I use timers from time to time. Unless I have failed to find something, they are all global, by which I mean that they are all visible to all server windows. I would prefer that there be an option that makes a timer visible only in the server window in which it is created, which I would call "local."

Have I missed something? i.e. is the local option already and I just didn't read carefully?

You should post this in Feature Suggestions, I was thinking
the same thing a while back that if the /timers command is
used that it should only display the timers for the current
connection and dynamic/global timers. Also, switches could
be added to specify which timers to display...

/timers would display global timers and local timers for the current connection
/timers -g would display only global timers
/timers -l would display only local timers for the current connection
/timers -gl would display global timers and local timers for the current connection

...just a thought. smile

~ Edit ~

Oh and a switch used when creating a timer to force the timer
name to be specified when stopping, so it can't be stopped using
/timers off but I think this one has already been suggested.

Nevermind, I posted it. wink

Your /timers and /timers -gl do the exact same thing, if the default /timers behavior is to be changed, then there is no need for /timers -gl. However there should be a /timers -a to show all timers regardless of local/global and associated connection.
