I propose a new look for mIRC... mIRC still seems like a terminal (old school). I think mIRC should have a user interface simular to yahoo messenger, AIM, MSN Messenger, Camfrog. I so want to see a treeview structure to organizing windows/channels/messages/transfers/etc... Without have to use a DLL and 500 lines of script code...

If you're talking about a treeview switchbar implemented, this has been suggested many times. What you could do (before or if it is added) to free some room up on your switchbar is if you're on 3 servers, with 5 channels,sends/gets,@winows on each server hold down the Alt key and single click the Status Window. It then hides all the windows associated with that connection, holding down Alt and single clicking again "ungroups" them so they're all visible.

What's wrong with old school? mIRC seems to me like a
stout, robust IRC client and I would hate for it to be
changed to appear like a cheesy Instant Messenger
in any way.

I'm also talking no parent container all windows open on desktop... a channel window doesn't need to be open in order to be joined to the channel... the window can be opened later and the channel log used to fill in old messages...

lol yup, it's funny how all the unnecessary crap in XP is
enabled by default and everything else is enabled when
it should be disabled or disabled when it should be enabled.

Nice tongue twister there (slightly off topic)...

it should be disabled or disabled when it should be enabled."

Well, as someone else said, mIRC isn't an "Instant Messenger" and I certainly do not want it to look like any of those. What I wouldn't mind seeing is the ability to do treeviews and stuff without the aid of DLLs.

And yet, skinning mIRC is not very difficult to do. Changing major things about how it looks (such as skins that make a program's shape change from a normal square/rectangle to a circle or whatever) aren't so easily done, of course.

Signed.
In my opinion, mIRC needs a new look and improves, especially webcam support.
Why?
70% or more of the people on the Internet have Webcam and cant use it on mIRC cause mIRC doesnt have support for this. Really sux!

I imagine somebody in the channel:
(Nick) Anybody wanna chat? I have webcam
(Nick2) Sure, let go Nick.
(Nick) What is your MSN?
* Nick quit IRC and go MSN
* Nick2 quit IRC and go MSN

This is sux, guys! mIRC needs this.
Sure that some people dont like Webcam, so ignore and dont use. But let who likes to use on mIRC.

Thats the true!

I hope to god mIRC stays the way it is, and nothing drastic is added or changed, it's fine like this and I love it the way it is.

I agree debug... Although that is something easily scripted with the use of DLL's or launching a web based app from a script using triggers and events... what I'm proposing is making the interface for mirc adjustable internally (or skins support, as someone suggested ealier)...

Like I always say.. if something is added as an option (which you can simply ignore) it shouldn't bother you as you don't have to use it, but the people that want to use it can do so.

Riamus2:

Changing a program's shape is an extremely simple thing to do (it only takes a few API calls), as is changing the way windows and controls look.

I find that people care about what mIRC implements because they care about mIRC as a whole. I always see this argument that "if you can disable it, what's the problem?" I tend to disagree with this because that's just a selfish point of view. Personally, I care about how mIRC is perceived by others, and I don't want to see others using mIRC like the next MSN Messenger so even though I wouldn't have to use it in such a way, I wouldn't want to see anything like it in mIRC.

Regards,

People already use mIRC to chat on MSN Messenger and a variety of other chat networks (I know that was just an example but I'm saying that the scripting language allows things like that already)

Anyway, again, why do you care how people use mIRC if you don't have to use it that way? The only time I care about how people are using mIRC is when people come here thinking mIRC is for something other than what it is (ie: filesharing)

I think the only person who that would be selfish for is Khaled making him work harder, but as it stands mIRC has many features with the ability to enable and disable at will. I personally don't think it's selfish for anyone else other than the author because IF something gets implemented and not everyone is for the idea, there should be an option to turn it off. There is no problem if there is ability to turn it off because then everyone will be happy, the people who were for the feature can leave it enabled and the people who were against can turn disable it.
