Use the -n switch in the join command.

/join -n #channel

/help /join

If your other windows are maximized, so too will be
new channel windows when opened with the -n switch.

Try connecting, then maximize each channel window, then save the position of each channel (while maximized) either one at a time, or using Save All, while all of them are maximized (they should overlap each other), then disconnect, reconnect and try your code again.

Did you maximize the first status window and save its position?

Odd, it works fine here.

I connected to a server, maximized the status window, then used /join -n #channel, and then activated #channel using the treebar. It was maximized.

Don't get snippy with me just because you have some kind of magical bug that only appears on your machine. It works as expected for me and everyone else, so I'm guessing it's just idiot operator error. Get a clue.

~ Edit ~

This magical bug is such a pain in the ass that it took you over a month to respond?

no, its not so annoying, because thats just about how much i use mirc.

and considering that my whole mirc interaction is start it, wait for connections and joins to happen, and then click on treebar - yeah, it has to be operator error.

and since you can talk for everyone here, i should watch out for that huge ego not to fall upon me.

oh yeah, get a clue!
