#262 new enhancement

Lack of channel mode display on IRC (and SILC)

Description (last modified by rlaager)

The display of channel modes on IRC (and possibly SILC) is still missing.

Channel modes could be displayed in the window title or tab e.g. "(+pt) #mychannel".

For IRC there is a dirty workaround: A user can open up the Debug console and manually use command /mode to get information he wants.

(gaim2.0.0beta6, WinXP Pro SP2) (This is a modified resubmit of a still valid request (originally on SourceForge: Feature Requests item #981080 by BB

How would you use the channel mode information?

comment:2 Changed 12 years ago by gw

You would know it and for example:

  • know that you can't set the topic if flag +t is set and you don't have ops
  • know that there is a limit (+l) for number of users that are allowed on a channel (and if you compare it to the number of users currently on it, you would know if you will be able to rejoin in a short time if you just quickly part the channel)
  • see the currently set key (+k pass) for joining channels and tell it to somebody else who you wish to invite
  • and also remember the key (+k pass) so that you can rejoin later
  • know that a person that is not on a channel can send messages to it (+n)
  • know that other users can see that you are on this channel (+s or +p)
  • ...

So the main purpose of this is to see and know more information about different channels. At current state a user with op status can set channel modes manually with /mode command, but later this could also be implemented with a special window accessible under right-click or a drop down thing or something like that...

Sean, given the existence of the infopane, this should go there.
