There are a couple of changes in 6.1 that I think are a step backwards:

1) It no longer seems to be possible to select several channels at one wioth Shift/Click and then to join them all at once. You now seem to have to join individually.

2) Under Options, Servers, the layout is poor. You almost always want to connect to a srver, and only very rarely add a new one. The Connect block of buttons should swap places with the ones for adding servers.

Welcome to one month ago.

If you take a little of your time and spend it on using the search feature, I can assure you that you will find a lot of discussions related to these two issues.

Yes but I don't think anyone actually did the smart thing and ask for it to be changed in the Feature Suggestions forum like he has.

AFAIK all the other 'discussions' were just random bitches in General Discussion or Bug Reports.


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

Kinda off topic, but up there with a "Step back" (almost..)

I just found out If-Then-Else was removed from the help, and replaced with /if.. Now I suppose that makes sense, but i have NEVER seen

/if (Bleh) { bleh }

I would like to suggest Khaled to either go back to the original listing in the help or add the second reference >:D

I agree. For things like if, else, elseif, while, goto, I personally tend to think of them as part of the language, not identifiers, and I assume most people think like that as well. I would never have thought to /help /if, I might do /help if, but never with the /. Not to mention, if I did /help if the first match would be "if-then-else" so I would still find it, but if I type /help if now, it won't select "/if".
