Hi clockwerx

tahnks for your suggestions and feature requsts.

You are right, We have Win XP and not dos age of time,

Mirc is very old fashioned with dos commands,

We need a buddylist indeed.

If this is possible, di it and make it IM sytle.

Eyecandish.

It should be so easy like a simmple buddylist.

See

www.easymessage.net

it is sooo good.

But all thes mirc icons and hidden dos commands and the folderbrowsing with cstp or waht it is ,....

this is even more complacted than icq.

PLEASE make it simple to list a freind and a buddylist and to browse users,

IRC is already used for filetrading.
Add a gnucleus to it.

www.gnucleus.com is providing gnuc dna 1.000 in a few weeks.

this has g2 implemented

Thanks

If you like filesharing use a filesharing protocol. Whether DCC in IRC is used as one or not is irrelevant, it just means there are lots of idiots who do things the hard way for the sake of it.

Anyway, what's with the constant suggestions of making mIRC like every other program you can think of? If you like those programs why not use them aswell as/instead of mIRC? Everything doesn't have to be in one program.

A buddy list?! In IRC?! That defeats the whole idea of what IRC is. If you want buddy lists, go use IM. IRC and IM are NOT the same thing and should not be.

If you want ugly (my opinion) eye candy next to the nicks, get a script that does that. If you want a buddy list, get a script that does that... there have to be some out there. But don't have it as part of mirc.

IRC is a multi-network , multi-channel system and the way IRC (not mirc) is set up, checking for "buddies" (always hated that word... sounds like I'm in kindergarten) online requires you to be on the network they are on... unless you're using one of the programs that can scan the networks without being connected... which isn't worth using. If you're on IRC to chat, then you probably have various channels you go to. Just auto-join those channels, and you'll see who is online. And, if you really can't look in a nick list, use /notify.

Just keep IM out of IRC. It does not belong there.

And what do you suppose /run is for?


Try it out.


You might just be impressed.

There aren't any DOS commands in mIRC, however the command-line format (which I assume is what you mean) is the entire basis of the IRC protocol. Things like Services and many user/channel modes are non-standard and cannot be implemented effectively as a GUI in the current implementations, they simply differ too much from server to server and not enough detailed information is provided for the clients to dynamically create a complete interface for them. Until that changes people will always need to know at least some of the commands for the servers they use.

Just an fyi..

Quote:

Not to get into too much details, but IRC already supports Buddylists, its called Notify Lists--

/help /notify
/help on notify


From my previous post. mIRC Does have the ability to have a buddy list. Also, you can't speak for everyone as what "an irc script should look like" People have all different tastes, and please try to accept that. Some people like their coffee plain, others with 1 cream, 1 sugar. Some wiith 2 and 2, 1 and 2, iced, the list goes on...

In response to the very very first post in this thread: The fact (see end!!!) that this thread would be/is the most read thread has no bearings whatsoever on how many people would actually find this useful. What about all those people who are just curious why there are so many replies? What about people who replied and return later to see if there's any response to their posts?

as for your claim that your post to add WASTE is the most read: it is complete and utter bullsh*t. This thread at this time only has 200+ reads, your post on adding WASTE at this time has gathered 379 views, while the second-from-the-top post by Hammer has well over 8000, so what on earth are you basing this upon. 379 views in 18 days corresponds to an average of 21.1 views per day. Trashy's post on the ignore feature dated oct 28th has had 308 views, which is 32.2 posts per day. Hammer's post I mentioned earlier averages on about 24-25 views per day. This thread actually has a better average, but I doubt that's because people want to support your request. So far in two threads I see nothing but people who object to your suggestion. Perhaps it's time to stop repeating this request.

Regarding "DOS" commands... I believe the person was referring to Fservs. Although these are technically UNIX commands, someone who is not computer literate (or who is only Windows literate, anyhow) can easily mistake the two. Those are, however, the only commands that can be thought of to be DOS, though as I said they are UNIX.

I think it's about time we closed this discussion. Lets explain WHY mIRC has yet to produce anything in terms of intergrating propriatory IM software within the program.
First, mIRC is just that - mIRC, not MSN Messenger, not AOL Instant Messenger or any other IM client. It is designed to connect to IRC servers and provide a client interface to the user so that he/she can communicate via the IRC protocol. It is not designed to connect to other types of network, and I don't think Khaled will ever intend for it to do so.
Second, I do not see why people can't use one of the features mIRC WAS designed to use in order to get onto IM networks. Khaled put scripting into the client in order for the user to be creative and so that the user could implement any extra tools he/she may require using the client. Now, from memory - most of the leading mIRC scripting websites, ie www.mircscripts.org have really good addons that allow the user to connect to such IM services. IMO, I think trying to hardcode IM services into a client that uses an entirely DIFFERENT protocol is a WASTE of time.
Third, if you see that it's a popular subject, but it isnt getting much praise, don't come back and try and raise it when it is OBVIOUSLY not a wanted feature. It has been said that these features are not voted one, and popularity DOESNT win for Khaled. Khaled has limited resources, including time, and he doesnt visit the boards often, don't waste what little time he uses here on insisting that a feature should be implemented.

Apologies for the flame, I felt like correcting some foolish people for the night - have a good one guys...
