#12303 new enhancement

Away message for IRC is shown every message instead of once

Reported by: NishaKitty Owned by: elb
Milestone: Patches welcome Component: IRC
Version: 2.7.1 Keywords:


The auto away for the IRC component of Pidgin keeps displaying an away message for each message you send to the person who is away, rather than what the other protocols follow (AIM, MSN, XMPP). I was wondering if this could be changed to be more inline with the other protocols behaviours, Thanks lots.

Wasn't sure if I should mark this as patch or enhancement...

We show the message every time the server sends it to us. If the server is sending it on every message you send, we show it that way. (I don't think that's normal behavior, but maybe on some ircds.)

Implementing this requires keeping extra state on possible non-buddy users. As such, I'm not likely to do it, but I would accept a well-written patch to implement it.

Ah okay, my coding ability is limited so hopefully someone else will pick it up thanks though.
