I wouldn't say big big.

Mostly just watching messages and saving some information gathered from them.

I'd have to learn how to program them first though. smile

Difference between private chats between users and a channel is that private chats just send messages to users and you have to create and admin a channel. I was looking for something more user friendly than having to create and admin channel before you can chat.

Creating a channel means /join #blahblah - that wasn't exactly hard. There's no "admin'ing" required, just set maybe +ni and then /invite the users you want to be a part of the discussion - not really any different from inviting users to group chats in IM's (from what I remember).


Spelling mistakes, grammatical errors, and stupid comments are intentional.

Yes, I know. Not that hard.

Not as easy as "drag and drop name to window" though. wink

I think turtle's point is, he wants to send messages to people who are completely uninterested in reading messages from him. Channels defeat the whole purpose of catching someone off guard, and it is usually difficult to attain 100% of a user's undivided attention in a #channel... where as a private message means that You and You Alone are that person's central focus of thought.

The whole point of a #channel is that users get to Opt-In by /joining them and Opt-Out by /parting them, where as private messages are unavoidable and forced upon a user (See turtle's: "drag & drop")... leaving them only with /ignore as a last resort. Turtle is obviously the type of person who can't get along with people long enough for them to hang around a channel with him.

turtle, try some real social skills instead of dragging and dropping people.

This thread is deader than dead, you necrophiliacs.

some people stay online not to be flooded, and if you imagine lots of people addyou on your buddy list, and you have an isp transfer cap, and transfer is running out, every byte or bit counts.

That's not what I'm up to, Racoon. :P

You can hammer someone with private messages now against their will.

I'm just looking for ways to make things simple and user friendly.

trenzterra, would make a negligable difference. Extra 60 bytes here and there.
