    • Reconnect gracefully after disconnects
  • Send periodic PINGs to the server to make sure server is still up
  • Text entry area keep focus
  • Channel Nick List
    • (bug) op/voice status does not get updated in nick list for users that join after the channel is first opened

  • Add loose focus marker in channel scene & query/msg scene
  • Add single nick text field to server info scene and server table in database
    • If left empty, use nick from identity scene in the cookie on connect (the "hint" text for the server nick field should explain this in a few words.)
  • Add highly used commands that spawn a popup for input to server-status's app menu. commands include: nick, join, msg/query, etc
  • "Allow landscape" toggle in preferences, should work on all scenes, should change class of containing div on horizontal (so we can reformat items in the page via css)
  • Actually use secondary and tertiary nicks if told the primary is taken
    • Make function to add characters/numbers to primary nick and try again if user failed to enter secondary/tertiary, or it already exhausted all user-entered alternates.
