#10690 new enhancement

Protected ops don't show on IRC user list

Reported by: ognobogvoshno Owned by: elb
Milestone: Component: IRC
Version: 2.6.3 Keywords: irc ops userlist user list


As I understand it, pidgin's assigning of icons in the user list on IRC is based on /names. (i.e. +johnsmith gets the voice icon). & is ignored in that list - I suggest making a new icon for protected ops so &johnsmith doesn't just show up in regular users

  • Type changed from patch to enhancement

There is no patch or actual code change on this ticket. It should not be set to patch.

That said, I don't recall & being a standard mode character, thus our supporting it would be contingent upon whether or not the various IRC daemons treat that the same way when used as a mode character. If it means "protected ops" on daemon X and something else on daemon Y, then we'll continue to just ignore it.

Not only is it not standard, it's almost completely broken -- & is a valid channel specifier in the original standard.

If the server in question sends an 005 with PREFIX=, we should at least be stripping it off, I believe. If it does, and we're not, that's a bug.

Servers such as Rizon's have been using the ampersand to denote +ao (protected OPs) in a channel for some time now. Since most IRCds would not allow the use of an ampersand in a nick, I'm afraid I do not understand why this has not yet been applied.
