This falls somewhere between a bug report or a feature suggestion.
I use mIRC MDI in as a single maximized window, one channel or query visible at a time.
I typically use a series of /server -m <network> -i <identity> -jn <channels> for my On Start, such that the initial barrage of joins do not flicker about my display and steal focus with each join. They quietly open a new tab in the switchbar and treeview.
When reconnecting to a server, however, mIRC rejoins each channel in a noisy way by activating each window until all channels have been rejoined. During this period, it's impossible to type commands or use mIRC until all 180 or 560 channels have been rejoined across multiple networks.
The same problem exists when connecting to a BNC (such as ZNC) where it appears to mIRC that the server is force joining you to channels upon initial connection.
Would there be a way to create an option of [x] Rejoin Channels Minimized, that only affects joins not performed by immediate user action (such as typing /j #chan or double-clicking)?
Or [x] Rejoin channels without activating.
or [x] Rejoin channels to background.
They don't necessarily have to be minimized, just not in front or grabbing focus.
