Many moons ago, when IRC was still a hairy, smelly scruff of a chat medium (unlike it's relativly clean-cut, fresh smelling decendent), joining channel #0 was the way to exit all channels you were in. It is the intentional behaviour of mIRC to do this also smile

Someone once told me that this is a bug that sends all your serial keys to Khaled or some elite hacking group lol, of course i know that's probably bs, but still i'd like to know why it does this?

Actually .. it's the server that parts you from all
channels when you join that .. not mIRC itself.

Yes, that is 'BS'. All it does is make mIRC (and any other standards-complient IRC client) exit all channels.

make a channel lock in the config.. "you lock all channels beggin with 0 unvalid ones".. that means that people cant join them, its like som network have lock on abusive channels.. rasistic ones, and also som porno channels..

if you do /join 0 you will part all channels...

So it has nothing to do with channel locks either seeing how "0" is not a valid channel name. Also, seeing how comma's cant be used in a channel name either doesnt help. the only reason you part all channels on /join #100,000 is because to the server you are joining channel #100 and then after the comma it sees 000 which is 0, so it thinks it wants you to part all channels, so that is what it does.

And with what naki said in mind, it is conceivable that you can find the "partall" code in your IRCd of choice. This is, however, standard behavior and should be left alone. It is conceivable that some clients expect this behavior and use and rely upon it to function correctly.

I'm actually wondering why Khaled has it join the listed channels, not not seperate it. I mean as Raccoon said, a comma is only a delimiter, and not a valid character and realistically should not be included in mirc's join (just as a period, parentesis, etc isn't). That's just my $0.02.

Because it is on the IRC protocol level, to join a list of comma delimited channels instead of several separated JOIN commands. mIRC is doing what it should.

I wish mIRC further honored this by consolidating re-connect re-joins into a single JOIN command.

I'm not questioning mIRC's method of joining several channels, just its method of a join per double-click. When you click on a channel in a sentance, you join one at a time. I am saying that channels listed in delimited form should also take on this property of joining the one you click, instead of those prefixing and herafter.

It does to an extent. If you click on "#somechan,0" or "#somechan,#another" you will only join #somechan.

Well if it doesn't work all the time, couldn't this be classified a bug?

About the Status stuff, it's probably due to the fact that many scripts halt the ON INPUT event and/or customize the /say command, forgetting to check if $active is "Status Window" - so, using "/say blah" when status is the active window would make it call "/msg Status Window blah", sending "Window blah" to anyone with the nick "status".
In this case, it isn't a mIRC bug.. it's the scripter's fault instead.
