link that will open the Channel below. Are you sure that you want to open the channel?,eyw,Link Warning,$1)

Thank you, but I made it a feature suggestion because, hopefully, it would be seen as useful to many people.

Without people giving their support to the idea, why would Khaled want to waste his time adding this? If you think this is a good idea, you have to show it.

I think it may a good thing for some situations. As long as it can be disabled like the Url-Link-Warning there is no reson to say it would be stupid like Wraqq did.

It should have '[x] Always show this warning' in the box.

If it wasn't optional, 'you' wouldn't be the first to complain grin
