Notices on IRC

Reported by: RawrSean Owned by: elb

Description

As you know, when you get a notice on Pidgin (IRC), it appears in a different window.

My queston(s): How can I make it so the notices appear in the same window, as other clients, (Like mIRC), do.

OR

How can I make it so that If I reply to the notice VIA the window it opened, reply a notice, because if you reply to a notice it goes to the other person as a message, and that is unwanted usually, hence the "notice feature".

  • Type changed from defect to enhancement

Notices appear in IM windows for a number of reasons in Pidgin, and this isn't likely to change soon. For one, the "usual" IRC client behavior of notices appearing in the currently active window is somewhat bogus in Pidgin, as the currently active window may not be an IRC window at all. Sending to the most recently active IRC window runs the risk of burying a notice in an unpredictable location.

There have been previous requests for a dedicated "server" window where such messages can go, which is a possibility.

Replying to a notice with a notice is not likely to be made a default behavior, as it is not clearly more correct than replying with a standard privmsg. You may reply to a notice with the /notice command if you like.

Then, can it be made so that if you get a notice while the active window is an IRC window in which you've spoken in within a user defined amount of time, it'll show it in that window, else, new window?
