This is halfway between a bug report and a feature request I guess.

When yelling at someone in all caps, if you start typing their nick and then tab complete it, it goes to "proper" case, i.e. however it is normally displayed.

This makes it obvious that I am lazy and did not type their nick out manually. Can this be fixed to all-caps a nick when the rest of the line is in caps or when I start typing the nick out in all caps?

Example of problem follows:

[00:00] <@banjax> YOU ARE A DIRTY FALSE, sheep_toucher
[00:00] <sheep_toucher> i am
[00:00] <sheep_toucher> Satanica is pretty okay

I'll wager this will never be implemented, as its detection would be much more hassle than the feature it would provide.

However, there is a cure. Simply do this when yelling:

Code:
//say $upper(yelling goes here)


Type that and when you get to their name, type it partially, tab, and then when completed, hit enter. As long as everything is inside of the $upper() identifier, it will say everything in all capitals.

Example:

Code:
//say $upper(zmodem you are so terrible!)


Output:

Code:
ZMODEM YOU ARE SO TERRIBLE!
