Hey everyone,

I am suggesting a feature like /pause .
It would be used like this:
alias example {

  • echo -a Waiting 30 seconds.
    pause 30
    echo -a Finished pausing.

}

It would echo "Waiting 30 seconds", pause 30 seconds, and then echo "Finished Pausing.".

Good idea, until (if) that gets added, you can use /sleep by Online.

Couldn't you just use a timer to call an alias in the meantime?

Hey, well sure.

For example:
{
echo -a Start
timer 1 30 resume
}
alias resume echo -a End

That would always work. But its not worth making a timer and an alias just for that delay, if i could just simply use something as simple as /pause 30 :^)

I thought is was a good idea too:
My Pause Alias

But it might be worthwhile reading all the other comments in the thread too.

Cheers,

His idea is more than likely to pause an individual process as opposed to freezing mIRC completely.
