#17045 new defect

Twitch IRC does not understand "Away"

Reported by: kingu Owned by: elb
Milestone: Component: IRC
Version: 2.10.12 Keywords: Twitch IRC Away


"The IRC server received a message it did not understand."Away""

string 883 ../libpurple/protocols/irc/msgs.c:670 pidgin.pot for 2.x.y branch

Connect to twitch IRC

Set up automatic "Away" status after inactivity: Tools>settings ↓ "Change to this status when inactive: "Away"

The error message will propagate after the set amount of time, for the amount of times Away-status is triggered, and I think also the amount of rooms connected to.

It is inconvenient to click away these messages, and I haven't found a suitable workaround.

Silencing errors on a per-message specific basis would perhaps fix this, or just not sending Away to the Twitch IRC servers.

This is a bug in the Twitch IRC servers.

The easiest workaround for this is to set your auto-away status to a complex status that leaves your Twitch IRC account as available.
