There is opion to make folder for each network.
What I would like to use is also a folder for each channel.
(Yes I know it can be scripted)

I think it can help a bit when sorting through thousands of logfiles.

However I can't come up with good suggestion as of where should private conversations go...
probably one folder per person as well... (allthough this probably creates way too many folders)

And of course it should be option (not by default) just like categorizing by network name is.

That doesn't quite make sense..

Instead of thousands of log files to sort through, you'll have thousands of folders... And since there is only one log file per channel (if you ignore mIRC's log merging algorithm), each folder will contain one file, defeating the purpose of folders.


edit: oops.

The suggestion for private messages is good though-- but again, instead of one per user, it would be good if mIRC created one folder "private" for all private conversations, to keep them away from channels.

Well not necessarily. mIRC has an option to date logfiles (by day, week or month) as well, so you might have many #*.date.log files in the folder, if there was a "Make channel folders" option they could be grouped...
Code:
/Logs
  |-	/Network
	    |-	/#channel1
		    |-	#channel1.20071001.log
			#channel1.20071002.log
			#channel1.20071003.log
			...
	    |-	/#channel2
		    |-	#channel2.20071001.log
			#channel2.20071002.log
			#channel2.20071003.log
			...

I wouldn't use it myself, but nonetheless, it isn't a bad idea really.

I like 'network structures', that's nice.

If this could be selective, so it could use dir structures for channels, or queries, or both, then
I'd use it.

Edit:

argv[0] already said the jist of this.. wink Didn't see that.
