the one thing that would make mirc the best! complete and full skining, with scripted dialog skins and all! i would get mirc with skins even if the download was 4 times as big as 6.03

Would you care to explain why this would make mIRC "the best"?

Just wondering, if you skin windows using a themexp skin or whatever, then surely mIRC should inherit the skinned interface, all the way through to the dialogs?


Because the dialogs are Windows "child dialogs".

Mind you, I hate skins, so I haven't tested (and refuse to try) this out....

why bloat mirc with these type of things when u can download scripts that apply this same thing your asking for ... if u want an all decked out irc client download a script someone already made ... i for one wouldnt want mirc to be so bloated because have that "pretty" [censored] serves no functionallity ... id sacrifice looks and appearance for functionallity anyday

the point is, i want to be able to use mirc own features to skin dialogs, nopt dlll's or whatever, because 1 how it is done, i havnt figured out yet, 2 mirc just needs this feature.

Well sorry but I really hope Khaled doesn't add this. You've made it very clear that there is NO reason to add it. When you were asked multiple times why it was needed and the only reason you can come up with is it "just needs [it]," that proves that there is no valid reason it should be added.

Well again, instead of answering WHY IS IT NEEDED. You decided to post something yet again that is NOT going to convince anyone it is needed. So please, tell us why this is needed and why, as you say, it will make "mIRC the best"?

Heh, ok. Well based on the responses of everyone here, you've failed to convince a single person that skins are the greatest thing ever. So when Khaled comes to these boards and sees you say it is great, and everyone else says it isn't and you refuse to give a reason it is great, what makes you think that he is then going to decide to add it?

what i cant figure out is how to skin dialogs, but thats besides the point, the point of making mirc was to have it being poular, this skinning would make it even more popular, compared to mozillas chat, xchat, ect ect ect

Make mIRC more popular? Lets see, you said you want it, 7 people said they don't. Now doing a little math, 87.5% of the people don't want it. How exactly does it make it more popular when 87.5% of people who responded said they don't want it? Popular literally means supported by the populous, or the people. In this case 87.5% of the people do NOT support it. How can it therefore be said to be popular?
