Would be nice if there was a possiblity to assign a hostmask to a nick in the notify list as well. Now with a commonly used nick I get notified whevener someone is using that nick, instead of just the person I am looking for.

And / or only perform the notify on specified networks.

if i'm not mistaken in the way notify works via the IRC protocol, you can't do a notify based on hostmask. however, you can configure mIRC to do a whois on notify, and from there perhaps you can script it to filter the notifies based on the hostmask. just a random thought at 3AM, after having spent all of my day at a lan party or driving to/from said lan party wink

mIRC uses ison to check wether someone in the notify list is online or not. or uses the watch list of some servers who support it.

there is no way to check for hostmasks...

something that CAN be done and what I would like to be added, is that you can add a hostmask to the nick so it only says the person is online if both the nick and the hostmask match.

you can do this with code, but you can't modify the internal notify list/window with it...


If it ain't broken, don't fix it!

Most ircd's that supports WATCH that i have seen also send the hostmask which you can get using $notify($nick).addr

but you still add the nick to the watch list... and like I said, there are ways to see AFTER your get the notify if the hostmask is correct

you can't set notify's / watches on hostmasks... only on nicks and check for hostmask afterwards
