/UWHO not returning: "Idle"

/UWHO not returning: "Idle" - 30/07/19 08:08 AM

I have a question.

As i have figured out, the /UWHO <nick> returns "None" (in some cases).

I was wondering if you could make the /UWHO <nick> - return the Idle time (similar to the /WHOIS <nick> <nick>).

Any ideas?

There are a number of features in mIRC that issue /whois with only one nickname.

They could all be changed to specify the double nickname to retrieve a full whois reply.

That said, apart from the lookup being slower, do all ircds support this?

Update: It looks like /uwho already supports "/uwho nick nick". It may be that this was not implemented by default due to it being an issue with some ircds.

Some IRCd's rate limit remote commands. I've only tested these two:

freenode (ircd-seven):

whois KindOne KindOne
:tolkien.freenode.net 263 EvilOne WHOIS :This command could not be completed because it has been used recently, and is rate-limited.
:tolkien.freenode.net 318 EvilOne KindOne :End of /WHOIS list.

EFnet (ratbox):
whois KindOne KindOne
:irc.underworld.no 263 EvilOne WHOIS :Server load is temporarily too heavy. Please wait a while and try again.]
:irc.underworld.no 318 EvilOne KindOne :End of /WHOIS list.]

//uwho KindOne KindOne

Thanks for testing it out. That may well be the reason why using /whois in this way is not the default.
